The drive to IND was very pleasant. The weather was a bit weird, the rain and sun kept switching on and off, but still, I enjoyed it. I and Lisa held hands, sang together, and talked about life and the universe.
I got on the plane going to MCI (Kansas City) but didn't get a window seat, which is a shame. I like being able to see the stuff I'm flying over. Instead I got eyecandy in the way of a cute california girl (the flight was flying through to SAN - San Diego) who had absolutely gorgeous lips. :) Sad for me, I must have been ugly..as soon as I sat down next to her she put on a blindfold. I mean normally I like girls who blindfold themselves for me, but alas...
Anyways the flight was uneventful. MCI was..a small, quiet airport. In many ways it reminds me of the FWA airport, which is shocking. I was expecting it to be bigger or ... something. I did find out quite accidentally that you can get out of the 'security' area and that you can get back! which is good, but it was unintentional. I wandered around there, took a picture of a pretty Jaguar (car) that was sitting in the airport, and then back on to my connecting flight to SEA (Seattle).
(Sorry I was so close Sheree, but yet, so far!)
The SEA flight was much longer, I got a window seat at least, but I also had 3 screaming children to contend with. Occasionally I was able to lose myself in the book I brought with me, but not always. The kids eventually kinda went to sleep? The sunset was pretty, and we were flying with the sun, so I had it for a good portion of the time! By the time we were over Washington tho, we'd lost the race with time..and I'm glad, because Seattle is a pretty city to fly over in the night. It's been a while since I've been on a plane when it was dark out, so I'd forgotten how pretty a city/the country can seem from overhead. It's like fireflies or fairies, or some abstract painter took a sparkly brush and spread gems in a lazy wispy pattern. I was enchanted just watching the lights pass beneath me while my mind wandered.
I landed at 9:30 p.m. local time which was a shame because the airport looked pretty cool to wander around in...if any of it was actually open. I met up with my lovely host for this excursion (everyone say hi to Tina!) and off we went to talk about things and most of all feed me. :) Yay Denny's breakfast in a sandwich. It was glorious.
Tomorrow I get to play with a puppy and try and get my bearings. I need to find me a job and not think about all the other things going on in my world right now. or that aren't going on. Right now I'm feeling just a tad bit weird. And I need to stop being such a needy friend. But more on that later. I'm going to go back to trying to sleep.
