.: I am in NYC near Chelsea. Flew in today from Edmonton. Flight from Edmonton to Minneapolis was on time and ahead of schedule, as was the flight from Mpls to La Guardia. Then the fun began. After landing at ~4:30, we the passengers waited about 90 minutes for our luggage to make it to the carousel. Then I waited an hour for a shuttle, which took another hour to traverse Manhattan, dropping off other passengers before arriving at The Leo House at – wait for it – about 8:15 pm. In other words, it took longer to get from La Guardia to Manhattan then to get from Minneapolis to La Guardia. So, no party in Mahway NJ at Noella’s house tonight, which means I’m missing her totally awesome cooking as well. At least I made it in one piece, and the weather isn’t stifling hot – yet.

This morning before leaving, I discovered that mail to randy@podbaydoor.com wasn’t working. Joy of joys, what crappy timing. I did everything I could before resorting to sending a message to my hosting service’s help desk (HD). Thankfully, Hosting Matters does respond to its customers quickly, and by the time I arrived in Mpls, a suggested solution had been passed on to me. With my laptop in my luggage, I had to wait until I arrived in Manhattan. Many messages have been swapped between the HD and me today, and as best I can tell, the problem seems to be half solved. I can send e-mail from randy@podbaydoor.com, but can’t receive any. So, if you need to reach me, please send to lightspeed@gmail.com for now, or my work e-mail.

Up next, brunch with Noella and her friends tomorrow, and hopefully visiting another friend, Gali, and her daughter, tomorrow as well. Steely Dan stuff begins on Monday.

Does anyone know where in Manhattan I can watch The Sopranos tomorrow night? The Leo House doesn’t subscribe to HBO. 🙁

    Chelsea? That’s cool. Search Wikipedia for the entry on Joni Mitchell’s song “Chelsea Morning”.
