On the road again

I’m now more-or-less packed for my trip to Laredo to find an apartment; all I have left to do is pack last-minute stuff way too early in the morning. For some reason Delta isn’t letting me check in for my flight online (I think the reservation is messed up in their computers because it was originally booked on a Northwest itinerary so I could use a credit voucher), but I figure that’s not particularly important since I have a seat assignment already and have to check a bag anyway, so it’s not like checking in online will save me much time.

Good luck. Have any leads


Actually, you’ll never get to check in on-line again. I sent your name to the FBI as an associate of bin Laden….you’re on the watch lists. Merry Christmas.

Seriously, good luck with an apt.

Is it a bad sign that I went to and put in absolutely no restrictions and it came back with 4 complexes? To top that, only 1 had a pic; though, the Carmel Apts read nice.|0&landmark_id=&mode=search&searchtype=city&pte=PERSON.REGISTRATION


Alfie: Yeah, in terms of recent construction there isn’t a big selection to pick from. But I found a place nonetheless. Carmel looked nice too, but it’s a bit inconvenient for school and the wrong side of an interchange that’s probably going to be under construction for the next two decades.

Scott: Thanks, I appreciate it. More than likely it was because my ticket looked like a one-way on Delta to their computers (I booked via a codeshare with Northwest so I could use a NW credit voucher).

Well hopefully you won’t be an apt dweller for too long once you get all settled in and become a card carrying Texican.

As for travel, we’ve got this crazy new travel policy where any ticket over $500 has to be approved by the CEO‘s secretary. I’ve got to go to Philly for the week of the 29th (leaving on a Sunday, mind you) and the nonstop is $520 (my luck) while the AirTran is $466 w/ about 5 hours of total layover time. I guess I’ll find out this morning if my Sunday afternoon plus 5 hours are worth $54. Did I mention I have to leave on a Sunday?
