I'm back!


Just got in tonight from California. Can't wait to catch up.

If you didn't know security is CRAZY at all the major airports.
And although I had heard that, it still is something to behold when you are actually there.

So my advice?
Leave VERY early and make sure you factor in an extra hour and a half for security checks.
It was inconvenient, but I did feel safe.

Oh and LAX, the day after the Golden Globes?
Insane.
Even Kevin Bacon had to wait in line with the rest of us peasants!

Welcome back! Now you are one degree closer to Kevin Bacon. :-)

We just booked a flight to New Orleans -- from Newark, less -- for April. It's a 7:05 a.m. flight and we're considering bringing a sleeping bag and just going to dinner the night before in the terminal.

Yes, airport security is now out of control! I flew out of Newark Airport a few days after that loser walked the wrong way down a hallway there. I was really scared because this time i was flying out of EWR with a standard poodle. Check-in with a dog is a really long process, then I was sweating it out in the TSA line!! I almost worried I would miss my flight and Halle would leave without me!! But it all worked out well, and I do agree, flying is no longer the pleasure it used to be! When flying out of major cities, one must factor 2 hours ahead of your flight just to get processed to your gate!! Glad you are home Preppy!! xoxo

Welcome back! I hope it was a huge success :)

Please tell me that KB was at least a smiley nice guy. I would hate to think that in real life he is a jerk.

I can only imagine how awful the airport was! I can barely tolerate LAX on a "normal" day!
