Flying to DC, but accidentally started to board a Raleigh flight… And no one even stopped me! It’s like a plot from a cliche comedy.
my brilliant plan: fly to DC (for a total of 3 hrs) tomorrow afternoon for a wedding. probably foiled by this.
Sitting here in the nyc blizzard watching Lost. It’s reminding me that a sunny, warm island has problems, too.
if i were going to apply for a new credit card, i wouldn’t bother filling out the traditional forms. i would just jot this quick note… “today i went into Bed Bath & Beyond looking for $2 fridge magnets, and left with $250 worth of new bedding.”
i don’t understand how a fabric softener sheet just disappears inside the dryer. i know it’s gonna pop up where i least expect it.
today, i spent over two hours at the NY DMV, watching inefficiency in action. i stood in line for an hour to get to the first window. at the first window, they collected all of my documents and entered some data in a computer. then they sent me to a second window, where they again examined my documents, gave me some additional papers, and took the photo for my license. then they gave me a...
tonight, i trudged through a snowstorm to go tanning.
my laptop and i went out to print one page at Kinkos, but they were closed for the blizzard. so we went to Best Buy and bought a printer.
Apple is so smart about design… even down to the winter carpets that are fitted to cover their clear stairs in the Meatpacking Apple Store.
while waiting for a CircuitCity.com delivery, i got this important-looking email titled “Your Confirmation is Needed”… but then i opened it and realized that they just want to spam me. i don’t think i like the way these new owners are running things. also, i noticed that they don’t accept online returns for the new camera i just ordered… but isn’t...
Taking my bike for one final, snowy ride before delivering it to the new owner at Penn Station…
Pablo Honey sounds more like the year 1993 than it does the band Radiohead. but i guess i’ve changed a bit since then, too.
i bought Drano and a toothbrush on drugstore.com. based on that order, they suggested i buy a marshmallow gun, Tums, and five vibrators. they said “would you like to add it to your basket?”, but i knew what they were really asking.
as predicted, the rain clouds rolled into LA just as i flew out…
Seems like an airport terminal is one of the few places you shouldn’t really need a Drunk Driving Awareness Campaign… Might have spoke too soon about the drunk stuff, as David Hasselhoff is on my flight.
the bar at this Chili’s in the AA terminal is packed with Aussies pounding beers, while i try to eat a sensible breakfast. it’s 10am!
Family ahead of me at LAX screening has two babies, two baby bags, two strollers, their own two bags, a purse, two laptops, and two dvd players for the kids. Screening took FOREVER!
It’s supposed to start raining in LA in a few hours… But I’ll be gone by then. That’s how it always works.
Listening to the KCRW hosts beg for donations is almost worse than listening to commercial radio stations.
Also found these dinosaurs from, like, 1984.
Found these sweet glasses in my LA storage. Now I just wish I had bad vision.
The guy eating lunch next to me was reading a Kindle but paid his bill with cash. I prefer to read the paper and pay with plastic.
I put more air in the tires of my Hollywood whip. Get ready to be super impressed, ladies.
a shorter path up a steeper hill isn’t always a shortcut. and that’s why i loved my brutal run in the Hollywood Hills today.
