Just about ready to go (Should be in bed already)

Just the thrill of not sitting in my room all day to work is enough to make me giddy :) . On top of that, get to hang around with a beautiful woman for a week. Apparently I'm getting treated to a movie tomorrow night too. There's even a dog to keep me company while ...
