"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

If you're going to SF...

Ok, I'm not one for wearing flowers in my hair, but I was sorely tempted. I loved being in San Francisco, but the travel to and fro was HORRID. For anyone who is thinking of going on a trip, please beware of Spirit Airlines. Yes, it's cheap. OK. But how cheap? The seats BARELY recline, I had difficulty with crossing my legs due to lack of leg space (I'm 5'3), and they will only serve you water. You want a soda? Sure. That's $1. Want a bag of combos? The small ones that hold about 10 combos? That'll be $4. We had a lay over in Detroit, but were asked to stay on the same plane to help speed up the process. My group of travelers (3 others) were hungry, so I jumped off the plane to get us snacks. Good thing, b/c when I got back, we found out we were supposed to PAY for snacks. Plus, my lower back is still in a bit o pain from being so uncomfortable for such long periods of time.

Ok. enough beeyatching. I have some pics of things, and I'll share those later. I did manage to spend a little bit of time with Cristina. She picked me up so we could enjoy some yummy dim sum and catch up. Unfortunately, due to SCHOOL STUFF, I couldn't hang out overly much, and missed out on seeing all the LYS in SF that she wanted to show me. Stupid school. Always getting in the way of me having a life.

Since I'm too tired to deal with photos, I'll do the meme. Stolen from Carrie (who not only shares my first initial, but also the lack of patience).

I am getting back from vacation, but I am stealing this one inspired from my favorite game.

Cool! I was hideously stumped on the Street name for longer than I will admit.

At least the weather was nice while you were here! And Spirit Airlines is going on my Do Not Fly list too. I got stuck on a United plane for 10 hours cursing myself for not upgrading.

I like the meme!

Yuck, I hate long and uncomfortable plane rides. I hope you find some time to relax and feel better.

Ahh yes, cheap airlines, they are a bit of an adventure. My mother-in-law uses one, and at the end of the flight they tell you how to prepare your chair for the next person.
