The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Leaving Washington, DC; Travel laptops
On the bus to the airport. We've hit traffic on the interstate. It is just as well that I still have two hours until my flight leaves (no idea how long from here to airport).

My stay in Washington, DC was nice. It would have been nice to visit New York as well but I doubt I could have handled all the walking in just one day. As it is I've been taking it very lesuirely between sights in DC and surrounding areas. I'll write up more about the entire trip when I can get the pictures uploaded. Tonight I'll be busy preparing for tomorrow's road trip so that probably won't be until the beginning of June.

Laptops seem to have gone up in price over the last 6 months. ripper82 had found one on NewEgg for under 400$ with very nice stats, but at the moment the only laptops they have are over 400$. They have some netbooks but the screen size is only 10", versus the smallest 14" of a laptop. I'll just have to refrain from an impulse buy with rush delivery and instead keep an eye out for better deals.

Hey, just want to make sure - have you requested your time entry ticket from the Getty's website?

No. Where do I need to go? I can't see the meetup description so I don't know everything I may need.

Slight problem:

This is the way the Getty Villa works, not sure why, but I think it's some pretentious need since they are located in Malibu. Basically, the Villa is free (with the exception of parking) and they only allow visitors in groups every half hour as long as they have the free timed entry ticket they got on the website. Well, the 12:00 slot is gone as of yesterday, and well, the next available is I believe 2:30?

Go to www.getty.edu for more info.

But you can't meet up with us if you don't have a time entry slot for 12, which are no longer available. You're not the only one who is, for lack of a better way to put it, SOL for 12. :(

Well, I had no way of knowing and there's nothing I can do about it now. Oh well.

Any thoughts about meeting up for a bite to eat or something outside of the meetup group?

Yeah, we can have dinner/drinks at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood Saturday, if you want?

Wait. Did I not tell you to get your ticket for the getty?

It's entirely possible you did. Things have been quite hectic as far as making sure I've had things planned and I've frequently felt like I was forgetting someone or something. So far I hadn't, but this may have been at least one thing now. *shrug*

Sorry, I'm not seeing anything about needing to get a ticket. Oh well, that's okay.

I'll be in town (or at least passing through, depending on what I pull together tonight) starting tomorrow afternoon.

And yes, dinner/drinks at Hamburger Mary's on Saturday sounds delicious. I'll PM you my number.
