our flight arrived at LAX shortly after 7pm, and since i flew thru customs and didn't check in any bags, i was curbside by 7:30pm and in my cousin's car minutes after. since i parked my car at work, it took me a few minutes to get adjusted to sitting in a car again, and driving on the right hand side of the street, at that.

woke up at 7am, did a light morning workout, and made it work on time - early in fact. cold, harsh reality kicked in immediately, as several hundred e-mails stared me in the eye and refused to disappear without incident. however, thoughts of white sand and gorgeously clear turquoise water somehow got me thru the day...
