GIP

Despite an inordinate amount of eating leftovers and goofing around Googling the cute cruise director for the Carnival Glory and making icons, I still have achieved this:

Words: 45,268

I also just passed the climax. Now I need to craft a 5,000-word epilogue.

So... sleepy...

Also spent a good part of the day finishing up with Tivo. Have just watched over a week's worth of Craig Ferguson. James Lipton told him that "landing a plane is possibly the most difficult thing anyone could ever do." Hmmm. Apparently, I did miss my calling as a pilot, because while it's been over 20 years since I last landed a plane, I never found it all that tough. Flying a plane was on a par with riding a bicycle, honestly.

Ah, well. More of those crazy regrets. I'm too sleepy to think straight. I have two days to write a little under 5,000 words. I rock. (But I didn't write the review that was supposedly due today. I'll get it done. Eventually.)

My dad was a pilot; I kinda grew up in a cockpit. I've flown mostly biplanes and two-seater single-props; but once a four-seater Cessna (and landed that one, in a storm). Dad always said I took to it "like a duck to water," but I went through my teenage "I don't know what I want to do with myself" period and then Dad died, so I lost my chance to get basically free lessons and my license. And now I simply can't AFFORD flight school...

Ah, well.

Thanks! I hope I rock all the way to the end! *g*

See answer to ljs, above, on airplanes. It's been a long, long time since I was last in a cockpit, though.

(Hope you're having a good trip!!!)

See comment to ljs about my history as a pilot.

Thanks. Getting there, now; only it's to padding. I need about 2500 words and I actually finished the story. That happens to me so rarely... *g*
