West coast journeying

I’m currently in Atlanta airport.

I didn’t mean to be still here. A combination of tiredness, lack of care with a watch, and (I suspect) there being different timezones in different terminals, mean that I missed my connecting flight.

On the positive side, I was happily making notes on excellent metametaphysics papers while missing my flight. Still, an all-things-considered bad, I think.

But the nice people at Delta rebooked me, and (modulo a taxi journey and quite possibly sleeping at San Jose airport) my travel plans are back in the swing.

So long as I don’t miss another flight through blogging…

  1. I’ve only missed one connecting flight in my life, and it was also in Atlanta, on the way to New York. So since it’s the common factor, I’m going to blame the airport there.

    Enjoy the conference!

  3. Thanks Aidan! I did manage to get to my hotel, thankfully, and if I can sort out my luggage this morning things will be back on track.

    Clearly, it’s the time zombies in Atlanta who are to blame!

    Nice quote!
