It's here! It's here! The day is here!
Well, no, it isn't, but it will be in a few hours, and I won't have time to update in the morning. I'm waking up at a fairly normal half six to leave by half seven to get to the airport by half eleven to check in for the flight at half two to land at a six o clock that's eight hours in the past and really just two am in disguise to get through US customs & security which is always nerve-wracking to get picked up by the ASI driver (called Mitch, who's already emailed me and said we can stop off at a supermarket on the way, yay!) to get driven to the hotel to maybe arrive by eight which is really four am which is twenty hours straight of travelling. Fun!
After that, though, everyone else is arriving in dribs and drabs on the Monday, including Rachael who's picking me up in the morning with her husband so we can go to the Tar Pits and complain about the lack of dinosaur bones, and then the surrealist experience of my life all kicks off from Tuesday. It really is once in a lifetime--they won't let me enter again now--so I am damn well gonna make the most of this
Follow along on my Twitter & Facebook (links in sig) because I am going to be updating constantly. Live vicariously through my social media stream of consciousness! You know you want to.
If I don't see you during, I'll see you after
