The mouse I use was purchased in Massachusetts in the year 2000 and just stopped working. (Mousepad courtesy photogoot.) I think, while I'm there, I'll buy another. drax0r used to pocket the ball to force me to go out and smoke with him - a tactic I both hated, and admired for its effectiveness.
Its been nearly ten years since I've been to Massachusetts and I leave again at 0400. I haven't even packed yet, just made piles of stuff I know I'll need on the bed. My co-worker usually goes, and packs only a single carry-on bag. And while I think that's all kind of smart, this time I think I'll pack a suitcase and see how it goes.
I've gone 14-days without MONSTER or Scooby-Snack (moist smokeless tobacco) but I wonder if the long hours and boring evenings will drive me once again into her arms. I hope to see somebritinmass while I'm there, but this trip caused me to miss meeting uniqueblog while he was here in DFW.

So I bid you all adieu. Hopefully I'll find some hot-spots along the way (I have a two-hour layover in D.C. on the way there) but if not, I should be set up prior to my Monday-morning start time. I'm leaving a day early because Monday is going to start with a shot and I'll be the one out the starting gate with some small man sitting on my neck and beating my ass with a whip.
