I'm leaving for L.A. tomorrow morning, then for Australia on Thursday. So I probably won't be posting for a couple of weeks, although you never know. Does Al Gore allow them to have the Internet over there?

In fact, if I don't get punched in the mouth by a Marine while I'm over there, I'll consider the entire trip wasted.
And, yes, I already checked. Toilets in America flush counter-clockwise.
