Van's, plans, and... (something ending in -ans that means 'indolence')

Saturday was Van & Ron's annual people's fair brunch. Jerry was tied up with fu, so I went by my lonesome. It was good to see them, and we had some excellent conversation time. Van showed me a neat travel planning site called Rome to Rio, which suggests that the cheapest way to get to to Annecy may be to avoid Paris entirely, and to fly instead through Geneva. So now we're thinking that rather than doing big famous touristy things in Paris that have lines you wait in for hours, we might instead do our touristing poking around the countryside and little towns in the Alps.

Other than that, I did fuck-all this weekend. Just a lot of downtime, which was very good.

This morning I had the Big Important Meeting with our division directors where we discussed the Strategic Plan I was in charge of. (This was supposed to happen two weeks ago, but got postponed.) It went well. I was a little stumbly at first, until I got my brain in gear, but it went well and I got a lot of compliments. So hooray! I done good, it seems.

There's more stuff I need to catch up on, but that's it for recent (non-) happenings.
