Christmas ClusterF.

It’s a good thing that I don’t give a rat’s ass about all this travel grief – roll with the flow. Here is the score card for today:

  • Wake-up call came on time: +1
  • Hot breakfast provided by hotel: +1
  • Shuttle available to go to train station rather than airport: +1
  • Evening dinner guest cancelling – turns out he’s in Phoenix with family: -1
  • Wi-Fi on train working: +1

  • Train on time: +1
  • Room ready at 12:30: -1
  • Lunch at Bumble Bee’s Baja Grill: +1
  • Room ready at 1:30: +1
  • Great condo: +1

  • Afternoon nap: +1
  • Cheap liquor store (CVS) within walking distance: +1
  • Billable hours: +1
  • Bolgogi and Kim Chi for dinner, take-out from across the street: +1
  • Tomorrow’s dinner guest not cancelling even though he’d like to move it out a day: +1
  • Juvenile movie none of my friends would watch with me: +1
  • More billable hours: +1

WOW – a 15-point day. Not bad.

And I get to sleep in… maybe tomorrow night as well!

But as I settle in this evening… I am reminded of last Christmas in this same condo complex, then the Colonels were at a condo complex close by, and snow was in the air…. that means it’s been a year since I’ve seen them and I need to do something about that. Maybe Galena in early March, but I’d have to get a two-bedroom rather than the one-bedroom I have reserved.

    Galena in early March? Does that mean Chicago’s out?
