My plane was two hours late leaving Chicago, which meant that I got in around 12:30 AM local (2:30 AM my time). Then Hertz's computers were down for nightly maintenance -- which they apologized for! -- and they didn't have a Taurus, so I'm driving a Ford Expedition.

The flight itself was pretty awful, because I'd eaten something that had upset my stomach and I was producing a ton of gas that was taking it's own sweet time coming out at reduced cabin pressure. *sigh*

By the time I got to the hotel and finally fell into bed, it was 3 AM local. This would have been tolerable, if not for the 7:30 AM wake up call.

On the other hand, the session I'm at is excellent. If only I were awake.
