Day 67: Fly-Away-Day

Damn! Because I am going away tonight, I am going to miss twenty-eight more days over thirty degrees (eighty-six for the fahrenheiters). And, damn again, I'll miss the incessant hum of four days of Grand Prix practice and racing. Along with the flyovers and the parking hassles—lucky I don't have a car, and lucky I won't be here. More disappointingly though is Elementary. Can you all make notes please, and let me know what is happening, what Holmesian myths they utterly destroy, and the numerous ways they diminish Watson's character because she is a woman. I might miss work. But the time that it takes to do that missing will be so small a fraction of time that I will probably miss it. I will miss the lack of greeting and the general disregard from the strangest dog in the world. No, I will actually miss that. I am not being sarcastic anymore. I'll miss home and friends but I know I will come back to them. And lastly I will be missing the usual format of this blog. I am not sure what form it will take for the next couple of weeks. Perhaps it will morph into a travel blog (yay, more pics of not-me). Bear with me, don't abandon me please. Everything will be back to normal soon. Who want's a postcard? (
