travel notes & a new level of hell

there were some especially irritating high school kids in th terminal before my flight to nyc and then they got on the plane with me. turns out they are on a class trip so I found myself stuck on an airplane with 22 high school drama majors heading to nyc. it was as loud as a school bus on the plane when everyone got on. then, they clapped as the plane took off (and sang some showtunes). I put my headphones on and didn't hear them again until we landed. they clapped again and sang some more b'way. give me a break this is why i left theatre school. ugh when we touched down in nyc i was so happy- the nyc skyline out my window. then, i got to ground transportation and discovered that the 3:30 shuttle was cancelled. there were people yelling at the ground transportation woman- tourists who didn't known they weren't on manhatten island already. it was oppressively hot and the air was wonderfully rank with that special nyc smell (exhaust, tar, cigarette smoke etc...) the shuttle ride (when it arrived 2 hours later) initially made me smile and then made me car sick (the roads are so halariously bad). you've got to love the bumpy, dirty roads strewn with blown out tires and the stop and go traffic- ahhh queens... then, my mom and i drove 6 hours to Maine. I drove the last 3 or so. today i am going to see my aunt and what she creeply calls her "short leg". and to start her on some knitting. Maryann is talking about lunch at Fat Boy tomorrow. Now I am happy.
