So this evening Leah and I booked our flights (business class using our hard earned miles with Virgin) for our week long visit to the U.K. in January next year. Couple that with spending a long weekend in Washington D.C. in early December means that I’ve used up all of my vacation days for the year. So I guess this Christmas will probably be the first time in my working life that I have to work and not get a whole week off!
And this will be my first visit back to the U.K. in over 2 years! I am sure my parents will be more than glad to see me. But to be honest, apart from family connections there is nothing that draw me to the U.K. right now, or ever. There are nothing that I can get in the U.K. that I can get in the U.S. but cheaper, better, more choices. Especially not with the current foreign exchange rate!
Talking about Christmas, I think the new U2 iPod will make great Christmas gift for me even if I have never been a U2 fan 🙂 (Hint, hint. Although a new tennis racket will do very nicely too) I think it will be problematic on how to protect the iPod and show off the black/red exterior at the same time.
