In the Air Again

05 May 2005

Well I’m back on the road again on yet another red eye, this time headed towards Toronto. Only this time I’ve got company, one Erick “E-DOG” Lindgren who is currently sleeping beside me snoring like a caveman. Wait that didn’t sound too good… he’s in the seat next to me on the airplane (just thought I’d clarify J

Actually I really didn’t think E-DOG was going to make it. I was supposed to pick him up from the Bellagio at 10:00pm but couldn’t get a hold of him. I called his rather annoying cell phone and he wouldn’t pick up. I would have left a message but his phone is a piece of junk and it kept saying that his message box is full.

I circled the parking lot, again and again, while repeatedly calling him. Then finally he called me and heard, “You !@$@&^^!!!! Your phone sucks“. He finally met me outside and we head to the airport well ahead of schedule.

As we were parking at the airport Erick decided to finally inquire, “You don’t need a passport to go to Canada do you?”

“Yeah you definitely do. Ever since 9/11 they’ve really cracked down.” I told him.

“Uh oh, I didn’t bring it.” Oh brother, can’t bring this guy anywhere!

Luckily Erick recently hired an assistant of his own so she was able to head over to his house, rummage through his piles of garbage, and finally find his birth certificate which is apparently good enough. We waited for about half an hour and then his assistant showed up with the birth certificate.

Luckily we both flew first class so we wouldn’t have any issues with lines in security otherwise it might have been a close call. We made good time though, and even had a chance to have a beer at the bar while we waited.


The pilot just notified us that we are about 130 miles out of Toronto so I’ll have to cut this short. I have a full day of media “stuff” to do today and tomorrow… I’ll let you all know how that goes tomorrow evening. Oh, and by the way… the wedding is back on!
