Winter Vacation: Day 1
Posted on February 11, 2011
First of all, after I posted that I was bringing four back issues of Vanity Fair, I found three more under my travel computer case. So make it seven. On the full day of travel, I took out one of them and read an entire book.
I am officially calling B.S. on airline on-time arrivals. My flight out of O’Hare was at least a half hour late taking off and we were still twenty minutes early landing at SFO. I am pretty sure you don’t pick up 50 minutes from tailwinds. I submit that the arrival times are rigged so that the airlines get the statistics that they want. I know that is not really news.
When I arrived at Kona last night, I was all efficiency with the knowing where I was going and getting to the hotel and even knowing where to park. I had started pondering whether I want to live here, but am pretty sure that Hawaii would not let me bring Kiwi the Grey, which is a deal breaker. And anyway, they don’t have a football team. I suppose I could get the NFL channel. Sundays would be really different if kick off was at 8am.
Last night, I slept with the patio door open. Now I am going to get my papaya and sunscreen. Would you believe I forgot the sunscreen?
You don't want to move to Hawaii–then you would have to work while you're there and not just lay around and soak up some sun. Not to mention how expensive it would be!Enjoy your trip!
