I've had three requests today from (can I say) "fans" on things they'd like me to blog about. I'll do one today and then I'll need to wait until Friday to take #2 as.....I'm PHL to ORD bound! Of course, this puts the other two blogs at a little bit of a risk because I may ...

That's Turkish for "Close Your Legs" - you've probably seen it or at least heard of it over the last several days. Thanks to some tough Turkish travelers, well, tough female Turkish travelers, the very real and very pervasive male practice of spreading one's legs on public transportation is getting some air time. It goes like this: you ...

Mother’s Day

On Thursday I was en route home from that lobster salad lunch in Philadelphia and I thought, "Why don't I call my mom?" I was on the train and it seemed like a good enough idea. She's a Philadelphian after all - born in Hollywood, but raised on 16th and Locust. Well, not raised exactly, ...

Yesterday I splurged on a practical accessory that may just save my life. It's a snappy light blue iPhone case with sleek silver edges made by Pong. No, I didn't get it at the kiosk in the mall; nope, I didn't get it at the Verizon store. It's an online acquisition that virtually screams: 'female corporate traveler!' Pong ...

Today was supposed to be a very simple little jaunt into Philadelphia via SEPTA (local train) where I would meet a colleague at The Capital Grille for a lovely lobster salad. It all started innocently enough. A gaggle of us boarded in Warminster, plopped down, and proceeded to move at the usual 20 mph on ...

Once you're on the plane, anything can happen. You can sit at the gate. You can sit on the tarmac. The pilot can actually park you on some remote section of the airport while you wait for whatever has caused your "on time departure time" to pass. I was on a 5 p.m. PHL to BOS ...

No Peppers.

If you're on the PHL to Chicago AM flight and you're thinking, my wouldn't it be wonderful to have a big fat delicious mushroom, sausage, and green pepper egg wrap sandwich to eat on the flight, let me ask you:  How fun is it to smell that if you're sitting near you and not eating? The answer, of course, ...

Musical Chairs

Every female corporate traveler has to establish her position on the well known and much disliked game of musical chairs that (typically) tourist or novice fellow travels try to play. Think of it as your Position Principle. The scenario may go like this: older couple gets on the plane confused, disoriented, and seemingly perplexed that the ...
