Batten Down the Hatches

March 11, 2011

It’s been a crazy week around these parts, which accounts for the lack of any posts of substance.  The first few days back State-side, of course, I was suffering from jet-lag as I re-adjusted to life in the Eastern Time Zone.  It wasn’t that hard, but I got very tired very early in the evening.

Add to that coming back from a week away from work meaning that I was swamped with plenty to do, there, too.

And I expect it to be a busy weekend, as well.  But I’ve got some of those pictures, as promised, waiting in the wings.  I just need a little wiggle-room in the timescape to get them uploaded.

    When fighting jetlag after flying west, I recommend taking sunset walks (slightly earlier than sunset) to soak in the sunlight and convince yourself you should still be awake.

      On the flight back we pretty much followed the sun, so I just stayed awake on the plane and had an extended, extra-long day. By the time I rolled in at home, later in the evening, it was time for bed in my normal time-zone, so I figured that should have put-paid to jet-lag worries… but I was still a little extra-off the next couple days. Still, I think staying up and then going to bed in my normal time-zone bedtime helped.

    Ah jetlag, yummy! 🙂

    Someday, you could teach B.T. to type, and simply dictate your posts, and leave all the dirty work to him… 😀

      (And by dirty work I mean simply the time consuming stuff, of course…)

      hah! B.T. already tries to type for me, but it always comes out looking something like this: “jiurfijfiklo uooawolit wI9 / +TW T QAU;I3E +25 ”

    Welcome back…I’m sure the trip was brimming with story ideas!

      It was a pretty fantastic experience, culture-wise. I definitely felt like I’d experienced some important cultural aspects that will be valuable fodder in my writing.
