Hurry Up & Wait

Despite sleeping in, eating breakfast at our leisure, taking two long hot showers, and finally, after all of that, packing our huge bag, my lady and I are sitting around, waiting.

This evening at half past nine, we’re flying to Australia. This is the first time that I can remember flying at any time other than in the morning, and I’ve got to say, I prefer the early flights. With a morning flight, you stress about everything the night before, have a good sleep, get up, grab your bag and go. Mornings are a beginning, and the whole feeling just suits an undertaking like flying to the other side of the world.

But we’re waiting. The waiting will however soon be over, and then we’ll be leaving mobile phones and computers and 9 to 5 and buses & trains and deadlines and clients and bosses and meetings behind us for an entire month. If I were a better writer I could possibly put down how much I’m looking forward to this holiday, but I’m not so I’ll just say “a lot”. A big lot.

What this means for you, my reader, is you can forget about posts that have anything to do with the web, technology, communities, e-commerce or user generated content. But you can look forward to sporadic posts about sun, beaches, Sydney, food, road trips, Ayer’s Rock and Melbourne. Of course we could be having too much fun, so no promises.

And now I’m off to kill another 1.5 hours until our taxi comes.
