Update: hosed myself and missed my flight to Dulles. So …. back on the Cape (talk about anticlimatic) and repeating the itinerary tomorrow same time, same plane. First time I’ve ever been so stupid. Sat in the lounge, waiting for the flight to get called, hanging onto instant messaging sessions, figured I’d cut it close to 20 minutes to spare. Dumb. Got to the gate. The jet bridge had been pulled back. I pleaded. I was denied. Oh well. So it goes. Some things are meant not to be.
This should be set on “future post” to go live at 10:30 am on Monday (writing this on Sunday) as I board my flight to Dulles and connect to China.
Which is where I will be for the next three weeks. Beijing.
Cell phone, for those of you who know it, is getting turned off between 11 pm and 6 am Beijing time (that’s 11 am to 6 pm EST). Colleagues – I will try to be online as often as possible, but email is the way to go.
