Traveling, but not off the couch

As long as I am sitting on my butt on the couch instead of getting up and walking around, I suppose I should tackle one or two of the blog posts I've been planning since last week, but which exist so far only in note-form. Who wants to hear my thoughts about the Oscars? Huh? Who? Note to self: blog this stuff a lot earlier.

Each topic deserves its own post, so in this pointless explanatory post, I will just throw in these two little tidbits of travel information that I keep meaning to mention but which aren't involved enough for their own posts:

  • I have no Big International Visits planned anytime soon. After much deliberation I ixnayed the offer to go to Seoul as an exchange student for the month of August, which would have been considered half work-time and half two-weeks-of-my-own-vacation-time. There's nothing else on the horizon, but maybe something will come up! Since I've been to Israel and Ireland on previous visits, I'm thinking Iceland or Italy or India or Indonesia is in order.
  • My route to SeattleI am going to Seattle in about a week and a half (hi!). In shopping for a ticket that is both cheap and leaves/arrives at convenient times, I managed to book a flight from Dayton to ATLANTA to Seattle. One corner of the country to the other! Frequent flyer miles, here I come!
  • Last week, I got my reservations for my professional organization's annual conference in scenic Minneapolis. It's no Montreal, but it'll do! Conferencing, here I also come!

Now one of these days, I'm going to write something up about who I think should win Oscars... then I am going to build a time machine and go back and blog it before they happen.

When are you going to be in Minneapolis?

May 29-June 1 or maybe June 2 (since I haven't booked my plane ticket yet). I thought that might catch your attention, but I didn't want to be presumptuous!

No, not Atlanta! It's the worst airport in America!

At least I probably won't have to worry about blizzards.

Heh. When I went to Atlanta, it snowed.

Are we just chasing each other around the country? We were in Seattle a few days/weeks apart from each other, too.

Well, when you're getting ready to get here, let me know and we'll see if we can wrangle some time to meet up!
