    Ah, another weekend in Seattle.

    The last few times that I had traveled to Seattle, I opted to save a few dollars and take the early flights. This meant flying out at 6 AM on a Saturday morning and returning at 6 AM on Monday morning. It also meant I got to the office that Monday and not skip a day at work, thereby saving good deal of dough. But the downside was I was tired for the entire day and I had to wake up at 4 AM for two days out of the week -- not something I enjoy doing.

    So this time I decided to fly out there on a Friday night and return on a Monday night. Sure, I would lose a day at work on Monday, but one has to relax and take a vacation on occasion ... I think. It was also the wekend of the big 49ers/Seahawks football game.
