8 Flights in 8 Days…

I’m back! Back in LA. Finally! Back from working 6 days straight. Back from flying back and forth across the country 8 times in 8 days!

DAY 1: Commute to NY
DAY 2: Work NY to LA
DAY 3: Work LA to NY
DAY 4: Work NY to San Diego
DAY 5: Work San Diego to NY
DAY 6: Work NY to San Francisco
DAY 7: Work San Francisco to NY
DAY 8: Commute back to LA

Now it’s catch up time. Clean the house time. Stock the fridge time. Buy a new video camera time. You get the picture. Soon you may be getting the video. So while I’m playing catch up, you can go to Gadling.com and see my VENICE: CANNAREGIO GALLERY of photos and read all about my vacation to Venice by clicking the following link – GALLEY GOSSIP: FLIGHT ATTENDANT VACATION: VENICE (CANNAREGIO), because when a flight attendant takes a vacation, it’s not your typical vacation. And while you’re over there reading that, you can also read all about SNACKS ON THE PLANE, because I wrote about that, too, based on my 3 hour delay from San Diego to New York when I found myself starving, like the rest of the passengers. So while you’re doing that, I’m going to be busy doing all the things I don’t really feel like doing. It’s catch up time.



  1. Hello Skydoll,
    Thinking you would need a relaxing and funny book after such a tiring
    working life, I thought of suggesting to you THE SECOND VENICE
    by Askin Ozcan, which falls in line with your interest in Venice.
    The book was No.1 among top listed books in Italy Magazine (U.K.)
    last year and is selling at 200
    internet shops incl. http://www.bn.com

    and amazon.com, as well as at choice sites like http://www.archinect.com

    ISBN 1598000888 Outskirts Press
