I was away for a few days to go to Red Hat HQ - the whole thing felt like an episode of 24, trying to fill every minute with some activity or other. Only Jack Bauer doesn't have to wait for an hour for an Airport shuttle to the hotel; or a five minute queue for the gents toilets. Those would be pretty unexciting episodes. Fortunately everything went to plan and on the last day was able to fit in exchanging my laptop (from an old Dell to a new IBM T41), doing two interviews, attending various sessions, receiving a long-service award, packing, and making it to the airport with time to spare.
Anyway, I normally put on a ton of weight when I visit the US so I weighed myself before and after my trip. I actually ended up losing 5 lbs because the food was dreadful and we didn't have time to go get alternatives. Fortunately I'd taken a gift of English chocolate for a friend and ended up keeping one of the bars for emergencies.
