So I’m currently in San Diego. I’ve been in the air most of the day, attempting to re-read Good Omens without much success.
I’m going to need a great deal of luck and all my skill to get myself through the next few days, which will prove to be some of the most expensive of my life: they’re charging for Internet access at the hotel (as if I were going to live without that). Also, plane tickets weren’t cheap. As it stands, the only deal I’m getting is on the rental car: I got an intermediate vehicle for the price of the economy car I ordered because someone drove off with the last Aveo.
That said, I fully intend to enjoy myself. I’ve got four movie tickets, and if I can swing it, I’ll probably go see Inglorious Bastards, as nobody else in my family wants to see the film (but I generally enjoy such bloodfests).
If you live in Southern California, I wouldn’t mind meeting you, as I’m here until Monday. Comment on any location where this post appears with info.
