  • Mood:
I arrived in San Francisco Monday night, and although I haven't actually been busy every moment since then, it certainly has felt that way.

I'm vastly enjoying the luxury of having a long visit here stretching in front of me. I know in four weeks, I'm going to look back on that statement and wonder what I was thinking, because the time will fly, but certainly compared to a week-long or 10 day visit, being here for five weeks is delightfully plentiful.

Yesterday, I met with a couple of temp agencies in hopes of getting a short assignment while I'm here. Half of me hopes I get one, and half of me hopes I don't, so I guess either way, I win.
