Going on vacation tomorrow

Well, it’s official, the day of my vacation’s commencement is tomorrow.

Tomorrow I hop a flight to JFK at noon and, thanks to living on the left coast, I will land there at 8:15 and then catch my Koniklijkeluchtvaartmaatschappij flight to the city on the dam on the Amstel.

I didn’t have that great of an impression of A’dam last time I was there. Was it the aura of my study abroad had worn off? Had the UK exodus as per the Maastrict treaty worn away the Dutch-ness? Can’t say.

Up side is i get to see soopah-sistah, Mr. Cave Cheese himself, and perhaps Big Al (who is now looking to return to the Continent).

That said, instead of blogging about life I’m going to be living a bit of it. Pics to come upon the return. This is the first trip I’ve taken in a while where laptops are not coming along.

Fear not, iPod of Doom is ready, I’ve got a billion magazines to catch up on (as well as the 2nd book in the His Dark Materials Series, The Subtle Knife, Eco’s Travels in Hyperreality, and Fisk’s Pity the Nation).
