ON MY MIND
I think this would be my shortest blog post. Eclectic journey indeed! Maybe VERY eclectic. Or is it because of…?
Holy crap, so many credit card pushing blog posts lately. It is the beginning of the month, time to pay bills perhaps? If I was still doing the “Not So Best Of” section I would have to hire an assistant to update the links to so many blog posts that would qualify!
Wow, more Frequent Flyer University meetings out, now in Tampa September 27 -29 in Tampa. Right before The Chicago Seminar October 11 -13 in Chicago. And of course another FTU in April in the heels of the FTU event in Los Angeles, which I attended and really enjoyed for the social aspect. Guys, am I the only one thinking this quirky hobby is getting a bit too popular? Do we really need all these events with the same speakers? Just thinking out loud. I find it hilarious that the CS is billed as “the ONLY not for profit event of its kind” when FTU also stresses that “the event is priced to cover event costs, though if we’ve figured it right there will be some leftover funds which wind up donated to charity.” I am just pointing to the contradiction of these two statements, nothing else!
No time to apply for wife again…Story of my after blog life…And no bookings either.
Any readers with recommendations for a hotel to crash at Heathrow on April 21? Don’t need the luxury, just clean and quick shuttle and real deal in $$ or (preferable) points!
“Marriott Is Bringing Some Moxy to the Brand“. This is getting some play online…how Marriott is teaming up with IKEA. These hotels will NOT have IKEA brand furniture (Thank you Jesus!). Instead “many rooms will be prefabricated offsite and assembled like IKEA furniture.” Huh, whatever.
“The World’s Best Rooftop Bars“. From Must Look. Wow!
“21 Roads to Drive Before you Die“. Yes baby, this one went into my Evernote for future reference! From Twisted Sifter.
