KC-10 Approved!!

I've never been in the same room, much less, looked into the eyes of a person accused of attempted murder--till today, that is.

To aviod being vague, some douche bag tried to kill a family friend (and, thank God, failed); today was the preliminary hearing and I was there.

It's that time of the year again...

Yeah. I am at work right now. I just heard radial engines off in the distance. Radial engines sound very distinctive for us pilots. It's like how everyone can tell the difference between a car and a Harley.

Anyway, so I heard radials and then I did the next logical thing: I walked outside and took a look, and was treated to the sight of the only flying Consolidated B-24J Liberator.

Fuck yeah, the Collings Foundation "Wings of Freedom" tour is back in town! =)

I think they're in or around Livermore (LVK).

You're so cold.

I have determined that pilot status is defined by how far ahead of the wing your pilots' seat is located.

--Sitting on the wing? If you look to the left, is the view partially blocked either up high (Cessna) or down low (Piper)? Keep at it.

--Sitting slightly ahead of the wing? Is your view to the left possibly slightly blocked by an engine pylon? You're moving on up!

--Sitting WAY ahead of the wing? Is it impossible to see the wing from your seat? You've made it!

I'm about to peace out from work and go see ♥Edrina♥.

General Update

Good God, IFR school is TOUGH! But I guess it's not meant to be easy, is it.

Work bothers me less, and I also have less hours this month. Coincidence?

Get this; I now have a +-$130 credit on my TWA account! It's so AMAZING!

College class (History 17B) is almost over; maybe three weeks to go or so and that is that. It's going ok...I guess. Gotta get an 80+ on the final for it to be worthwhile.

Right now I am hungry and I miss my love. =)

Your little hoodrat friend makes me sick, and after I get sick I just get sad;
'Cuz it burns being broke, hurts to be heartbroken and always being both must be a drag...



Hurray for no sleep! I will simply have to caffinate myself awake. Good thing I have lots of tea nearby!

*sigh*

Instrument training is tough! There's so much to know, so many "If-Then" rules, so many new things.

But it is fun! And soon will be the day when I will break out of the clouds right at minimums on an ILS approach. =)

Anyway, I am still in love. I am still in shock that someone worth my while FINALLY came along. It's proof to the old addage that if you wait around long enough, you get what you want.

Edrina and I are going to go up to Columbia on the 7th. =)
