Hit and run

I was in a small traffic accident last night on my way home from work. I was doing my thing, driving down the street on my motorbike when some taxi driver, oblivious to the on-coming traffic decided to suddenly make a u-turn. By the time he saw me, it was too late and he hit the front of my bike. I didn't fall off luckily, but there was enough damage to my bike that we had to go to the police and now I have to do all this dreaded insurance work. Seriously, just look where you're going.

Other than that, things have been going okay. The baby got up at five today and is now sitting on Yoko's stomach, laughing at everything and farting.

It looks like I am going to be able to go to Laos and the Philippines in March for both of the conferences that I wanted to hit at little or no extra cost, as I can fly to Laos through the Philippines. This is good news not only for me, but also the good people of the Philippines.
