Hello from the Hotel Condado! It´s approximately 10:36pm Barcelona time (that equals 1:30pm West Coast time, which equals a ridiculously tired Jennifer. Hee.) OMG, I am so tired, but I am also so excited that I can´t quite make myself sleep yet. My Aunt Merry & I were walking along the Avinguida Diagonal, checking out the stores & sites, looking at the Spainards, taking in the atomsphere (which is as smogged up as LA, let me tell you) and realizing that were we deleriously and probably dangerously tired. Or as my aunt says we were "Pie Eyed". I´ve never heard that expression before, but hell, she´s from the east coast and well, it works.
The flight was long & miserable. Seriously. I know you´re thinking, "Oh Jen, you´re just being silly. I´m sure it was fine." No, no really, it was probably one of the most annoying flights I´ve ever experienced. I was stuck in the middle seat in between a window mate & an aisle mate.....I know you´re saying, "But Jen, that´s no big deal. Everybody gets the middle sometimes..." And yes, I would agree. I had no problem with that. I resigned myself to my middle seat fate and was quite happy. Happy that is until Ms. Flingy-Mc-Elbow (that would be my aisle mate) began having (my interpretation entirely, not a medical diagnosis) freaking seizures with her arm & elbow. Jab, jab, jab. OMG, seriously, she kept moving around, couldn´t sit still, kept jabbing me with her elbow, kept hogging my arm rest, and did I mention she kept jabbing me with her elbow? For over 10 hours!!! Now I´m a reasonable person (no comments from the peanut gallery please) but this was out of control. I couldn´t sleep because every 15 or 20 minutes she´d get all funky again and...well you know. Ouy. My window mate didn´t do this. He was awesome. She...she was like a bull in a china shop with a grenade around her neck wearing clown shoes. Ok, that makes no sense but I´m running on fumes and am about to fall asleep in this here lobby. =)
Anyhoo, thanks to everybody for the well wishes. I´m beginning to mellow out and am really enjoying Barcelona so far. I was super anxious at the SFO the other morning. Thank goodness for the Vicodin!! I´ll be posting more pics from my cell soon. Sorry for the crappy cell phone video.......I´ll try a different rez. Till later, Bona Nit!
