Hasty departure...

Last night I bought plane tickets for a flight that leaves tonight. I've never done something this substantial with such short notice. It's been a little crazy the past few days, with classes starting (or rather "class," as I only have one this semester) and my field work finally kicking into gear. But one piece of good news came out of my first class on Monday: while the class is scheduled for Monday-Wednesday-Friday, it only sometimes meets on Friday, to make up for the Mondays and Wednesdays that the professor misses due to travel. And there's no class this Friday.

So suddenly everything was perfect--I had a long weekend, the Housemate was free to take a long weekend, and our window of opportunity to use a friend's temporarily empty apartment was still open. We bought tickets and got a rental car in a hurry, and tonight we're off. I'm not sure what my internet access will be there, but I'll update with more info when I can. Now I have to get some lab work done before I go home to pack. Catch you later.

Okay, seriously!? A quick vacation!? I read the title and thought, "oh no! She's all the way in Hawaii and something horrible has happened and she has to fly home right away!"

Don't scare me like that! But have all kinds of fun. :)

I know you're not really around right now but I came across this site thanks to Nerdapproved.com and I wanted to link you. This guy has a whole "how to" that shows him making a replica Mass Effect M8 Avenger Assault Rifle. It's SWEET.

Angel - Sorry about that. It was a hasty post as well, so maybe I didn't really think through the title as much as I should have :) And that is a really sweet replica of the assault rifle.

Hez, Vanessa, Ambiguous Geek, and Amy - Thanks! I had an awesome time on the Big Island :)
