Boy I can’t believe I’m this close to leaving – there is still so much work to do so that when I leave my company for two weeks, it won’t burn down while I’m away! I always try to taper before I go on a vacation (not taper from beer, but from stress), so that I don’t spend the first half of the trip de-stressing. This trip might be a bit trickier, but I’m going to do my best. 39 Beers, 39 Steps, it’s all the same. You have to love Alfred Hitchcock and his choice of stunning blonde leading ladies: Madeleine Carroll, Tippi Hedren, Kim Novak, Grace Kelly, Eva Marie Saint, Ingrid Bergman. In the meantime, I’m cracking open another bottle!
