12 of 12

So I'm doing my 17th 12 of 12.  Sorry, it's a work travel day, which means mostly you'll be seeing the ins and outs of multiple state/multiple time zone travel. The exciting life of Blobby.  It also means I was not home, so no picture of Sophie.  Booo.

12 pictures taken on the 12
th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell (thanks Chad!) and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. While he said he would stop it at the end of 2010, it still looks up and running to me, so I'm running with it.

 04:30.  Luggage at door as I head out to the airport.   Yes, 04:30. Probably 04:25.

 05:27.  Gate C22.  Mine is the only flight delayed.  Naturally.

 06:15.  Boarding United Express Jet - Flight 6233 to Denver.

Time Unknown.  Reading the Cleveland Plain Dealer somewhere over the midwest.  The article is on Bone Marrow Donation.

07:10 MST.  Denver International Airport

09:20 MST.  United 971 Denver to San Jose.  Some kind of Airbus. I was in the last row.  Each person on the plane uglier than the last.  What kind of eff'd up world is it when I'm the most attractive person in an airplane.....and you know I don't say that lightly.

11:15 MST/10:15 PST.  Did you know you can listen to air traffic control via that little ear piece that usually plays awful and outdated tunes through the airplane.  I listened for 50 minutes.  Boring to most.  Fascinating to me.

11:15 PST.  San Jose Airport Baggage Claim A1.  I didn't have checked luggage, I was waiting for a co-worker.
16:30 PST.  Some unknown (to me) mountain range in central California.

17:00 PST.  I'm almost ashamed to tell you how far out of my way I drove so I could capture this image.  I saw it on my last trip to CA and was with people who wouldn't have understood.  I knew being a 12 of 12, today was the perfect day to take a side-trip.

18:30 PST.  Monterey Bay
21:15 PST.  Work has gotten in the way of my blogging.  Here is my pic of me getting the 12 of 12 blog post ready for tomorrow.  Yes, this is how the magic happens.

No matching luggage? How gauche.
