Getting to Hawaii is…

…made easier when the airline over compensates for mistakes by bumping you to first class

I have a meeting for the 2009 International Year of Astronomy (friend them on MySpace!) tomorrow, and a got talked into giving a talk on Sunday by a fellow EPO person I ran into on the bus from the airport to the hotel. The main event starts Sunday night.

I hope you come along for the ride.

    As to the IYA, I’m already on it (at Myspace). It’s something I’m looking forward to participating in (in official or unofficial ways) as time goes by.
