Gearing Up

I can't believe it's already the end of October. And Cyn has not-too-stealthily reminded me to write an entry every day for November. I'm currently on a plane to Baltimore for training. There's a big project that will start in November. And all the other projects in the pipeline that I so needed in October seems to be coming to fruition in November as well. So in hindsight, entering NaBloPoMo may not be the best idea in the world. But it's too late now and I've already committed. All I can say is that I'll try my best.

Luckily, I already have a number of entries written down by hand. And if nothing else, NaBlo will make me at least type those up for your perusing pleasure. I'm also desparately scrounging for topics to write about, but Chris reminded me that I'll have plenty of time. Especially since I've got a few already written up. And funnily enough, I found an old journal entry from December's Holidailies that I'd forgotten to post. So I guess if I really don't have anything to write about, I'll go ahead and post that one.

As I'm typing this, I am sitting in the window seat, leaning towards the window as these seats are incredibly narrow. The man sitting next to me doesn't even have truly wide shoulders and yet I feel quite crammed into my seat. But at least Southwest seems to have more legroom than American Airlines or Continental. Both those seats seem to be both narrow and shallow, making you feel like a sardine. The flight is only two hours though, so I won't feel all smooshed for too long.

We also haven't gotten our drinks yet. I don't have room for my laptop and a drink, so at some point, I'll have to turn this off in order to have somewhere to put my drink. For some reason, I like to drink bloody mary mix on the planes. Once, on a east-west crossing, the stewardess told me that if I drink too many, my feet will swell. Which it did. So a warning to all y'all, don't drink two cans on a plane. You'll get all bloaty.

In any case, I won't be back in Florida until about 10:00pm. So you won't be hearing from me until November starts! Now what I need from all of you is to comment and comment often!!
