This week coming up is looking pretty hectic. I leave around lunchtime today from Delaware to head up to New York City for work until sometime on Saturday, and then on Sunday I leave in the evening for Charlotte, North Carolina for a tech conference until Tuesday night.

I've never been a "road warrior" in any job, and I'm not sure I'd be particularly good at it. I like having roots and I like going to my real home at night. When I first got hired at this job, I had to basically spend three weeks in a hotel in NYC for the new employee orientation.. while this sounded fun in theory, it got old pretty fast.

I think the thing I missed most was my kitchen. You know you're at a place you can legitimately call "home" when you can cook yourself something you want.

At any rate, I'm borrowing a coworker's laptop for the Charlotte trip, so I won't be completely out of touch over the next few days. I think he's got World of Warcraft loaded on there too...

yeah, but I was kind enough to lock your account out of it :)

Just kiddin'

Over the years - this job and others - I've spent far more time on the road than I ever wanted to. I can't tell you how many times in the past something simple like checking email or playing a game or hell, even sitting down at night and banging out some code helped keep me from going completely nuts while travelling.
