i have arrived

2012-06-27 - 6:52 a.m.

Shipped some more blog writing yesterday morning on the free airport wifi. I was there rather a long time since DH had to drop me off before work, and my flight did not leave until 11:30 AM. I found an actual table near an outlet and got to work and, really, got quite a lot done.

The food is criminally bad at the New Orleans airport but I didn't care, since I'd brought some leftover meatballs. MSY-MEM-TYS was two puddle jumpers with no first class so I made use of my free drink coupons. According to the giggling FA, I got the only Woodford Reserve loaded on the first flight. Go me. I think they actually had catering for the second flight, since that FA asked me if I wanted two. No, one was enough to piss off the disapproving lady in the window seat. A plane that size should be illegal in the 21st century but at least they put me in the exit row and brought my bags out first.

Daddy is too thin, and so I suggested that we order dessert, but I suspect that I ate most of it.

Headline of the Week: Slidell dolphin is naturally aggressive and must be ignored, experts say.

Dumb-asses are apparently jumping in the lake to swim with this grumpy 500 pounds of male dolphin aggression on the hoof, and he apparently has a plan to bite/chase away all the males and screw all the females. The first part of the plan is working OK and several of Slidell's youth have been duly bitten, but females have better sense than to jump in the lake and go swimming with a young testosterone-charged male dolphin.

One of the city "leaders" in Slidell wants to showboat and spend millions to have the dolphin removed, and the other one wants the good people of Slidell to grow the eff up. Since the city of Slidell can't afford to ship dolphins around the country, common sense may win out on this occasion.
