Sleep is for the weak

TO CITY VILLE
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

I'm always a little jumpy when something changes. Not because I'm nervous or anything, but because I get a little kick of adrenaline. It prepares me well for the horrors ahead. Among these is the need to be a good corporate citizen. Do I still have the knack for business-speak, or will it be too rusty to mask my hippie sensibilities?

So I've been trying to figure out how to get to CodeCon and how to survive there. I'm trying to fly on accumulated loyalty points, which we have just enough to go on. I think I will leave Toronto on the morning of the ninth. But to return, do I leave early Monday morning? Or do I leave late in the evening and give up on sleep?

I think I will sacrifice the sleep. One doesn't visit San Francisco all the time, you know.

I'm also trying to arrange some sort of accomodation down there. Although I understand that it's very warm in California, I'm too spoiled to live like a hobo. Also, hobos typically don't carry around laptops, which would make me a target. It sounds like I might be able to crash with some people in a hotel, but we shall see how that turns out.

A hostel would be fun, as well. So that is my backup plan.

I should head off to bed, as I'm waking up early. I have to drive to work, which is something that I loathe. This is amortised slightly by driving in an awesome burgundy Cadillac.

I will be staying with my parents while I'm in the Bay Area for CodeCon, and you can probably stay with me, for free. Well, free but for the round-trip fare between downtown San Francisco and Fremont (where my folks live) on BART, which is $9 or so. Fremont is far away and lame, plus BART only runs until about midnight, so you might prefer to spend a little more money to stay in San Francisco, which is much more interesting and probably does not involve a large number of cats and dogs cohabiting with you. But I'm just putting the offer out there.

Ask around on the wiki for crash space if you haven't already.

Thanks for the kind offer! I'll let you know if I'll take you up on it.

I have, of course, asked about LodgingArrangements, but I have no idea whether that will work out or not.

I'd love to, but yeah, I'm in my final term now and my finances are streched rather thin, at best. I'm afraid I'll have to live the event vicariously through your blog :)
