So far, Taylor’s 5 for 5 on working reserve days this week. When his other pilot friends transferred to ATL, they only got called once or twice during the whole month. Taylor’s had to work every day, and usually only has 90 minutes get dressed, drive, and report to the airport. He is lucky if his schedule is updated online before he gets the crew sched call. It’s going to be a long month if his schedule continues this way. I hope he gets a decent line next month.

My score

For those who only know what’s going on in my life through my blog, I just wanted to let you know that I passed my final!

I got a 78%…which is pretty great. I talked to my advisor who said the 54% passing score on the test was equivalent to a B…so I did great.

I’m still not sure how I did so well. So many of my answers were only guesses. But I’m happy nonetheless.

Tonight is Nikki Forova at Genghis Cohen, then a night on the town in Hollywood with some of my favorite Cali people.

So stinking hot!


This week has been a scorcher! I only have so much tolerance for heat, and I feel like I’m at my wit’s end. It’s hot at home, hot in the car, hot at work….I never seem to feel like I’m at a comfortable temperature. I should be doing homework, packing, cleaning, or anything more productive….but I’m just chilling on my couch in the family room (with the best air conditioner in the house.) I haven’t blogged all week, so I’m going to get caught up.

I had my annual review at work. It went pretty well, except I got a needs improvement in adherence to company policies (i.e. internet, email and cell phone use). I’ve gotta cut down…but it’s so hard! Today was the first day that I didn’t send a text for an entire workday. It was terribly difficult. What else was said? That’s confidential!

Tomorrow I’m heading off to St. George for the Labor Day weekend. I had planned to drive up to SLC, but decided the drive was too long to be the only driver. I told my parents I wasn’t going to come…then they called me and asked if we could meet halfway. Unfortunately, it’s going to be hot there too. But I’ll have a swimming pool at the hotel, and I’ll be with family, so I’ll be fine. I hope to grab some Cafe Rio and Nielsen’s Frozen Custard. I’m toting home as many bags of Dill Pickle Lays that I can find (my coworkers are obsessed!) If you want your chip fix, let me know how many you want.
