Back when I was pursuing a position at the Foreign Service, a friend at work asked me if there was a side of me he didn't know about - said I seemed like kind of a homebody to him. Not, in other words, the sort of person to whom being a Foreign Service Officer would appeal, what with all the travel.
Now, granted, one of the reasons I thought being a FSO would be cool was the opportunity to travel to strange places and get paid for it. But I got to thinking about what my friend had said, and he's right. I enjoy going places, but I like being home, too. I (still) don't have a passport, though I've been meaning to get one for years.

What brings this up in part is being accepted on a task force for work that is going to involve traveling - to Brookhaven NY for starters. Even though I have today off work I think I may stop by to make the arrangements. It's good to have lead time on this sort of thing. Part of me thinks 'cool' and part thinks 'I hate packing' and 'shit, have to find a cat-sitter at short notice'...
Still, the work will be interesting, I think. Another reason to stop in to work, to get the details on just what it is I'm supposedly going to be doing. Heh.
