Random Travel Notes

Hell remains other people's children. But, thankfully, hell quieted down before we left the terminal.

Related to that, everything is better with an iPod.

I think this was the first time I've ever flown without a book... And definitely the first time I've flown with DVDs. I didn't break them out, though, I was tired and the iPod entertained me. I did, however, break out the PowerBook here to jot down a couple of notes -- the 12" is small enough that it's actually usable during a flight. Nice.

It's been almost three years since I've flown anywhere -- and things have changed a bit. Not a lot, but a bit. The crazy digital check-in thing was actually kind of nice once I got over it being different... It's probably the reason why the line was so quick, I'd guess, and that's certainly a welcome change.

Some things haven't changed -- United was over an hour late.

And that's it for now from Houston.
