Giving Vegas a Run for its Money

I will let my unnecessarily histrionic Twitter timeline speak for what all it takes to leave Vegas and return to Detroit, but I will add this. I have this wild, crazy, dream, and that dream is that one day I will get on an airplane and it will take me to my designated destination, and only my designated destination, sometime in the ballpark of my designated arrival time. The only ridiculous thing a plane I've been on hasn't done yet is drop clean out of the sky, and given my unremitting track record I'm beginning to think it's only a matter of time.

Also, of all the places I've tried to curl up, cold, hungry and exhausted, Chicago-Midway probably ranks toward the bottom--and the exotic locales it has to contend with include midnight on the pavement outside of a bus station in Michigan, in the rain. >:( Shoutout to every other airport ever (except for Pulkovo) for not being MDW! Go you!

Will attempt to re-join society tomorrow.
