  • The following observations were made mostly the day before Thanksgiving at JFK and LAX airports:

    The pilot totally looks like Rob Lowe.

    I bet the ladies wouldn't mind him on their landing strip!

    People need to stop sneezing. Can catch something hard to cure.

    I cannot believe people still go through airport security barefoot, I don't care if you're going to the equator, gross!

    Wow, I didn't realize so many people still wore Uggs.

    She is barefoot in her Uggs. Barefoot. In Uggs. Swamp feet. UGH...

    I hope they don't take away my chia seed pouch as I cannot eat airplane food. Is a pouch considered liquid?

    This sandwich is overpriced and its not that good. Better than a horrendous stomach ache I suppose.

    That guys needs to stop dropping his bag and leaving it unattended as the line bends. Security already called him out.

    I hope they search him extra, he's kind of creepy.

    Flying with this team of ladies from the West Point basketball team reminds me how short I really am. Oh well!

    One of the girls told me West Point even has foreign exchange students with one girl from Afghanistan. Awesome.

    This might the first time I am flying in such rain. Oh boy...

    So the pilot just told us with exact certainly there WILL be turbulence and its "more than expected" so if he's worried, we should panic!

    This is the WORST turbulence ever. The WORST! The plane is shaking like a leaf on a tree.

    I do however know that planes do not crash because of turbulence and if I think of it as a car on a country dirt road, I feel better.

    I grabbed the arm rest so hard during a giant gust of turbulence that the guy next to me asked if I was nervous.

    Conversation ensured.

    His brother lives in LA who is a doctor and also musician.

    It always nice to have hobbies outside your job. Glad I do!

    Its good to be distracted during the turbulence, let me watch a movie.

    I am the last person on earth to not have seen Frozen, I should watch it.

    The screen keeps freezing. Oh, the irony!

    Why do people keep buying black luggage, you have to look at everything before you know what is yours!

    I get that yellow luggage might not make sense, but damn, lets liven it up.

    Lots of people traveling with dogs. Do more people travel with dogs now or I just didn't notice before?

    My dog would freak the fuck out if he had to travel which sucks because we will definitely move to Europe one day.

    One of those little dogs was walking with his owner to baggage claim and saw a German Shepherd security dog and snapped at him.

    That actually made me laugh out loud. A tiny little fluffy dog snapping a cool, calm and collected security dog.

    Sure hope my suitcase comes quickly. There it is!

    I always pack a pair of shoes, undies and a shirt in my carry on just in case...

    I should change because its 30 degrees warmer here.

    Off to sunshine.
