does southwest serve cocktails on hour-long flights?


LOL! keep dreamin, babe. They don't even serve hot food on cross-country any more. You'll be lucky to get a bag o' nuts.


"customer service" means absolutely nothing in this country.
guess i'll have to buy a small bottle of jack at the liquor store. and feel like a wino. i'll say, "but it's for the plane!" and they'll say, "sure, sure, wino. we bet you're only flying to l.a!" and i'll shrink away from the counter in shame.

I have an 11:00 meeting and then I'm CG-ing 'cause I wanna hear what the Brits have to say about Charles & Camilla's impending nuptials.

Am I gay or what?

Enjoy your day off!!!


Lucky you--it's looking like a gorgeous day out! Have fun, and don't lose too much money playing skee-ball! (My big vice at the Boardwalk!)
Let's get right to it.

you and me, both! whenever i see a carnival scene in a movie (most recently, "the cooler") i always wants the characters to play skee-ball. never happens, though. other characters get to play skee-ball, but not the main ones...

...i think i need a fix.

That settles it.  Next time I come into the city, we're taking a day trip that starts with skee-ball on the Santa Cruz boardwalk (with a side trip to say hi to Angela Davis if she's around), proceeding to a ferry ride to record shopping (and the Grace Slick art gallery?) in Marin/Tiburon, and closing with dinner in the Mission.  How's that sound?

Sounds great but it also sounds like a VERY loooong day. Plan to start at 6am?  Santa Cruz is a day-trip by itself.  I'll happily drive to either SC or Marin (and Marin record-shopping must include Mill Valley which is a bit far from Tiburon); both in one day is a bit too much of a muchness.

Agreed. You just described a weekend, not just a day.

Record-shopping in Marin pretty much begins and ends at Village Music. I know of a couple of indie used stores in San Rafael (Bedrock and Maximum Music--my wife used to work for the latter), but neither has a spectacular selection any more. But you can easily kill 2-3 hours or more at Village, and that's if you DON'T start chatting with John Goddard, the owner.

Sarah and I happened to get married in a hall that's just across the street, and after the reception we and all our vinyl junkie friends went over to Village and pawed thru the bins for a short bit, still in our wedding garb. John said that was a first.

As a matter of fact we do. Our photographer was also my best man/best friend's girlfriend, so she came right along with us, cameras in tow.

All the above sounds fun. I made it to Santa Cruz but not the Boardwalk.  BEEE YUUUUU TEEEE FUL DAY! Long drive and you guys live farther than I do. Definitely too much to do south and north in a day.

I can't remember the last time I visited the Boardwalk. Love SkeeBall. During the unfortunate times I have visited ChuckECheese or Malibu Grand Prix with the kids, I have played SkeeBall. Also played during the summer in Reno at the Circus Circus arcade.

listened without posting yesterday, enjoyed the set but was busy at my desk doing other stuff.

Regarding "I Feel Love", that woulda been my BOS, just because that song takes me places that most songs don't even approach.  Can't say how or why, but in my list of lists this is one of the songs in the Evocative category.

When I was in Vegas for CES, and visiting the Intel booth, I got a free copy of the Blue Men Group's most recent DVD, which has a very interesting version of this song w/guest vocals by someone called Venus Hum.  Very cool, although not as cool as their version of Baba O'Reilly featuring Tracy Bonham on vocals.
