NERD ALERT!!!!!!

My new favorite hobby?

...monitoring the EuroAirport website so that I can tell where the planes are going to/coming from while I watch them from our balcony taking off/landing at Basel Airport.

I am officially old, and Mrs. TBF is officially embarrassed.

Oh...here comes the Air France flight from Lyon in for a landing...

Don't laugh. At least I've accomplished something today!

What did you accomplish today?

I don't think that is so weird. Now if you could not watch the flights, it may be creeping into the strange category. TMS' ruling is "not old or weird, but anally retentive."

OK, this totally makes me laugh. You're such a geek!

To be fair, however, I do often say to myself "I wonder where that plane is going?" as I see them flying overhead from EuroAirport...

TMS - It's also not as weird as that guy that Steve Dahl has a tape of who used to record himself commenting on what's going on when he's inside an airplane while it's taking off. Remember? He was taping when the plane semi-crashed during takeoff, and he kept taping while he was jumping down the emergency slide AND while running away from the plane.
Now THAT'S weird!

Gretchen - I've told Mrs. TBF (and maybe I've told you) that you remind me of my sister. My sister says "You are such a geek!" to me all the time. Weird!

I used to love seeing what I could see from Village Neuf - it's like 5 mins drive to the airport. But I didn't look up the website... LOL

I can't comment on your nerdiness. I'm the guy painting plastic space marines and reading the rumors of up coming Apple computers. Welcome to the dark side TBF!

Finding a couple more Basel based bloggers is my achievment of today!!
