The good news is that I am going home. For about sixteen hours! I hardly know what to do with myself.
See you all this afternoon.
Just ask this scientician…
Just close you eyes, and go to sleep. We’ll quietly back out of the internet and turn off the tight, until you com back.
Hurry home – Metafilter is all but crying for your return. You’ll see what I mean when you get there.
Is it really worth heading home for only sixteen hours? (Serious question btw)
ajinbc: Speaking as a frequent business traveler, it’s always worthwhile to get all home time available.
16 hours at home with wife and progeny trumps 160 hours of answering: “May I tweet about your ultra-secret reading contents?”
Sixteen hours at home in those circumstances will seem like a week — and like a minute.
The security lines at MSP … don’t get me started. The terminal was rebuilt with a goal of having as few traffic impediments as possible. Then 9-11 happened and checkpoints became mandatory. I suspect that a good half of the corridors in MSP have been closed, some sheet-rocked over so you don’t even know they were there, but the traffic flow now is a nightmare..
I know you said that Tor has been very generous and I have no idea of the logistical nightmare that rounding up a book tour might entail but it seems to me they have you running back and forth. Couldn’t they have run you up & down one coast then home then around the Mid-West & home then the other coast?
lol. finally you are coming bac
