I went to Carly's classroom today and fixed her computer. Hooray for a little brother who teaches ME useful things.
I left there and went to Continental Parking AKA: the weirdest remote lot ever! I wanted 20 minutes but other than that, I can't complain.
I got to the airport 4 hours before my flight to get a good seat (MartinAir reccomends this). I was about the 50th person in line even at 3pm. I'll be in 37H - a window seat. I asked for a seat with a view. Who knows what I'll get.
Then I went to Brookstone to check out the pillows. After 20 minutes or so, I went to Lush, my favorite cosmetics store in the world. Sonoma, the girl who I first started working with 4+ years ago, is pregnant! We spent almost an hour catching up. She's the manager now and I just love her. I'm going to pick up a special Lush product for her while I'm in Amsterdam. Apparently, Europe has cooler products that the US. Who knew?
Then I went and got my currency exchanged. I paid $160 to get 100 Euro. Not ideal.
Then I went back to Brookstone to buy the pillow I looked at. It came with a sleeping mask. I'll enjoy it. I headed through security - uneventful. I took the tram and then headed to my gate. I realized I should probably eat before flying but the only food in this wing is Burger King. So I got a tendercrisp sandwhich. It wasn't great but it was food. Now I am getting ready to board. They just made an announcement that the elderly and those with children should board now. In 9 hours, I'll be in Amsterdam. I already feel like I'm there. I'm the only brunette on the flight (I think) and EVERYONE speaks Dutch (or maybe that's German). Anyway, I'll be there soon.
Wish me Luck,
