Yesterday when we should have been landing, we were circling the Dallas airport, because of Weather. We circled for a good half hour before the pilot announced that we’d be landing. In Oklahoma City.
In Oklahoma we got gas, and I saw a big UPS plane unloading thousands and thousands of boxes of shoes that Susan ordered online. I was going to get a photo, but it was too dark. We finally got back in the air, but the Dallas airport closed again, so we circled it for another half hour. All in all, what was going to be a 3 hour 25 minute flight turned into a 7 hour flight. My brother and his fiancee were waiting for me (mostly in the rental car) for over 5 hours, watching the storm.
It wouldn’t have been so bad if I could have used the airline power adapter I bought for my MacBook, but there was no plug. Not even an earphone jack on the seat handle for me to try and cram it into. Then, my ipod died. Not ran out of batteries but D I E D. It works, but won’t hold a charge anymore.
I watched I heart Huckabees, then listened to music until the laptop ran down. Kristen Hersh has a song that goes, "Holy shit, I’d rather be on the ground than flying." That’s me.
I’m going to drag my camera everywhere I go, so I’ll be back next time I find internet access.
