11 days till departure
It's starting to feel strange. I leave for Osaka in less than 2 weeks. All my paperwork is ready to go, just don't know if I am yet. I have this crazy notion to say goodbye to all my friends here before I leave. That's starting to backfire more than I planned. I have so little time left in Denver. I'll be leaving Colorado around the 2nd or 3rd of January to trek up to Minneapolis to hang out with my parents for a few days before I leave. Also need to get some shopping done for...the dreaded business suits. That's right cats and kittens, I'm going to need to dress up every day for work. Wish I could just wear a nice dickie, seeing that my students will only be seeing me from the neck up via our teleconferencing teaching methods. I'll have to post or send ya'll some pictures of me all gussied up. I'm sure very few if any of you have had the pleasure of seeing that.
