I missed you too, now let me SLEEP

Tali spent the first night we were back trampling up and down my body, pausing to paw at my face if I stopped petting him for more than a few seconds, then last night he was alternating between us, snuzzling Matt's nose, and head butting my face, purring and chirping all the time. Very cute, but I feel a bit jet lagged today, cat lagged - coming back to the left coast the time difference usually makes it easier to get up early for a week or so. Marble has been a little less pushy in showing her affection, she slept on me all night, and is more keen than usual to sit on my lap, but has been leaving the sleep deprivation treatment up to her diva of a brother.

It's good to be home, it was a great holiday, but it was turning into a money pit, I got a speeding ticket, Matt's phone died after riding a very wet (very fun!) water ride twice in a row in his pocket, then on the last evening in Williamsport, a bottle of beer tipped over right onto (and into) Matt's laptop keyboard and wireless card port. The computer still smells a bit of Yuengling's finest Lager, but appears to be working. The phone technically works, but the display is kaput, making it a little difficult to search contacts and whatnot.

Pennsylvania is such a beautiful state, I'll be posting photos once we get our acts together and download them. Rolling green farmland and forested hills, creeks (the size of rivers) and rivers (very big rivers), fireflies blinking in the twilight, houses made of brick, wood and fieldstone, and red painted barns.

Welcome home!

Welcome back! Sounds like a great trip. I had a nice trip too, but only for a weekend. You're really making me feel the travel bug again! You should be flattered that the cats actually noticed you were gone. Whenever I see my cat (she lives with my parents), I can never tell if she even knows who I am!

Wait... you left your exotic part of the world and went to - wait for it - Williamsport? Whatever for?! Everyone I know from Williamsport is on their way OUT, not in!

I'm glad you had a great trip to my home state. Next time, come a bit further east to Lancaster County. And when you do, remember this tip: It's pronounced AH-mish, not A-mish. :-D
