As I sit at my desk (and sip my soda, which I’m sure somebody spit in) on this snowy February day my thoughts are 12,000 miles away. Not that there’s anything particularly unique about a day where my thoughts drift to the antipodes, but today’s happens to have a round number. In 80 days, Inky and I will be sitting in LA getting ready to board a plane that will take us south, way south, to Australia.
So this morning, after getting 3 hours of sleep, scraping the ice crystals off my car, and trying to get prepared for a huge meeting tomorrow, it’s all about the Oz. I drove to work listening to the Cat Empire, and right now I’ve got the Missy Higgins playlist going on my iPod all the while I’m dreaming about the view above! I’m just pretending the glare of the snow covered campus is the shimmer of Sydney Harbour, now if I can just get the folks around here to roll with the accent.
