Jungleboy Transparent

Toronto, here we come!

Well, it took the intervention of a *very* cooperative American Airlines Aadvantage agent, but Andy and I have our tickets for Toronto in June.

It required agent intervention because the system won't show you how many award seats are available on a particular flight, and we each had to use our own mileage accounts. So we worked in parallel, and you guessed it -- only one ticket went through.

The agent tried 3 different iterations, and I'm not sure how he did it, but he got us onto the same flights both ways.

(We're cashing in the miles we earned when we paid for first-class tix to Glasgow last year, so we had enough for first-class award tickets to Toronto!)

For all the horrible things you hear about airline award programs, I have to say this was a very good bit of customer service.

Rampant Consumerism and Costuming

Did some shopping today..

New crosstrainers (my trainer told me he didn't want to see my old beat-up shoes again)... 2 pair, so I can alternate them day to day.

Fabric for my Future Fashion Show piece.

And (online) a Countryman E6i headset for my wireless mic system. This thing is almost invisible, and is supposed to have amazing sound.

(And yes, I bought it from that company, even though their main customer base seems to be evangelical churches. It cost about $150 less from them than anyone else!)

Now it's time to prewash the fabric and finish mucking out the studio, so I can start patterning.
