Tomorrow night, I leave for a much-needed vacation in Ireland. Of course, with deadlines looming, this is going to be a working vacation — but the day job will be far behind, and I’ll be doing my writing between museum visits and trips to the chip shop and, if the weather permits, even a short hike.
I’ll definitely post all about it, and I hope to share pictures. I’ve been negligent in even attempting to use my digital camera ever since the deeply psychologically scarring Rome Photo Debacle of 2006. (Apparently I accidentally flipped the the camera function to MOVIE, never caught it, and came home without the dozens of photos of the Forum and the Vatican I thought I’d taken; instead, I had dozens of three-second-long movies of my friend and I discussing whether we thought that picture would come out. Honestly, the little movies have their charm, but no pictures of Rome! I was crushed.) I am determined to get it right this time, though, and if I do, I promise to share the results.
I think I’m all packed. I HOPE I’m all packed. Quickly, tell me — when you go on vacation, what’s the one thing you most often forget to pack? You might be rescuing me!
