Another Quick Trip to Seattle
Last week I slipped in another quick trip to Seattle. The weather was pretty bad there. I really need to think seriously about buying a jacket (I took all my jackets to Austria on the last trip and left them there) for these occasions, even though I do not need one in Houston. But anyway: It was a nice short trip. Mostly business. Some good food.
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know what is coming now: We had a 10-person dinner at Wild Ginger, and it was excellent as always. I almost feel bad about it at this point, because I feel I should seek out some new restaurants, but Wild Ginger is such a no-brainer, I always find myself going back.
I took a red-eye back to Houston, getting into Houston at 6:30am. At this point, I really wonder about taking red-eye (overnight) flights. It seems that the chances of getting upgraded to business class are not good enough anymore, and if you are stuck in a regular seat and have a hard time sleeping on planes (like I do), then red-eyes really do not save any time. I ended up sleeping most of the next day anyway, and I was just miserable. I might as well have just come back the next day and sidestepped the misery...
