Back from Wincon....  
Tired, zombie-like, and trying to process work email and the little bits of ruckus that popped up while I was gone.

Also trying to decide on titles for a long-overdue fic that needs posting and for an LAS entry.

The trip was great, the Chicago->Denver part of the flight back not so good (seat-grip-level turbulence). Now I'm being peppered with questions about birthday menu options and whether I have any last-minute gift ideas, when in fact I have NO ideas about ANYTHING right now that rise above the coherence of "Huh?"

I didn't know you were flying through Denver. Flying into DIA is definitely interesting. I've been on white-knuckle flights (where the girl sitting next to me actually clutched my hand) and then there are times where it's a textbook landing.

Sorry you caught Denver on a bad day...

I used to go through Denver all the time, flying from Peoria, IL. to Eugene/Portland Oregon. I usually took Frontier (like this trip!), and everything goes through Denver. My final trip from Peoria, Frontier had gone under and I had to use a different airline. I'm glad they recovered.

Turbulence is never fun, but better than people biting their nails over the issues of snow on the runway. Though since that's a yearly event, you'd think the airport people would be used to it!

The pilot who flew into Denver made one of those landings where you wonder if the wheels are going to snap off. Which prompted thoughts about whether co-pilots ever rat out pilots for things like that... The landing in Sacramento on the last flight was smooooth-- the slight bounceback of the plane was the only hint that we'd made runway contact.
