Packing the bags

  • 11th May, 2006 at 3:27 AM

The impromptu dinner party was quite successful. Not only is my refrigerator mostly empty now, I also had happy people walking out the door.

I am going to buy pesos later this afternoon. And quite possibly some appropriate clothing. I understand it's the rainy season down in Mexico. I wish it were warm and rainy here. Then I could put my plants outside and not worry about them dying. Say, does anyone want to water my plants when I'm away?

Some of you may be wondering why I'm going to Mexico. Well, I had booked this trip months in advance, because it was the first time in four years that Debconf has returned to North America. Although last time, I only had to road-trip to Toronto, instead of flying for several hours. I hope to see people that I haven't seen in a long while, and maybe geek out just a little bit more than I normally do. Oh yes, and to take photographs.

In a surprising turn on events, I now work on a Debian-derived distribution. So perhaps some of this trip could be considered business as well? Who knows? I'd certainly like to talk to AJ and the other BTS folks about passing bugs between Debian and Ubuntu. Because we can certainly pool our resources for things like this.

Then I want to buy people drinks and food. And get far too little sleep.

Don't look at me like that. I get plenty of sleep. Oh wait, it's half-past three, isn't it?

It will be my first time there.

I'll be back on 23 May. But I hope to have Internet access all throughout my trip.

I have no idea where this actually is, though. I hope I don't get lost.

Yes. The entire trip becomes tax-deductible since you are now self-employed.

There is a limit of 2 such conferences that you can deduct each fiscal year. However, the food and entertainment portion can only be deducted at 50%.
