Mourning the loss of my sugar snap peas

October 31, 2008

I’m back in Flinchigan. It’s not very exciting. But the room is nice, the bed is a comfy king, and they left the veggies out from the manager’s reception earlier. Contrary to what one might think, the less I work, the less I feel like working. This trip is such a nice change from last week’s though. My last flight attendant was a nightmare. I’ve worked with plenty of people who were unsocial or who were rude to passengers, but I’ve never come across someone who was friendly to everyone and at the same time so unpleasant to me. The flight attendant this week is completely opposite, and it’s so refreshing.

My work day started around 2 this afternoon with a Cleveland round trip. It’s interesting to see how cheerful people are when they’re headed home, and how grouchy they are when they’re headed to Atlanta to connect somewhere else. After Cleveland we swapped planes and had almost two hours until our next flight. It wasn’t until we got on the next plane that I realized that I’d left the bag with two apples, cottage cheese, and an unopened package of sugar snap peas on the last plane. I’m so sad. I was really looking forward to eating it. Especially the peas. They’re one of my favorite snacks on trips.

I should be sleeping. I’m in perpetual sleep debt due to.. I guess lack of sleep. When I was in San Diego Peter and I stayed up only somewhat late by CA time, but it was really late for me. Put that on top of a trip that didn’t let me sleep enough, and then a trip to Massachusetts where I didn’t sleep enough, and I’m still tired. I don’t have to get up early again until Monday though, so that’s good. I do need to make sure I get up in time to eat the free breakfast and go running in the morning. I bought new earphones today. My old ones seemed to only be playing the bottom layer of all the music. It’s really interesting to hear which songs completely disappear without the top layer. It’s also interesting to hear only the background vocals. Definitely felt like I was the lead singer when running to those. I am looking forward to trying them out, and also looking forward to pushing myself since it’s just over a week until the 10k. I’ve kind of been a slacker lately, but I can do it.

Speaking of progress I’ve made, my loan is in the triple digits and if I didn’t have to pay rent and eat for the next two weeks, I could pay it all off right now. It’s very exciting to know I’ll be finished with it so soon. Now it’s bedtime.

    I’m in over my head too with sleep debt…perhaps we should meet someday and examine our problems and give each other ideas on how to beat the red-eye devil…
