And listening to Zappa while waiting for a flight and looking at all the people and writing about it is interesting.
Consider this another open thread.
*** Update ***
I made it to Orlando with no problems. It turns out my traveling mate is on a watch list, so that slowed us down a bit (the TSA agent told us that he should register for future flights using his middle name in the future to avoid such inconveniences. Take that, Osama!). I am also proud to report that with a wireless internet connection, a cell phone, and an Ipod, all modern conveniences designed to help us keep in touch with people, I managed to ignore everyone around me for the bulk of the trip. I call that a win.
Things did get sketchy on the flight, though, when a lack of sleep, a fresh cup of black death coffee, and an unfortunate Ipod shuffle (Talking Heads- Swamp into Les Claypool into Rage Against The Machine) made me feel all Patrick Bateman for a minute or two, but other than that, everything was uneventful.
