flew into lax on sunday night and had dinner and a beer with tri and chetty. i’m glad to be heading down there and hang out a little more, especially on the company’s dime. i think at first i’ll be down there a couple times a month, but we’ll see what happens. if i can squeeze them into a single day trip, then it’s manageable. i might have an overnighter every once in a while. there might be a trip to paris for me (and a trip to south carolina for les), so that will be interesting to handle that since neither of has traveled for work in probably a couple years. we’ll probably lean on the local family network for support during those trips.
it also was my first flight since we have the new traveling rules in place about liquids and gels. i had to toss my hair gel and a bottle of face lotion since they were over 3 oz in size. total replacement cost was probably about $30 or so. what a waste. other than that, it was rather uneventful.
kind of a boring trip, eh?
