LAX->SEA (Est time: 9hrs)

Somebody shoot me, please.

It's been one of those days. Got to the airport to find my Alaska flight delayed 2 hours due to late aircraft (Alaska sucks: see here). What should've been a few hour journey from LA back home to Seattle ended up taking 9 hours, including several hours waiting for a misplaced bag in a zoo of a baggage claim.

But nothing topped the cab ride home, listening to the driver tell me how liberalism is a disease and condoms are a myth (specifically, US military condoms are 65% effective - and they're the best condoms in the world). He also had a laptop in the front seat with Verizon's high speed EVDO service so he could stream Michael Savage (and had his homepage pulled up to keep up with the latest and greatest).

But whatever, it's in the past now. On a high note, the delay gave me some free time to finish reading Bringing Down The House. I opened the book on the way to Vegas, and just couldn't put it down. You've gotta check out this book. It's a quick, fun, page-turner of a read - only took about 3-4 hours to get through.

Off to unpack!
