ever miss a flight before? well now i have.
though i arrived, checked in and found a seat in the airport lounge (my dad gave me a guest pass) i managed to completely fuck up my boarding time by an hour. the result of a few days of sporadic sleep and me generally being retarded. somehow i got it in my head that the departure time for the flight was actually the boarding time. so imagine how awesome it felt to get out of my seat and check the flight board only to see that my flight had just left. pretty fuckin awesome.
i managed to get on an afternoon flight which is good. what isn't good is that my friend is expecting to meet me there upon him arriving. we had a cab/shuttle ride booked together and i have no way of getting a message to him that i won't be there.
so yea, what a great way to start a trip.
