Getting Ready to Go  
Doing all the things I tend to put off until the end of the month AND getting ready to leave for England tomorrow.

I hate paying bills, mostly because I'm a cheap bast frugal man who spends more money than he should. It's always a shock to see the credit card bills after the combination of the holiday season (as they are stuffed full of plane tickets for family travel as well as the inevitable gifts) and the winter convention season (which kind of starts with ChambanaCon, doesn't really end until after Dorsai Thing, and includes all the up-front money for GAFilk.)

The other issue is that both ladyat and I have an awful lot of work to do even during vacation next week. For her, things have gone a little nuts now that it's less than 6 months out from Mythic Journeys. For me, it's the normal "vacation? You will be checking email and handling your escalations, right?" That, plus arranging to meet with a customer in Salisbury on Thursday since HP (lot of cheap bast frugal managers they are) won't pay for me to go but will reimburse me for certain expenses if I go while I'm there. The good news is that time spent doesn't count as vacation time, which means I can go to 16 Tones as if it was just a weekend trip while not making us crazy by trying to do a UK trip in just a few days.
