this is now the longest extended pictorial metaphor i have ever endeavored to...endeavor. (remember the endeavor space shuttle?) well, this picture isn't that shuttle. and i landed and john f. kennedy airport, not space center. but you get the idea. i have arrived safely in new york. but let me give you one more piece of advice. if you've been traveling in south ameria for a long time, you've probably gotten sick of watching your bags so closely all the time. you might think "hey, i'm in an airport now--i can relax about that!" you'd be wrong. if you are me, your being wrong means that several people's gifts went to some other opportunistic passenger on my flight to the united states of all that is good and great and wonderful and truly awesome in the world. that person would like to thank you all for your generosity.
i'll probably still update this for awhile because i like it when people are listening to me.
