In which I call shenanigans on United Airlines

Tuesday, March 25 - Wednesday, March 26 When I woke up on Tuesday morning, I checked my flight status and discovered that my flight from San Francisco to Chicago was delayed something ridiculous like 4.5 hours. So I called United and asked them to change this in some way, even if it involved putting me on a different airline. "Okie doke," the operator replied (although perhaps not in those words), and she booked me on a US Airways flight leaving slightly earlier that would take me through Charlotte instead. However, she told me, I would have to stop by the...

'I've taken this boat many places. Miami. Tokyo. Denver.'

I had a whole lot of stuff to write about my wonderful trip to San Francisco (a bajillion years ago) and the not-so-wonderful travel in order to get there, but there's just too much to say and not enough time to write it all. I will try to do it bit by bit rather than writing it all in one go, and return to the land of the blogging. Jday, you win! Thursday, March 20 I set off for the airport several hours early, with the idea that as long as I was going for a long drive to the...

I chose... poorly

I just discovered a blog entry that I wrote down on my way back from Acapulco and forgot to publish. It was over-dramatic and therefore worth publishing a few weeks late. Here goes: Here let it be known that on this, the twenty-second of June, two thousand and seven, I did experience the most egregious trespass of the Srah Tea-Making Code that I have come across in my long (although now probably shortened) life. The offender in this case is Harold, a Continental Airlines flight attendant who did, with malice aforethought (whatever that means) put milk and sugar in the...

Let us all take our pennyfarthing bicycles to the aero-port!

I am equidistant from the Cincinnati and Dayton airports, but I usually prefer flying out of Dayton.

Get these m*f*ing drinks off my m*f*ing plane!

All this hullabaloo about liquids on planes is making me even more paranoid than I usually am. I spend more time than I should during flights thinking about ways that, if I were a terrorist, I could kill people or hijack a plane using things I carried-on or things that were already on the plane when I got there. They'll confiscate your nail clippers, but I once got an in-flight meal that came with a plastic fork and spoon and a metal knife. Nice, airline. It was pretty rounded and dull, but I bet I could get a file on...

Foul, fetid, fuming, foggy Philadelphia (airport)

To my great surprise, I went to Philadelphia last week. I'd known for weeks that I was going to Pennsylvania, but I hadn't realized that the town I was going to is basically a suburb of Philadelphia and that my hotel was even within the city limits. So I apologize to all of you Brotherly Love Citizens that I did not warn you of my impending arrival. I thought I was going to some town a ways out from Teh Big City. And who knew that cities on the east coast had trains and things like public transportation? It somehow...

One of these things is not like the other

States that I thought I would be going to/through today, as of going to bed last night: OhioKentuckyNew Jersey States that Delta Airlines thought I would be going to/through today, as of some time before 4:59am, which is when they called me and woke me up to tell me my Cincinnati-Newark flight had been cancelled but they had everso kindly rescheduled me on another, ultra-convenient flight: OhioKentuckyGeorgiaNew Jersey States that I will now be going to/through today, after having said "Hells naw, biatch!" to the airline: OhioKentuckyNew YorkNew Jersey The most frustrating thing is that all of the Delta employees...
