Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Aaaand, I’m back!

Sorry for the long silence. New York was too much fun to waste time online, and then yesterday was Cristian’s birthday so I couldn’t really shuff him off the way I wanted to, so as to return to you, my reader, and let you know that the triathlon was fun, and hard, and that I finished with a very slow, but respectable, time.

Sooo much to report. My flight out was a nightmare, anytime you end up landing at a different airport than the one you planned on is a bad time, the stewardess was such a bitch that the kid in the seat behind me recorded one of her bitchy rants on her cellphone and then played it back over and over – everyone sitting within earshot was giggling hysterically by the third playback. It went like this:

“It seems that some of you may be trying to call the Delta reservations line right now to try to rebook your connecting flight. While that might seem to be a good thing to do, it’s actually completely pointless. Cincinnati airport is closed. Let me repeat. Cincinnati airport is closed. No flights are going in, no flights are coming out.  The airport is closed. This means no one knows what is going to happen. No one knows if you’re going to make your connecting flight.  You very well might. Or you might miss it.  Your connecting flight could be anywhere right now. It could be stuck on the ground in Cincinnati. It could be circling the airport above the storm. It could have been diverted to another airport, like this aircraft. No one knows. No one. If you try to call Delta right now to reschedule, it will cause mass confusion. All we can do is wait. There is nothing you can do. The weather is completely beyond our control, and there is nothing you can do except wait to get to Cincinnati, and see what is happening once we’re there on the ground. You may end up spending the night in Cincinnati, we’ll try to prevent that, but we can’t make any promises, and there’s really nothing to be done except wait.”

My God, woman, I’m not asking you to be a motivational speaker but CHRIST ALMIGHTY you just traumatized the entire fucking plane.

Also, thank you little recorder girl. Your act of resistance bouyed the spirits of those of us in rows 11 – 14.

Flying with a bicycle is just as horrible and pointless as it sounds.

I was one huge bundle of nerves the entire time before the race. I think I slept a total of maybe 20 hours over the 4 nights I was in the city.

More to come.
