Brog: Hitting The Canadian Club (And T.O. Too!)

Currently I’m in Canada - soon to be joined by SbB Girl Wendy. We’ll have oft-incoherent commentary coming this weekend, so keep checking back. More details below.

Yesterday I spent the day flying from Los Angeles to Montreal. Here’s one of the many highlights of my layover at O’Hare Airport in Chicago (nice to see the city’s most famous extinct dinosaur Bill Wirtz getting the proper tribute he deserves):

On the flight from LAX to ORD, I saw something I’ve never seen. Some poor old, oxygen-tanked woman actually swapped her own stuff for that drop-down oxygen mask.

Brog: $15 To Check Any Bag Now? Thanks United!

I’ll keep this short. I’m flying from LAX to Montreal today, and will be in Canada through the weekend with a SbB Girl. We’ll cap the trip by hitting the V Festival on Sunday in Toronto - on my birthday. Happy #29 to me!
