Homeward Bound.

I'm coming to the end of my traveling. Of course, these last few hundred miles mean hours upon hours at airports. While, I can't say that I'm enjoying this part of the trip...it has been, up to this point, uneventful. I've learned a few things about this whole business traveling. It is populated, for the most part, with men. So, if you have any doubt that the business world is still an old boy's club, then I suggest you fly out on a Sunday afternoon and spend a few weekenights at an indescript Marriott suites hotel (they have lots of names). I went to breakfast every morning, and found myself to be the only female in sight. The hotel was populated with male accountants, salesmen, and software engineers dressed business casual - the cobalt blue shirt with either khaki or black pants is a popular choice. It's an interesting world. It makes me glad that my job does not require a great deal of travel, because I am exhausted and so ready to be home. Here's a tip for you business travelers: if someone is in the loo, then just wait in your seat until it is available. Do not form a queue down the center aisle where there is not enough room for two people to pass - the woman with the unfortunate luck of being seated in the back row next to toilet (with my luck, yes, this is usually me) is terribly annoyed by grown men trying to squeeze 2 across down the aisle.

But in good news... I have managed to get more than planned accomplished at work, read 1.5 books, knit 2 skeins of Kureyon, and watch a fair amount of tv. I should be able to finish the Kureyon bag tomorrow night during Grey's Anatomy. Seriously. Knitting content to come very soon.

About to hit the airways myself as a tag along on my husband's business trip.
