Did anyone watch the Kasabian gig last night on the iTunes festival?………….man alive, did they rock! Not to late to watch it if you missed it, but what were you thinking?
Today, I had a hair cut, courtesy of a local Cuban barber – did a damn fine job too I think. So impressed was I, I left him a $4 tip – and if you read my recent post on tipping in the states you will fully understand that this is a good haircut.
New bike is on the way and on Thursday evening, I also managed to take over 2 minutes out of my 16k time round Fort Lauderdale. I actually think that as autumn comes in and things cool down some more, I can get even more time out of it too. For those Runkeeper chums – keep an eye on your activities, don’t be falling behind too far – you may never catch up again.
Trip to Boulder in Colorado is now firmly on the cards, flights booked with Delta Airlines. Let me tell you about Delta Airlines, for a while now, they have been my favourite American Airline but I think they may fall foul soon. So I found a ticket, $280 return – not too shabby. I could upgrade to first class for a total of $700 – I decided against it then started reserving my seats with extra leg room because I am a lanky twat. An additional $200 – Crikey, I thought – might just have been better going for the first class ticket after all. I clicked on purchase, and the web did just that. When my confirmation came in, seems I managed to purchase my ticket WITHOUT hold baggage – that’s another $25 each way. So I am within $150 of the first class ticket that would have given me the baggage, priority boarding, free food and drinks and maybe other benefits too. Problem is, they never told me about the hold luggage at all – the sneaky fuckers.
I hate that – very short sighted. Lets talk rental cars in Boulder. Hertz & Avis quote includes full insurance, go to Enterprise and you can only spec the full insurance at collection so you can’t compare prices fully. So I backed away from Enterprise immediately. That said, Avis price was almost half of Hertz – what’s going on there?
Either way – I just looked at the weather for Boulder & Colorado in general – first snowfall usually starts in September – might be pretty chilly by the time I get there at the end of October – Might need some warmer gear – something different than the Floridian shirt and shorts. Ooops!
Christmas is just around the corner
