I spent the last two and a half weeks on the east coast (in the D.C. and Philadelphia metro areas), visiting family and friends. I didn't spend the whole time ignoring work, though. (And I wasn't the only one; my dad had a big (electronic) pile of final exams to read, and a journal issue to finish.)

Both because other people weren't around much (asking questions, asking for reviews, etc.) and because I was away from the distractions of the office, it was a good chance to work on some larger tasks (rather than go through blocker lists). Airplane and train rides are especially good for this (and it's not even possible to work through blocker lists without substantial preparation, since it's very hard to use Bugzilla offline)

Now I'm back in California, and I'll be back in the office in a few hours, and should be getting back to working through smaller tasks shortly, such as the end (I hope) of the 1.9.1 blocker list.

And maybe I'll even blog more this year.
