Tag Archives: Week in Travel

Blerg. This marks day three of being sick, and if the blog’s been a little slow lately, it’s because I’ve been even slower. To add insult to injury, my computer also decided to get sick, and is now at my hubby’s office, undergoing a thorough examination. I hope for a speedy recover for both it and myself.

In the meantime, I’m trying to figure out how, exactly, I’m going to leave for San Francisco tomorrow, and if the sinus pressure in my brain coupled with the pressurized cabin of the plane will somehow cause my brain to explode. I’m undecided, but leaning towards yes.

And since I’ve been doing nothing but watching reruns of What Not to Wear on demand, I can’t really tell you of anything interesting that’s been going on in the world of travel. But I can tell you that empire-waisted tops elongate your legs. So … that’s something.

And here’s some more stuff that might be helpful or interesting to you. I’m too clouded by a NyQuil hangover to assess their value objectively …

It is stunning in Seattle right now. We’re only here for two more days, counting today, and that makes me a bit sad, because really, it is glorious.

We’re off for San Diego next week, and New Orleans after that, with Rand hopping on planes throughout for meetings all over the damn place. He’s important like that. (more…)

I hate to phone it in with a “wrap-up the week” post, but since absolutely everyone else does it, and I’m leaving for Great Britain next week, I figure you’ll forgive me.

Besides, this week was kind of nifty.

First off, Congrats to my hubby’s colleagues at Distilled, for the opening of their new U.S.-based satellite. They’ll also be taking over the consulting portion of SEOmoz, which everyone is crazy excited about, and of which I have a rudimentary understanding. But I’ll drink to anything.

And congrats to the lovely Lucy Langdon (formerly of Distilled) whose article just appeared on Londonist.com this week. I’m going to assume this means I know famous people from across the pond.

Oh, and the Chinese political activist who’d been sleeping in a Tokyo airport finally gets to go home and take a bath, which is nice. One can only hope he receives a warm welcome. (more…)
