In flight movie

Hard to say when I'll have access to upload an entry, but that breaks the monotony a bit. Who knows what I can collect here until then?

Watched The Ladykillers on my iBook on the flight (first time, of course). Not impressive, but diverting. That's just what airplane DVDs should be.

Brief layover (Tuesday evening) at Chicago O'Hare. Spent quite a bit of time here over the years; I can feel the midwestern influence, though it's hard to put into words. Arriving in Des Moines is unmistakably Iowa: friendly, sleepy, a bit out of step, yet not detrimentally so.

My checked bag is 90% Christmas gifts by weight: coffee and paraphernalia, DVDs, and books, including a huge Civil War atlas. One of these days I'll be smart enough to have things delivered.

Praying for patience. I love my family, and want to love them well, but my impatience always gets in my way.

Chicago O'Hare? You were so close to me!
"a bit out of step"

We like it that way.

precisely. last time i flew long-distance i ended up seeing _the house of sand and fog (one of the most awful movies i have ever seen) and _man on fire_ (which i judged to be an excellent airplane film, although parts were impressive).

Praying for patience. I love my family, and want to love them well, but my impatience always gets in my way. true enough. grace and patience for you. and i know it will come. have a good trip.

you are a wise man. no pun intended. and may you come to the baby jesus in a new way this time, bringing a small gift and finding a new life in return.
i love the feeling of coming home with less than what i brought - like shedding unnecessary things.

Merry Christmas to you! :o]
merry christmas! i hope the holidays go well for you! i'll be heading out tomorrow night, driving 8 hrs to see my family. yes, the lovely midwest.

which gate at O'har were you at?
So, I'm a big fan of the Chicago airport.
