What is Alex Smith doing right now? Jan. 28

hey girl - USA TODAY Sports

Alex Smith always believes in being prompt. He also doesn't have a lot to do.

I bought this little Moleskine book at the gift shop, because it's important to write down your thoughts and also I don't really feel like getting my computer out of the computer bag. It's bad enough they make you take it out when you have to go through the X-Ray machine. What is WITH airport security, am I right, Moleskine book?

I figured I should jot down my thoughts, since I'll be here a while. My flight isn't til 2 p.m. and I got to the airport at 11 p.m. on Sunday night (always get there early!) and it's just after midnight now. The guy who runs the shop where I bought this book was trying to close his shop but I told him I just wanted this one thing. He was still pretty peeved. Seems like I can't do anything without making someone upset anymore. [frowny face]

Quarterbacking is neat. You get to throw the football and

So I had plenty of cold cuts yesterday but I was still pretty bummed that when I got to the airport the Cinnabon was closed. It's 2013 and we can't get a 24-hour airport Cinnabon? I don't even know any more.

It's about 2 a.m. and I watched a couple of episodes of It's Always Sunny on my iPad. Those guys are so mean to each other! Kind of reminds me of ... well, of you-know-who and me. Only way meaner. And with a lot more cusses! I have to take a break from all that negativity. I don't need any more in my life right now. [frowny face] I have such a hard time typing on my dumb iPad. I'm glad I bought you, book. You're doing a great job.

Well I tried a couple of episodes of Breaking Bad. Oh no, that show is even WORSE! Yikes! People like this? It just made me feel so bad I got a stomach ache. I really need to find something more upbeat. I'll see what I have in my queue. Hmmm there's a show called Hoarders which I guess is about collectibles? Sounds fun!

OH NO

Well I managed to sleep for a few hours and then wandered around at 6 a.m. waiting for places to open. Not really sure what I'm in the mood for so I might just try a little bite from a few different places. Started with a scone from Starbucks! Pretty good!

-----

The breakfast scramble from Jody Maroni's Sausage Kingdom was sort of heavy on the egg and light on the sausage but overall it was surprisingly bland. Glad I also got chips.

-----

Cinnabon finally opened! Picked up a regular one and also some dippin' sticks for later.

-----

The Double Croissan'wich from Burger King is better than I remember! I would say it's highly recommended but you're a book and can't eat.

-----

That was a really big breakfast burrito that the diner served. Not sure if it was worth $12 but it was REALLY big.

i need to get a hold of myself

Well, it's about an hour until boarding starts. I'm pretty excited! A whole week in New Orleans! Seems like months since I've been able to have a real vacation. And at the end of it all: the Super Bowl. Wow. Pretty neat. I can think of something that would make it neater, though. No, not Cinnabon. But oh well. Maybe some other time. I hope.
