I Just Flew In From California ...

Northwest Wing in Flight
... and boy are my arms tired! Groan ... Sorry, couldn't help myself on that one, I've always wanted to do bad stand-up comedy and trust me - it would be really, really bad stand-up comedy!

Truth be told, it's the day after I flew in from California and then proceeded to drive another 230 miles from New Jersey back to Connecticut so ... yeah ... I'm a little tired but not too bad all things considered. I got to bed around 2:30 a.m. Right Coast time after getting up at 5:15 a.m. Left Coast time so that's kind of weird but it's all good and now I'm back home safe, sound, and shocked that it all seemed to happen so fast.

I have to be at work in about an hour so this post is just to let everyone know that I arrived home uneventfully and I will return to making all of my blog rounds and posting a few more California pictures hopefully tomorrow after work.

Oh, and lest you all think that Amanda missed me or was bored to tears while I was gone, there's also going to be a post about her adventures at Bamboozle where she got to meet up and hobnob with the members of her favorite band - Mindless Self Indulgence. Just as a preview of that post, here's a picture of her talking to LynZ, bassist of the band, that was taken by a guy that Amanda knows who goes by the name of Fith on the Mindless Self Indulgence Underground board.

It took Amanda from the time we left Darcy's house down near Philadelphia all the way to New York City to fill me in on how great the concert was and everything she talked to LynZ about so there's plenty of stuff for a post there as soon as I can fully recover from my jet lag and get caught up!

In the meantime, thank you to everyone for putting up with my non-blog-visiting during the past week while I was out indulging in a Mexican food, friendship, and sunshine!

Now to get back to work ... sigh ...

    California's such a fantastic place to visit, especially San Francisco.

  3. Glad you are home safe. I hope you got the link to all the pictures Zane took. Yep, looks like Amanda had a grand time. Try to get caught up on rest. It sure was great to meet you finally. Have a great day. :)

  4. Welcome back. It's so nice to get away, isn't it?

  5. If it was as much fun for you as it was for us reading about your vacation, then I'm sure you really did have a great time but now, I'm also REALLY glad that you are back home, safe and sound too!

  6. I'm think you did a great job posting while you were gone. I'm not sure I would have done so well while on vacation.
    Glad you made it home safe and sound.
    Get some rest. This weekend maybe?
