catastrophe. confrontation. celebrity. comforting coinsidence.

i just got back from a trip. my first trip with a handful of stories. so i get all ready to go for my trip on thursday and i get all my stuff together. suitcase. check. cell phone. check. food bag. check. badge. uhhh...... where did i?.... where is my....... and that went on for about 5 seconds before i bust into screams and hysterics. i was like, 'way to go morgan, this is it. all this work and you're fired on your third week. this is it. say goodbye. what are you gonna do now?' basically my whole life flashed in front of my eyes and i'm pretty sure i saw myself walking the streets of baltimore with a will work for diet coke sign. yeah. my almost-put-together-and-clean room was suddenly ripped to shreds by morgan the tazmanian devil in a matter of 3 minutes. i called my supervisor, still in hysterics, and told him i was in biiiiiiiig trouble. and to make a long story short... i got to see just how fast my car goes now to frantically get to the airport in barely enough time to get a new badge and get myself on a plane. one of the most freaked out i've ever been. but then i get on the plane. and i calm down a little bit, and as i make my way to my position on the plane for boarding, i can see there is a little bit of a scuffle going on between some of my passengers. i finally get to the over wing window rows and there is a business man type and a cute old man having a heated discussion about who gets to sit where. in the end, the old man could not sit in the exit row and the business man was not about to give up his well earned extra leg room. so i, in the kindest way i knew how, told the cute old man that he had to move seats. he didnt like this very much. and suddenly, the cute old man, quickly turned into the crochety old man. he started cussing and yelling. "you know, you're a real piece of work buddy.... " it was bad. so i had my first celebrity on board on this trip. it was trishelle from the real world. .......i dont really know if she could really be called a "celebrity". i mean, she got her fame from being a whore. if that's all it takes to be a celebrity, i know a lot of girls from high school who should be really upset because they fit this criteria perfectly. since being gone, i cling to anything texan. anyone who gets on my plane that is wearing texas memorabilia or even a cowboy hat is going to get to talk to me. :-) the other day in LA i was talking to some passengers who were harassing me about my accent. after i finished with them, a girl got my attention and said "did you just say you were from texas? i used to live in dallas" me: oh i live near dallas. her: yeah well i went to baylor and then i moved..... i cut her off, and so excitedly said: i went to baylor too!!! .... so we talked about when we graduated and what we majored in. and then i asked the inevitable, were you in a sorority? her: yeah, i was a pi phi. ...then i had the biggest "OH MY GAWD" moment and had to calm myself down enough to nonchalantly say "me too!" ......... all her drinks that day were free.

make a wish

did anyone else see the make a wish program on ESPN? (of course you didnt. who do i know that would be up at 3am watching random shows on espn?) it was on a few weeks ago. well anyways.... i'm pretty sure i now want to sell all my earthly possessions and give everything to the make a wish foundation. so here's another random question... does anyone know anyone who works for make a wish? or have any connections to them? .... just thought i'd ask.

my life doesnt suck.

so, i've got the greatest job in the world, by the way! i just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. seriously. life has been a whirlwind lately, and i guess it will be like this for a while. in a matter of about a month, everything in my life has changed. i've got a new job. new roommate. new address. new car. new adventures. new state. new schedule. new haircut. new friends. new life. (the word 'new' looks strange after you look at it over and over.) however, this is not to say that i dont miss my friends and family back home..... when i left texas, my mom threw me a surprise party. if you know me at all, i love. love. love. surprises. i like to surprise other people, however, its very hard to surprise me, but if anyone could do it, it would be mom. it was great. karen came and 'kidnapped' me for the afternoon, and when i walked back into my house, everyone that has ever meant anything to me was standing in my living room. it was amazing. my two best friends in the entire world both drove in to come to it. it meant the absolute world to me. i was bouncing off the walls for the next week. i was truly surprised, and will always be truly grateful to mom for doing that for me!

its so funny when people call me, they always sound so surprised that i answer the phone. i'm not gone ALL the time, guys! right now, i'm only working about 15 days out of the month. i dont have any really fun stories yet. my last trip, i had a flight with about 100 athletes from the special olympics. i'm pretty sure this will forever be one of my favorite flights. they were so fun, and so kind. their coaches thanked us for our generosity towards them, but i told them that they were kinder and better passengers than every customer i had had that week. they were just so excited to be on a plane. they all raised their hands in the air, roller coaster style, when we took off.

i miss you guys. please keep in touch.
