Trip to India

23 Jul

My flight was ok, though the old me would have wanted to pinch someone.  Flight was full and I was sandwiched between two people, one of whom seemed to think her life depended on touching or bumping me at least twice an hour.  And there were none of the (i’m now seeing not so) universal acknowledgments of sorry, oops, sheepish smile, nada!

UPSIDE: TONS OF MOVIES, MOVIES, MOVIES! I watched 3 and a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory!  So aside from getting occasionally checked by the chick next to me, the flight was relatively painless and went by really quickly!

I got to Dubai and thought I’d seen the end of the touchy-feelies, but the man behind me bumped into me with every step we moved forward,I’m  starting to think I’ll have to loosen my ideas about personal space…oh well that and the word “excuse me” as I haven’t heard that during any of this physical contact!  LOL. Whatever, I can roll with it!

I normally love Emirates, but staff was a bit off today.

On the initial flight the attendant guy asked what drink I wanted, I said apple juice, then he brought a tray with a soda and an apple juice.  I reached for the apple juice and he goes “please take your drink ma’am” so I thought uh..maybe he wants me to take the whole thing to give a drink to the lady next to me so I reached for the whole tray and he didn’t let me.  He told me to take my drink again so I started to reach for the apple juice and perturbed now (as was I) he goes “ma’m, didn’t you order 7-Up??” and I went “no, apple juice!!!!” And then he was like “oh ok.”

Is it THAT deep? Why not just clarify the drink I ordered in the first place instead of insisting I take the soda, weirdo, is there a short supply of apple juice?? LOL.  Then later the same dude said he’d go get my meal (they didn’t have the lamb on his cart) and never came back.   Then for breakfast he brought me pancakes instead of eggs. Ugh@thingsthatmakeyouthinkyou’reonpunk’d. But again, the fun televisions distracted me enough not to care very much.

The next flight to Mumbai was totally fine.  The air attendant was so sweet the entire flight, so even though she forgot my food too (YES), I didn’t mind as much.  I’m easily bought.

Heading Out!

23 Jul

Yep super cranky on my last post, but “sometimes it be’s like that.”  No sugar daddy appeared, but my REAL daddy did guess I may need a hookup and sent a bit! Thank God for parents who can help you out sometimes. No joke, it is a real blessing and I know everyone doesn’t have that so I am grateful.

I was able to get what I needed to done and now…I’M IN INDIA! OH YEAH!

I was running around crazy on Thursday trying to get my shots and all the things I knew I may not find (at least not for cheap) outside of the USA and flaked on meeting all my friends to say goodbye, felt very lame about that.

Packing was ok but I still had a hard time editing.  This leg is a bit easier than the first because for the most part, we’ll be in warm weather, packing for hot and cold was a pain! LOL with that said my luggage is only just a bit lighter. You do the math. 😉
