Enough about me…

An Airline Captain went out on a first date with a girl who, of course, he hoped would become his girlfriend. He took her to a nice restaurant for dinner. They sat down and ordered their meal.

Since she didn’t start right up with conversation, he decided to start talking. He talked… and talked… He told his life story… he talked, and talked, and talked, all about himself…

For a few minutes, she enjoyed hearing about him. As the minutes grew to a half an hour, and then an hour, she became less interested. She couldn’t get a word in edge wise. She grew more and more irritated, finally becoming so irritated that, after nearly three hours, the self-absorbed Captain finally took notice.

“Enough about me,” he said, “let’s talk about airplanes.”

        Hi Varrin! Nice to meet you. I only wish that I could get paid to fly!!! I just do it for fun now. I did my Private in a Warrior and my Instrument in an Archer so I’ve developed a thing for low wing airplanes! Although I don’t have a Multi engine rating yet ($), I’ve been gaining some experience from the right seat in a CE-402C. We fly the plane’s owner from Morristown, NJ (MMU) to Chatham, MA (CQX) and back. It takes about an hour each way. I currently work at an FBO at Teterboro, NJ. It gives me the opportunity to meet interesting people. When John Travolta came through here, we spent about 25 minutes talking about airplanes, my flight training etc. He seems like a real nice guy.
        Politicaly, I’m slightly to the right of G. Gordon Liddy (on most issues)! I hope that doesn’t scare you!
        Take care,
        Ben

          Ahh, your comment makes me think I need to put up the 4 tiers of aviation in my journal some day. You’re wishing for the 3rd tier. Aim higher 😉
          Liddy doesn’t scare me. I’m a libertarian (actually anarcho-capitalist / with personal pacifist leanings) so I’m allllll the way to the right and allllllll the way to the left, at the same time 😉

            Hey Varrin!
            My friends tell me that my views are much more in line with the Libertarian party than the Republicans. I find that I agree with them but I’m scared of some limousine liberal New Jersey Democrat who wants to ban firearms, general aviation (yea, they actually have a problem with that too) and raise my taxes even further taking advantage of my vote going to a candidate who stands no mathematical chance of winning the election.
            I’m so curious; What are the four tiers of aviation?
            Ben

          • varrin says:

            Ahhh the four tiers of aviation. I’ll put that in an entry now 😉

    • You shoulda been at Sun n Fun. 😉

      • n115bk says:

        Hi there Gentlemaitresse! I’ve heard of Sun -n- fun but not too much about it. Is it like a Pilot Getaway… Spring break style or something like that? Did you go? If so, was it “fun”?
        Take care,
        Ben

        • It’s the second largest fly-in in the world, and it takes place every spring in Lakeland, FL. I attended this year for the first time, and I had a blast!
          I’m a student pilot, but there were a few cute pilot chicks there. 🙂

          • n115bk says:

            That sounds great! I think that I’ll include that in my travel plans for next year. It might be easier then anyway as I’m probably going to relocate to Florida soon. I’m heading to Clearwater and then Orlando this week and I want to check out the job and home buying opportunities there (and of course do the Disney thing…again!).
            How is your flight training coming along? I have so many memories from my student pilot days, heh heh 🙂 !!!!!
            Ben

          • How is your flight training coming along?
            Expensive! I need to find a boyfriend with CFI cert. LOL
            For how long will you be in Florida?

          • n115bk says:

            LOL !!! Ya, I’ll just bet Male CFIs meet a lot of cute student pilot chicks!!!! It took me two years to get my Private Pilot done because I just kept running out of money! For my Instrument rating, I saved up all the money that I needed up front and it went a lot quicker that time! It’s funny, my first of two CFIs for the Private was a girl. She was cute but wouldn’t date her students, we hung out as friends though… a bunch of us, students and instructors etc.
            I’ll be in Florida from 28 APR – 05 MAY. I can’t wait to go! I have had enough of this cold Wx!!! Actually, I can’t stand New Jersey anymore and I would love to look at it’s reflection in my truck’s rear view mirror one… final… time!!!!!!
            I noticed the link for the Libertarian Party in your profile. I’m guessing that we have similar political leanings so you may understand why I dislike New Jersey so much!! I’m also not a yankee (in my heart anyway)!!!

          • So why are you coming to Florida? Vacation? Business? Job hunt?

          • n115bk says:

            This trip will be primarily a vacation. I do want to just check out the FBOs at St. Pete and Orlando / Kissimee. I just want to look around, introduce myself and ask about what I can expect to earn etc. Other than that along with going to the beach in Clearwater, I guess that I’m just a big kid at heart because I love Disney, the rides etc. Besides flying, What do you like to do for fun?

          • I scuba dive, lift weights, ride my bike, kayak and canoe, dance (swing, Latin, ballroom, CW, etc.), snorkel, and I’m learning to sail.
            I haven’t been to Disney in about 15 years. 🙂

          • n115bk says:

            Pretty cool, I scuba dive too! Well, I haven’t done it for a couple of years. I need to get my tanks hydrostatic tested and my regulators checked out. I just bought a new bike, a Canondale 400 that I really enjoy riding. I had gone about twenty years without a bike and now I feel like a kid again!
            Wow, learning to sail at the same time!? How far along in your flight training are you?
