So I decided to do this little trip around the world.
At first, I referred to it as happening 'in the middle of next year.'
Then it was 'in the middle of this year.'
Then it was 'in a few months.'
Then 'a few' became 'a couple.'
Then somehow I was going away 'next month.'
At midnight last night (actually, it was while I waited for my clock to tick over to 12:01 so I could see what the next month's picture was on my calendar. No I couldn't do it any earlier) I realised that all of these references to my upcoming trip no longer applied.
It is July. I am going to San Francisco this month. And it's a Tuesday, which means in exactly two weeks I will be heading off around the world, armed merely with 250 business cards and an internet full of blog posts. It suddenly seems like this might actually be about to happen.
Two weeks to San Francisco, BlogHer, and hopefully the USA trip of a lifetime.
