Off to St. Louis

I’m off to St. Louis tomorrow. Not a pleasure trip, a business one where I will collaborate on an internal project. It looks like it’ll be three intensive (and long) days. If all goes well, I may be able to talk about it in a couple of months (after it is announced to the world at large – or at least to some people…).

I like traveling. It allows me to see new places and maybe bag a couple more geocaches. The down side to this trip is that there aren’t many flights from home to St. Louis, and none direct. This makes my transit fairly long (6 hours or so each way). It’s almost faster to fly to Europe (direct to London, UK). And, I have a terminal change at Toronto’s Pearson – one of the worse airports to have to go through a terminal change…

Things not to do…

I am a klutz.

When one is making pizza on a pizza stone in a hot oven and one put it on the stove prior to transferring the pizza to a board for cutting and one inadvertently hits it causing it to fall, one does not try to catch it to prevent it from breaking on the tile floor. Doing so will result in second degree burns on two fingers, first degree burns on three, and the stone will still end up falling, breaking, and cracking a floor tile…

Luckily, I keep some 2nd Skin® burn pads around – not because I burn myself often, they are sensational on blisters.

Now, I am typing with eight fingers instead of ten. This is not fun…
