Haven’t been blogging because I’ve been really busy, between holidays and some big work deadlines.
But listening to Nick Lowe’s “Christmas at the Airport” just now (yeah, I’m still listening to such, here on the 6th day of Christmas), I thought I’d give a sample of what I’ve been doing instead of writing in this forum.
Last night, my wife and I drove to Myrtle Beach to send my youngest daughter up to Boston to visit a friend for a few days. She had found a bargain on the Web, and it involved flying from MB.
The flight was for 10:32 p.m. They ended up not boarding until almost 12:30 a.m. So we hung out at the airport for a time, part of which we filled by running through my daughter’s homemade Thai flash cards. (She’s heading off to the Peace Corps in a couple of weeks.)
During lulls in language study, I also Tweeted the following. Since a couple of them got some reTweets, I share:
Myrtle Beach airport more spacious-seeming than expected…
When a flight’s departure is delayed 2 hours, airline should foot open tab in bar for passengers. If the airport HAS a bar…
2 girls in MB airport killing time giving each other rides in luggage cart. Elder girl says, “Let’s do this until they yell at us…”
Airline woman who told us flight was delayed has stopped the girls having fun with luggage cart. Madame Buzzkill…
When your late-night flight is delayed two hours, this sign in the airport seems particularly apropos… pic.twitter.com/2g0fsBrJHz
