The late late late late show

I'm working overnight this week and next week.  Unsurprisingly, it's dead quiet.  Turns out not too many people have legal research questions at 4 o'clock in the morning.  I also got a call tonight from a guy wanting to change his airline reservation, and one from a bunch of drunkish gentlemen from parts unknown who seemed to be delighted to be speaking English with me.

I've been thinking about travel plans.  I have a week off in November, which I may use to go to Montana, but it occurred to me that Montana in November isn't always the pleasantest, so perhaps I should explore other options?  Also talked with my mother about maybe going somewhere for her birthday.

For several years now I've wanted to go spend a week or two at a language school in South America.  Possibly Chile, because I am a huge fan of Pablo Neruda and would like to retrace some of his footsteps.  Or maybe Peru, because Machu Picchu.

There are a whole bunch of Northern Hemisphere places I'd like to visit, but ideally not in November.  Other southern hemisphere options?  Australia!  Man, I'd love to go back to Australia.  New South Wales is on my list of Favorite Places.  Also some of its residents are on my list of Favorite People.


  1. You could always accompany L down here in November ;)
    We've just moved into a 2bdrm townhouse so there's plenty of room.

  2. Man, that'd be so fun! You guys are going to have an awesome time with the L-ster.

    It looks like Mom and I are going to take a trip to Asheville, North Carolina and the Biltmore mansion, as wild birthday celebratory kind of thing. And then she has to be back to work shortly after the election, so I'll have a few additional days to fritter away too.
