Getting late

In advance of what will prove to be a LONG day. Up at 5am to catch my plane to LA so I can get in and get the maps I need to pack and have time enough to figure out what I'm doing even as I scramble to understand how I thought I could do this so fast. By the time I get to bed, I'll probably have been up for more than 20 hours...and neither body nor spirit likes me doing that. Can't say as I blame 'em; I don't like me doing that, either.

BUT...I bought a neck rest for the plane, so I may get some napping done since it's a long trip from Baltimore to LAX. Usually I can't sleep on a flight; I can doze but only fitfully. So I'm trying out this neck pillow to see how it does. If I snore too loudly, I hope the flight attendant will wake me.

I'm in LA for two nights, one day and part of two days so not much time to do anything or see anyone. Guess I'll have to wait till next trip.

I've been running errands all evening, having got off from the job nearly an hour late. Too much to do and no time to do it. I still have to iron something to wear tomorrow. But I'm packed and set with everything I need, I think. And I even got some work done on POS -- just notes for later, but I'm plotting out how to do the rewrite of what I've already written in section 3. This last bit helped me see the perfect direction to take. Won't be easy to get it done...but if it works, it'll kick some serious butt.

Or not. Who knows?

BTW -- ever had a building greet you? This is The Museum of Arts and Design at 2 Columbus Cirlce in NYC, across from Central Park.
This isn't a great picture, but the sun was too bright on the side wall for anything better so you have to look carefully.

You'll be coming into L.A. on the hottest day so far and leaving when it cools to a tolerable level. I'm watering chickens and the yard.

At least it won't be humid here. Have fun, hope you take photos.
