Travel Day

So today was the day. Moving day. I am fortunate that I have so many amazing friends. Matt, Cullen, and Kim all came to the airport to see me off and as much as I hate modern airport security, I am lucky that it prevents them from hanging with me at the airport too long. It took a lot of restraint to avoid crying (too much) and I hadn't much I could say. After all they have done for me, a "thank you", just doesn't seem to cover it.

The flight, despite the weather on the ground, went smoothly. The head winds delayed the flight enough that my first night in Vegas had to be in a hotel. Apparently, my new apartment complex doesn't allow move-ins after 4pm, but in any event, I wouldn't have been able to make it to the office until 6pm which is when it closed. I managed to find a room within walking distance for $59 for the night and that includes free internet. Obviously, since I am making this post.

I would like to say something clever, but it has been a long day and I am quite tired. Mostly, I am posting just to let people know I made it here okay. Perhaps in the morning I'll have something clever to post. Until then, all I can say is, "Thank you", to all of my friends. Not just to my friends in Albany, but all of my friends everywhere that have gotten me to where I am today. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't currently be the richest man in the world.

Two days in a row without a new insight? There better not be a third. I hope you are planning to take some kind of visual documentation too. Beit video or photo, I would be very interested to see it. So how minimalist did you pack?

Fortunately John, you won't be disappointed with the next blog entry.

Well, so long as you consider my comments on podcasting as a new insight.

I deleted my last post because due to a lack of proofreading it first...too many mistakes. I wasn't disappointed by "Movin' In." You are right, you should have thought of "Weak of Science." It sounds like something you would have said.
