I did it to myself…

November 21st, 2007 · No Comments

Once again, I find myself having to commute on the busiest travel day of the year. In about an hour and a half, I’ll be leaving my house for Burbank Airport, where I’ll undoubtedly have to wade my way through the surly throng towards an oversold airplane to attempt travel to my domicile where I’ll begin a trip early tomorrow morning.

I believe I could have held a line of flying with Thanksgiving Day off. And after realizing what the result of my schedule bid for November was, I realized that I must have made a mistake with my bid. Sure enough, after reviewing the lines I’d selected, I discovered that I accidentally left the line of flying I was awarded in my bids as one of my top five choices, instead of relegating it to the bottom of my preferences with lines of flying similar to this one.

At least I know now that it’s easy for a guy in the top 50% of seniority-in-domicile to get a line of flying that works over the Thanksgiving break.

I’ll just have to be more careful next year.

As for tomorrow (Thanksgiving Day), I’ll be in Ontario by about noon. I think I’ll go see a movie and find someplace that’s still open to have a nice dinner. Maybe I’ll hang around the hotel pool and work on getting my gallery page and this blog looking the way I want them to.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I’m still slowly working through this WordPress template to get my blog looking the way I want it to. Missing are links to my flickr page (where I upload most of the half-way-good pictures I take) and some of the other things I had on the right side-bar of the old blog page. They’ll get moved here eventually.

As if you’re all sitting by your computers waiting for them to appear, anyhow.
