Austin 2019: Prelude

So, I have a two hour long wait before my flight to Japan. I thought I’d bang out a post since I haven’t been writing in a while. I brought my Planck to travel with me. I feel like this would be the board i’d miss the least if I ever lose it. Not that I hate it or anytthing, I like it a lot less than my other boards. On the bright side, I might be a better Ortho-user by the end of the trip. Because I’ll have no other keyboards to turn to as backup when I don’t feel like using it anymore.

Honestly, I think it’s just because of the XDA keycaps on this keyboard. The lack of gaps in between each key really frustrates me sometimes. Like, when I can’t tell if I’m moving from one key to the next before hitting it, I consider it a fail. Maybe if I wasn’t a touch typist. But I am, and I feel like it would be a skill detrimental to lose. After all, it’s only on this keyboard that I’m having issues. I think I would struggle less with a staggered 30% keyboard. I’ll throw on a set of DSA keycaps in the future to see if my typing experience improves.

Anyway, that’s just a random rant. It doesn’t really matter. I’m typing fine on this. Not the best but it’s passable.

So what am I doing with my last two hours in KL on a Monday night? I had a smoke earlier, now I’m sitting at Dome, waiting for a drink to arrive. It has been a while and this place isn’t crowded. They might have forgotten. Or it takes a real long time to prepare an iced long black. I’m not sure. Hopefully it won’t be too long since I am feeling a bit thirsty.

Oh wait, let me back up a bit for those of you not in the know. I’m heading to America tonight to attend my sister’s wedding. Yes, she’s off the market guys, too late. I’ll be there for about a week. I haven’t attended a wedding in the United States before, so that should be an interesting experience. I’ll also be the first official guest to stay over at my sister’s brand new home. Should be fun, since I’m also helping them to move in. Oh, and I have a companion with me but I won’t get to see her for a long time.

It was a lot of trouble, but I managed to get Snuggles on the first leg of the flight to America. Yes that is right, our little schnoodle is migrating. I’m gonna miss her, but it’s probably for the best. She’s going to have a nice backyard to run around in. And dig holes in. And catch rats in (hopefully there aren’t any rats in the house). I think she’s going to love it there. If anything, at least she’ll get to enjoy better weather. And she’ll be reunited with my sister after so many years.

Since there are no direct flights from KLto Austin, I had to get a flight that was reasonably priced with the least amount of stops (to bring my pet along – more info in a future post), I’ll be landing at Narita airport in Tokyo Japan tomorrow morning. I’ll have a 10 hour layover so that will give me plenty of time to look for some food to eat. And more time to bang out another blog post. Until then, stay tuned (assuming this isn’t the last post I send out lel).

I’m actually looking forward to catching some movies on the plane. It’s been a while since I watched a movie on the airplane.
