It’s going to be busy around here until Monday, so: light posting. Beautiful weather here, too. So go enjoy some of it, if you have some.
PS: My wife and I hit the National Cryptological Museum this morning, because it was, like, two minutes to one of our favorite food/bar combinations and we’ve been talking about going to it for decades. Turns out that… it was worth going to. The NSA’s got some cool stuff there, and a lot of it isn’t behind glass. Some of it, you can even fiddle with.
My only complaint was that the gift shop didn’t have mugs with “No Such Agency” on them. I would have bought a few, for gifts.
We’re not doing any traveling, because the kids have just finished their first week back and they have zero interest in going anywhere. Since I have zero interest in making everybody’s lives miserable by making us go on a trip, I’m fine with this. But we’re going to go into vacation mode here, too. Everybody: enjoy the nice weather and relax. I’ll be around here when I am.
If the post just now wasn’t obvious enough, here ya go: I’m taking most of today and tomorrow off. Christmas stuff, and I don’t feel bad about it all. Everybody: have a good weekend.
…the kind where I don’t bring the Chromebook. It will be good for me, I think. Besides, I will have my phone for reading books. But mostly there’s going to be a bit of digital decompression going on.
Anyway, I’ll be around in the morning, at least.
Kids are off in the hands of their aunts, Mom was taken out for a really, really good seafood dinner, my wife and I went out for very good beers from a new brewpub in my hometown, and I’m going to bed early. All in all, relaxing. See you tomorrow.
Go have a hot dog, or a burger, or maybe some potato salad. We’re having lasanga for the big dinner, just as soon as people come back from the traditional trip to the surplus store. Heck, I’m contemplating having another can of beer. Why cans? Heck, why not?
See you folks tomorrow. Unless I think of something interesting to say today, of course.
…unless the youngest wakes up throwing up or unable to talk, or something. See you all tomorrow, in that case. The Chromebook grows ever wheezier as a remote blogging agent.
And… well, the kids didn’t vomit. Or have explosive diarrhea. And everything was cool with my in-laws. And… give me a minute here, people.
See you on the flip side.
Remind me why people like to travel for fun, again?
