From 36,000 feet

Picture 001 At the risk of seeming horribly provincial, I just can’t resist making a post from the sky.sitting here with my laptop open, crammed into a seat so tightly that I can’t get the lid all the way up.  I’m on a Delta flight and I have a wireless connection.  Amazing.  Of course, I can’t turn my phone on, but I can post to my blog?  Ah well, no laughing allowed here.  This is a photo of me taken with my webcam on the laptop.  Of course, there is an adorable girl sitting next to me who will NOT be quiet for even a minute.  I’m hiding behind earplugs while she flirts with the cute guy next to her.  This may seem like a completely irrelevant post, but really, for most of us, isn’t technology shifting and changing exponentially?  Blogging from the air.  I think someone else recently did this as well, Jeanne, I believe, on her way to Tucson.  Now if we could just figure out how to get the computer all the way open so we can see the screen and type at the same time when the person in front of us has their seat reclined.  Too funny!

  1. Well, I think thats the first time I've seen a post done from a high flying jet aircraft. Neat-O for you. Yes, this is an amazing techno age we live in alright. Too bad about your inconsiderate neighbors. Do you suppose you could press ALT-CTL-DEL & SHIFT them to another section of the aircraft. If not you may have to press ESC on your laptop & exit your situation…:))


  2. Wow! You're such a technie! I LOVE your writing…I don't see many true wordsmiths in blogland. And thanks for following my rag, “Homer and Lucille.”
