Yay for Easter, and yay for short weeks! I'm so looking forward to this weekend being a 4 day break, bookended on either side by blissfully short weeks. A 4 day working week sounds just about right, don't you think? Symmetrical. And in the process effectively doing away completely with the need for the Hump Day. Imagine every Tuesday night shutting the door to the office and thinking well, that's the week half done.
I think I'm on to something, frankly.
Anyhoo. Tall & Handsome, the Big Botanist, the Titan Taxonomist, arrives in town tomorrow night in a flurry of tall beardedness, and a trail of plant samples and knitting needles. Thursday morning he heads off about 5 hours north of Sydney (ish) to set up for a course he's teaching... and Thursday night I head off to join him! Yup, I'm going bush.
4 days of hanging out, spending bits of time with Tall & Handsome, grabbing my camera and going on some of the field trips, helping out around the camp and probably copious amounts of knitting/napping/reading. His fellow lecturers have made me feel most welcome, and I'm even getting a lift with one of them after work on Thursday evening. Aside from hanging out with T&H, something we have really had very little chance to do (given the distance that separates us), I'm also exciting about the potential photo op it presents. I won't have an internet connection, but I'm figuring I'll take the laptop along just in case, so I can download pics off the camera as I go.
And given that the week is half done (see how good that is?) I'm now really starting to get excited.
