I head to Colombia tomorrow for 3 weeks of adventure, mishaps, broken spanish, cheap food and blue blue oceans. This was today’s xkcd comic (I love xkcd comics btw.) I’ll be posting photos and writing about it on my travel blog, ISO: Adventure.
It almost seems a shame I wrapped up the Daily Delights, because something pretty cool occurred yesterday (it wasn’t actually a typical day event but rather quite out of the ordinary, so maybe it makes sense that it’s not a DD.)
Flying out to San Francisco yesterday with D and 1.) I found a dollar in the vending machine – yay! and 2.) had my first celebrity sighting in Detroit airport. Philip Seymour Hoffman walked right by me. If I was a nutcase, I easily could have hugged him, he was that close. I tend to be so oblivious to other people (usually on purpose in public areas) that it was an exciting surprise. We looked at each other and by the time it registered he was a few steps past. I don’t think I would of believed it, but his voice is well, you know, exactly the way it sounds in movies. So I knew it was him. D confirmed and we trekked him for a bit just to confirm again. lol
So that was a pretty killer way to start our trip. But then sadly, we arrive in San Francisco at 3 AM EST making us exhausted and Delta didn’t feed us on the flight which was lame and they lost my luggage, which put me a bit into a tizzy because how could you lose something I paid an extra $23 to handle? The guy at the counter nonchalantly informed me that my bag didn’t make the flight — oh really?! His customer service/empathy skills? Not there at all. So that didn’t help either. I should get it today, sometime in the realm of noon to 6pm. Oh that’s helpful.
Right now I’d say I’m still stoked for this trip West, but I’ll be happier when I can take a hot shower and have clean clothes to change into.
