My life is usually pretty uneventful which is why I have to come up with other things to blog about. But not this time! I am having an adventure - how exciting!
I am currently stuck, oh so stuck in an airport. My plane tried to fly here once and turned back (bad weather, bad!). Thought I would just go on Saturday instead, but no - they kept us on the plane for a while trying to decide what to do. Yes, it's so enjoyable to continue sitting on the cramped plane while you're waiting. Finally they decided to try it again! And we made it here, but much too late to catch any connections. And they still didn't give us any free snacks the second time around!
So, stuck in the airport at midnight. Just a few hours until I leave right? Well, no, that would be more like over 12 hours! That's the first flight out to where I'm going! At least it's a decent size airport and very brightly lit in the main terminal. And hey, there are restaurants open! Oh, I mean restaurant - Burger King. Fast food has been eaten and a large soda consumed, thank you.
I played on my laptop until the battery died earlier and read a couple of magazines. Then I wandered around looking for outlets that weren't too isolated. Finally found one with no chair nearby so I'm hanging out on the floor for a while (as are many other stranded travelers). BUT, I must look important sitting on the floor with my laptop 'cause I've already been asked for assistance by other travelers - LOL. Laptop usage while sitting in uncomfortable positions must have a certain air of authority.
I guess this is my chance to catch up on all the blog posts in my reader and/or work on some future blog posts. And I may or may not wander around again when my behind goes numb. I am in view of a coffee place that is closed. I will know exactly when it opens and I will be an eager customer!! Did I mention that I am too paranoid to go to sleep in a public place like this? I just know somebody would steal my stuff or videotape me snoring.
Hey, I only have 9 hours left now! Look at the time just fly...
Have a wonderful Saturday! I know I will make it to my destination (my Dad's place) eventually. Then I will need to sleep! Then again, I wonder if Dad might steal my stuff or videotape me snoring. Hmmm...
Is your weekend as exciting as mine??
