ABQ Connection

There are many things to like about Albuquerque. I just found three more. First, I just learned that, here in the Albuquerque airport (ABQ), they offer FREE wireless internet. None of the "for your convenience, you can get internet access at the low, low fee of $79.99 per hour" garbage here. It's free. No charge. Costless.

Second, to go with the free wifi, they have long tables with sturdy chairs...and just in front of the tables, on the wall, are dozens and dozens of plugs. So (if I had not packed my power cord), I would sit here for hours working on my computer.

Finally, they sell Fresca at the outlets in the airport.

I take these to be signs from the bright side that I should move here. Despite the snow from this morning. And in spite of the cost of gas. And regardless of the cost of housing. The food has already convinced me that I have a deep connection to the culinary subculture of the area (though I probably want to keep my connection just as distant as it is now). Now, I find that I have connections to their airport management team.

I feel a magical giddiness sweeping over me...this could be... No, I can't let myself get too caught up in the glory of the moment. Not now. Not today.

My favorite thing about Albuquerque is spelling it.

Truth be told, I prefer Socorro and Hatch to Albuquerque, but I do like the spell ABQ, too!
