What Happens When I Actively Try to Travel Light

I generally travel light.  This blog has the running joke about Things I Forgot when I travel.  This time, I out did myself.  It started because I didn’t feel like lugging around the laptop.  And since I was only going to two nights, I… Continue Reading “What Happens When I Actively Try to Travel Light”

Something Slightly Different

Winter vacation in Hawaii, but this time in Kauai rather than the Big Island.  I brought 1.5 books, two DVD sets and four back issues of Vanity Fair.  After one travel day and one complete day, I have finished a book and two magazines.… Continue Reading “Something Slightly Different”

Short Week in Washington

Just got back to town.  Let’s start with “things I forgot”: Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, face cleanser.  Because I left them in the shower in Honolulu.  This led me to spend $20 at the new Lush store in Pentagon City, and I was still… Continue Reading “Short Week in Washington”

Week on the Road

I flew to Fargo Monday morning.  Because Joy was there and it was not 20-below, we took a walk downtown for dinner.  We were told the best restaurant in downtown Fargo is Juano’s.  We saw a sign that said “Monday – $1.99 Margaritas”  so… Continue Reading “Week on the Road”

Happily, things… Continue Reading “Coordinating a Conference This Week”

DC Redux. Again.

I forgot contact lens solution.  But I found an old Holiday Inn room key that I was able to return when I checked in. Yesterday, the cupcake truck came to our office.  Apparently, they have two trucks now.  But I hear that they are posting… Continue Reading “DC Redux. Again.”

It is Only a Two Day Trip

Things I Forgot to Bring to Fargo

My Passport.  No, I am not running for the border.  How far is the border, anyway?  But I normally use it for airport security because it is easier to grab than my driver’s license.   A hairbrush.  No kidding. Pajamas.  I remembered my Urlacher… Continue Reading “Things I Forgot to Bring to Fargo”
