Left today from SFO on my way to Bacolod to see my Dad. 

Thanks to Fred for last minute driving me to the airport! Backstory: I was supposed to take MUNI (N-Judah!!!) and BART to SFO. While on the N Judah, at around 5pm (I was supposed to check in at 6:30pm), the MUNI lines shut down due to some emergency that shut down the passageway at Duboce and Church, so I was sore out of luck, except that Fred was just driving home, so he was able to take me! While waiting, I happened upon Burgermeister, so I snacked/gobbled a whole bleu cheese and sauteed mushroom and onion burger! YUM! I finished the rest in line at SFO :)

I was able to get through check in in about an hour without any problems. Then, I had a couple of hours to kill before my flight to Manila. So, I chatted on the phone and bought (even though I already have a copy at home) Congo by Michael Crichton (rhymes with frighten!). I remember my Dad and I seeing this movie in the theaters and he liked it.

I also bought a drink called "Neuro Bliss" which was a supplement type of drink with an added "do not consume if pregnant" warning. Good thing I am not pregnant! :D It was lightly carbonated and I was soooo thirsty!

Then, I waited until they called to weigh the luggage, as carry ons are supposed to be limited to 7kg. My bag is about 17 lbs, so a bit over, but they let me through! Phew!
 
Boarded and got my seat. It was by the aisle, so I was able to walk around/prevent DVTs and go to the bathroom at will!

Then the announcement came (in both Tagalog and English) that we had 14 hours to go!!! NON STOP!!! ARGHHHH!
