amd: ballerina escape

a vacation of sorts

We're going to North Carolina for a week with about a dozen of K's family. I'm kind of dreading it, but trying to be optimistic even in the face of overwhelming family. Fortunately we have the new laptop so I hopefully do some writing. And I might pick up a copy of Civilization for the DS today. I also hope to finish some of the books I've been simultaneously reading.

We'll be on the Outer Banks, a long string of barrier islands off the coast, which seems like an ideal place to be during hurricane season. It's where the Wright Brothers flew their famous flight and the English colony of Roanoke vanished under mysterious circumstances.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to tap into anyone's wireless there, but if so, I'll do some posting.
