very early

It's not very early when I'm writing this, but it will be very early when this is published. I'm getting smart and creating my post for Saturday right now, before bed, while I can still form coherent thoughts. Our flight leaves at 7:30am and we are leaving for the airport at 5:30am and we don't land in Orlando until way late Saturday night. If I don't crank this out now, it probably won't get done.

As we all know, I'm not a good flier. But this time I have a plan. This time I'm not going to get sick or nauseous thanks to my discovery of these bracelets. Let's all say it together "These are not a load of crap. They will work, they will work" Thanks, I needed to know I had your support in thinking these would be effective.

Supposedly the bracelets hit an acupressure point in your wrist and calm upset stomachs. Normally I would think that is a load of crap, but I do like my acupuncturist, and while she did not suggest this, I like to think that what she does for a living in not a load of crap. My back has been feeling better lately, so she must be doing something right.

I never used to get motion sick as a kid. I could read in cars and not have a problem. I could ride every roller coaster at AstroWorld and not want to puke. But sometime between 20 and 22 the motion sickness button was flipped in me and even the most tame ride could get my head lodged in a toilet. If the bracelets work on the plane I'm going to try wearing them to DisneyWorld. Maybe I'll get to ride the Tower of Terror, which looks like just the kind of ride that could make me ill for the rest of the day.

Or maybe the bracelets won't work and I'll puke all over jparks. Either way I'm sure it'll be a good time.

edit: I worte that other stuff last night. Now it's 430 in the morning and I now know that being awake this early in the morning sucks. sucksucksucks. It's hard to form clear thoughts at this hour. nbk jt;hsr©ˆ´®t ajhgnbz fdlk/gbl. Time to shower...


  1. Not the Tower of Terror! I rode on that during my high school Grad Night back in 1995. Nearly barfed up a lung. That's the ride that made me realize I hate the sensation of falling.

  2. When Nathan has to get up early for a flight like that, his mild mannered self stays in bed and the new, awake Nathan "hates everything!!!"

  3. [...] Since I’m flying out of San Jose at 4:30 in the morning, I’m again, pre-writing my post for the day. [...]
