All Day

It feels like I've been in airports all day long. I left the house at 4:15am this morning, not sure I had my cell phone, but in a hurry to get to the airport for a 6:05am flight. Through Houston, arrive a little after 1 in Orlando. Eat, work a bit, waiting for a fellow Red Gate employee, Rachel, to arrive at 3:15. I get about an hour of work done before the battery dies. Don't feel like searching out power now.

There are two flights arriving then, one a BA, one Virgin, both baggage claims on opposite sides of the hotel. Virgin gets delayed, so I go get my car organized, then walk to the BA baggage claim. The lady there tells me it will take about 45 minutes to get through customs. Great, I sit around waiting, eventually about 4:15 I realize she's not on this flight. What to do? The Virgin is delayed until 5:00 and for all I know she's not on it. And they won't be out until close to 6.

I decide to hit the hotel, run, and then come back and get her. I get to the car and realize I don't have my contract. No idea what happened, but I lock my bags in and walk back to get a new copy. That kills time until 4:55 and I decide that I should just wait.

So I do, and she's through quickly, paging me about 5:30 and we head to the hotel.

Slow through traffic, but we get here and I just finished a quick run. Now time for dinner.
