Hey ya'll. I'm back.
It's been mad crazy around here.
March 30th. Middle kid's car's transmission blew. Guess who got to drive her to work, pick her up from work, then back to where she works to switch cars with The Man so she could use his when we were on vacation? Oh, and her work is 45 minutes away. I didn't get STARTED on packing until 8pm that night. And my back was killing me from all the time spent in the driver seat. Oi.
March 31st. Up at 4am. Catch the bus at 5am. 7am arrive at airport. Airplane supposed to take off at 9:30am. Didn't take off until 10am. Still arrived in St. Louis with enough time to catch our flight to Vegas. (!) Despite that small bit of awesome, SOUTHWEST AIRLINES SUCKS BALLS. I will never fly Southwest again even if they give me free tickets for life. A) Families/couples want to sit TOGETHER. Your system of loading (A-1-30, A-31-60, B-1-30, B-31-60) might seem like a good idea, but when a couple gets loaded onto a 4 hour flight as numbers B45 and B46 they will not be able to sit together because you don't have assigned seats! All those people who are traveling alone and load beforehand all snatch up the window and aisle seats leaving only middle seats for the last people to board. Yeah, The Man and I sat 10 aisles apart for a 4 hour flight! And he had all the food! Needless to say that SUCKED. B) When you have people that have to catch a connecting flight within 30 minutes of landing, it would be cool if you would could make an announcement to let them off first. We almost missed our connector flight because of the anarchy of people trying to shove over their neighbors and get off the flight as fast as humanly possible. Most of those people are just rushing to go stand at the baggage carosel and wait 30-45 minutes for their bags to show up anyway. LET US GET TO OUR DAMN FLIGHTS. Don't even tell me you didn't know we were on there or that we had the connector. You knew you bastards... You knew. C) We're grown ass adults. Think we could have an entire can of soda? Please?
That all said, we will only fly JetBlue from here on out. Movies, whole cans of soda, more snacks if we ask, thoughtfulness to let us catch connectors; TOTALLY worth the extra $.
April 1-4. Vegas! Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend was awesome! We met a lot of new awesome cool people. Saw a lot of hot-rods, tattoos and boobies. =) Bought waaaaay to much cool stuff for both ourselves and The Shop. I got a metal flake gold purse! The casinos on the other hand, not cool. The Man and I decided that Hell is sitting at a slot machine next to a decrepid old person, being forced to listen to all the bings and whistles and having to breathe in second hand smoke for all of eternity. At least there'll be beer. PBR's for $2! We were surprised that we ate pretty well out there though. TGIFriday's were more than happy to make us pasta dishes sans meat. They make a mean
