Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Last week I spent 2 1/2 days in Texas. I babbled a little about the job and the place I'm staying.

The flight home (Friday night) was late, and almost full, but tolerable. It was nice to be home.

Less than 48 hours later, I hopped back on a plane to TX. This time, it sucked. The flight was 90 minutes late. It was hella crowded and I think the pilot may have almost killed us on the landing. He's either awful and almost killed us, or he's awesome and saved us I dunno which. Either way, here I am.

My partner in crime had already arrived, got tired of waiting around for 2 hours (since I was on a plane and couldnt call him) and left the airport. Once we landed, I called him and he came out and got me. Sorta. He got back to the airport before I even got off the plane. It took 30 minutes from landing to disembarking. Oh joy...

Then I see the rental... umm ok, it's a mustang convertible. Nice ride, but not exactly the type of car I would have shown up at a client site in. (Thank god I talked him out of the jaguar last week... *sigh*)

Then he decides to try a "new way" back to the apartment. That ended pretty much exactly how you would expect. You know... he occasionally mentions jumping out of planes... it must have something to do with being bad at directions. ;)

So anyway, I'm here now... finally... roughly 9 hours after I left for the airport this afternoon. (It's supposed to be a 3 hour flight.)

I'll be flying home on Thursday night, and back out on Sunday afternoon. 8 more weeks to go Posted on Sunday, October 15, 2006 11:05 PM General Interest | Back to top

Hey now, I got that Mustang at $125 less than the usual corporate rate for full-size rentals.

As I said at the time, it's not really about the price. It's the appearance that matters. :)
