It's all arranged - mostly

My flights are booked. I'm leaving for Seattle on Saturday. Leaving Seattle late on Thursday night (well after the meeting) to come home via London, with plenty of time to get to the Arsenal game on April 1st. Now I just need to arrange tickets. I figure my podcast should help, plus the people I know.

All very exciting. God is definitely on my side in the way that this has been able to be arranged. And thanks to Microsoft for letting me be part of the beta exam process!

Very sad for the people who have missed out. You know who you are.

And I need to get my phone back before the weekend!!! Judy (from work) is looking into it for me. Come on Optus!
