So, here in the company apartment in the Ukraine, I had set my phone for a 9 AM wake-up call. It did, in fact, work, and I awoke to shut it off. However, I then went right back to bed (so to speak — it’s actually a couch pull-out), and slept on and off until I dedcided to check the time. 3 PM. Well, this is pretty standard for me in terms of weekend sleep. At least, sleeping late — been a while since I had actually slept past 1 PM. Here’s hoping I do better tomorrow when it’s time to actually go to work, eh? Speaking of which I need to remember to make sure I have all my work files transferred over to my flash drives….
The flight over was, I’m happy to say, smooth and uneventful. The connecting flight out of Kiev was delayed for about an hour, but otherwise things were fine. It’s definitely interesting hanging out in a country where the alphabet is somewhat recognizable, as sometimes you think you know what it’s saying, but usually you’re wrong, because the letters you know are not actually pronounced the same way. Naturally, there are some English words here that are universal: “Exit,” “Sale,” and, of course, “Strip Club.”
Currently I’m alone in the apartment. People from the office invited Allen (and us, by default) to play volleyball today. Allen wasn’t sure when that would take place and was supposed to call them in the morning. So, when I finally got up, both Allen and Cindy were gone — off to have fun playing volleyball while I was stuck home. So sad. While I wait, I think I’ll work on hooking my computer up to the TV and see about playing some video games.
Otherwise, I also need to make a few errands today — I forgot to bring any gym shorts, so doing my Insanity workouts will be somewhat tricky, as I will have to just go in my boxers. Hey, I did it last night, so it can be done, but still, it’d be nice to be “better dressed” should someone walk in.
