Well, it hasn’t been the nicest week. It’s super cold again, I’ve been feeling tired and grumpy, there’s some unpleasantness at work, and I paid way too much for a bad haircut. Hmph.

A week from now I’ll be on a plane to Egypt, though. A week of warm weather and relaxation and pyramids. The funny thing about going to Egypt is that while it sounds pretty exotic and cool to Americans, it is totally not for Russians. Because Egypt’s one of the few countries that doesn’t have onerous visa requirements for Russian citizens, there are tons of cheap package tours available from here. So it’s like, “Oh, you’re going to Egypt? Loser.” I don’t care though.
