one. we got home at 11 pm last night (i have never been so grateful for my own insistence on making the bed with fresh, crisp sheets before leaving on a trip) and we were both back at work at 9 am this morning. not totally happy campers. we did, however, go to an early breakfast at our favorite diner and had our favorite, incredibly tall waitress. score. there is no food in our house except some withered carrots, hence the trip to the diner. note to self - buy food on the way home tonight. or at least remember to call ahead and order something for dinner.
two. i managed to convince myself that my seatmate was planning to blow up the plane on my flight from newark to lax. i had already been in the air for 11 hours at this point, so i wasn't exactly at my peak. spent 20 minutes debating telling someone as we idled on the runway, finally decided i could take care of it myself, spent another 20 minutes deciding on the best course of action (verdict - swift, hopefully disabling blow to the windpipe, call for reinforcements), then fell asleep on the job, due to exhaustion. turns out he was just a really, really weird guy who likes to travel with multiple laptop chargers and many old yogurt containers full of hippie food. felt guilty for wrongly suspecting a socially awkward, overly sweaty person who probably gets enough grief in life. felt slightly better finding out later that d had made the same call and also come up with a contingency plan although he was hampered by the fact that i was sitting in the middle. decided that the airport security obsession has finally broken me, despite my best efforts to stay above it.
three. i have over 1000 blog posts in my google reader and hundreds of photos on my camera. major backlog. oh, and my real work. the stuff i actually get paid to do. don't expect to see anything substantial from me anytime soon.
four. true blood season premiere is waiting for me on the dvr. we considered staying up last night to watch it, but some sort of sanity won out and we went to bed like good little worker bees. now it is killing me. please tell me it was good. and don't tell me anything else. also, if you aren't already watching it, i recommend it highly. and i was violently opposed to the whole concept for at least a year when it first came out. not a vampire fan. at. all.
