where's the snow?

Spurred on by the fear of being trapped in an airport for hours due to this huge snowstorm that's suppose to hit Toronto Thursday night/Friday, I made the last-minute decision to fly out of Cleveland Thursday night. Packed my bag and checked out of the hotel in 20 minutes. Was at the airport 1 hour before departure. Paid the $100 USD fee for changing my flight. And then proceeded to sit in the Cleveland airport while our flight was delayed for 3 hours. Finally get on the plane and then sat at the gate for 45 minutes. Actual flying time to Toronto -- 37 minutes. Then we proceeded to wait another 50 minutes before we can disembark. Huge line for a taxi. I finally arrive home at 2am. 9 hours in total.

And I wake up this morning to bright sunshine and... no snowstorm!! Checked my original flight -- arrived in Toronto EARLY!!!! *bangs head on desk*

Onto more pleasent things...

Thanks to my new hero, the lovely thysanotus, I'm now listening to Hand in Hand from UAL. I seriously heart this song. I always thought the beginning with Ike saying, "[this song] is about an old girlfriend who cheated on me... oh it's ok, I got her back" meant that Ike took said girlfriend back and me thinking why Ike would want to get back with a cheating girlfriend. But now it's been explained that the "I got her back" was most likely meant as revenge. Very interesting.

Hey, nia_starr, did you hear about the latest Arrested Development casting news? This is going to be awesome. And there's rumours of either ABC or Showtime picking up AD *keeps fingers crossed* And Serenity DVD out on the 20th!!

canno, I'm hoping hoping hoping that I will be watching Brokeback Mountain tomorrow night. If I do, I will make sure to talk about it constantly til you've seen it as well. ;) Looks like the movie has opened in TO, Vancouver & Montreal but in limited theatres (only 1 theatre in all of TO).

Off to unpack now.
