Musings, deliberations, flashes of unaccounted for brilliance…

Another morning on the heavenly highway

At the airport again, a fine place for blogging. The strike is over in schools, but airport security workers are still striking and that makes for long lines at the airport. Except, the travel agent told me yesterday (as she tuned into the webcam at Oslo airport for a peek), so many people have cancelled their flights that there is actually less of a wait than normal. Still, I thought I should be out and about early rather than late.

Oh, it was early all right. I ordered the taxi for 5:30. Set my alarm for 4:19. Turned off my light to go to sleep at midnight. Not quite the recipe for beauty sleep. But my bag was packed: a hundred exam papers, sunglasses, wallet, gum, phone… at the last minute I decided to bring the airbook. Is it ridiculous to bring a computer every time you are out and about? What if I need it? What would I need it for? Just because I have it doesn’t mean I have to use it. But why bring it along then? Isn’t the point in a lightweight (relatively) portable computer that you can bring it along even if you don’t use it?

In the end that final logic won. So here I sit. Instead of grading one or two of my hundred (or was it two hundred?) exams in the hour I have to dispose of, I whip out my airbook and BLOG. I am in the habit of blogging from airport waiting rooms, and despite the extreme boisterous laughter of a herd of shorts-clad eager Norwegians heading to the Spanish riviera at this early hour, there is a certain comfort in the feeling of anonymity and solitude that I find in airport waiting rooms. 

Until the electronic ding and announcement to board…

ha det så lenge!
