I'm checking off my lists: My hair is done and my clothes are packed. Both the house-sitters are in place and fully briefed. I took the battery out of the stun gun so it wouldn't accidentally go off in my luggage and get me put on the no-fly list. (But I bet they still search my suitcase.) I think I'm ready.

So I fly to Chicago today, and I return next Tuesday the 29th, and thus I'll be taking calls again as of Wednesday. Otherwise, my business phone will be turned off most of the time I'm gone. I will try to answer emails if it's a genuinely time-sensitive matter, but don't hang your hat on that.

And to all the people who whom I already owe emails: sorry, sorry, sorry, I have been so busy. When I get back next week, I'll get all caught up, I swear!

Now I'm looking forward to a highly amusing weekend....
