A little practice vacation

To quote Terminator 2, "I need a vacation."

And I'm currently dotting the "I"s and crossing the "T"s to let that happen -- ensuring someone can cover my big main work duty, requesting Paid Time Off, looking for a hotel room -- and what will happen will be two extra days off.

I'm hardcore, y0. ;-)

On Thursday, May 3rd I'll drive to Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast, and spend two nights near the beach. I need to see ocean. I haven't been to the coast since the end of 2005. And I haven't gotten a hotel room for myself since 1998 (the one time I've visited Boston so far). I need to remind myself that I can take trips and pay for places to stay.

Oh, and...Kyllo's, here I come! (Me likes that place.)
