Collection of thoughts

Over the last week I twittered a lot. If you didn't catch the updates, here's a compilation of my thoughts for the last week:
  • Packed for Wisconsin and Rhode Island. Should probably try to get some sleep.
  • Made it to the airport on time despite hitting 'off' instead of 'snooze' this morning.
  • I think twitter was made with travel in mind.
  • Waiting in line for seat assignment. They never said 'get in a line,' we just did. 'Bah'ing should start soon.
  • The big yellow exclamation mark on the monitor declaring 'FLIGHT OVERBOOKED' instills confidence in Delta airlines.
  • Oo, I was one of the lucky ones: I actually got the seat I paid for 3 weeks ago! That shouldn't be an accomplishment for an airline, but...
  • Exit row seating. Am I up to the responsibility? I think I am.
  • Just landed in Minneapolis. Slept during takeoff with minimal drooling on myself. No exit row responsibilities needed.
  • Does anyone order anything from Sky Mall? Has anyone thought, mid-commercial-flight, that they need a personal lap pool in their house?
  • Exiting a plane by stairs onto the runway makes me feel like one of The Beatles.
  • http://twitpic.com/1tojk -*facepalm*
  • 360 Burrito at the MSP airport = Chipotle if they tried to do international food without actually going anywhere. Edible, but generic taste.
  • The loudspeakers just asked a woman to pick up a courtesy phone and dial 911 for a message. That can't be a good message.
  • I just heard someone on CNN say 'I love Rush Limbaugh. I cherish the sound of his voice.' First the Fox News store, now this. *facepalm*
  • For the first time in my life, I am willfully in Wisconsin.
  • I just found out I've had my headphones in backwards all day. Meh.
  • Well it made more sense to wear them the other way. The right cord is longer than the left and the ipod is on my right.
  • I really want an ice cream cone.
  • One thing I don't miss about the Midwest: the country radio stations.
  • I need to start using twitter to log blog ideas. I keep thinking of great topics, then losing them. Not unlike Liz Gilbert's 'geniuses.'
  • I have less than $1000 on my credit card. This hasn't happened for about 5 years.
  • I like WI now.
  • http://twitpic.com/1v1at - This was supposed to be in the last post.
  • It took Sprint picture mail 5 hours to get me a photo. Customer service said it can take up to 3 days. That is a terrible system.
  • Either Alisha hit the wrong button or you have to pop the trunk on VW Beetles to get to the gas.
  • She hit the wrong button.
  • My flight has been cancelled for no discernible reason. I'm confused.
  • Driving to O'hare to catch my next flight. Well done United.
  • I'm half convinced United cancelled this flight and put us on bus instead just to save money.
  • Finally on the plane. O'hare is too freaking big. I'm also wondering if anyone else on this flight is DO bound. I'm guessing yes.
  • In RI. Why do programs aplogize for unexpected crashes? Are there expected ones? Also, note to self: 10,000 hours of practice.
  • Just realized I have no idea where I'm going.
  • I'm at the wrong Hilton.
  • Sid's memory scares me.
  • Everyone on the IRC is exactly like they are in real life. It's awesome and weird at the same time.
  • This phone is so worth it. It's been a lifesaver on this trip.
  • "$10 a day for internet? For $10 a day you can hire a Chinese kid to run back and forth memorizing 1's and 0's." -Orga
  • The Rock Band tournament isn't impressing me.
  • I just owned Mark (Sprawl) in sumo suit wrestling.
  • It is officially impossible to be inconspicuous with Sid.
  • Air mattresses were not meant to stack.
  • http://twitpic.com/1x3ku - Just met Tiger Woods
  • "You got Guinness in my shoe." *takes off shoe and pours out beer* -Orga
  • Nerds and facial hair don't mix.
  • Last night I saw Watchmen: it was good. Very true to the novel. Robert Downey Junior was amazing. Period.
  • Sid was telling everyone the Comedian was him -- I just checked. You're right; he's wrong.
  • Last night at DO -- I am now, for the first time this weekend, playing video games (Guitar Hero World Tour).
  • Digital Overload Sumo Wrestling: http://is.gd/mtkh and http://is.gd/mtku
  • Traveling again today. Twitter will be frequently updated. Stay tuned for more as the story develops.
  • Danishes: breakfast of champions and fat people. Even better when paid for by gift cards you won.
  • I should sign up for frequent flyer plans. I've flown like 9 times in the last year. I'm an old pro now.
  • There's an old lady staring at me while I'm waiting for the plane. I think she's trying to eat my soul.
  • I can feel my soul being sucked out by this old woman. It tickles.
  • I keep forgetting that caffeine is a potent diarrhetic.
  • Someone should make a drink called 'Umm' since that's what most people say first when asked what they want.
  • I wonder what music my mother listened to while I was in the womb. (This is what I think about while flying.)
  • Reading about evolutionary theory and biology is somewhat disheartening: everything boils down to wanting to get it on as much as possible.
  • When sharing an armrest, I suggest not taking up the whole bloody thing and then some. It lessens the desire of your neighbor to kill you.
  • http://twitpic.com/1yl4j - I love bacon dispensers.
  • I just counted 47 cents in a urinal at Detroit's airport so I added 6 cents of my own.
  • I just saw a woman: black boots, jeans, white shirt, red jacket, piercing eyes and red hair to match. A vision of perfection.
  • I hate The Grateful Dead. Their music is dull and reminiscent of eating playdoh with my ears.
  • I just found out Neil (@neilhimself) was in the Detroit airport the same time I was. I would have run across it to simply shake his hand.
  • I'm not sure it's entirely normal to see exposed wires on a plane. Or to think "I wonder what would happen if I cut this."
So. Yeah.

I scoffed at your sudden likeness of Wisconsin. Heh.
