No need to alert the authorities…

I’m back in one piece.

Moving to a hotel owned by the Mouse.

Alert the authorities if I do not emerge from the Magic Kingdom by Sunday.


Hooray for sleeping in!

Is it really sleeping in if you simply maintained your regular sleep schedule but that the hours themselves are in a different because you’re in a different time zone?

I’m not sure exactly what time I went to bed last night, but I think it was probably 3am PST (that’s what I remember my laptop saying anyway).

I got up at 11am today. That would be 11am EST.

Making it 8am PST.

Hooray for 5 whole hours!

(I’m not complaining… that’s more sleep than I got the two nights before leaving for Orlando, when I had a combined two whole hours.)

Why does real life keep intruding on my vacation?

Actually, it only happened a couple of times today and it really wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t even the Bossguy calling, either, so that was good.

We spent the entire day yesterday traveling to Orlando, Florida. I’ve never been in Florida before this. The trip itself was an adventure. We settled in last night and got up early to be tourists.

Spent most of the day at the Kennedy Space Center, had dinner in Cocoa Beach and almost got lost trying to get back to Orlando.

Nonetheless, we’re back at our resort and I’m sitting in the lobby, taking advantage of the free wi-fi.

Haven’t had a chance to download any pix off my camera yet, but if you check out Joz’s flickr photostream, you might get a peek or two of my vacation from my cameraphone.

More later… I promised Yoshi a turn at the keyboard…

Really annoyed…

I had to update my voter registration, which I did in the appropriate time frame.

I sent in for an absentee ballot for myself, my mom and my brother (at the same time).

Received sample ballots for all.

But we realized today that my Bro is the only one with an absentee ballot. Therefore, he’s going to be the only one of us who can vote (since Mom and I are both going to be out of town on Election Day). Ironically, he is the only one of us who didn’t actually NEED the absentee ballot.

It does not feel like vacation yet.

Why the heck did I have to stay up all night and STILL not be done with everything I’m supposed to work on tonight?

And that’s right, I said vacation. Details possibly forthcoming. Possibly not.

A number of things I meant to blog about, but never got around to:

  • Went to a screening a few weeks ago of Paramount’s “Flushed Away.” Enjoyed it. Loved the slugs.
  • Watched a crapload of TV. Cleared the TiVo in anticipation of being out of town for a week.
  • Went to a special screening earlier this week for Paramount’s “The Freedom Writers” coming out Martin Luther King, Jr Weekend 2007. Had just devoured the book last weekend while out of town to San Jose. Loved the book. Enjoyed the movie as well, though as you might suspect, the book is stronger. The screening was a special ‘friends and family’ screening in Newport Beach by Erin Gruwell (the teacher who inspired the movie) and we got to meet actual Freedom Writers. Very inspiring. Picture(s) possibly forthcoming.
  • 11/2: Dad’s been gone 4 months
  • 11/3: Grandma’s been gone 7 years
  • More birthday blues
  • Ok, that’s it. Need sleep now. Getting up in two hours.

    Frazzled Friday

    The morning started with another wake-up call from Mom. (She had called last weekend, but I didn’t hear the phone ring when she called.) We talked for about 20 minutes.

    I was going to try to get out of the office a little early today but I ended up working my full 8 hours.

    Oh well.

    Now to come up with some research for a report I’m doing for my Finance class… due to my classmates at a meeting at 9am tomorrow.

    Is it bad that I wake up earlier on weekends than I do most weekdays?

    It’s not a secret anymore…

    …but guess what finally arrived for me yesterday?

    TMX Elmo - Top Secret

    That’s right… my TMX Elmo! I got it at the pre-order price of $39.99, too!

    (Still not sure what I’m going to do with it, though…)

    November already?

    Time is just racing by and I can’t help but to feel bittersweet about it being November already.

    The days are shorter. The nights are longer.

    We’re heading into the holiday season and the end of the year.

    And, oh yeah. I’m having a birthday later this month. I was supposed to be excited about it, but instead I’m so sad about my Dad not being around for this one.

    We were supposed to spend it together as a family. Aside from my birthday, there were other things we would have been celebrating together this month.

    Is it wasting a wish by wishing for something that can never happen?
