Six bucks and my right nut says we're not landing in Chicago.

It was a harrowing travel day for me...I was supposed to be here at 8:30am, after about a 2 hour flight, and I made it here at about 4:30pm, after a cancelled flight, a delayed rescheduled flight, an almost cancelled while sitting on the tarmac flight, a further delay to fix the reason the plane was sitting on the tarmac, and an eventual rerouting into another town, over two hours away, only to be met with a Greyhound bus to bring me the two hours to the place I was originally supposed to fly into...which should have taken two hours, TOTAL. To top it off, I got to spend over an hour on the Greyhound bus waiting for the next incoming rerouted flight to get there so that those people could get on the bus as well. It was awesome.

Let's not even get into the fact that for the absolute joy that was my travel experience today, I got to get up and start my day at 3:45am. I want to especially thank the guy who sat next to me on the first leg of my journey that ignored NOT ONLY my Ipod plugged into my ears, BUT ALSO my closed eyes, head resting on a pillow, blanket pulled up to my neck, and not-exactly-subtle string of drool pouring out of my open, snoring mouth, in order to tell me all about how he'd been living in the woods in Alaska for the past couple of months and was SO EXCITED to (1) take a shower (I had to agree), (2) "see" his wife, and (3) use his own toilet. It was so uplifting Sir, thanks for sharing. No really. Loved the flannel and beard, very authentic.

I have some other things going on too that, if they come to a resolution, may be talked about here in the next few days. But, I'm just not sure. I have a lot of irons in the fire right now. So, update perhaps tomorrow...must. have. sleep.
