I see neither cornfedpig nor pipistrellus seem to have surfaced yet. This doesn't surprise me, as I've been laid flat by jet lag the past 24 hours, and I came back from New York by a fairly direct route. I saw them at JFK airport on Sunday night and I think they were going to fly via Reykjavik, Warsaw, Santiago, New York again and then Kyoto. Something like that.



I'm hard pressed to see how the trip could have been any better. The wedding went without a hitch, as did the reception, and even the music, for which I was responsible, went off okay, although I am never DJ-ing with iPods again, as the things that make them fine for personal use—the sensitivity of the controls, the briefness of the backlighting, etc—make them incredibly bad for use in a darkened dancing environment where people are expecting the same track to keep playing all the way through, and not suddenly change mid-song because a moth blew its nose half a fucking mile away.


EDIT: Oh, and, and, if you pause a track, after thirty seconds or so the iPod decides for itself you didn't really mean it, and starts playing anyway. This, for DJing purposes, can safely be labelled unsatisfuckingfactory.

It's probably best to get dressed anyway.

You've obviously never worked in Parliament.
