A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Virginia

So I just got the call, the trip I've been planning for a month and a half has been cancelled. It was a business trip that I wasn't dreading but wasn't exactly looking forward to, but now it looks like I'm going to be in the office all next week.

This means I'm going to have to return the laptop I'm typing this on a little sooner than anticipated. And I just got all my tools installed. Oh well.

The up side is that I'll now be in town for my birthday, my wife's birthday, the release of the new Transformers movie, the release of The Conduit, and Father's Day. That's good. It also means I don't have to miss another week's worth of band practice. Also good. But it's a little disruptive, I don't mind saying.

It means, for example, that the original draft for today's post is completely null-and-void. It also means I have some supplies that I don't need. Like two combination locks with the same combination, those were a pretty neat find, and now I pretty much have to return them. I have absolutely no need for two combination locks with the same combination. I don't think I could come up with two different things that would even take a padlock.
Also, now that I'm going to be in town, I actually have to put some effort into next week's posts, as I had some generic bit-wise stuff planneBlockquoted to drip out.

Still, I'm looking forward to not having to be back. Okay, better constructed sentences coming soon, I promise.
