Looks like I was a bit conservative with my prediction of Obama's margin of victory in the electoral college. I haven't yet had time to write my post-election wrap-up; in fact, I really haven't had time to do a lot of things I've wanted to do this week. maybe I'll get a chance to do that once I get back to Dubai.
Not that I really want to go back to Dubai, mind you. There comes a point at which the constant trips back and forth become tiresome and I've long since passed that point. When I agreed to assist with some projects over there back in April, I suspected that I might have to be out there through the summer but I did not think that I'd still have to be making these trips in the fall. My family misses me, and I miss the cooler weather and the football games. But such is the nature of my job: Dubai is where the work is right now.
Fortunately, this trip will be the shortest of the year; I'll be back in two weeks.
Anyway, off to the airport. With any luck, I'll get an aisle or window seat, and I won't be stuck in the "flying nursery" section of the aircraft this time...
