[travel] We was just sailing along...on Moonlight Bay...

Lurking in the Sea-Tac airport, waiting to connect to San Francisco. [insert obligatory rant about airport power outlets and Lake's Law of Seating here]

The geographically astute among my readership may have noticed that thanks to the miracle of US airline fare structures I have in fact gone north in order to head south. Save for a small amount of cardinal disorientation, things are going well. I'm not moving furniture, meeting deliverypersons or writing large checks at the moment.

On the other hand, the day is young.

Westercon ho!

PS. — ktempest is a true hero(ine) of the devolution. That is all. You may shop as usual. No need to return to your homes.
