I’m writing this blog as a tribute to the efficiency of my company. This morning I woke up at 5am in Baton Rouge so I could go to the airport, fly to Cincinatti with 12 passengers, dead head (ride) a nearly empty flight to Colombia, SC, fly 6 people back to Cinci, sit for 3hr15m and fly 40 or so minutes to Knoxville, TN. It’s good to know that they value our time and don’t want us sitting around doing nothing… If I sound bitter it’s only because I’ve worked 5 days in a row now and won’t be finished until late tomorrow night. For those of you who may say “I work 5 days in a row every week” let me just say, this is different. If I came in and worked 8 hours and went home that would be freaking fantastic. I’m not really complaining. Just stating the difference.

This trip has been good so far. I’ve hardly had any passengers which seems surprising since it’s a holiday weekend. The first 3 day trip I did was ridiculous. If it wasn’t for my crew being really fun I would have killed myself (or seriously considered it.) I don’t think we had a single flight leave on time the entire trip. Way to go [Insert my company’s name here]. I probably sound grouchy but I’m really just tired and want to go home for more than a few hours at a time. I’ve been at home 3 complete days since 8/17. Anyhoo… C’est la vie.

I wish I had something more interesting to write about but I don’t. I don’t think anything particularly grand has happened lately, and if it has I can’t remember.
I did have my brother Israel and his girlfriend on my flight from XNA to ATL on Friday. It was funny cause I couldn’t stop laughing while I was doing my announcements cause they were making faces at me, and then my dear captain made an announcement that I had been on American Idol and everyone started clapping for me. Kind of livened things up.

I sold my car last Sunday night after posting a blog about it. If you want to sell something seems to be the place to do it. I got more than I asked for it and had the cash in my hand in less than 3 hours after posting the ad. Good times.

Guess that’s all for now. Only an hour and a half left sitting here.
