I'm alone in the office today, doing the last bit of packing. Once this is done, I'll have Saturday and Sunday to relax a bit before getting on the plane Monday at 5pm. I'm really looking forward to some down time, I must say.

The movers are here today and it's freaking me out. Two days had been scheduled for this move, but it looks like they are nearly done. Tomorrow, the Salvation Army is coming to pick up the furniture, etc. that I'm not taking. Almost done...

More pictures... My sister Karen and my nephew Blake came to New York for a visit. It was the week-end after I got back from Copenhagen, so I was pretty jet lagged and had lots of work to do. Karen and Blake dropped me off at the office after brunch...Blake, who is seven, didn't want to leave...I got him hooked on to Bionicle. When they left, they went straight to FAO Swartz to buy some Bohrok.

Karen took some great pictures of the view outside the windows of the LEGO Direct office. Not the same view I'll have in Billund...

The movers are coming on Wednesday, but instead of packing I decided to post the pictures from my last trip to Denmark.

About three weeks ago, there was a Bionicle team meeting in Copenhagen that Jeremy (who works with me on and I attended. The day before the meeting, we visited Little Device who is developing a new game for the site, and had dinner with Dan, Anders and Nils.

The next night, after the Bionicle meeting, everyone went to dinner. It ended up being quite a fun night.

Thursday night was the big LEGO going away party at the Screening Room. My co-worker, Danny, is going back to Billund and his last day in NY is next week too, so it was a combined send off. Of course, I ended up getting pretty mushy (I'm really going to miss seeing my friends in this office), but not quite as mushy as Danny...

As I was starting to pack this week-end, not only did I produce 5 garbage bags full of clothes and shoes to get rid of, I found some old pictures of Jim and I back in the Day. This picture was taken at a club opening in 1993. I don’t remember which club... it’s when I was working at New York Magazine and I had a press pass… *sigh*

I was going over the Brooklyn Bridge tonight, and looked back to see the "tribute of lights". Rationally, I understand it. But the glow at "ground zero" only makes me think of the days and weeks after the attack. It makes me remember, so intensely, the shock, fear and sadness I felt when it happened. I know there are many people who have been much more effected by this than I have, and have lost people they knew and loved. I can't imagine. Even without any personal loss, I can't seem to get back to normal.

People seem to be amazed that I can leave New York for a place that’s...well... out of the way. I’m fine with moving to a place doesn’t have skyscrapers that people want to fly into. I’m fine with a place that’s a little less “exciting” than New York city.

Jim Kendall has been visiting from Madrid for the past few days and last night we had a chance to meet up with Edward, Sarah and Alba.

The countdown to the move has begun. All my stuff will be packed up and I'll be out of my apartment by March 28th. Then I'm on a plane to Billund, Denmark on April 1st.
