YAY!! I'm home!! :D  
It was amazing in itself that I was able to wake up this morning in time to make it to the airport for my 7am flight... my track record (as you all well know) with actually getting ON my flights that are returning home is not very good. :P I set the hotel alarm for 3:30 am, asked for a wake up call at 3:45 am, but even then I must've been SO paranoid about oversleeping that I got up almost every hour... :P When I reached the airport I was exhausted!! Thank goodness I was actually able to get some sleep on the plane. :)

Speaking of which,... when did airlines start charging money for blankets and pillows? $9.95??? Seriously, I've always said that all an airline needs to do is take me from point A to point B, they don't need to feed me, offer me anything to drink... but you'd think basic things like airline blankets and pillows would come with the airfare! Next they're going to charge me extra to use the overhead compartment. :P

In any case, I'm home and I've been snuggling with the fuzzy dog for the past few hours before I unpack all my things. I tried to tell her that she's in 3rd place in the Savory Dog Treat contest, but she doesn't seem too impressed. That's the good thing about Sydney, she's not going to let this go to her head. ;)

Saw two showings of "Anything Goes" yesterday and they were wonderful. Kevin was stronger in the matinee than the evening show... which was totally understandable since all he must've been thinking about was how he wanted to spend quality time with Julie before she left this morning. There were so many people waiting to see Kevin at the stage door and I knew all he wanted to do was go home... I didn't want to hold him up so I just said a quick good-bye and wished Julie a safe trip, and then headed back to my hotel.

I did happen to see Brian Brigham (Danny in the production of GREASE that Bets did in Fullerton) waiting at the stage door with some of his friends and for whatever reason, I was brave enough to introduce myself to him. He recognized me and said, "Oh yeah, from MySpace!" :) He was very sweet and, even in person, looked, acted like, and reminded me SO totally of Chad Brannon! Yeow!

Well, I'm off to take a nap with my fuzzy dog. :) Hope you're all having a nice Monday! Big *HUGS*

9.95??? Why do they price it like that? Do they think we don't know it is ten dollars...just shy a nickel?
What a dumb deal.
You need a blow-up pillow and a sweater to cover you. Darn airlines.
Do they still offer a warm wash cloth before arrival?

I know -- I thought it was so ridiculous! And I'm not even sure if it was $9.95 for the set or for each! :[ No warm cloth anymore. :( Aloha used to serve freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on their flights right before landing... I wonder if they still do that.

Welcome back, Sheri! :)

And Sydney, you know while I think that she was pleased to hear about the 3rd place I never thought that she would let this go to her head. She simply knows that she, it doesn't matter which way this contest may end, is a wonderful and lovable dog. And I completely agree with her. :)

Hope you found some rest. I, by the way, would have been paranoid about oversleeping too. Big *hugs* to you!

Thanks, Sabine!! :) And Sydney actually looked rather bored when I told her she'd made it to the final round of the contest. ;) I guess she isn't impressed by fame. ;)

Thankfully my flight got in early enough yesterday that I was able to rest up and relax before going back to work today. :)

Hope you're having a nice week! Big *HUGS* to you!!

Glad to hear you got home safe!

The last flight on Air Canada that we went on, they were charging for blankets and pillows. I was quite appalled. I thought those were just basic comfort things. It's ridiculous!
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on July 19th, 2006 08:27 am (UTC)
Thanks Karen!! :) Wow -- Air Canada too? I was shocked when they made that announcement because the blankets and pillows were free on the way over! :[
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: (dogs) jack and jillaudienceawaits on July 19th, 2006 02:31 am (UTC)
9.95?!?! That is RIDICULOUS! I think on an airline here they were only $2, which isn't too awful. But ten dollars? That is so wrong!

Poor Sydney, she deserves to be higher up - she's so sweet.

I'm glad you got home ok and had a nice trip, Sheri! :)

It is ridiculous!! And they made the cabin SO cold, and as I sat there shivering I actually contemplated buying a blanket. :P How wrong is that??

And thanks for supporting Sydney, Gill! The contest actually ends on the 24th... only a few more days to vote... she won't catch up Jake, but I really hope she makes it to second place. :)

Thanks so much for your comment, Gill! *HUGS*
