Home sweet home

After nine days, I'm back in my own apartment, and I've just realized it's quiet for the first time in over a week. Even in my own hotel room, there was always plenty of ambient noise. Now... just the burble of the fish tank filter mechanism, which seemed to have gotten clogged while I was away. I resurrected it so the water should be getting aerated again.

I'm both zonked and vaguely restless, as though I should go do something with the couple more hours before it's really "late" on Pacific time. But I'll probably just sit on the couch for a bit, chatting, and then eventually climb in bed. (MY bed. Woo!) Might even get to work at a reasonable hour tomorrow morning.

Please send happy thoughts...

A friend who's nervous about flying is on Virgin-Atlantic Airways flight 004 from JFK to London's Heathrow airport, leaving tonight at 7:30 EDT and arriving in London around 7am. Please think happy, safe-flying thoughts for her!
