UPDATE

They're "scheduled to make a decision" about my flight "around noon." They don't say what year. So I have switched to another flight. Pray for me, and all the lost souls here at the Atlanta airport.

On a brighter note:
The airport p.a. system is playing Christmas music, and I just heard one of my favorite all-time lyrics:

Logs on the fire
Fill me with desire

Don't they know who your ARE?????????

That's "you" are. Danf.

jt - They do, but they're going to let him on the plane anyway.


Maybe.

That's "dang." Shiy!!!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! NOT THAT SONG!

Dave, do you want us to be as miserable as you are???

Brain bleach! PRONTO!

Praying Dave but God's only omnipotent and we are talking about the Atlanta airport.

Siouxie! I'm surprised by you! Such a nice song by Karen Carpenter...Jesus was a carpenter...coincidence?

They know who he is but do they know he's now filled with desire?!

I wouldn't mind some logs on MY fire.

Dave! Last night was wonderful!

I've sent a copy of the picture to judi.

I think one of the questions you missed was something to do with asking your advice on where and how to see the Rock Bottom Remainders.

i feel the same way about logarithms...

Susan, I wouldn't say that too loudly. Mrs. Blog may be around ;-)

pssssssst?? you got pics???? wow

Punkin, I hate that song. Jesus or no Jesus.

Logs in the bowl,
make my morning whole.

Nope.

Logs in the loo,
make me think of you.

Nah.

Logs on the fire,
fill me with desire.

Um. Ok.

Dave, I wonder if you will be hearing this Christmas song:

...airline employees roasting on an open fire...pit bulls nipping at their nose...

Maybe you will even hear it twice if you sit there long enough.

ellie, I'm hearing it in stereo! ;p

Dave - there are flights from ATL to Orlando about every hour. Grab one and drive from there.

Siouxie...one picture, backstage. Dave snuck out to say hello to John Nations and I. There was apparently a special reception for the big donors.

I was not on that list.

*makes a note not to play the Carpenters Christmas song*

That would be on the airline we'll call "Schmelta".

Repeating from the earlier line -- buy a big truck. You'll be able to deduct it before the first payment comes due.

It's a ten hour drive

Plus, when other kids are using "play" vehicles, your daughter can have something large enough to haul a semi-trailer. What could go wrong?

Safe travels, Dave. Are Christmas songs playing non stop really good for crowd control this time of year?

Dave, face it. You're going to need to set up your Christmas tree in Terminal C and have your family driven in. There is no other way.

By noon you could have been over half way home if your were driving (provided you didn't get stopped on I-95 as a drug mule). If you weren't such a big shot celebrity, you'd join the rest of us poor schmucks on the interstate, lol.

Dave, find the bookstore on your concourse and strumpet!

for epiphany-induced-by-what-i-can-only-hope-was- too-much-time-in-the-sun lyrics, you can't beat the Beach Boys in 'Little Saint Nick': "Christmas comes this time each year."

"Dave, face it. You're going to need to set up your Christmas tree in Terminal C and have your family driven in. There is no other way."

Even that won't work in ATL. You have to be a "ticketed passenger" and go through security before you can get on the train to go to the concourse, the furthest of which is about 1.25 miles out.

Dave, since you may have some time to kill, I thought this might cheer you up...

pogo, he can set up the tree in the parking lot then.

problem solved!

Esther, they think 300,000 people is a crowd? This is from ajc.com:

Delta Air Lines, the largest carrier at Hartsfield-Jackson, expected to handle about 4.3 million passengers during the Christmas/New Years holiday travel period, with Friday and Jan. 2 being among the heaviest travel days.

Yes, but if you factor in the number of people per square foot...not to mention the hogs...

I got stuck in the Atlanta airport for six hours a coupla months ago. It could be much, much worse. Have you been to the airport in New Orleans?

Here is something that might bring you some

Christmas cheer

ellie, it's Chirstmas.

casey, one time when I flew into NO I had made a reservation with a national car rental agency. I got to their counter and was told that there were no cars available right then and it would be a short wait. The attendant pulled my RESERVATION from the board behind the counter and stuck it at the bottom of a pile on the counter. I then noticed that other people without reservations were walking up filling out the contract and it would be placed at the bottom of the same pile.

go to the rentacar desk ..... flying is rediculous in this country . or, you could walk. like how far is it??

Esther --
Don't forget the live turkeys, brought as carry on luggage (not carrion luggage, which is what happens to a pretty good percentage of animals transported below in the baggage compartment this time of year) that many families bring to their celebration feasts and are, uhm, harvested as close to the time of the meal as possible so as to be the most fresh.

Sioux- or Clistmas?

My friend Liz is called "Lig" at her cleaners. She never bothered to correct him because it is just so dang funny.
