Tired from the weekend off, now to relax and work

Two days of Ig Nobel ceremony work in Boston, then a party in NYC, both of which ran late into the evening, have got me craving my currently normal early to bed, early to rise pattern.  95% humidity here in Newport also has me beat.
The party was at the house of the fellow who owns and runs this web site, http://atlantic-cable.com/ , and he has an incredible amount of cable system memorablia, so it was a little like staying in a museum of stuff in which I am very interested.  Very cool.  I also got to see a few old friends, and make some arrangments for future activities.
Geri was a star and rose early (for her) and took me to the New Rochelle Amtrak station so I could take the train to Providece and from there a bus to Newport and arrive mid-afternoon.  A run for provisions and then sorting some more stuff in my digs took some time- we'd removed all the OHP and personal gear from MYSTIC in a progression, and stored it, so sorting it all out is taking some effort.
I'm heading for NYC again next weekend, for this: http://caravanstage.org/portfolio/hacked-treasure-of-the-empire/
And I may go to the UK a couple of weeks later for the Arthur Ransome Society trustees meeting.  Newark to Glasgow seems the best flight to end up in the Lake District.
.
I'm looking forward to this week's work, which should include the stepping of the main and mizzen masts.  I don't think I have an active role in that activity, but I can't ignore it, and may be able to help the rigging crew.

It's almost sundown, and I still don't have any lamps in my room, so I'll do the outdoor workers thing and go to bed and then rise with the sun.
Goodnight.
