The Adventure Begins...

Wow!  After that maudlin intro down there I be you're just itching to check in on my Inaugural Travel Fantasia over the next few days.  It's going to be deep, man.  

Caught the red eye out and actually slept some on the plane!  I was next to a woman traveling to NYC w/ her son who had an audition at Julliard.  He plays the bassoon.  I used to play the bassoon, so we had ooodles to discuss.  

She was nice, except for her desire to discuss airline catastrophes during takeoff and landing.  She went for the obvious Hudson River plane ditch during takeoff, but during the landing at JFK, she actually went for the full 9/11 discussion.  I'm not particularly superstitious when it comes to flying, but I did worry about being overheard by a sensitive air marshall and being dragged off for questioning.

Wow, even I have more sense/tact than to discuss 9/11 while my plane is landing in NYC. Crazy!

And this Friday when you come to my place? Bring basoon-playing photos. ;)
