all over the place; move along, very little to see here
I'm busy printing things out for the trip, so I figured I'd drop by.
I was reading Peter Panic Attack's trip report for an '07 trip today (as well as the one he did for a trip 2 years before that on his wife, Tinkershell's, account) and I almost just want to shut down all my trip reports. Oh my Buddha he's awesome. Hilarious. Who knew you could combine prep for WDW, moleskin, and Silence of the Lambs, ya know????
But oh well, I get control over my brain by writing it out, and for some reason I do better on the computer for this sort of thing than on paper (plus, I believe I've mentioned my umpteen notebooks), so you'll just have to suffer through it.
Why do I reference these awesome writers in my reports? PPA, Marivaid....so much more amusing. Then again, they take a lot longer to finish a report than I do, so that's a benefit. "yay, it's a cruddy report, but it was quick!"
Realized I didn't get E his Earplanes or kid-sized earplugs. Ruh roh. Tomorrow, along with getting Roberto some interview clothes (amazon interviews are perhaps a bit more relaxed than, oh, say, microsoft interviews...and yes it's totally OK that I'm talking about this in a public forum; amazon knows exactly why he's interviewing elsewhere (along with 18 million interviews inside his current company)), I'll be checking prices on those things. If the cost isn't happy-making, I'll be rush-ordering them from drugstore. Can't believe I forgot them!
So yeah, he's got an interview in Redmond on Monday, wish him luck! Meanwhile I'll be toodling around with E and my brother, while my SIL has some big lawyer conference in Seattle.
Thank goodness I've been doing "flylady" stuff in the house the last 2 months (me and R, not just me), b/c the house is a whole lot cleaner and neater (not as cluttery!) than it would have been without the "flying". Yay us!
And no, interviews and pre-planned vacation don't go together; there's still a chance R will have to stay at home . He has told us we MUST go even if he doesn't. I really don't like it, but he's serious about it. Sniffle sniffle.
I want to be a Foley sound artist, dangit. R and E are watching the special features of Kung Fu Panda, and man oh man I love the whole sound effect thing.
