jfk bits

well, i'm at the jfk airport in nyc. waiting to board my plane to burlingotn, vt.
i forgot to pack my nice shoes.
i'm scanning the faces of the people waiting at the gate with me. i'm trying to find the writers. i think i found one! a fellow wearing a I LOVE BILLY COLLINS t-shirt. he must be going to bread loaf. or hell.
i'm kinda of nervous.
my breakfast: a green apple & a snapple. the price: a little under five bucks.
i totally forgot that everybody gets a roommate at bread loaf. i haven't had a roommate in years. it will be strange sharing a room with a stranger.
oh, oh, oh, i see someone holding an AWP tote. wait, it's an AWWP tote. what the hell is AWWP?
i just saw one of the pilots walk by. he's cute. big bald spot but cute.
i have to give a five minute reading while i'm at bread loaf. yes, you read that correctly. FIVE minutes. ha. each scholar only gets five mintues because there's like 15 of us.
i almost forgot to pack my notebook.

Hope you have a great time! And hope you bring back gossip for the rest of us :)
Seriously, you're going to rock that five minutes!

I've got a big bald spot . . . but I'm not a pilot.

Have fun!

If this were facebook, I'd "like" this.

I'd love to see the two of you hanging out together, Leslie and Eduardo. Wish I was there.

I didn't realize at the time what a luxury my *8 minutes* to read at Sewanee was!

Damn, Leslie stole what I was going to say. "he must be going to bread loaf. or hell." That's the best thing I've read in months!
