Updates: Always Take a Book to the Airport
Kel Wednesday, October 08, 2014I have a smartphone. I shouldn't need a book, right? Wrong. (Unless you have the Kindle/iBooks/Nook app on your phone, I suppose.) Despite knowing better, I left Thursday evening for the airport without a book. I think I had some irrational fear it would put my "personal item" over the size limit and doom me to paying an exorbitant carry-on fee. Regardless, I regretted it the second I found the gate and realized I had nearly two hours before boarding. And then I regretted it again Monday morning while waiting for the flight back.
Book troubles aside, I had a great time in Florida, though I completely overate. I told myself stuffing oneself on vacation is expected and I should go all out since, assuming I pass the LSAT in December, this will be my last vacation for some years...but yeah, overate. See exhibits below from my visit to Epcot with my little sister, which was only Day 1.
We should have sprinted through all the pavilions so we could eat everything before our stomachs realized they were full. Anyway, I returned home to new tires on my car and a birthday dinner with the family. I'm now looking forward to the Collingswood Book Festival on Saturday, tons of studying for the LSAT and a strict budget after the free-spending vacation. Oh, and I'll be eking out time to read blogs and books in between all that, of course. ;)
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Chasing Power by Sarah Beth Durst! An interesting attempt at X-Men meets Indiana Jones. :)
