Away

So, I'm leaving this evening to go to my parents' for the weekend, culminating in the first half of J's wedding on Sunday in Oxford. Then J and I are going to New York for a week's extended hen party. And at the end of that, J's going to finish getting married. darcydodo is hopefully going to join us at some point, and we might well see something of sampiano. The idea is that we're going to stay in a flat belonging to BG from shul, but the arrangements for this seem to be a bit haphazard.

I'm very excited about this trip, seeing my family, seeing lots of my Oxford friends, and introducing Michael to the ones he hasn't yet met, including my brother Screwy. And J getting married is obviously the most exciting thing in the world ever! Then a week in New York, where I've never been, should be absolutely the trip of a lifetime. I'm also considerably nervous, because the logistics for all this are just not as organized as I'd like them to be.

Anyway, I know I'm in the middle of interesting discussions with several people, including rysmiel, midnightmelody and pw201. I am not really intending to spend a lot of time or money in internet cafés during this trip, but this will depend on just how much my burgeoning LJ addiction gets the better of me. So don't be offended if you don't hear from me for a while. Back 9th September or thereabouts.

Meanwhile, I just got an email from my other brother, the Thuggish Poet, from Laos (!) There's an example of someone who doesn't get stressed about not having his trips arranged in advance. He's just wandering round the Far East more or less as the whim takes him, and will come back when he either gets bored or runs out of money.
