So I've gone up to the DC region to visit my Ma for a couple of days. Posting and commenting may be low. Er, lower than usual. The trip was good, barring one nerve-racking moment when the plane's left wing dipped suddenly on the final approach. I was sure for a moment that the pilot would hit the wing on the ground, and we'd spin out -- but we didn't, and there was a collective sigh of relief in the cabin.
In other news, I got a physical, the events thereof were, at times, surreal. (And TMI.) One point: I wound up getting seven vaccinations. Three in the left arm, four in the right. I am now protected against everything from diptheria to typhoid.
