I'm going to New York for the weekend! I've never been there before, and I'm very excited. I'm going to be staying at Miriam's, and I'll hopefully get to stop by and see Greg at some point, too. Dancing and touristing will certainly happen. Maybe I'll even run into Kimmy at some point.
My flights are American Airlines 288 (going) and 231 (returning). Yes, I will be in a gas-laden plane near the Statue of Liberty on President's Day. No, you will hopefully not hear about either of those flights in the news.
(Mother: you did not just read that and you are not allowed to worry. I promise to make sure that the security officers check my shoes twice for terrorists.)
