Now that I'm back home, it's time to tally up the statistics from when I was at home:
- Number of rug-colored dogs communed with during trip: 1. Please note, the rug-colored dog has given me permission to post her photo on the internet.
Number of close family members communed with during trip: 6. So all the main ones.
Number of books (bought, given or foraged) brought back home from home: 17. About half academic and half not-so-academic.
Number of books left at home due to lack of space in luggage: 13. The Complete Wreck to be exact.
Number of sneezes, coughs and nose-blowing incidents: too many to count. Was it the local dust mites? Rug-colored dog dander? Am I allergic to California?
Number of boyfriends Skyped while on trip: 1. Total number of people Skyped while on trip: 2.
Number of bloggers met over lunch: 1. And it was very cool. Please note, I'm not counting my brother on this list, although we did go to lunch (more than once), and he is a blogger.
Number of A Series of Unfortunate Events books read during trip: 6. I had read the first 7 books before.
Number of kilos (yes, kilos) gained during trip: almost 5...so about half a kilo per It's-It.
Amount of work done during trip: not as much as I had wanted. But almost enough.
Number of belated Christmas/Chanukah/Yule/Winter Solstice wishes to all: infinite.
