Over at Life After Jerusalem, Digger wrote a good explanation of the bidding process. Makes much more sense than the convoluted explanation I keep giving my relatives. So go read it if you want to know more.
I'm still plowing through post reports. Okay, not quite true. I took a break from that today to daydream about a possible winter holiday on a beach in Vietnam. Found a beach, found a resort - now I just have to dream up a way to fund this imaginary trip (no more R&R travel left for us this tour). I think it's back to work for me in September.
Hey, all these dreams: dreaming of a beach holiday... dreaming of a great next assignment... why shouldn't I be dreaming? The air quality in Beijing today was obscenely bad. It was over 200 on the scale I told you about awhile back. So I mostly stayed inside and dreamt of fresh air.
Tomorrow's a school day. I'll be spending my free time driving around town in search of a blender to replace the one I shattered last week. And I'll be prepping for a little gathering I've organized in my house Tuesday morning. At last count, about 35 people have been invited over for a tea party of sorts. Don't know how many will actually show up. Gonna be busy.
