home again home again.

I'm back, though my body apparently needs a little more convincing. I woke up at 4:30 this morning after about 5 hours of sleep. I can't tell if I'm jetlagged or I'm just used to running on so little sleep - guess time will tell.

The flight back was uneventful if not, um, un-annoying. I was seated near a woman who had apparently hurt her hand in some kind of wine tasting catastrophy and was retelling the story to anyone with ears. I think I heard it about 15 times. I'd feel bad about being calous, but one of the women traveling with her just kept rolling her eyes every time she started up so I imagine this wasn't the first time she'd told the story. Earphones drowned out most of the rest of the flight(s) though.

Pictures should be developed shortly and I'll post them, this should make for a good end to this travel segment. Quickly though, a few things I forgot to write about that I don't want to forget.

  • The catacombs were interesting, though really there are only so many ways you can arrange skulls and femurs in interesting patterns before it all just starts to look like a brownish morbid blur. Icy droplets of water falling down the back of your neck do not help the ambiance.
  • My french accent apparently improved in the 6 days I was there, one of the clerks at the hostel actually congratulated me on it. So now I guess I can speak all of the 20 or so words and phrases I know that much better :)
  • pineapple crepes could potentially be good if you used bits of pineapple instead of two large rings. and if the pineapple was ripe. Yeah, I didn't get the good kind. Still I was glad for the late night diversion.
  • If you have AT&T Wireless for your cel phone company, when you call them to set up service for international roaming, say "please add the service", not just "yes, I need that" - otherwise they'll do nothing and leave you wondering why your phone doesn't work.
  • I love the feeling of not missing TV. Sure, I don't get to hear the latest on why MTV can apparently never do another superbowl halftime show, but it's a price I'm willing to pay.
I think that was about it. I don't know, I'm too hungry to think straight and I have to crepes to satiate my hunger. Off to buy food.


Welcome back, Zack. We on for Friday night? --Tony
