Dave!The thrill of getting to come home a day early was slightly overshadowed by my hotel stay last night... whoever was in the room next to mine decided to smoke some harsh drugs of some kind, which filtered into my room throughout the evening. It was a non-smoking room, but I guess when you decide to do drugs, you've pretty much already thrown caution to the wind and laughed in the face of authority. I debated whether I wanted switch rooms, but as it got later and later, I finally just decided to stick it out and not go through the extra trouble.

As it ends up, that was stupid. Because when I woke up I found that I had a sore throat from the fumes.

When I got to the airport this morning, the check-in attendant apologized up and down that there wasn't an upgrade available to me, but when I got my boarding pass it was a First Class seat. Luckily, this time there wasn't an incident with any First Class assholes, so it was a pleasant trip home. I had some episodes of the TV show House on my laptop, so the time just flew by (so to speak). While I enjoy the show, every episode seems the same. Somebody gets sick with a mystery illness that nobody understands. They try something, it doesn't work. They try something else and make things even worse. Then, just before the patient is going to die, they miraculously figure out a cure. It's formulaic and gets tiring.

Anyway, now I'm back home for a few days. In going through my photos from my short trip just now, I found one I thought was kind of funny:

Safe Driver

It's not that I wanted to call and report him for being a bad driver, his driving was fine, it's just funny that the driver is so paranoid about people reporting him that he felt the need to put duct tape over the number.

    Don’t forget about the sarcastic, borderline caustic, remarks from the Doctor.

    Lab Tech – We’ve never seen anything like this virus before.

    House – I saw your mother last night.

    Lab Tech – That doesn’t change anything.

    House – You may be right.

    I weary of that show.

    (BTW – If you can really focus on the 80s/Brat Pack movie quotes I would appreciate it.)

    Drivers change trailers constantly. Theres no telling who actually put the tape on this particular trailer.

    Your snapshot of the back of the truck (with the duct taped phone number of the “Award Winning” driver) must have been a Swift company truck. Swift has one of the worst safety records and the dubious distinction of being one of the worst companies to work for. Notice the sign didn’t say who the award winning drivers are! LOL
