Boston

Friday, August 24th, 2007

McCarran gate
I got a flight itinerary from my parents this morning and found out they were headed to Boston (I’m not sure if they had told me in advance). I planned on visiting Boston sometime this fall to see my sister and friends. With the chance of me making it home for Thanksgiving or Xmas looking even slimmer I decided that there was no time better than the present to make the Boston trip and see my parents. I get in at 1AM tonight and I’ll be there about a week. I’m sitting in McCarran right now but my gate doesn’t seem to have either outlets or the sweet sweet free wifi; I think that’s a sign that I should go find some lunch.

(P.S. today was the first time I used Kayak, pretty damn sweet)
