Home, safe and sound

The guy at security in the Pensacola airport totally made fun of my pink laptop!  I took it out of the bag and put it in the bin to go through the x-ray machine, and he looked at me, raised an eyebrow, and said, “Raspberry?  Really?”  I was like, “Yeah.  What’s your point?  I’ll never grab someone’s laptop thinking it’s mine, will I?”  He agreed that I had a point, and I tried not to give him any dirty looks.  Also, I didn’t give him quite that much attitude, but that was the gist of the exchange.  🙂  I love my pink laptop!

Everyone needs to live closer (to me, anyway).  I’m not endorsing Mom’s dream of a family compound, but I would like to be within a couple of hours of everyone.

I think they just delayed my flight for an hour (out of Pensacola).  It was a little hard to understand the announcement, though.

Later: Yeah, we left Pensacola about an hour late.  Not a big deal for me, though.  I had two hours in Atlanta to waste, so cutting it back to one hour was just fine.  Got some food, read a little, got on the plane.  Anyway, you know how I was babbling the other day about how much I like to travel?  Well, that’s still true, but the trip home has a very different feel to it than the trip out.  Going home always seems to take a little too long.  It’s harder to enjoy traveling when you’re wishing you were already there.  I’m not saying this exactly right, but you probably know what I mean.  Because of course I always want to get to wherever I was going faster, too, but since it’s the beginning of the trip, I can enjoy the excitement of getting there.  Getting home is a little less exciting (the travel part) and a little more tedious.  On the other hand, it’s a beautiful day out the window on the left side of the plane, wherever it is we are right now.  Probably over southern Virginia or northern Tennessee, judging by the time.

Hey, I watched Body of Lies with Mom and Dad last night.  Not a very good movie.  If you’re thinking about seeing it, don’t waste your time unless you’re a big fan of Leonardo DiCaprio (meaning you need to see every movie he makes).  The acting was fine, but the story was disjointed.  The plot wasn’t very clear, and the ending was not satisfying.  Mom gave up on it with maybe 40 minutes to go (also, it’s WAY too long to have such a disappointing ending – more than two hours of my time is forever gone), but then, as Corey said, she’s a quitter.  🙂  Dad and I stuck it out.

I’m home and very happy to be back with John.  🙂  Yay home.

    Glad you made it home safe and sound, but I miss you. You know, we wouldn’t all have to live all the time together in a family compound. Hmmm. I’m still working on that one. Corey’s ready to buy a few acres and go self-sustaining. The economy is very, very scary.

    That is the big issue. There are dozens of places John and I could go that would be substantially cheaper and have more space to roam (’cause you know how much space I take up), but we can’t afford to sell our house. Pathetic.
