So it was my last morning in Canada, I'm really gonna miss the Rebus boys and Sonja. They were so much fun, and so welcoming. Everyone I seem to meet on this trip has taken me into their homes and made me part of the family, LA is going to be so hard without a mummy figure watching over me. Oh well.
So I got dropped off at the hotel nearby and took the bus to the airport, no problems everything went smoothly, the flight was good. I flew to… goodness I can't even remember; I think it was Salt Lake City? So many flights and connecting flights I don't know if I am coming or going, nevermind knowing which day it is! Haha Well, I got to SLC and had an hour to spare and then boarded the next plane that would take me three hours or so later to LA.
I boarded the plane, and who was I allocated sitting next to? Captain Chunk.Seriously this guy was unnecessarily huge.I was sitting next to the window as it's my favourite spot and so was basically pushed up against it as Captain Chunk spilled out over my seat taking up half my personal space.By this time I was super tired, I had done over 8 flights in less then three weeks and was almost at the point of asking for half my money back considering this ripe ball of lard was taking up half my seat. (I get bitter when I'm tired)
But I realised I was being unreasonable.
Until I sat down.
It was enough to condemn a small child to death, in one vile swoop. How one cannot realise they stink that bad is beyond me. I'm sure he meant no harm and was probably very nice but I was beyond being reasonable and had to put up with the fact that it was going to be a very and I mean very long flight indeed.
Luckily though, Sonja had given me THE MOST amazing book to take my mind off the whole ordeal; 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'.Oh yeah.That's right. It's basically the whole Pride and Prejudice original novel but with the fact that there was a Zombie fiasco amidst and Elizabeth was a trained Zombie killer who battled it out with Mr Darcy , also a trained Zombie killer, and oh you have to read it. It's so good. Of course it's silly but it still contains all the old English diction which therefore makes it quite comical when juxtaposed with the beheading of a puss ridden zombie. Charming.
So I landed and got my bags, LA was hot and it was only around 6pm. I waited till Chris finished work and he came and picked me up.Chris is an old friend of mine from back in the day that lives in LA now and loves it. He offered me a place to crash for a few days to have a look around, get my bearings and also to take me to this job interview that he had lined up for me. Very kind.
To be honest I was shattered and after a couple of beers back at his, I hit the sack, dreaming of stardom and fame, Canadian lakes and Virginian horse trails.
