    My favorite quote. "Even literal Gold Medallions don't get upgraded."

    To be fair, it's not really up to the Twitter team to upgrade people, and all the D1 seats on that flight might be sold or filled by Diamonds using global upgrade certs, but the optics of that response are poor.

    Booked a long eeekend in bkk late May (aka Ramadan escape break )

    Looking for a quickie to Amman in a couple weeks. Friday morning/Saturday night flights where mookie won’t even sweat a carry on . Grab a room close to the downtown market and sit and drink coffee and eat and watch.

    In a stark contrast to my last work trip news (UK, with a weekend in London), it looks like I might have to go to Casper, Wyoming for a few days.
    Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

    Similar to Jackson, from what I've heard - wealthy "cowboy".

    If mookie sweats a carry-on for more than one night, then mookie is amateur. I can easily live out of an under-the-seat backpack for 2-3 nights.

    Not even close. More like Cheyenne - windy and cold and barren.

    They have a brewery, an airport, and a hotel I can get points at. It won't be the worst thing ever. After all, I've done several trips to Clovis, NM.

    And Colombia. The bad one, not one of the many okay ones.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Colombia was awesome. I'd go back to Bogota again in a heartbeat. It was a great city to visit, with plenty of stuff to see, the people were great, and it was a really fun place with good food and nightlife.

    do you carry on the backpack? or does it walk itself

    mookie's carry on is s satchel holds the laptop if work needs him, his ipad, meds, a toothbrush. mookie recycles clothes like nobody's business!

    Great time in the Indian subcontinent and Siam. Legally, bagged myself some big game - acquired a relic statue off an old buddhist temple. Live large.

    Interesting. I guess my sources are dead wrong.

    Germany has been pushed back to Feb/March 2019, so that I can spend a day or two skiing on a side jaunt into Austria or Slovenia.

    Going to spend a few days each in BOS and SFO, October 12th or 13th through 20th or 21st. I've never done any of the history stuff in Boston, only eaten & worked there, and going in October I figure I might be able to squeeze in a Bruins game as well. While I've come close (flying to SJC for work), I've never been to Frisco.
