On Our Way Home From Los Angeles.

lax-gate-three.jpgI’m writing from Gate 3 at LAX. It’s sunny. It’s warm. It’s not a happy departure. We came as three. We leave as two.

Stef’s reasonably set up. Her furniture is assembled. The TV is working. She and her roommate, who also just moved in, still have unpacking to do but it’s under control.

Helaine is profoundly affected, but she’s showing strength. This is our only child. Stef and she have been as close as parent and child can be.

Stefanie was very apprehensive up until two or three days ago. As things started to fall into place she began to relax.

As I type a woman is sitting next to me living her life via Nextel Direct Connect… at full volume! Good grief. It would be better if she had more interesting stories.

I’m in a row of comfortable chairs with electrical outlets and USB ports. I like that.

We stopped to get some lunch before heading down the concourse. As I sat at a table waiting for Helaine I noticed a tall, slender Asian woman. OK–I know, I notice all tall, slender Asian women.

Back to the woman. She was wearing porn shoes! I don’t know how else to describe them. They were high stiletto heels with the sole hiked a few more inches up on a platform.

Maybe she was slender and not tall? Tough to say now that I think of it.

We’re flying home through Chicago today. The weather should cooperate. There are some flurries expected at Midway, but nothing worse.

By the time we land at Bradley we’ll have lost a good fifty degrees. A good fifty? No–the best fifty!

    Whenever I travel I am amazed at the shoes some women wear. They aren’t exactly “comfortable travelling” shoes. Don’t get me wrong…they’re sexy as hell but nowhere near sensible.

    That woman was probably at AEE – which essentially is the Adult Industry’s major awards show (a la the Oscars).

    I hate how people who have Nextel phones insist upon making everyone insist upon listening to their direct connect conversations at full volume. My sentiments echo yours, generally people are talking about the most unimportant things.

    There is a function where you can use it like a normal phone, not broadcasting your conversation to anyone within a 35 foot radius. More people need to take advantage of that feature.

    12 hours door to door across the continent? Southwest doesnt so Bradley to LAX direct it NYC to LAX?

    We flew LAX-MDW MDW-BDL. Scheduled transfer time in Chicago was 35 minutes.
