You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em

June 23, 2008

If you ever have a friend who really wants to have a child and you don’t think they’re ready make them watch episode after episode of John and Kate + 8. I know it’s children in excess, but just watching it stresses me out. It’s like having a daycare 24/7 and not getting paid for it. It also seems to me that John and Kate can’t stand each other. Good birth control in my opinion.

Today I’m in Grand Rapids. Last night was Augusta. Yes, it’s as thrilling as it sounds. I’m back on the 50 which hasn’t been terrible, but I’m realizing that I work better when I have someone else to work with. I’ve been really tired, which hasn’t helped me be a super fun fantastic flight attendant. Tomorrow I have five legs. Then I go to my car, dump my work clothes, get my play clothes, and fly to Buenos Aires. Right now I’m still too busy and tired and anxious about getting both Roya and I in first class to be excited. Okay, maybe I am a little bit.

This past week was a whirlwind. I worked a lot, had recurrent training, saw lots of out of town friends, had a real date, and worked some more. Adri and Mo were in town from MA so we went to the laser show at Stone Mountain. I might just be a big party pooper, but I think it’s kind of cheesy. I don’t like cartoons either though, so that might be part of the problem. It was still lots of good fun seeing everyone and the weather was perfect for being out under the sky. Jamie and Susan also both wandered in from their respective hick states to add to the festiviti. We crashed Adri’s house on Friday night and had a 1477 and apartment family gathering.

I had a passenger yesterday who has flown over 2 million miles on Delta since the early 90s. He told me he’s been in planes that have been struck by lightning 3 times. I was shocked and amazed. Shocked cause I’ve known people who’ve been struck once, but never three times. Amazed cause I have been curious what happens and obviously he wasn’t damaged or killed.

Today I ran again. I was really on a roll for a while there. Then the running got harder and the weather got hotter. I’ve really flaked out. Now I finally finished week 6. It’s only taken me a month. It was a 5 minute warm up with a 25 minute run. That’s the longest I’ve run, without stopping, in a long time. Maybe ever. I ran super slow, but I finished it, and now I can at least move on to week 7.

My goal now is to be asleep by 8 or so. Now What Not To Wear is on so I’m not going insane. I’m going to work on a budget – finally. I think that realistically I can have my debt paid off by the beginning of December. Now that the end is in sight it makes me more motivated to do it (hence the microwave meal I just ate).

Hopefully next time I write it will be from about 5000 miles away.

Oh yeah, the concert I worked Saturday night was Kenny Rogers. There were some ladies there who had been to over 1000 KR concerts! It was really sad. I can’t imagine who has nothing better to do with their lives than go to his concerts. It was extremely cheesy and his super hot wife came up on the stage with his twin 3 year old boys and they sang some rap song… I can’t believe people paid lots of money for that. After the amazing pre-concert that Jamie and Jonathan put on Kenny just didn’t impress me :-).
