What can one do with seven days in CA?
One can spend a few nights with an old friend/new coworker, find an apartment (as Sid points out in comments, the link in the previous post is no longer good; and yes, that's a washer and dryer in the corner of that pic of the bathroom!),
spend a few more days with a friend from grad school and her beautiful baby boy, work half a day at the shiny new job, spend a few more days with a roommate from college, and visit Napa.
Good God, I miss mountains!
