open mouth, insert snuggie.

April 16, 2009

For the second time in my life I just thought “a snuggie would be good right now.” I’m not sure how that makes me feel. I don’t want one, but they definitely are on to something. Don’t you hate it when you’re typing in a cold room and the blanket keeps falling off your arms?

I survived my dayline Monday (thanks to a airport scavenger hunt Trish made for me), but the weather made flying miserable. Now I’m in Albany, NY on day two of a four day. It’s been a good trip so far. I’d already flown with the flight attendant and first officer which helps. Last night we were in Canton, OH and ended up meeting an odd man who parted his hair in the middle, wore a black suit with a white cowboy style dress shirt (black piping on the seams), and the typical flag/eagle tie and runs threading shops and a lady who is a masseuse and bought an adult daycare franchise in Lawrenceville. Our captain is the kind of guy that gives pilots a bad reputation. (Whatever comes into your mind is probably true.) He is nice enough, though, and gave everyone dollars and made us all take turns picking songs on the jukebox.

Two of the three guys I’m working with don’t seem to have their filters installed correctly. When we are in public I am constantly frightened by what is going to come out of their mouths next. Yesterday one was loudly hoping for the demise of one of our sister connection carriers to another person on the train with us because he “hates them so much”. Today we had a really awkward ride to the airport. An elderly gentleman was in the van with us and asked what a word meant. It is a word that has been used lately in reference to taxes, but has an alternate sexual definition that a lot of people are unaware of. Instead of just saying that is was something sexual, he (being the helpful man he is) described what he thought it was in detail. At least he used the proper anatomical words.

Welcome to my life.

Within the last two weeks I’ve had two of the most glorious nights of sleep that I can ever remember. Both times I took allergy medicine and drank herb tea. I’m very curious whether it was one of them or the combination. I’m on my third cup of tea in the last few hours and drug free so maybe I’ll find out in the morning.
