Weirdly, my post about how I was gonna be gone for a minute didn’t seem to register – so it’s out there now…but it wasn’t then [3.3.08 – when I actually wrote it]. (So I
postpre-dated it.) Anyway, I’m back. Not all the way [I’m not at my house], but I’m back in EST…(just in time to ‘spring forward’).
I flew from Podunk to ATL to NOLA and back this week, and the flights to and from Podunk were crappy and crappier. Last night was the first time I ever felt like I might throw up on a plane. I’ve never even felt that way on a roller coaster [and I love roller coasters — as long as they don’t bang my head back and forth like this one ride at 6 Flags (I can’t remember the name of it)]. The turbulence was the worst I’ve ever experienced, though the oxygen masks didn’t fall, so I wasn’t actually worried – just nauseous.
This being my first foray in New Orleans, I was excited to go, and I have to say that I had a good time. People were friendly, the town has some beautiful areas, and all-in-all I’d like to go back. I barely had time to really do any site-seeing [should that be sight-seeing?], but what I saw was cool.
I’ve got a lot rolling around in my head, and I’ll be back to posting more regularly after my birthday. [woo. 2 days!]
