In an effort to rack up as many frequent flier miles as possible, I'm headed to the west coast for next week. Should be fun, but the packing is never a good time. As much as I try and think up everything we're going to need, there is always that nagging feeling that I'm forgetting something basic and that we'll spend a week in California twiddling our thumbs. There are worse places to do that, but it's an expensive way to pass the time. The trip we made in December was a warm up for this one, so it's going to be important to really crank and get as much done as possible. When we get back I will be starting up the next phase of the lab's main line of research and it all hinges on what we manage to get next week. No pressure....
Lest I look forward to a cross-country plane ride to sleep or otherwise relax, my programming books came today. I'm not sure whether I'll find the time on the plane to be useful to dig into the text or if it will simply expedite my descent into slumber.
Now, what calamity will ensue pre-departure?
