You know things aren’t quite right when you start your day off with a 7:30AM meeting and you finally get home at 11PM and all you’ve had to eat for dinner was some cashews and a couple of cookies. Especially if you had to work through dinner, watching people trying to configure a computer that shouldn’t be so hard to fix. Oh, and lunch was a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger at the Wendy’s stand in the airport which you ate standing in line to get on the plane that you barely caught. At least barely catching the return flight wasn’t so bad because I GOT HOME.
When I got home I noticed that my gateway computer had rebooted itself. I’m not quite sure that it’s working quite right, which is another joy in itself. Also, I guess while I was away, my mother was sick in bed with a 102°F fever. Fortunately my sister was around and I don’t know what all went on. All I can tell you is that a trip to San Jose is probably a lot more pleasant if you see more than the airport, the rental car agency, and the conference room of the company you’re going to visit. Even if they bribe you with a half-dozen peanuts and a day-old pot of coffee.
