Oct 8th 2012 11:45AM I once sat next to a really big man who needed to raise the arm rest between us to fit in his seat. So we were glued to each other from ankle to shoulder from San Francisco to Phoenix. Then (this was back in the days of complimentary airline meals), when he saw I didn't eat my whole lunch, he asked if he could have my dessert. He was a nice guy though, definitely not from hell. I gave him my dessert.

Agree with what's been said. Also like Matt a lot.
Will add this: One other benefit of centering your life on a career and working hard at it is gaining the ability to splurge a little more on your trips. Even when I was a backpacker, I thought traveling on a shoestring was kind of ghetto.

Sep 16th 2009 10:05AM I have owned an absolute PILE of kid headphones over the years in my efforts to simultaneously 1) protect hearing, and 2) drown out jet engine noise.
Ear buds in general cause a lot of drama b/c they hurt and fall out. In the end, I just bought two pairs of Bose QuietComfort headphones. They're not small (and my husband almost passed a kidney stone when he saw the bill), but they work like magic.

Jan 10th 2009 4:43PM Up until 2 weeks ago, my 4'7" daughter claimed to be the only 4th grader in the entire state of California still in a booster. As far as I could tell, she was right. I finally relented.
The seat belt hits her in the same place it did when she sat in a booster---I think that's the key factor. What matters is how tall you are from the waist up.
Jan 5th 2009 10:06AM Hear, hear on virtual travel not cutting it. I can't tell you how many times I've arrived somewhere, and it's nothing like I pictured it.
