WestJet Flight 667 from Toronto to Calgary

So, I just went on a nice little vacation.

Last wednesday I hopped on an airplane to Ottawa, and that flight was nice, I was comfortable. We went from Ottawa to Brocksville where I stayed up much of the night watching very repetitive white light flashes (lightning) in the sky outside our window.

Then we headed off to Kingston, for our real destination:: to celebrate my Attfield Grandparents' 65th wedding anniversary. It was awesome. I'm real proud of my family.

You know something interesting? We found and drove down Abbey Dawn Road. Despite being from Napanee, Avril named her clothing line after a stretch of road that's way closer to my grandparents' house than it is to Napanee. Kind of interesting.

So - Today I came back, I got home back to Calgary. Hopped on a plane from Ottawa to Toronto. That was great, fine.

Then it was time for WestJet 667 from Toronto to Calgary. This was the flight from HELL. I'm sure most passengers got along just fine, despite how the satellite TV didn't work the whole flight. My personal issue is this::: I am a big man, I'm 6 feet tall, I weight almost 400pounds, so I need extra leg room.

When we checked in to the flight, there were only 2 PLUS seats available on the flight: right-middle-front and the seat right behind it. My dad chose the front seat for me.

BIG MISTAKE. I AM A BIG MAN. The armrests on the front row aren't adjustable. If I had been seated in the 2nd row, I might've been able to get along, but, alas, I was stuck in the middle seat on the right side of the front row, and I was very uncomfortable for FOUR HOURS STRAIGHT.

I was the first off the plane, but I wasn't the first into the terminal. I couldn't walk very well after getting off that flight. I'm recovering now, still not perfectly recovered, but I am sure glad to be away from that airplane.

That was a very painful 4 hour straight session of sitting in the wrong kind of chair. Not even the movie theatre is that bad for me.

At the time, I figured it must've been some of the worst pain I've ever been in, although it might be hard to compare that kind of physical pain with the terrible emotional pain I once had that lasted for far longer.

Well, it's nice to be home, and now I can recover. Yay.


In other news, it looks like a BETA version of Chain Gang Chase has been released for OUYA. This is great because I helped Kickstart that project.
