So, I'm in the Philadelphia airport, where I've just had my second cancelled flight of the day. Plus, on the landing of the flight from Kansas City, there was awful turbulence and the plane had to circle around three times, and when we landed, all of the passengers applauded because everyone was just a little afraid they were going to die.

Then our flight to Pittsburgh was delayed, so we didn't miss it, except then it just...never came. Nobody really seemed to know why. So then we went to a later flight to Pittsburgh, except that then the first officer went missing, so they had to cancel that as well. So now we're maybe getting another flight, or maybe they're giving us a hotel room.

On the bright side: I may get to miss my statistics exam tomorrow morning.

(This post probably sounds more bitter than it actually is. There's nothing life-or-death waiting for me in Pittsburgh, so I honestly think this is all kind of fun. *g*)

EDIT: Oh, yeah, forgot to mention. Having met my niece, I can confirm that she is, in fact, the best niece in the world. Despite being teeny-tiny and lacking speech or fine motor control.

I had an actual positive chance run-in with a classmate from high school today. (Rare only because I tend to keep in contact with the people from high school I liked.) Funnily enough, I'd thought I'd seen her several times over the past few days, only to realize it was someone else, so when we ran into each other on the street, although I recognized her, it took me a few moments to say anything. *g*

In other news: my roommate and I are finally getting settled--I'm very proud of myself for getting all of the Internet set up, since it involved calling several customer service people--but classes are slow to gain momentum. I'm sure the programming classes will quickly become difficult, but otherwise my only concern is matrix algebra. Not because of the subject matter, but because my professor can't teach. I'll find friends who know the subject to help me.

And that concludes my drive-by update, I guess.
