  • Pulp friction

    Got a letter from United advising me that I could exchange my mileage points for magazines. Not one piqued my interest where they all appear to be mindless tat. I guess I’m stuck with actually flying with United.

  • NYE: You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off

    Maybe it is because they are saving their denarii for the upcoming Superbowl but Houston did not put on any official celebration activities to see in the new year.
