i should be in edinburgh right now. should being the operative word. apparently three things hate me: Continental Airlines, Newark International Airport, and mother nature. i should have left thursday evening, but my flight out of albany was delayed into newark. i could come to terms with losing a single day, and i did.

then, twenty minutes before we were to board, they cancel all flights and close the airport. this was about six-thirty pm on friday. after waiting in line for three hours to get the flight rescheduled, we find out that the next flight we could get on leaves monday night. FOUR FUCKING DAYS after we were originally supposed to depart.

with it being friday night still, i realize that i don't want to spend another three days in newark airport bringing my life's sum up to an astounding seven (two days spent on my first jaunt to texas, two days on the way back as well). i made the executive decision to go back home for the weekend, which in the end resulted in nearly an hundred dollars spent between the train to penn station, a cab ride to the wrong destination, a cab ride to the correct one, and a seven hour stay at the port authority.

the only good things that have come out of this are the story, getting my return pushed back without being charged, and my mother springing not only for the train back to newark on monday, but also for a bed and breakfast for two nights.

god doesn't hate me. just new jersey.

That is terrible. But a funny story to tell later, I think.

That is pretty unfortunate. If it wasn't for those damn italics I could almost feel a bit sorry for you.
