In Los Angeles – BEA Here I Come


Arrived in Los Angeles.  Had a relatively painless trip, but I witnessed three things that terrified and mystified me.

1.     I stopped at FedEx this morning on the way to the airport and watched in amazement while a UPS driver walked in the building and delivered a package to someone who works at FedEx.  I think this is one of the signs of the apocalypse. 

2.     I almost walked off the plane in Charleston this morning when an International soccer team boarded.  My history of International soccer teams and air travel is sketchy, but I’m under the impression they crash in the mountains a lot and eat each other.  My one saving grace is there aren’t any mountains between Charleston and Atlanta. 

3.     Some guy on the flight from Atlanta to LA stole my seat.  When I pointed out that ‘B’ (my seat) was the aisle seat, he said “No it isn’t.”  I showed him the diagram and he was unfazed.  When I said “Yeah,  I really think the aisle is ‘B’” he wasn’t moved.  I was stunned and shocked at the lengths to which he denied reality.  I sat next to the window and had a very awkward 4 ½ hour flight.   All I could think was we were going to crash and everyone was going to think I was that jerkhole because he was sitting in 30’B’ – MY SEAT! 

On a less frightening note, I finished my rewrites and my new outline.  Finished until I get more editorial suggestions back that is. 

BTW – I forogt to bring a book so I picked up Twilight by Stephanie Meyer in the airport.  Vampire romance is not my thing, but I am enjoying it so far.
