i dont do anticipation much. In the case of my upcoming travels, i have not been noticing that they are approaching and had to start saying good byes today, after my the Not Forum transparency group, to some folks i wont see until 2013.
i also had to finally move into my new room.
Shal helped and slightly after midnight we moved basically everything i owned in about 20 minutes of work from the halfway into my room.
In 3 days i go to San Francisco, in just about 3 weeks i go to Europe for 3 months (you will likely note a different flavor of blog).
And in my typical unorganized style, i have not really warned that many people in the Bay Area that i will be around. And something will turn up, it always seems to.
