grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

Knit Wit meets George Bush Intercontinental Airport

I waited too long to get my ticket for the SWS meeting in Miami, Florida on the 27th. I was waiting for my loan check to come in, and of coure, the day the loan check came in, ticket prices went from being about $230 to being about $370. So, I looked around and found an unpublished cheaper airfare for $270. The meeting will reimburse me up to $300 so basically I am travelling for free. But, here is the hitch. On the way home from Miami, I leave at 6am which means I probably won't sleep at all the night before. Saturday night is the night to go out and eat and drink, which I will want to do. No problem, though, I'll sleep on the plane. And I'll have plenty of planes to sleep on on the way home. I fly from Miami to George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. I've never been to Texas. I've never been anywhere near Texas. I've also never been in a building named after a Bush family member. I'll be proudly sporting my anti-Bush button while I am there. I have a 3 hour layover in Bush's airport before I get on another plane to fly to Detroit. Detroit is my least favorite airport because they have lots of restaurants that serve nothing for vegetarian food but freakin' salads with yucky iceberg lettuce. Then, finally, I fly from Detroit to Madison. Yikes. How much more convoluted could my trip home be? Maybe they should also fly me to somewhere like Washington state before flying me back to Madison? The only bonus of all this travelling is the abundance of reading time and the many airline miles I'll wrack up.
