Dispatches, thoughts, and miscellanea from writer Jon Konrath

no sleep before Hawaii

I can’t sleep. I guess I only have an hour or two until the alarms go off, but I think I will be fairly screwed today. In about five hours, I’ll be on a plane to Dallas, then to San Francisco, then eventually to Honolulu. That’s about 14 hours of airplanes and airports, and yet I still don’t manage to score an actual meal on any of my flights. My biggest worry is that my transfer at SFO is a scant thirty minutes. The two gates are right next to each other, but if the Dallas plane is at all late, I will miss the last flight to Hawaii. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

I think I’m packed, except for the various electronics that are charging, and their respective chargers. I’ll only be gone four days, so I just have a bag of clothes, the laptop bag, and a small camera bag for the camcorder. I really feel like I’m forgetting something, but I think I’m ready to roll.

Okay, I really should try to at least lay in bed and rest for another two hours. It is currently 50 degrees and drizzling – it will be nice to get to 85 and some sun. Anyway, I’ll be back in a few days.
