return of the wombat

First off, apologies to RS and P for not starting earlier this morning. I should have known that 495 and 28 would have been screwed up at that hour.

Secondly, the flight was okay except that TSA confiscated my Right Guard (can was TOO BIG, I totally forgot about the aerosol restrictions) and the people in the row behind me let their rotten little kid kick the shit out of my seat and stick his grabby little hands through the seat gaps. No blood, no foul, not even serious annoyance, really, but it was irritating and reminded me why I hate 90% of other peoples' children: their parents are lazy, indulgent fucks.
Sun Country is okay by me; kind of like an upscale version of Southwest, where what you get is a seat, a drink, and a snack; everything else is extra, and that includes headsets and pillows. The snack was a nice, warm ciabatta turkey & cheese sandwich, and it was pretty good. This is the second time I've flown Sun Country, and while it's no Lufthansa, it's pretty good especially at the price.

So here I am at the Thunderbird, down the hall from where I lingered for a couple of weeks last summer waiting for my 401k distribution to show up.
It's like I never left. For now, I need to head out, replace my shoes, and get hold of stuckintraffik. In that order.

Hey, what's your cell #? We gotta make arrangements for when (unless you don't mind me just droppin' by the hotel or whatever).

Just email or aim it to me obviously.

Oh, also, uh, check the GF forums. Hella drama.

So much so, I can't stay connected - every time I change pages I have to relog. It's tasty drama, but after the Threadnought and the Remd!ck dramabomb I don't know that it rates even a 5/10.

BTW, check your voice mail. I remembered I can't call a long distance number with this phone >.>

Got it covered, check your inbox.

EDIT: ZOMG. I spoke *way* too soon. Oh God. Oh God. *claws at eyes*

Good to be back. In some ways, the Thunderbird is like a home away from home for me; I just wish they hadn't gotten rid of all the stuffed animals and the big Indian out front. We never did get a fuku for him.

I'm still unclear on why you were on 495 *or* 28... you were coming from Alexandria, heading to far northeastern Loudoun County (during rush hour no less). George Washington Parkway - have you heard of it? GW all the way to the beltway, 1/2 mile on a ramp to Georgetown Pike, all the way to 7. Works great, and almost all against traffic. Once you get on the Beltway or 28, there is no "against traffic"; it is the traffic that is against *you*. :-P

Anyway, my meeting and workout ended up going OK... enjoy the trip!

Yes, but in order to reach the Parkway, I either have to go east on Duke Street, which is pretty bad during the morning crush, or northeast on 395 - and that's even worse. What I originally planned was to take 395 to the Fairfax County Parkway, but I chickened out and went for the direct route, which actually worked kind of okay until I got up to 66.
