Off I go again. Conference. And I don’t have to speak. Which I can just take it in, as Killick would put it.
Paco de Lucia is being played. Nice not to have shapeless Muzak.
Happily, I have a layover which will neither force me to rush nor get bored. I’ve started to avoid really short layovers. Given the on-time/late records of airlines, it’s not worth the minutes saved on the while trip to have the worry of making a connection.
Briefly… too briefly… in my horribly suffering native place.
Finally some breakfast, if that word could apply to this thing. Best option at the moment.
Phase 2. We have been delayed at couple times, but I think we won’t be in too late.
It’s a long flight, but not like the trans-pond slogs.
In flight Internet isn’t great but it isn’t nothing.
A glimpse at my old stomping ground, catching the edge of where I grew up.
People, there is little glamorous or comfy about travel. Here is a good example and a reason why I carry antiseptic wipes and packs of Wet Ones when I fly.
Barbarian neighbors are a constant annoyance. Rude. Don’t be this jerk when you travel.
And the rude jerk behind me keeps putting her foot on the back of my arm rest. Creepy.
Hey! MORONS! You are NOT in your own living room!
As I end my rant I turn my attention
to interesting geography.
And now I now just where we are.
Confirmed by map.
And the mountains are getting closer.
And I just finished reading Disinformation. What a nightmarishly illuminating book. It answers lots of questions I had about the Left, including the catholic Left, how they work, what they want.
We lost Internet for a while… grrr.
And we are now I a holding pattern over the mountains.
“But Father! But Father!”, you are surely saying. “What’s the delay?”
Obama has given me another reason to dislike him. We are waiting for him to leave so that we can land. I am consoled that I won’t be in the same city as he, nor breathe the same air. Alas, your planet’s yellow Sun will be the same.
All this turning and banking gives us some nice views.
I am at an advance screening of the new Jim Caviezel film, to be released on 22 August (anniversary of the Battle of Bosworth Field). When The Game Stands Tall.
