Well, the weekend is almost here. Yeah!
I need a vacation folks. Jason has not been on vacation in a long time. We're talking years. I did go on a lovely trip to the coast for the 4th of July last summer with the Wilsons, Andy, Rami, and Ellie, but it was more of a long weekend than a real vacation. It's just really hard to get away when you have cases set and you work in a perpetually frantic law office.
Also, I just have a difficult time making travel plans. I'm a creature of habit and kind of a homebody, so it's difficult for me to get organized for trips. I love being in other places, but I hate having to travel to get there. I hate airports, and I hate the little seats in economy class which don't allow for 6'6" travellers. Then there's the issue of wrangling someone into going with me, b/c travelling to other places by yourself is just not as cool as going with other people.
My friend Ray used to say that it's a good thing if you don't long to travel b/c that means that you're comfortable with your normal life. There's a great deal of truth to that, but then again, I don't feel like living my whole life without leaving Texas.
Well, I'm open to suggestions for travel plans. I gotta get out of Austin sometime this year for an occasion other than Christmas or just to visit family. Maybe I should go visit the homeland, up in Michigan. I've had worse ideas.
Travis is hosting a team meeting in the conference room right now, I've just realized. No one asked me to attend. Maybe that's a good thing. Sounds like they're arguing about mail and calendaring and court dates. Yuck.
