Back...

...from a beautiful vacation. No emails, no internet, just lots of sunshine, drinks, and fun. Took an endgame book with me but study was rather limited (mostly due to cocktail-induced laziness).

lol... yeah seems like it's a bit quieter than usual in the chess blogosphere. Personally, I just seem to have less and less time for chess these days, which doth suck.

Welcome back! But admit no chessing kinda hurt...

No emails, no internet

So it is possible to survive for a week without that. Nice job.

wang: thanks! yes, it did like, hurt, sort of :)

lep: crazy notion huh? I didn't think it was possible but it worked.

I took a chess book to Korea with me. I'm not sure it ever made it out of the carry on bag, except to get moved to the checked luggage bag on the return trip. We always have such good intentions on vacation, but the vacation itself gets in the way.

I guess I will have no excuse on my next trip since part of it will be in Dallas for the US Open.

WAIT!! I have the excuse....."I was too busy playing chess to study."

Polly: lol, so true... I usually have the best intentions, and even on business trips I'll often carry one or two books, thinking I'll study them on the plane or something. Usually doesn't happen :)
