From there to here

  • Economy class was full, so I sat in the premium economy section - all the same service but with MUCH comfier seats. Leg room. Leg support. A comfortable chair means that I feel in better shape after this flight than most.

  • One by one, the cars on busy Dixon Rd. stopped to let a family of geese, with four half-grown goslings, cross the road.

  • Checking in at Anime North is so much more pleasant when the line consists of all of two people. Apparently the line was far longer earlier in the evening, and will certainly be wrapping around the block at various points during tomorrow afternoon. Despite conflicting with Anime Boston and Media West (and Plokta.con pi) this weekend, the number of attendees continue to grow. This year, it's forecast for around 12,000 people.

  • Both books I read on the plane feature explanations of pubs, rural English villages, romance, and people pretending to be people they're not. Only one of them is a fantasy novel.

Yay for the premium economy section!

I'm not surprised that only one is a fantasy novel--my head went immediately to "mystery novel," since I'm an M.C.Beaton fan. Have you read any of her novels?

You have to tell me what books you read! HAVE TO! Lest I die. ;-)

I haven't read any Beaton books.

Don't die! Zorro would hate me. They're both fluff, but that's about all I can handle on airplanes. Sophie Kinsella, The Undomestic Goddess. Mercedes Lackey, Phoenex and Ashes.

Also, both books are about people who spend most of the time cooking and cleaning.

Last year, when I was flying all over the place (one actual conference that I wanted to go to, AHA for interviewing, and two (three?) campus interviews), I got upgraded FOUR times! Soooooo very cool. Especially the one that was on a brand-new 767. Oh! and the one that was only about 2 hours, but First CLass! I also got moved to business class on a transatlantic flight once ...

Good flight karma rocks! I will keep my fingers crossed that it continues for you for the rest of your trip!

Wow! I've never been upgraded in any other way before. The one time I flew business class was on local flights, where it's wasted, and flew it because they were the cheapest tickets available at the time. Really.
