Any of y'all from Newark?

So, as promised yesterday, today I am excited about my trip.

When I bought the tickets months ago, I picked the least expensive itinerary which, as often happens, takes me way the heck out of my way. In this case, I'll be traveling from Central America to North Carolina by way of Newark. Yeah.

But, whatever. It cost less, and that's what counts with me.

It also has very long layovers. Like, almost five hours on the way up and nearly ten on the way home.

Now that I'll be traveling without the girls, I checked to see if maybe there are earlier flights scheduled that same day, that maybe they'd let me on if I get in early enough. But in both cases, the only other flight leaves just half an hour after I'm scheduled to arrive, so the chances of making it (and of there being space even if I did) are pretty slim.

So, I don't suppose any of you are going to be in the Newark area on December 18 or January 3, are you? And fancy hanging out at the airport?

Anyone? ... Anyone? ... Bueller?

No, but our Philadelphia door is always open to you! We're not so far by train. . . . We have beer. Or coffee. Or both.

I'll drink a beer and pour one out for my Homie . . . (Homette?)

Alas, Rochester is nowhere near Newark. I wish it were. I would totally come and keep you company.

Sorry, Joisey might as well be Georgia to me. Though I'd get to Boston or Hartford in a heart-beat, if only to bring you a sandwich which didn't cost ten bucks!
