If only the sun
Were my sail
To lift me up
Into the blue,
Far, far away
This painful sea
Of frozen laughter.
It’s been a while since I’ve rated airports, possibly because I don’t and haven’t traveled nearly as much as I used to. Some airports have definitely stepped up their "stuff", namely the Las Vegas airport (McCarran). It used to get a C, but now it gets a B. Mainly due to the fact that they outlawed smoking. BRAVO!! BRAVO!! Now the airport doesn’t smell like a frickin ASHTRAY when you get off the plane. PLUS they have added more WiFi access points making it a little easier to get online. Still lacking in the electrical outlets, but hey–most airports are.
I’m am severely disappointed in SeaTAC. You would think that the airport that services so many HiTech employees of companies such as MICROSOFT, and AMAZON and BOEING would deserve FREE WiFi access…but alas, it is not so. SeaTAC gets a C-.
UPDATE: JFK gets a D+. The Airline clubs are where you have to go to have any comfort and there are plenty of AC outlets and internet connections. But other than the clubs, JFK is an absolute DISGRACE.
UPDATE #2: MSP gets a C-. You’d better know where you’re going. No signage anywhere. In the terminal, there are NO OUTLETS!!!
Well, almost anyway. I am actually writing this from the plane–about 35 minutes to go before decent. Dawn is *just* starting to appear over the horizon. I’m sitting in Business class and just finished breakfast. I’m a little disappointed that it’s not a 777, but it’s better than the "back of the bus" (coach).
I land at almost 8am local time and then I have to go through customs and immigration which will probably take another 30 minutes or so. I will probably get to my hotel around 10am and my first session is today at 4pm local time. Doesn’t give me much time to rest, but that’s OK.
This is going to be a busy month–I’m here for a week and then back to Seattle for a few days and then to Phoenix for the Thanksgiving holiday; not to mention that I’ve only been back for a couple of days from speaking at the SharePoint Connections conference in Vegas. I’m travelled out….
I will have a couple of days this time to sightsee, and a lot of stuff was closed the last time I was here–so maybe this time I’ll get to see more stuff. Last time I was here it rained every day as well, so hopefully I’ll get more sunshine 😉
I am out of the office on 4 November for immigration purposes. I will be working from home in the afternoon
So, exactly why is he working i there is an immigration issue? And is he on the run?
I wanted to send an email out to my team: Quick ! Find <co-worker>!
