Planespotting: John Carney is the anti-Christ

It’s 10 am and we’ve already been to Connecticut* and back. Meaning we’ve been up since an inappropriately early hour. Some people don’t get out of bed for less than 5K/day; we don’t get out of bed before nine. Call us childish or even lazy if you want, we really don’t care. We consider nine a huge step for us, considering the fact that up until May 28, 2006, we weren’t vertical beings until at least 3 in the afternoon, usually 4. But today, under the orders of he-whose-initials-surreptitiously-mirror-those-of-a-figure-who-(so we’re told**)-is-pretty-damn-awesome, we were unjustly forced to wake up at FIVE A.M. At this point, many insufferable hours later, things are not looking pretty here in the DB janitorial closet; the mops are all blurring together, a minute ago our blood pressure dropped and we collapsed atop a bucket full of dirty water, and we get the distinct feeling the noxious fumes from an open bottle of Windex are killing more brain cells than usual, but there’s nothing we can do about it because we’re too damn tired. Today’s p-spottings come commentary/conspiracy theory-free. Sorry; you’ll have to fend for yourselves this once. Lavish on the snide/hallucinatory remarks like you know we would, were we not about to pass out from exhaustion and illegal working conditions.*** We’ll be back to our old selves on Thursday. We hope…
Larry Ellison: Olbia Costa Smeralda (Olbia, Italy) to Norman Y Mineta San Jose Int'l on his Bombardier Global Express
Denise Rich: Henderson Executive (Las Vegas) to Minneapolis St Paul Int'l on her Learjet 60
Donald Trump: Cecil Field (Jacksonville) to Pease Int'l Tradeport (Portsmouth, NH) on his Boeing 727-100
*more on that tomorrow.
**if you know what we mean.
