Stopover at Orange County: It's Not All Orange Trees

Mos has been ragging me to update my blog to let you all know that I am alive. Sigh. Right. Sorry guys. I've been neglecting my email and all that too. Just in case you've been wondering what's happening.

So uh, I think previously I mentioned being sent off to the States for work stuff.

So yeah. I am in the States now. The peculiarly named Orange County in particular. Sitting in a hotel room with a new computer (old one died on me again) and sneaking some blogging time between work and exploring a land vastly different from what I am used to.

I wish I could say that the reason I haven't been blogging much is that I haven't had the time. Truth is, I haven't had the mental energy. Those of you who have ever had the experience of having to live in a foreign country for a little while might understand how it feels. There's a kind of mental exhaustion. While I hold the philosophy of not posting anything unless I have something to say... but then this is a travel themed blog, and I am traveling, so I don't really have an excuse not to blog do I?

Anyway almost every weekend so far has been spent being brought all over to "see the sights", it's physically exhausting sometimes too (but interesting). I do feel more used to good ol' california now. Happy to report my comic blogging brain has finally awakened from sleep mode now, so expect to hear more of my rambling thoughts incoming shortly.

ps: This is going to sound incredibly whiny coming from me, but anyone have any idea why the american 5 cent nickel is such a larger coin than the 10 cent dime? I ALWAYS stumble over this while handling change, no matter how many times I have this problem.
