04/17/12 — 1:00PM Eastern — Tuesday — The office, Little Falls, NJ
The little dog Dio has her sleepy spot in the sun back on the floor of my office next to the bin of mail I need to sort, and at this point I’ve run through the 1,500-plus work emails that came in while I was gone. My case of the annual illness I’ve come to fondly refer to as “Tilburg SARS” is in full swing; I’ve been coughing and unable to breathe through my nose since yesterday. Being awake a full 24 hours as I posted stuff from yesterday probably didn’t help either. Worth it.
My luggage reportedly is en route to Newark Airport, from where I guess it’ll be delivered to my humble river valley, which is good since every CD I bought on this trip was in there and I want to use that stuff to make a new podcast this weekend, as well as the vast majority of my wardrobe, by which I mean dirty t-shirts and my “other” pair of pants. Nerve-wracking mostly for the music, but I’m hopeful it’ll work out without any further comedy.
In any case, I’m home and thanks again to everyone who’s commented with kind words about the trip. If you want to check out all the posts in one spot, click here. It’s a lot of stuff, but it was a blast to put together.
End transmission “2012 Adventure.” Now back to real life.
