If I am 12 hours AHEAD of eastern time, am I really “catching up”? Or am I waiting for everyone else to catch up with me?

via Twitterrific

Being 12 time zones away means all of my daily tweets come in during the night. Wake up, catch up.

Day 2 in Malaysia: woke up at 4am (jet-lag), shopped at the “wet market”, came home and beat that DSL modem into submission — yeah!

Wednesday’s weather report for Malaysia: hot, humid, sticky. Oh wait, that was yesterday’s report…

Day 1 in Malaysia: changing pace, remembering what local food is like, shopping for nothing, and fighting a DSL modem?

So THIS is what oh-dark-thirty feels like!

I just noticed that I’ve gone all morning without my Twitter client running… I feel like I’ve just noticed that my fly was open!

It was a day of cake and airplanes and candy and horses and hidden treasures… in that order.
