Did you catch that little item in the middle? I get to go to Austria! I get three weeks of vacation, and it's quite possible I won't have used any of it by then, or at most a few days. So, since the company is going to be paying for the airfare, I'm thinking about maybe taking some vacation time and doing a little bopping around Europe. Of course, my last attempt at a vacation by myself didn't go so well, but we'll see. Maybe I can convince someone to meet me somewhere in Europe. Or maybe I'll just go visit all the German authors I've worked with in the past 9 months (I haven't counted, but it's quite possible I've worked with more German authors than non-German authors). In any case, I'll at least get to see Vienna and Salzburg.
