Gee, and I thought my brain was actually little more focused and a little less obsessive than usual today. Riiiight. The Skyliner comment kind of reminds me of that one IniD doujinshi series I have where they're racing trains.
As a side note, my boss still hasn't actually told me that he's going, or that he won't be here for the next two weeks. He just assumed that I knew somehow.
So, based on today's paycheck, it looks like I have enough vacation time saved up that I could take a week in November and still have enough time for Yaoicon and the April trip.
Okay, this is a first. I have to burn vacation time before April, or I will max out my hours, and start losing time. Lovely. Maybe I will be getting back to Japan sooner than I had thought. Hey Maria, wanna run away for a week? ^_^
