I hate traveling while I'm still sick. I feel like I'm spending all day trying to rally for meetings and then I don't have the energy to do my "other" work once I get to the hotel. Add to that my not sleeping well and I've been a real joy to be around lately. I finished two books this week which must be a new record for me. I read Dan Kennedy's Rock On: an Office Power Ballad just before we left and that had a lack-luster ending but was very funny all the same. He had a great way of describing corporate life and it made me feel like my office environment is a little less crazy in comparison.
And on the flights home today I started and finished Steve Martin's Born Standing Up. I loved reading about where some of his famous stand up lines came from that I've memorized as a kid and get some perspective on his life on the road. I recommend both books whole-heartedly.
I think I'm going to make the change to a more "serious" book and read Barack Obama's Audacity of Hope. I've had it on my bookshelf for months and now is as good a time as any to read it. I'll let you know how that goes.
Right now it's late and I'm pretty cranky so I think I'll just snuggle up with the kitties and try to get some sleep. Tomorrow has long day written all over it.
