I'm actually all set to go out of town this week. Almost everything's packed, I have my boarding pass, I've checked the weather there (cold, at least to this adopted son of the South), and I got gas last week before I went to the airport, so the tank is nearly full. I did all my paperwork (especially my bill and my expense report) last night, so that's all taken care of.

A thought that came up in a conversation here earlier: Although I know that I didn't finish the NaNo novel this year, I'm thinking that it might be cool to make 2006 my NaNoWriYear. In other words, write the first draft of a short novel every month for a year. I've had so many false starts that I could take all of the ideas that I've had, started and haven't gone anywhere and just get them written. It might be tough to finish in February, but hey, February sucks, anyway. Maybe break the year into 4 week periods and do 13 of them. Or take off the period before November and do NaNo that month. I haven't worked out the details yet.

I don't wear a wristwatch, since my cellphone has a very accurate clock in it. The problem is that I have to turn it off while in the air, and I never know what time it is. Today, I remembered that my Rio Cali has a clock in it, so I took it along on this trip. Anyway, I seem to have lost the USB cable that connects it to my desktop, on which most of my music is loaded. So, I figured I'd just listen to whatever was on there.

About halfway through the trip, guess what song came on?

Just thinking about it, I might just leave the music that I have loaded on it there, or dump it out to disk. In addition to Earth, Wind and Fire, I also have Emily Remler, Art Pepper, Al Jarreau, "Let It Be...Naked" by the Beatles, all of the "Rock Instrumental Classics" from Rhino, Billy Joe Walker and Chuck Loeb loaded onto it. Great stuff.
