On My Way...

September 27th, 2008 (09:38 am)

Well, I'm still alive (barely) and surviving reading about my company in the news.

However - I'll be spending the next couple of weeks blogging from the Pusan International Film Festival, the largest festival / film market in Asia (or so they tell me). The schedule looks pretty full, and the best thing - these are films that don't seem to be scheduled for my neck of the woods. So this year I'm missing the new York Film Festival, but this more than makes up for it.

How not to start a vacation:

  1. Find out four days before you leave that your brand new digital camera isn't compatible with your brand new notebook's operating system
  2. Find out two days before you leave that the guy in the store didn't really know what he was talking about, and he didn't figure out a workaround so you can use your camera with your notebook
  3. Not get any sleep the night before you leave, and find out while you're packing that the store sold you the wrong current converter with the aforementioned camera,/li>
  4. Also find out while you're packing that the straight plug converter (because Korea is DC and the wall sockets are different from anywhere else, including Europe) is actually meant to attach to a different piece of equipment, which you don't own, so it's not universal.
  5. The taxi firm screws up your 6:45 am reservation and then shows up 20 minutes late, just cancelling out the 20 mins you'd alloted to stop by the ATM to pay him and tip the shuttle driver, and pick up a cup of tea so you don't get dehydrated.
  6. The shuttle driver manages to find every bump in the ~40 miles to the airport, so even though you're about to pass out from lack of sleep, you can't actually sleep
  7. </ul>
    Well, we've gotten the crap out of the way right now. It's only going to be better from here on. %^}

    And I will even craft an icon for thiws (although maybe once i get there).
