Up to no good

Had an appointment this past Thursday to finalize my application for TSA Pre status.  When they opened it up to everyone a while back, I signed up, but then couldn't make an appointment because I was caring for Jay.  The appointment was a breeze - they verified my information and fingerprinted me, then scanned my passport.  In 3 weeks, I'll know if I qualify.

While I can't do much, if any, travel this year due to budgetary and time constraints, it will be nice to be in the fast lane through security once I can travel again.

I spent the Fourth of July night over at former housemate Nancy's house, soothing the dog as the neighborhood exploded in fireworks, and watching season 1 of Castle.  It was a lovely evening.

Laying low again today. I have a beastly headache that has no apparent cause, so I've dosed myself up appropriately and will probably spend the day doing a little house cleaning and watching Harry Potter.  Or I may read some Philip K. Dick - I'm wrestling with a story idea that has a lot in common with some of his identity paranoia works, and I'm thinking a  little inspiration is in order.

Might be too heavy for today, though.

  1. Wherever inspiration arises, it should be welcomed. I am bereft of of the breath of God of late.

  2. I was chosen for TSA Pre-Check on the return trip from Portland and it did much to make the experience more pleasant. I'd sign up in an instant if I planned to fly much. Enjoy!

  3. I keep getting (happily) singled out for Pre-Check even though I've never applied for it. I'm not sure why.

  4. They are giving it to people who aren't signed up for it as a way to make travelers aware of the program. It's the TSA version of "here kid, the first one's free."
