Travel home from the Ottawa trip was fraught. The nice Air Canada lady at the Ottawa airport put me on standby for the flight that was an hour earlier (I had gotten to the airport early), so I made it to Toronto with plenty of time before my flight to Seattle! And that flight was running 45 minutes or so late, so fine. Time to get extra tea, to actually sit down and have food, all that good stuff.

After I went through security, passport control, and US Customs, I wandered over to my gate. Finally boarded the plane, aaaand then an announcement: readiness check showed that they needed to change a tire, so all of us needed to deplane and wait in the walkway. A couple of us passengers asked the flight staff, and they said we didn't need to take our carry-on luggage with us, so we all trooped off.

10-15 minutes later, another announcement. Wait, no, we need to go back on the plane, collect our belongings, and go back to the gate.

And then, the waiting. They brought us snacks. They bribed the kids with candy. They bribed the kids with coloring books. THREE HOURS after we were supposed to take off, we finally reboarded the plane. After they did a last-minute reboot of the plane OS.

Have I mentioned that on my flight OUT from Seattle, the plane had to be essentially jump started? Yeah. I don't think I'll be flying Air Canada again.


Last night I went to see The Damned with Rhias! It's the 40th anniversary tour, and it was SO MUCH FUN. Dave Vanian looks like a rock 'n roll version of Vincent Price. I may have squeaked and flailed when he came on stage. Maybe.

And, because it was Easter, they performed "White Rabbit" during an encore. Dave Vanian wore a pair of bunny ears someone had tossed on stage. DAVE VANIAN. BUNNY EARS.

Just in case you didn't see the photos on the other social media sites I hang out on, here's what I wore, and a good shot of my makeup:
