This is the way the vacation ends
This is the way the vacation ends
This is the way the vacation ends
Not with a bang, but with accidentally knocking half a glass of Sprite all over my GURPS 4e core rules and financial aid paperwork.

Good night.

edg: (Between the candle and the star)
I would first like to note that it's just my kind of luck that [livejournal.com profile] weds is over on the East Coast exactly when I'm out of town.

That said: today was pretty fun, even if I made a miscalculation that made for some late-afternoon strife. We attended the Magic Kingdom today, after switching hotels. We hit Adventureland, Fantasyland, Liberty Square, and Tomorrowland (as well as Main Street USA) - Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, the Carousel of Progress, etc. Very enjoyable. The park is much smaller than I remember it, and even so there was a bunch of stuff I wanted to hit that we didn't get to. But at 6 PM, Alex was getting pretty crabby, so we called it a day and headed home. We may go back later in the weekend - we have two days with nothing to do. (Tomorrow or Sunday we're headed over to EPCOT. I wasn't sure that Alex would be up for it, but he insisted on going back to see the Carousel of Progress a second time, and EPCOT is pretty much the Carousel writ large, so...)

Now I'm coming down from the cheer of the day, which is resulting in some disappointment and distress. I hope I'm channeling it off as well as I think I am.

6:15 AM: I wake up to the captain's announcement that we're 20 minutes away from Charlotte. Alex and I have slept through the entire flight. (Except once, when I woke up just as the drink cart was going past and waved them off.) Irritatingly, I appear to have picked up an inflammation somewhere between my right nose and ear.

When the attendant comes by with the trash bag, before Alex is really awake, I throw away the remains of dinner from last night. I kept it because I was afraid Alex would wake up hungry in the middle of the night - he didn't eat much Wednesday - but after eight hours, half a hot dog and a bottle of milk, unrefrigerated, aren't going to be a particularly good breakfast.

2:40 AM: I'm awake. Gah.

I got offline at 9 or so. I finally got to bed about half an hour later, due to some last-minute hunting for stuff. I didn't get to sleep until 11:30. So a kinda-solid night's sleep turned into a three-hour nap.

I'm glad I checked my e-mail before I left; it turned out I'd misremembered the hotel we were staying in. That might have led to some unpleasantness when we arrived in Orlando.
