Home again, home again, jiggity jig.

Checking stuff out that happened while I was gone: One of the organizers from Rim called me (yes, as in on the phone) and asked if I would be interested in being service park captain this year. *falls over in shock* I don't think I can do it, since I would have to be in Lancaster by 6 PM on Friday and that won't coordinate well with work. But after two weeks of taking guff from people on things that I had no control over and getting ditched at every opportunity, I appreciate the ego boo of having someone call me to say they think I'm cool and really want me. This? This has a lot to do with why I like rallying so much.

(Interestingly, on the plane back I had just been pondering if I was going to Rim or not. After remembering that Ezra kicked people out of the room so I could stay with him because he actually *wanted* me there, and thinking of all the friends and folks who remember me and think highly of me in the SoCal rally community (and aren't shy about saying so) I had already pretty much concluded that I would be stupid to not go. Now I'm more than convinced.)

On the less good side, it looks like the media server got hacked while I was gone, through VNC. Not sure what the damage is -- I classed the whole thing as "something to deal with when I'm more awake" -- but that will be off-line while I muck with the damage. (Which means no seeding for me for the duration.)

And now the laptop is acting whacked. I'm going to go do something that requires less brainpower.

Welcome back. Sorry to hear that the trip had some sucky parts, but I'm sure you'll think about the good stuff when less tired.

P.S. You're cool.

Yeah, in general it was pretty good. It was just highly stressful and hectic, with a lot of miscommunication going on. Which is about what is to be expected with 12 people, most of whom have never been to Japan before and the majority of whom have little to no international travel experience. *shrug* It was an experiment. Not one I plan on repeating, but hardly the end of the universe. As far as I can tell everyone is still talking to each other, which is an improvement over some trips I've been on.

Thanks! You're pretty cool yourself! :)

Pocky finds: Tiramisu Mousse Pocky, and Berry Mousse Pocky. There was also Mango Mousse Pocky which someone else bought and I was going to mooch off of, but never saw that person other than the first day or two. :( Hopefully the local Mitsuwa will get it in so I can try it.

"Ego boo" is something a friend of mine says, which I seem to have picked up. Dunno why.
