Home sweet home

I'm home tonight after a day of travel. The girls hugged and pulled at me, the baby didn't scream at the sight of my face... good homecoming.

Today my brown boyfriend and I were informed that we had been selected for random additional screening. Apparently this happens to him basically every time he flies, but it was a first for me. (Did the woman at the desk who fulfilled our seats-together request put a little note in the computer or what?) Anyway, it was unpleasant to say the least. They went through my purse, they patted me down as if I had weapons concealed... Ugh. But don't misunderstand me, I am all for airport security, since it is, you know, random and all.

''Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.''

Neither of us was running on much sleep and we had to connect in Dallas (hey, Andi!) which was a pain in the butt considering how close it is to Austin by plane and how short the total flight is generally. I became so delirious I was laughing hysterically at everything Boyfriend said and pretending to pick my nose and put it in his drink. I mean, seriously.

Welcome to my world. My family and I got star service treatment by some cocksucker border guards between New York and Ontario. It ain't easy being brownish.
