Okay - so she had a bit of a sunburn...
We flew San Diego to Phoenix (not my favorite, very bumpy), and then Phoenix to Eugene.
We had the most awesome flight attendant on the way home.
The first thing I noticed was that he was wearing Danskos like the kind I use for work. He knew all about the thing Diana is doing, and was thrilled to meet her.
The two of them had tons in common, and she's drawing him as a chibi here.
He was a big Anime/Manga fan, and has attended conventions & done cos-play as well. He basically spent most of the flight talking with Diana (I think he handed out the pretzels a little late) and at the end of the flight, he had her announce the final prep for the passengers on the plane using the phone.
Riki and Diana exchanged webpage info, and I'm sure they'll keep in touch. All these anime kids are like family to each other. They both cheered each other up immensely. Too funny.
Thanks for a great flight Riki! You were fantastic!
