Planes, trains, and automobiles


Thus far, we have sat on planes but not actually gone anywhere - it's been much more about automobiles.

After re-routing (our bags left for Heathrow without us) a few times, we are now supposedly on the way to Heathrow via Chicago. If and when I do find my bag, I'm going to sing, "Reunited and it feels so good!"

But it was nice to have a bonus night with my family. My 15-year-old brother and 11-year-old sister are still somehow convinced I am cool. I will keep plying them with Starbucks and Hello Kitty respectively to keep that status as long as I can...

So wish me luck! Bon (hopefully) voyage to us!

PS I hate to admit it, but I am getting addicted to the netbook. So I hope not to drop or otherwise break it. And...only in Silicon Valley...there is not only a station for laptop charging, but also a wheel-chair accessible one! I hail from the land of equal-opportunity geeks.

RK, what kind of Starbucks are you pushing on your 15 and 11 year old siblings??? Should they be having caffeine?

Lost luggage is the pits! How come you are having issues with the flight out of the US?

You're the cool blogger, why wouldn't you be the cool older sibling? It is what it is, chica! Hope you have a wonderful trip without anymore mishaps!

I couldn't believe this when you e-mailed me about it and now reading it in print on the blog....still can't believe that your luggage got tired of waiting for you to be ready. :D
