A Few Unrelated Comments and a Harrowing Story

— The sound mix on the Walk the Line DVD is horrendous. We’re alternating between turning it up to the proverbial 11 to catch all the dialogue and diving for the mute button to save what’s left of our eardrums when the music starts.

— Damon stands by his assertion that our visitors from last week are swingers, and that the weekend could have gone very differently.

— A reader of one of our online fictional diaries has decided that she can do better, and she’s taken the title, the story line and all the characters over to Blogspot and started writing it herself. Which she totally would have gotten away with if she hadn’t ADVERTISED HER JOURNAL IN OUR JOURNAL COMMMENTS SECTION. I wish there were a way to contact her and just nicely say, “Look, it’s got to go.” But she’s hidden her identity, which means I have to use our lawyers to ferret her out. And they won’t be as nice as I would have. I don’t feel too badly though, as she is a big jerk.

And now the harrowing story:

The boss and I were headed to Seattle on Wednesday for a day of meetings at MSN. We got picked up at the office at 3. We boarded our plane just after midnight. Then demanded to get off when we heard that we were waiting out a lightning storm and then were 75th in line for takeoff. We found out Thursday morning that the flight was eventually cancelled at 2. As I told Stacy: You know I’ve hit rock bottom when I’m eating heavily-fried food in a golf-themed sports bar located in the middle of an Arctic airport terminal. It wasn’t pretty. We did play a fun game of Would You Rather? (ie: Would you rather this flight be really turbulent or that you wind up seating next to someone who’s airsick?) (For the record, she took the turbulence and I took the airsick, but I did want to know just HOW airsick before my committment was final.)

    A lot more dancing?
    Oh, wait. You meant the other kind of swinging.
