Amazingly, my connecting flight had no complications. Even more impressive? The in-flight movie was /good/! They showed "Life or Something Like It", which not only was filmed in Seattle, but had actual Seattle personalities in cameo roles. (For example, "Sam", the weatherman at KIRO 4 news, was played by Steve Pool, the actual KIRO weatherman.) In addition to amusing touches like that, it had a good script /and/ had one of my favorite actors, Tony Shalhoub, in it. (Shalhoub played the street prophet; he's also Jeeks -- the alien pawn-shop owner whose head is repeatedly blown off -- in both Men in Black films, and neurotic detective Adrian Monk in "Monk".)
Amazing, an enjoyable film on a flight!!
Landing in Atlanta now, will post this once I can turn on the phone part of Packet. I've had 4 hours of sleep in the past 50 or so; am tempted to sleep in the baggage claim area while waiting for shadowfey and mistresschaos's flight to get in. Nah... :)
