Getting Crazy

passport
Much as I like travel -- well, at least the part where I'm in some cool place, I have actually come to hate the process of getting there, thanks to the airlines and the TSA and such -- getting ready for a trip is always Crazy Time around here.  There is always too much to do, and too little time to do it in, and no matter how hard you try, something always gets forgotten.  And it's worse when it's a LONG trip, like this jaunt to Australia and New Zealand.

Which is my long-winded way of saying that I have so damn much to get done today that I don't even think I can watch football.

So let me go work.

Meanwhile, I will leave you with a fun trailer for next weekend's late movie at the Jean Cocteau.  Sad to say, I won't be here to see it... but you should.

I'm presuming you originate at The Sunport in Albuquerque, so at least you aren't dealing with a huge airport until your first connection.

I find I much prefer starting and ending in San Diego (where I live now) or Albuquerque (where I grew up) than I did in Chicago (where I spent much of my adult life) just due to the size of the airport.

The Sunport is a nice airport, all things considered, and much easier to take than a madhouse like DFW, LAX, or O'Hare. On the other hand, those places all have direct flights to many many destinations. Flying out of ABQ, nine times out of ten you need to connect through one of the zoos in any case. Whoever came up with the "hub" model for commercial air travels should burn in seven hells.
