fear of flying?

for the first time ever, i did not have a minor panic attack during the take off section of my flight home from brisbane!! i will admit to feeling a little queasy as we bumped our way through some clouds, but i did not have the armrest gripping desire to close my eyes and disappear! no guarantees it will never happen again but i was proud of myself today! i still felt the usual utter joy as the wheels touched down at the other end - that is a feeling that i will always want to happen.

i can highly recommend blogmeets. it was so lovely to spend time with someone i have only previous known in the virtual plane. nisi is just as fun to chat to in real time as she is to chat with online. now when we chat, i'll have an updated mental picture of her surroundings.

monday madness! otto says 'It's spring here in Michigan, but the weather today does not reflect that. My inspiration for this week's questions came from my mom suggesting the subject be SPRING! Thanks, Mom!! And thank you all for playing!! =)'

1. What season are you in right now?
2. Do you celebrate anything special this time of year?
not really - perhaps the end of summer...
3. Name 3 things that come to mind when you think of spring (or your current season)?
spring? restless, move house, change jobs.
autumn? cooler, get to wear long sleeve, daylight saving ends

4. In the current season, about how many hours of the day are daylight hours?
i don't know...
5. Do you do any 'spring cleaning?'?
not really
6. Do you wash your own car or take it to the car wash?
neither, don't have a car
7. Do you hang your laundry out on a clothesline on nice days?
no, i cannot be sure that it wont be stolen...

   ...and the following is optional; although I do encourage you
   to participate:
   8. Post a picture that reflects the current season where
   you live.
