Day 1

Well - Day 1 is drawing to a close. It's only about 6:30 Wendy and Rosie time, but it's much later then that my time. And since I was up Very Late last night and up early this morning - I'm ready to wind down and call it a day - while Wendy and Rosie are ready to par-tey!

Here are a few things of note so far:

Detroit airport has one ply toilet paper but the Washington airport has 2 ply - so they win when it comes to toilet paper.

I do not like taking off and landing in planes. I do not like planes. I was in the middle seat and they are so small, both people on either side of me invaded my personal space. I know it wasn't their fault - it's the compactness of the plane.

I was going to complain about this but it seems I made out better then Rosie when it came airline food. I was going to say I was offered a choice of either ONE cookie or a bag of about 10 dry roasted peanuts - I went for the peanuts. But apparently they wanted to CHARGE for a cookie on their flight.

The very oddest thing happened to me at the hotel. I was sitting outside the hotel - and a nice hotel it seems to be - when a guy came up and asked if I minded if he sat there. Men never do that to me!! It was very surreal I must say. I work at a place that's about 90% women so conversations with men are very rare in my life!! Now if this wasn't the case I wouldn't make a big deal of things, but it was so very - well - nice. We talked for quite some time and he was quite attractive

Anyway - others in the room want to use the puter so I'll say...

Kristie - over and out for Day 1 in Washington DC

LOL! You're too cute! And I shouldn't even be online right now, I still have a million things to do.

See you tomorrow!!

It's funny 'cause I LOVE take offs and landings. I love to fly, actually. Except for the space issue. I do hate the forced closeness of planes.

Anyway, glad to hear you had a safe flight!

Ugh, I hate the middle seat in plane :( It's bad, especially when you don't like flying.

And seriously, airlines have become cheap with their snack... How long was the flight?

and LOL, it's great to hear about the man... maybe you'll see him again :P
