Coming to America
« on: 14/02/2005 08:46:47 »
Hi all,

just thought you American lot would like to know that I'll be visiting your country this week for the AAAS in DC. I suspect that the customs officers will be as anal, affable, and polite as ever, but I'm nontheless looking forward to the experience (not the customs people, the conference !).

Have a great trip Chris.

It's nice to know that while you're there, with your help and by your example our American chums will learn how to be nice and polite ;)

looks like it should be a fun conention chris, I'm jealous.  hell, i'd be happy just to go to DC again, let alone the confrence.  the best itallian resturaunt i've ever eaten at was in DC.  No clue where exactly it was, just a tiny hole in the wall place, but if i was out there again, I'd find it..... somehow.

if your plane somehow gets lost and you end up in minesota and need a place to crash, feel free to hit me up [:p]

Are YOUR mice nude? ;)

The food at the hotel was terrible. The science was good though, and I think we put some interesting stuff out on the radio.

got home to a blizzard.

Best
