Today was also a lazy day. Slept in, went shopping, cooked some food, did lots of this travel blog updating stuff,and played with Maia's roommate's new kitten. Mom and Dad, I am still a full supporter of getting a kitten for Jinx. They make such great playmates! And they are such cute litle furballs! Maia and I almost went to a movie but decided to wake up early and go hiking in the redwoods tomorrow instead. I CANNOT wait to go to the redwoods. Haven't been back since the first time I came to San Fran in 2001. I think it's exactly the cure I need for my homesickness of Boulder.
After having a conversation about "worst plane experiences" not long before leaving Boulder, I figured I had jinxed myself and prepared for the worst. The flight was pretty full, and while waiting to board the plane, I scanned the fellow passengers to see who was the worst person I would most likely end up next to for the flight. Well, I must have great plane karma or something, because not only did I not end up next to the extremely obese woman, the 6 or 7 families with 2 crying kids each, or the smelly unkept guy... the middle seat was completely empty! I love that! Now I'm scared for the LONNG flight to Bangkok. I feel like my flying luck just can't possibly continue for yet another long hauler. Maia picked me up at the airport and we went straight to Denny's for cheap late-night food ($9 for Denny's chicken fingers? oh yea, I'm in Cali now) and girl talk. It ended up being quite a late night.
