[the weather today is |coffee. now. give me.]

We're home from two weeks of holiday in the USA. I have so many photos and so many feelings. I saw my parents. I saw a large chunk of my extended Filipino family, who brought us a dizzying array of Oreos, bags of arare, a gigantic watermelon and a lot of love. I saw my cousin, for whom Keiki is named, and whom I haven't seen since our grandfather died in 2001.

Having dropped off our horrifically jet-lagged children at nursery with warnings about naps and a lot of apologies, I return to work, and immediately foment an unscientific poll.

Poll #2053724 Email, why so broken

How to deal with an e-mail backlog?

Sounds like and amazing/exhausting trip.

And BURN THEM ALL, of course.

It was both, yes. I'm still recovering.

Burning/deleting: Very satisfying!

Off topic (sort of) but have you visited the Philippines (I thought you had) and if so, which parts are worth seeing? I would love to do a trip there some day...

Nope, I've never been. I really wanted to go with my dad, but we've never managed to make it happen. I suspect he really doesn't want to return. If we do go anywhere for nostalgic reasons, it's most likely to be Hawai'i.
