Chapter 5 of the Locket Blog The Journey Begins


Pennywearing the LocketThe Journey Begins

I’m getting ready for my trip to Iceland of all places.  I always thought my first trip abroad, I always wanted to say that, would be someplace hot.  You know somewhere like Mexico, the Bahamas or maybe Hawaii.  But the internet says it should be in the mid 70’s during the day so that will be fine.  I’ll bring my coat and get to wear my winter boots.  Leonard likes me in boots and I love to wear them.  Speaking of Leonard he’s made all the flight arrangements and should be at the airport when I get in.  There is the rub though it’s a very long flight.  I leave from LAX in the late morning and fly to Denver.  Then at 5:30 I get on the plane to Reykjavik arriving at 6:30 the next morning.  I’ve never flown overnight on a plane before.  I’m nervous, what if I snore? I’ll keep working on the blog as I go.

My class has started a new social network this week, Twitter.  I’ve read other peoples Twitter feeds before and I’m a little worried about what to write.  I did tie my Twitter feed into my blog so as I tweet things it should show up.  Howard helped me get it all set up yesterday.  Though Sheldon has been well Sheldonish why Leonard’s been gone Bernadette and Howard have been great.  I’ve been to their apartment for dinner and just to hang out.  Sometimes Raj is there but mostly he has been woman hunting with his new found speaking ability.  I don’t think he is doing very well at it yet.  With his only experience being Howard’s wingman all these years he has a lot of bad habits to lose.

So look for my first Tweet. I’ll try to blog some more from Denver while I wait for my flight.

I’ve made it to Denver. I had to go back through security but found my gate at last.  Still have 3 hours until my plane boards.  So let me tell you about the creep in the seat next to me from LA.  When he first sat down I noticed he was attractive.  I also noticed he had on a wedding ring.  Then after a few minutes I noticed the ring is gone.  There is the faint line on his finger not quite as tan as it should be.  He works for some tech company in sales and I got to hear all about it.  He was pretty crestfallen when I told him that I was on my way to see my scientist boyfriend in Iceland.  I had to make it very clear I would not like to spend a few days in Denver.  Oh and that I don’t date married men.  Like I said creep.  It just reminded me again why I’m with Leonard.  No lies or BS he’s just a real person with all his flaws and little mannerisms.  I’m so done with suave guys and their line of garbage.  Viva la Nerds.

Now that said I can’t wait to see Leonard.  My hand goes up to the locket around my neck every time I think about him.  I ignored mister creep most of the flight after that and looked at Skymall then the airline magazine.  Luckily it was a quick flight.  I need to pick up a magazine here before my next flight.

Blog at you soon.

I’m in the Airport at Keflavik outside of Reykjavik heading for the baggage area.

I see Leonard on the other side of the ropes, he has a sign like a driver he’s holding up. It says Penny I Love You.
