In transit

So I'm all packed except for the things I've forgotten and will remember somewhere between here and Ottawa. Not that there was much to pack as I'm traveling fairly light. Like any trip down south, you don't take much with you because you'll be buying a ton of stuff once you get down there. Much of my wardrobe could using some touching up, so I'll be buying some new clothes when I get home.

I don't know why I bother, really. It's a highly relaxed dress code at work, but I still like wearing something half-decent. I still feel weird wearing jeans to work, although most do.

Traditionally, this type of blog post would tell you to come back in two weeks as I'm away on vacation. However, it's likely I will be posting over then next two weeks. I'm staying at Cathy's folks' house, which now has a new(ish) computer and high speed internet. I won't be posting every day, but I imagine I'll have something to say every couple of days or so. It's my vacation. I would prefer to spend as little of it as possible in front of a computer.

For those who would like to see me when I get home, drop me a line on email or on Facebook, if you're part of that cult. Or you can always call – 364-8066. I'm home until Aug. 19.

And not to get melodramatic here, but I think this will be my last trip home for awhile. Christmas will be spent on a cruise. Next summer is Italy for a month and I doubt I will have much vacation time or money left after that for a jaunt back to St. John's. And 2009 is promising to be a weird year, where we'll either go to Australia, move back south or possible both. Getting to St. John's is once again going to be difficult.

This is a long-winded way of saying if you want to see me, either track me down in St. John's or be prepared to do some flying.

And with that, I'm away....

Happy vacation! Do post when you can -- I will be in withdrawal otherwise.

Since I was too embarrassed to say it in person: I read your blog.

Here's hoping your stay in Newfoundland goes better than our flight from Iqaluit did!

It's too bad you didn't come up and say something. I don't think I've ever had anyone come up and say they read my blog in Iqaluit. I assure you I would have only been mildly freaked out....;)

I almost said "Hey, you are Townie Bastard!" when I saw you at the gym or once at your office. But I too felt embarrassed for some reason... but not embarrassed that I read your blog. Embarrassed because it felt like I was a stalker or something (for the record, I am not).
