USA-bound for the holidays

Christmas in the post-War United States

This will be the last post made on Swedish soil for a while. I’m headed to the Heartland of America to spend Christmas with my family and friends. It’s exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time, largely because Dr. Darling is not coming along due to the fact that Post Denmark is a BIG GRINCH.

The trip is further not off to the best of starts because SAS pre-assigned me a seat at the very back of the plane, which means it probably doesn’t recline and is across from the toilets. FUN! There doesn’t seem to be any way to change it online, so I’m heading to the airport a little early to see if a combination of charming & pitiful (in my eye-patch) will get them to move me to a less-odious seat. (Because let’s be honest, all airplane seats not in Business or First Class are odious.)

I’m sure I’ll have plenty of stories to tell as well as time to tell them while I’m there, so watch this space.

In the meantime, my Twitter feed is sure to be lively … except for when I’m actually in the air. You can find it here: https://twitter.com/Shazzer

    Sharon, the last time I flew to Seattle, in September, the airline did this to me but when I got to the airport they revealed that they had seats open on the plane and would upgrade anyone to first class for $50 – or they would move anyone to another seat because there were 80 seats empty on the flight.

    I hope you have such an experience.

    No such luck for me, Pat. Flight was overbooked. But I survived it!

Feed my ego!
