I really have nothing today. I spent the majority of the day packing and in transit to California. I did learn that I haven't heard every excuse for a plane to be delayed. Today, we boarded quickly, the skies were clear and by some miracle, there were no O'Hare related problems. Turns out, not only do you need a pilot, but also a first captain. Since Ted Striker was nowhere to be found, we waited. Since pilots get paid so much, I think I just figured out a way to cut down on costs - Eliminate the 2nd pilot, who obviously doesn't do anything but keep the other guy company. Either that, or just pay someone who is qualified to be friendly and chummy.
