travel tidbits

- I had 4 flights in 3 days (which is not my personal best).
- Only one had what I deem a good landing.
- Two had a bit of a skid (that's comforting) and one kind of just slammed into the ground.
- I like to critique the landings and wish the powers-that-be would give me Olympic (or Dancing with the Stars)-type numbers to hold up.
- I get excited and surprised when my checked luggage is the first bag to come out.
- I dislike valet parking at hotels solely because they take my keys and I forget what car I was driving.
- For the first time since the weird liquid rules started, I tried to smuggle a bottle of water through security. On accident.
- I got a little misty watching some people get greeted at the airport.
- If I ever have a significant other, please tell him that I would appreciate an occasional (maybe twice a year) surprise greeting at the airport.
- I decided that sometimes all I need to put a smile on my face is a relatively cute boy talking with an accent.
- Knoxville was quite pretty with real fall color.
- When my computer gets fixed I'll definitely post pics of that.
- The nice coordinator at the site gave us PB&J sandwiches for lunch.
- For the first time ever on a Continental flight, the snack later that day was PB&J and crackers.
- Between flights I managed to schedule a haircut (for today) and the house inspection (for tomorrow).

Sounds like things are rolling along! Or skidding along....hopefully not just slamming into the ground.....

I like a cute boy with an accent, myself! ;-)

I like to critique landings as well. Rarely do I have a good one. The best ones are in the small jets I take to Amarillo....guess it's easier to bring in for a soft landing if the plane isn't massive.

PB&J on the PLANE? That's just crazy talk.

If you want to see some crazy landings, go here:

or, this one is particularly bad:

I find west texas landings to either be the best ever, or on an older southwest plane in really high wind (which west texas has lots of) where the pilot literally sticks the plane into the groud

I like to jump out of the planes before they land.

I just don't get on planes - then I don't have to worry about it.

What a nice post!

I agree with tigger. You sound very...content - or, at least, not discontent with things the past few days. I'm glad.
