Red Is Positive, Black Is Ground

Sometimes you get your wires crossed. You keep working but you feel like it could be better. For the last three weeks or so I’ve just been telling myself “red is positive, black is ground.” It’s all about keeping my head together, getting progress made on the project I’m on, and generally not screwing up until I get to go on vacation. In a few days time I’ll be winging my way back to New Zealand for another snowboarding vacation. This time Keith and I will be joined by Cortney, Mark, and Ben. I’m looking forward to meeting Ben (he’s back at Blue Sky) and the other people on the trip. We’ll have our friend Mani as an instructor again so that should be a hoot. I’ve put wax on the snowboard. I found the NZ power plug adapter. I’ve gotten everything I need for the trip. Now I just have to work on not exploding before I get out of here. I’m getting so excited to go because this will be a good stretch of time off and then I’ll come back and jump back into my project at work. I only wish more friends could have joined us on the trip, that would surely make the time feel like it’s going slower. The flight is 12.5 hours or so.  I’m kind of looking forward to it.  Hopefully I’ll sleep most of the way and kind of use it as a decompression time. I’ll post updates if I can and for sure once I’m back. Until then you can see a smattering of the pics from our 2005 trip.
