From the 29th of April to the 5th of May I shall not be in England, instead I shall be getting a suntan in Seattle.
What do you mean Seattle is full of rain and rarely has sunshine? Bugger it!
I shall be spending some time with Jeannie Cool (from the #joiito and #suwcharman on IRC channels I sometimes frequent) exploring Seattle, chilling out, and getting fingerprinted just for daring to enter the country.
So, what should I go and see while I am over there? Are there any ambulance people who I can talk to over there about their astounding cardiac arrest survival rate (the best in the world)? Will I fulfill my dream of worshipping at the altar of Microsoft? (I see the book Microserfs as an aspirational lifestyle, and I don’t see why Apple advocates should have all the fun). Will I be able to resist going up a ridiculously high tourist trap as I did when I visited Toronto? And can I be sneaky and buy a Mac Mini while over there with my strong Pound Sterling?
I’d love to meet up with other bloggers in the area, and while Jeannie is arranging some stuff for me, surely she can’t know everyone? Knowing Jeannie, it wouldn’t surprise me if she did, indeed, know every blogger in the area.
So…any bright ideas folks?
Later tonight I have the first of two nightshifts, and if you behave yourselves I might even give you the URL for the two (admittedly rough, but hopefully soon to improve) Podcasts I’m doing.
