It has been confirmed…

June 2, 2006

So, in case there was any question about my queen of the world status, it is official. I changed my spark plugs. Unfortunately though, I can’t say that my car runs like a Ferrari now, or even a 1992 Honda Civic. It’s still running just as bad as before. I changed one of the spark plugs yesterday and got to the second one and couldn’t get it unscrewed. I decided to stop trying before I broke something on the car or on myself. Today I decided to try it again since my car seems to be running worse. I got to the second one and realized I had been tightening it. No wonder it wouldn’t come undone. I was even saying “righty tighty, lefty loosey.” I think it was the heat. So now they’re all changed and my car still sounds like it’s about to fall over and die. (Or just die so I don’t think cars can really fall over.)

I had a very uneventful overnight in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA. I read an entire book (The Red Tent). First while we were waiting for the FO (First Officer/Co-pilot), then on the nearly 2 hour flight, then while I was in bed, and finished it on the way back this morning cause I dead-headed back (I didn’t work the flight, just rode while another flight attendant worked. Not sure why. Has to do with crew positioning or something. Happens a lot at the beginning of the month when the new schedule starts.) The book was really interesting. I’m assuming it was all made up even though it’s based on real Biblical people. It was interesting to read about their customs and ways, especially from a woman’s point of view.

The craziness of people never ceases to amaze me. Yesterday on the bus going into work I listened to a lady tell how a teenage girl passenger had thrown the passenger safety information card at the flight attendant, told her the flight attendant was the one who needed to read it, and said what are you going to do? You can’t kick me off the flight. We paid $300 for these tickets. Word to the wise, never throw something at a flight attendant or tell them what they can’t do. The girl’s parents just sat there. They told the captian who turned around on the active taxiway and went back to the gate where he dropped her and her parents off. What makes people think they can act like that??

I talked to a couple on the flight last night. She said she liked my hair so we talked about that for a while. Then got around to them telling me how 3 years ago she had leukemia, a particularly rare type. At one point she was in a coma for a month and had a 5% chance of living. She went through 2 years of chemo as well. Her husband said she was alive today because of the power of prayer. It was really nice to talk to them. Very uplifting. Nice change from the crazy grouchy people we get sometimes.

I should probably go to sleep since I have to do an Albany, NY nap tonight. It’s going to suck.
