Friday and, wow internet…
…I think I actually hit all five days this week. First time in a long time and it was a busy week, too. Good on me, I suppose. By the time you read this, I’ll likely be on a plane somewhere over the vast Pacific. I’m still waiting for the day when the trip to Asia take as long as the trip to Florida and the trip to Florida takes as long as the trip to Oregon (the trip to Oregon, I suppose then, would be near instantaneous). Point being – flying to Shanghai takes too long. Especially when the direct flight is all booked and you have to take the crappy layover version through Tokyo. But anyway, let’s move on.
OK well, maybe not move on too terribly much… since I’m going to talk about flying still. For the morrow, I’ve think I’ve got stuff ready. I’ll be bringing the current book I’m reading (book freakin’ ten of this massive fantasy epic I’ve been trying to get through off and on for ten years now), as well as the next one in the series. Book twelve just came out and I think I have to wait another couple years before the two final volumes are published. This means that I’ll have been working to get through the story for near fifteen years. That’s a long time to read a “book,” even it’s over 10,000 total pages. Additionally, I’ve got my laptop, my iPod, and my iPhone. With these things, I feel well-equipped for the long flight. Since I got the business class upgrade, I’ll at least be able to lay flat to sleep and plug in to a real AC outlet to keep my tech running. So, I think it’s sorted.
We went out for dinner tonight, used a coupon. Just a little family thing before I split town. Got there early, got back early, and was all packed before 8pm. Not bad, actually… and was able to spend the rest of the night (after coming here to write this last paragraph) hanging out on the couch with Sharaun watching TV. Yup, just wasting away in front of the tube. And now it’s time to hit the sack.
Goodnight and I’ll talk to you next week from the People’s Republic of China.
