Worst flight ever, and not because of the plane

The flight from MSP to SEA was not good. The plane was fine, but the occupants were not.

I had a mom behind me who wedged her kid's car seat in between my seat and the kid's, meaning every kick that kid made I felt for three hours. And honestly, that wasn't the worse of it.

The college kid next to me had the plague. His nose was like a leaky faucet, and the sneezing and coughing never ended. When we landed, he called his grandmother, and told her, "Yeah, I still have a fever, and I don't feel any better." Seriously, what was this kid doing getting on a plane?

I'm trying not to freak out. I hosed down as soon as I got to the hotel (the lovely Hilton Bellevue, thanks Microsoft). I do plan to try and stay up a bit, so I'm not up at 5 a.m., and so I can do some basic review of stuff people ask in interviews that one generally doesn't think about often.

I love the skyline of this city. :)

Hey Jeff-

I'm likely a day late posting this, but, I hope everything at MS goes/went exceptionally well. I think MS would be an awesome company to work for, and I'm sure they'll come away with the impression that you'd be a very solid addition to their team.

You absolutely can do this!!
