Home Again

18:37 Posted by Ali , , , No comments

I have lots of thoughts and feelings (if nothing that counts as actual news), but it's overwhelming enough being back home without also trying to put all these thoughts and feelings into proper words. The weather is nice and my family is nice and my cat is nice, and I'm going to spend some time enjoying these things and sorting my life out for a while.

In the mean time, here I am with a penguin on my head.

Some Nice Things

It's my 100th post!

So I guess I shouldn't just whine about my reasons for being grumpy, including how the best sleep I got all of Thursday night was between 7 and 10am, after lying awake half the night. So I'm going to skip all that and find nice things. Like the fact that my excellent friend David kept me company via chat from India when I couldn't sleep. Yay Dave!

Also, pressing buttons! And science things! Once I eventually decided that I shouldn't spend another day in bed, if for no other reason that it makes me feel even more at a loose end, I decided to head for the New York Hall of Science. It turns out it's free on Friday afternoons. FATE.

But to Me it is Not Scary, 'Cos I Stay Away From Dairy

My flight was rescheduled for Sunday. I know that "Oh no, I'm stuck in New York!" is a first world problem on a par with the Butter Crisis, but right now I would just like to go home.

Sandy would like you to know that you ain't going nowhere.
Still, things are starting to get up and running again here, so I'm not quite as stranded as I was. The public transport was shut down on Monday night, but the buses have been more or less running since Tuesday evening, and the subway is partially running again today, which is pretty impressive, as most of it is flooded or without power.
