Surfing in Florida

Thea and Morgan Paar
St. Augustine, Florida, USA

No waves today. Could have really used them. Turned in my column to Videomaker Magazine this morning and shortly after found out that the airline which Alex and I each gave $700 in exchange for passage to Buenos Aires in less than two weeks has gone belly-up and will not be taking us. After hours of phone calls, Alex finds out that we will (most likely) get reimbursed in 60 days. That doesn't help us get down to Argentina in twelve days. Now we need to buy new tickets, which are going for $1,200 - $5,000. Could have used a few good waves this afternoon.

That sucks. Belly up? Does that really happen? United recorded its first profits this quarter since 9/11. I bet its their fault.

Lets sue united.

Farkin' airlines. And you can't even take toothpaste or lipstick (though I guess you can actually use some shampoo these days, hippie!)
