Looking out at Manhattan from Queens.
Look at what they're doing to the TWA terminal. The old terminals/gates have been destroyed, but the famous part and it's tunnels remain. JetBlue is going to make that place nice.
I spent a portion of a crazy evening in there eight years ago waiting for a flight to Israel. I ate a hamburger and looked out the windows and thought "So that's New York."
But here's the thing . . . I'm making this post while sitting in the airport because JetBlue has free wireless and because I happen to have Owen's laptop with me. I'm totally nerding out.
But not as much as the businessman sitting beside me with the Halo novel.
(He's reading First Strike, which Jonshah Pourhahemi said was "probably one of my favorite books of all time" and that Arthur W. Jordin recommended for "Halo fans and for anyone else who enjoys nonstop firefights with a variety of horrifying and powerful opponents." However, the pros and cons of the novel's length are disputed. While Mr. Pourhahemi stated that "This book may be long, but it is filled with tangible actions senses," but Brett R. felt that "the only fault that I found in the novel was that it was too short." I guess you'll just have to decide for yourself when you pick up your own copy.)
I, however, am incredibly sophisticated so I watched a little bit of Masculin Feminin,which Yoo Min Choo called "a work full of irony, insight, poetry, and wit."
And here's the world internet premiere of my post-shingles face. It's really itchy today.
The Revenge of the Cancelled Vacation begins . . . NOW! Burma, here I come!
