Delayed, Bitten, Still Procrastinating

Flight from RDU to CLT delayed. Original departure 11:20 am – actual departure 12:10 pm.

Trip duration 35 minutes.

Landed at 12:45

Ran from gate B to gate E

Just made our 12:59 departure.

Flew around a big T-storm – late landing in Memphis.

3:30 – 8:00 pm stayed in Memphis reviewing presentations.

8:00 pm dinner

9:17 Drove to Tunica

10:00 pm arrived Tunica

10:01 – first mosquito bite while unloading seminar equipment

10:00 – 12:00 am set up sound and projection for seminar

10:00 – 12:09 (fight off at least 10 mosquitoes)

12:10 pm checked into our rooms. Watch coworkers battle SWARMS of mosquitoes At check - they ran out of regular rooms (for me only). I am in a Suite. It has an entrance hall, formal dinning room, living room, spa tub & glassed in shower with two shower heads.

You’d think such a luxurious room would be mosquito free. Apparently they are just BIGGER to match the room.

Worked on data until 1:30 am (2:30 am EST)

5:00 am awake

Take shower in glassed in shower with dual shower heads and leaking glass door.

5:25 – 5:45 am waste time writing this instead of working on data.

5:50 am – stops procrastinating

Show starts at 9:00 am.
