Yesterday, I sat.

2 hours in the airport shuttle.

5 1/2 hours in an airplane seat.

2 hours for my sister's play.

Also yesterday I discovered the world's biggest impending threat -- clouds. "Clouds?", you ask? Yes. Their quiet. Docile. But don't let their cottonball appearance offset you. They are quite large. And dangerous. Carnivorous. They stalk above the lands unnoticed, casting their heavy (well, light actually but for literary purposes) shadows upon the neighborhoods' naivete. They're invading, growing in numbers. They'll hit us when we least expect it. Believe me. And it'll be more than rain. And thunder and lightning.

It's certainly weird to be home.
