So this is Washington?

We're sorry, but Flight 7849 to Toronto is cancelled due to weather.
Fuckin' A.

Landed at Dulles just as a weather front was coming in. Hustled across the airport to the other terminal just in the nick of time, boarded, and then sat on the plane for a half hour as they decided what we were going to do.

De-plane, that's what we're gonna do.

Delay, delay, delay, then cancel. I'm tired, grumpy, and the ankle I sprained at Gary's lake place (details later) is swollen, bruised and sore.

Oh yay, the earliest flight they can put me on is at 3:45 pm. Quick call to the only person I know that lives in Washington, but alas, we won't be able to connect as he has no car and is a looong cab ride from the airport.

I call around, and the Hyatt Recency Reston is offering a bit of a deal for the stranded passengers.

Perfect. Quick check in, room service meal complete with frosty adult beverage (and delivered by a very cute waiter), wireless connection, ice on ankle, a last-minute lunch date with the nearby Pokerwolf, and I am a somewhat happy camper.

Still miffed I'm not at home though.


Okie was fun.

I need a new word. "fun" no longer seems to convey what I want it to. It certainly falls flat when trying to describe the Okie experience.

There you go...The Okie Experience. What esle could you call 4 days with some of the most wonderful people in the blogosphere?

A trip report (complete with incriminating photos and video *grin) will be forthcoming soon as I get home, collect myself, dig out all the technology cables I packed in the luggage I checked (DOH!), and pour myself a nice cold beer.

Gary, Carrie, Casey, Kaye, Bill (aka Beer Bitch) and Rhonda: thank you so very, very much.


By all early reports, the Gentile Conference was a success as well. I'm looking forward to reading the details after everyone suitably recovers - trust me, I know what that feels like *grin.
