I'm headed to San Francisco and on to the Santa Cruz Developmental Biology Meeting.
Everyone seems more than a bit grumpy. The flight attendants are snappy, the passengers, after a ridiculous security line, an "issue with boarding," and an overbooked flight, are venomous, and the screaming infant in front of me seems to think she's being boiled alive in oil. Good morning!
Two years ago I made the same trip. I can't remember if there were any travel issues. All I remember is the great science, amazing weather, and Fantastic time playing in San Fran with M and J. I'm sure my memories of this trip will be the same.
But at the moment I'm all back of the bus, and not with the cool kids.
