More Traveling Crap

I got picked up by the music coordinator and search committee chair from the hotel.  My st interview was with the Dean of Academics at 1:30p.  Great Interview.  She asked good questions and I answered really well.  I then toured the college and music department myself until 3:30p for my 2nd interview with the search committee.  I did really well with my presentation (act as the committee is a beginning voice class) and the questions.

Was then taken to the airport my another professor of the college around 5p so I can go home and see my girlfriend.  Nope.  There was a major snow storm in Charlotte, North Carolina and all flights to there are canceled on all airlines.  There were no other flights to Houston on any other airline. 

Airlines suck.  What happened to the red eye flights?  Oh, since airline prices fluctuate up and down like a yo yo, no one wants to fly anymore so there are less flights.  I like traveling.  I hate flying.  It is not fun anymore.

So thanks to my wonederful girlfriend and her internet searching ability, she found a good hotel, the Days Inn, near the airport for $69.   A shuttle got me a the airport, dropped my crap off, and the hotel shuttle took me to the Skyline Restaurant.  I wanted real food.  Pretty good chicken parmesan.  Now for some sleep.

In One Word: Nothing

Wow. It looks like it has been awhile since I have written here.  There is not much to put here since all I do these days is stay at home cleaning, watching TV and playing with Mercury.

So today I go to the airport for an interview at a college in Connecticut.  My flight left around noon.  Dropped Quartz off at work, got some kolaches and left on a place to Charlotte, North Carolina.  Then the same place goes to Hartford.  Well, 6 hours later, we could not land in Hartford because the winds were so strong that the breaks on the plane would not sufficiency stop the plane.  So we were diverted to Providence, Road Island.  Brilliant.  Luckily the airline ordered us a bus to take us to Hartford.  They said the bus would arrive in 15 minutes.  Ya right.  It arrived 1 1/2 hours later.  Got on for a 2 hour ride to the Hartford airport through fresh fallen snow.  Arrived at the Hartford airport a little past 10:30p.  I was picked up by one of the professors at the college and her husband.  They took me to dinner since I had not had a real meal all day.  By the time I got to the hotel, it was midnight.  12 hours of traveling hell.  But wait, more fun tomorrow.

A New Year

I made Jennifer pancakes for breakfast.  We hung around my place.  Jennifer relaxed and I did some cleaning and laundry.

For dinner I made her Barbecued Chicken Burritos which I must say were really good.

Happy New Year

We had lunch at Salsas.  We then walked on the Strand and browsing through stores.  It was a relaxing New Years with Jennifer.
