My brother called at 7 am to let us know he was safely in his London hotel room. So far he hasn't made it to an internet cafe, and I'm sure he's sleeping now. I am not particularly worried about him -- I reminded my parents that he's likely to walk most places, and his tour will use its own buses. He's doing a tour, then finishing up in Glasgow for Worldcon. He'll be filking.

I've been feeling rotten today -- a combination of three nights with only 5 hours of sleep, hideous heat outdoor, and alternating sinus headache and post-nasal drip. But I'm not _sick_. If it hadn't been for the meetings at work, I would have stayed home -- or left work early. But after 2 1/2 hours at the programming meeting, followed by the union meeting with voting on our contract, I am brain fried.

If it passed the vote, which is probable, I will be getting a raise, retroactive to the end of the last contract in 2002. I'll get a bit more than half the retroactive pay in September, the rest next July. Most of it is earmarked for my IRA, but I will be spending _some_ of it in frivolous ways.

I'm too tired to update the PBEM message for the other player in this bit, so I'm going to go to bed, and try to do it in the morning, when I hope I will be more coherent.
