Today’s tip for better living comes early in the show from the Archeress: Try to avoid O’Hare connections whenever possible. Here’s why:
that i got stranded and had to spend the night on the floor of the chicago o’hare airport last week. planes don’t fly when there’s lightning. and when scores of flights are cancelled, and it’s late at night, hotels are full, restaurants closed, and the “cots” provided by the city (otherwise used in homeless shelters i imagine) are all taken. so you lie down behind the baggage conveyor belt, with about fifty other people, and listen to annoying recorded announcements that continue all through the night. people go outside to smoke and then can’t get back in until 5am. it was very surreal. it’s not for the weak or the neurotic. i had some trouble with it.
f**k o’hare and all the overbooked airlines and their federal bailouts and their CEO bonuses and their brain-dead representatives, and their stupid recorded announcements “if you see something, say something…” …okay, i see a thousand people stranded like refugees, everything from japanese businessmen in expensive suits, to elderly people, all lying on the floor of the airport. that’s what i see. and i see an american woman crying over by the baggage conveyor.” hello? is anyone there?
i got to arizona, 30 hours (!) after leaving la guardia
We haven’t done three beautiful things in a while, here we go:

- Clarity of Thought, finally…..somewhat
- Hot cup of joe in the morning
Saturday morning. July has been a busy month, SRP (stuff reduction program) about to wrap. An ongoing project since 2001. It may be a life’s work. The constant shuffle.
Had the VH1 on the background this am and was intrigued by Sir Paul’s video and then stumbled upon The White Stripes Dead Leaves and Dirty Ground vid.
Also found out that Chachi gets his own show: Single and 45. From VH1’s site:
Over the past 25 years, Scott Baio has lived a life that all red-blooded American males’ would sell their big screen TV, car and soul for, boasting a jaw-dropping roster of erotic ex’s that would even make Warren Beatty blush. This extensive line-up of Hollywood honeys include: Heather Locklear, Pam Anderson, Denise Richards and Nicolette Sheridan.
But now, staring down the barrel of middle age, Scott has come to the end of his philandering rope. At 45, he finds himself at a mid-life crisis of mythic proportions, wondering why he’s still single, alone and still unable to settle down and commit to a substantial, meaningful relationship.
Scott Baio says it’s not a reality show and compares it to “Entourage” and “High Fidelity”. Hmmmm, two of my faves. Might have to check it.
And finally, Billy Ray Cyrus has morphed into Keith Urban.
Enjoy the weekend!
