The ultimate nightmare flight:

Being stuck for 7 hours on a Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong that never leaves the runway at San Francisco.

I've flown that particular flight.

A word to the downwardly challenged:

Cathay Pacific seats and the space between the seats are designed for Asian bodies. That means if you are taller than about 5'5" and larger than a size 8, you are in trouble. (Of course, that does remind me of that line in The Devil Wears Prada: "Size "6" is the new "14".)

I did learn this much: Trying to sleep standing up and leaning against the wall in back of the plane on a 13 hour flight exacerbates jet lag.

Meanwhile, Fr. Michael Sweeney was stuck in a middle seat, without cigarettes, for 13 hours. Fortunately, his friends had insisted that he take Valium before boarding.

Have I mentioned the glamour of the mendicant life lately? My condolences to all on board.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
