Me thinks its all the excitement.
My journey started 29 hrs ago, when I treated myself to a first class up grade for the first flight of 10 1/2 hrs. Worth every penny. BTW that is sparkling water in my hand, but I do confess to having a large Baileys after lunch, lol.
My tip for a long journey is to always have your journal close to hand, and a good audio book. With both of those I can survive almost anything!!
After landing in Charlotte, I had a few hrs layover before my next 5 1/2 hr flight to LAX. I was relaxing so much I almost missed the flight!!! I boarded with seconds to spare, but had to put my carry ons in the hold. 5 1/2 hrs with nothing to do, but listen to the grunts, cries and snores of fellow passengers can very nearly tip you over the edge.
BTW my boots are very special to me, I own the right one and the lovely Gentleman Jim and the gorgeous Cesar own the left one. They are hand embroidered Old Gringos and are really rare. Hence I could only afford the one, lmao.
So arriving at LAX and getting the Super Shuttle sounds easy, doesn't it???? Errr no, this is me we are talking.
BUT… 3 hrs later I finally arrived at the hotel, checked in and started to run a much needed hot bath. What could go wrong.??
While the bath was running I nipped across the corridor to get a drink from the vending machine and couldn't get back in my room. Neither of the keys would work!! So I hotfooted it down to reception, where they insisted on ID.
Sounds simple, but they wouldn't take any old ID…..not a credit card, or anything in my purse, not even my Hilton Honours card which was matched to the room, no they wanted photo ID. And all the time the bath in the room is filling up. The man who had checked me in 10 mins previously had just gone off duty and no one seemed prepared to let me back in the room.
Well after 28 hrs awake you can imagine how well that went down with me!!!
So one diva strop later and I was back in the room, with 1 inch to spare in the bath…accompanied by a member of staff who still needed to see my ID. Yes you can't make it up can you???
After all that my bath was fabulous, but now I am wide awake lol and need to be and on the show floor in 3 1/2 hours as I have tons to prep and do.
But whilst I am awake I am going to do the next blog post, which will contain all my new releases.
Whoop de frikkin whoop…I can hardly contain my excitement.
See you in a bit.
