on the road again

So, I’m back from Italy. I know, I know. I owe you a post and a whole bunch of photos. Needless to say, it was delicious, literally and metaphorically. Calvi (where the wedding was) and Rome are very different from one another. One expansive and rural, the other a cramped maze of ancient and contemporary. But more on that later.

Right now I’m sitting in be airport in Philadelphia, waiting for a flight to Albany. I’m getting picked up by Sean (sorry; no link ’cause this is being written on my phone) and we’re headed to baby-got-Rhinebeck to see friends and hang with the knitterati.

(May I rant about USAir? My 6:10am flight cross-country was charging for all drinks. Am I spoiled by United? Some nuts or a free cup of water perhaps? There was no time to grab a coffee before my flight so as soon as I got off the plane here, I devoured a pretzel, downed a bottle of water and inhaled a sugar raised Dunkin Donut – my first job in high school. Now I’m settling down with a latte, contemplating whether or not I need somehong with spinach from Sbarro. I’m not gong hungry on this next flight!)

If you’re at Rhinebeck, catch me tomorrow out and about with Miss Scout, Sean or Dr. Mel. I’ll be the guy with a shaved head who doesn’t spin.

    yes you may rant……..but from the “inside” I’ll tell you: you may have had to pay for your drinks but your plane was the most strickly maintained and your pilot was the most serious and professional pilot in today’s transportation industry AND may have been my BROTHER……….hee hee 🙂

    I’m not 100% certain cuz I totally suck at names but I think it might be possible that we met on Saturday – Scout introduced us – I’m the chick that knows more secrets about her spending habits than her husband does. ;o)) Anyway, it was great to meet you! :o)

    Hey Stephen! (this is lisa, I met you in Mel and David’s booth at Rhinebeck) I called home and got my bro’s address in SF… he’s on Steiner St. So if you see him, say hi (looks a little like me, but then he also looks a little like you… so if you see our hybrid out there, it’s him). Sorry to miss you on Sunday. I wanted to gab about something to knit for the bro. I thought he had said a sweater might be ok, so I looked around for some yarn, and then he said he never said such a thing. Doesn’t want a scarf… then I thought maybe socks. But by then the only socrates left was purple, and bro is not a purple guy. Nice to meet you, hope you had a great time in NY.
