Vacation!

Ready or not, the airport shuttle van comes to pick me up at 5:15 tomorrow morning, and a few hours later I'll be on a plane first to Newark, New Jersey, and then, after a layover and a plane change, en route to Edinburgh. After that it's a two-hour train ride, and I'll finally fetch up on Tavi's doorstep. There is castle-visiting planned, and Nessie-hunting out on the loch. (I told them at work that if I spot her and get a good photo, I'm resigning immediately. Otherwise, I'm back home on July 26th, and back to the office on the 28th.)

Fou, the Domi and Nico dolls are going with me to meet their British cousins. Nico is particularly interested in a comparison with his clone, as he feels you may have shortchanged him just a bit. And I'm not talking about the pins. ;-)

If you'd like a postcard, please email your address to aswanargent@gmail.com. It's possible that my snail mail address list will turn up before I leave, but it's just as likely it won't. And babycakesin, I never did get an Edmonton mailing address for you. :-(

Any tennis fans out there? Anyone watch the Federer-Nadal Wimbledon men's final? Anyone else an emotional wreck when it was over?

Silvio Lappy isn't coming to Scotland with me, but I'll have internet access and will try to start getting caught up on my flist. I make no promises about posts, though, because there'll be other things occupying my time. See what I mean?

When yours sees the size of Tavi's, he won't feel so very bad about himself, I can garantee that much... :)

Have a nice trip!

He'd like to point out to you that something is better than nothing. And I do have to finally ask, what's the significance of the vodka bottle you gave mine? The little "Prada" tag is self-evident, but the vodka? Is it some sort of seduction tool?

Even when the something has only been designed to serve as a pincushion (a very inadequate one at that, being so small it can only accomodate one single very thing pin...)

Sarko's a tea-totaller but after a one-to-one meeting with Putin he gave a press conference where he distinctly gave the impression that he was wasted. Since vodka is Russia's national beverage...

Thanks! I plan to. And there'll be no thinking about work for three weeks. :-)
