Beta Testing and Vacation

I'm currently beta testing the new Create Entries page in Dreamwidth, which so far is much prettier and user friendly than anything I've seen in LJ. Looks like this is going to work for me.

This morning, I booked flights for our vacation. We're flying into Amsterdam and then doing rail trips to Germany, Prague and Austria. At least, that's the current plan. I'd hoped to go to Prague to see Don Giovanni in the theater where it premiered, but that doesn't look like it will work, so I may make some adjustments. It'll depend largely on time, expense, and what looks cool. The flight is on KLM which I remember as being pretty good, though that was also 19 years ago, so who knows? Anyway, we should have some fun. I'm hoping I can find a deal on a night in the Pulitzer Hotel, but that may be prohibitive. We'll see. More details to come.

Last night was pretty quiet. Basically we just caught up on shows. I'm kind of relieved that Homeland is finished because Sunday was getting really crowded.

Tonight I'll run, and then maybe suggest we eat dinner on the patio. The weather is bloody fantastic and I'd like to take advantage of it.

There are some new people on my list. Hi new people. I'll write a more comprehensive "biographical" post, but if you, or anyone else would like to ask me something, feel free to in this poll box:

Feel free to ask me whatever you like, no matter how personal. No one will see who asked what but me. I promise to answer truthfully.

What a fun trip! We were thinking of doing Prague and Croatia for a babymoon, but we're gonna be a little more mellow in Kauai.

i couldn't view your poll. i think dw bit wanted me to login, and i don't have a dw account.

Yeah, I'll have to come up with something else I think. I'm not sure that polls on Dreamwidth work all that well. Either that, or no one cares to ask me any questions who has access.

I'll hold off on asking you things, haha, but wanted to comment on KLM. I've done that IAD to AMS route a few times the past year and its *fantastic*. The plane is fairly new, you get the old school Hot Towel before your meal, and the food is actually good. Everything is tidy and clean and scented with Dutch efficiency.

I haven't been to Prague since 1993 so things have changed there a bit, haha. Whereabouts in Germany are you thinking?

Finally, re: Homeland. Sadly I think so much of that is paralleling real life, except for the hilarious zipping between Brooklyn and the Dulles Corridor like its Takoma Park to Columbia. I'm going to miss Quinn but love how complex F. Murray Abraham plays his characters.
