This trip is a little different from previous ones; before, I usually flew in on Monday, but now that the Show With No Name is over, I can come in a little earlier and have a chance to get on Pacific time before my first day of work. I'm not sure what I'll be doing this afternoon and evening, but I'm thinking it will involve Harry Potter, my laptop, and a trip to the hot tub at the Wild Palms Hotel. My accommodations during the week aren't as fancy (Quality Inn of Silicon Valley), but they are closer to work, have free Internet access, and are about $30/night less expensive. On Friday, I get to return to the Wild Palms before flying back to Austin on Saturday morning.
Checking weather.com, it looks like the weather in the South Bay will be in the 50's all week with occasional rain clearing up around Thursday. I'm packing a couple of sweaters and a jacket. I hope its clear enough for me to take some long walks in the evening.
