weather: numb finger blogging
Ye gods, it is butt ass cold out there! Somewhere in my bones I realize that today is a wee bit better than yesterday as there’s less wind, but still… ouch! Even so, I’m not sure what it says that I’d rather come to work for 8 hours, than get to the airport 2 hours early for a flight that’s barely an hour in the air. I always get crazy about packing for a trip, short or long, I feel as though I’m going to forget something, and now with the checked baggage fees, I’m desperately trying to squeeze everything I need into a carry-on bag. At least the last time I flew it was a carry-on, for all I know they’ve changed the rules on those as well. I used to really enjoy flying, but somewhere along the line, it’s turned into a major hassle, and it isn’t just in the post-9/11 landscape, quality and service of air travel’s been declining for years. Combine that with an airport full of people that just have to “get there” for Christmas and I’ll just do my best to find a quiet spot where I can listen to my music and keep an eye on the Departing Flights board.
I’ve loaded up the macbook with video, comic books, music, etc. and I have lots of blogs to catch up on while I’m away, so I won’t be at a loss for something to do online. I am not, however, installing World of Warcraft on the laptop. I see no reason to make it that easy to ignore my family. Let’s hope I don’t regret that decision once I’m down there. 😈
