i was in paris for the last week. i came back from it with more energy than i had when i arrived, which is usually the opposite effect these "one week and turn around again" trips have on me. i think in part it's because i allowed myself enough "me time", which is to say that when i didn't feel like being around people i simply stayed in my room and worked from there; when i didn't feel like blogging, i didn't. this led to me "missing" 2 mornings and not blogging at all. on the one hand i feel a bit bad about this, but on the other hand i'm glad that it didn't take 2-3 days to feel back on my feet again.
that said, paris was very useful when it came to kde and the ubuntu / canonical universe. jonathan riddel and the others involved are doing great work, and ken gets to continue on working on artwork there too. huzzah's all around.
i have a work-week at home and then i'm off again, this time for the kde four core hackathon. i think that'll be truly great. though i'll be watching my laptop twice as carefully when dfaure is around from now on so he doesn't give in to temptation and put "funny" messages on my log-in as he did in paris. ;)
