I’ve just spent about an hour kvetching over whether to take a cab to the airport next week or to instead try out driving myself there. Â For some people, especially those who live at least a half hour away from LAX, there’s a lot easier of a comparison to make, as a cab or SuperShuttle can be quite a bit more affordable than long-term parking, if you’re going to be gone for a while. Â But here’s the sitch: Â where Larry & I live in Santa Monica, the drive to LAX, especially in the early morning, is like 15 minutes. Â 20 minutes max. Â But the cab rate runs to at least $35 and then factor in a tip. Â When coming home from the airport then you have to factor in the annoyance of waiting in a cab line. Â I still smile when I remember flying back to Las Vegas (when I lived there) and being able to walk to the long-term lot and smirk in horror at the ginormous taxi line there. Â All this is to say that I am going to try out long-term parking, as I’ll only be gone for 5 days.
Where am I going, you ask? Â Why, I’m going back to NYC to go get my man and bring him back home. Â Okay, that’s just one of the objectives. Â Things timed out rather fortunately as the weekend of Feb 11th is also when the illustrious Jeff Crepeau is getting married. Â I have not met his wife yet (they’re already married – this is just for the ceremony and parents and friends) so that should be fun. Â KD and Melissa Milas will also be going to visit. Â No Susan on this trip, but that’s kinda expected and definitely understandable. Â I am flying out a few days early though so I can spend some “alone” time with Larry in NYC too. Â I booked us a room at the Empire Hotel in the Upper West Side for two nights – it’ll be nice. Â Very very nice. Â I miss him quite a bit. Â If you catch my drift. Â And now I’ve entered TMI territory. Â Just saying that gone are the days of me being a eunuch. Â Oy!
Finally though, Larry will be back in the City of Angels on the 12th, and things will be back to some normalcy. Â Yay!
Also, just because there hasn’t been hot guy goodness in a while:
