Serenade dry dock ended last Thursday. . . Summit dry dock begins April 6th (for me anyway). Actual job starts on the 11th.
Gotta say that I feel a bit behind at work, school and life (scratch the middle one) which is odd since people keep asking me when I'm going to take some time off. Time off? Right now? Doesn't sound too sound to me. Oh wait, I am planning on some time off. Friend of mine through Trek America is visiting from England for a week starting on ol' St. Paddy's Day. Good timing, I'd say. Though I guess the argument for bad timing could be made as well.
So, maybe a trip to Key West, a little beach time coupled with maybe some snorkeling or water sports of some type and the obligatory fine food and wine. MAYBE I won't even open the laptop and I'll turn off the company cell phone and tell people I'm heading North instead of South. Couldn't hurt for a few days.
Thought I'd have this weekend to "catch up" but now I might be heading to San Juan Friday night and flying back Saturday night. Seem silly? Marine department people do things like that all the time. And as usual there's no coherence to my thoughts so I'm going to bed. In the middle of that classic time between jobs when I should take time to upload photos and update my blog and Facebook and thank Dog I don't have a myspace page. Hell, it'll take me a few hours just to re-arrange the files on my 160Gb Archos PVP. . . (just bought LOST season 3 and I'm looking forward to that on some upcoming international flights from hades).
Oh yeah and to keep the marriage vibe for 2008 rolling I just found out two more good friends of mine from high school are getting married. That means I'll be home for at least a week in July, a long weekend in October and some time in summer of 2009. That makes four total for this year and one next year. . . all people I consider to be pretty darn close to me. I have to miss one in April down in Phoenix but I'm sure the others will be a good time. Tengo nada and nowhere to go.
Done and dunn.
