Long Weekend

Just returned from the World Humanist Congress in Washington, D.C.

With the sole exception of printing my boarding pass last night, I just spent four days without using a computer or reading the news.

Back to my normal life :)

    Cursed hotel for charging $10/day for use of said laptop.

    Took sabbatical.

    $10/day–for what? That’s un-American.

    I, too, was in the D.C. area for the past week or so without a laptop. In a week, I checked my email a total of 3 times. It was great. :-) Now I’m catching up…
