I Have Still Not Made It To New Orleans And I Am Not Happy About It At All.

So. My flight to New Orleans on Saturday was canceled due to the snow. It took me 3 hours to even get a call through to Continental, and once I did get through I sat on hold for over an hour and a half. Finally they got me on the next available flight out - which is tonight (Monday). So as long as I can get out of Newark tonight, I will be in New Orleans by about 10pm. Patsy and Diddy are already on their way down there - they got a 6am flight. I am at work. I was supposed to be in New Orleans from Saturday through Tuesday, and now I am going Monday through Friday. We missed St. Patty's Day down there which sucks, but we had a few people over and had an impromptu "St. Patty's in Jersey Really Sucks" party, which didn't really suck at all. We wore all our crazy greenwear that we were going to wear to the parades and looked like morons. Patsy thinks, after seeing how ridiculously green we were, that the Gods of Alcohol realized we were going to look like idiots on Bourbon Street with our green shamrock hats and tiaras, green sparkly sunglasses, light up green beads, etc etc etc, that they decided to spare us the embarrassment and keep us at my house rather than in public looking like that. There are many many pictures but I don't have them at work, and even if I did, I am not sure I should subject you to them.

So please, think happy thoughts for me that I get out of Jersey today and down to the best place in the world. And that Patsy really meant it that she would meet me as I get out of the cab at my hotel with a Voodoo Daquiri.

Damn that stinks! I always fear when I travel that the weather will be all messed up and I would be stranded. Sorry to hear that. Good luck getting to New Orleans. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Sorry you didn't get to go to New Orleans. I am sure it would have been fun; I've never been. I'd like to go.

Hope you're there or home by now---something is wrong with your blog--comments show, some pictures, your blogroll, but not the template or content

That is quite a bummer but hopefully you can still manage to make it on time!

Stuff like this is so frustrating. While I understand the airline needs to do what is safe for their employees and customers it still sucks. I certainly hope that you made it there and look forward to your stories when u get home.
