Our local Fox news anchor, Hope Woodside, tried on a new look last night. 'Just got out of the shower' hair with a low buttoned white top almost showing cleavage. Now I like Hope - a lot - I think she's a babe. But given that I live in Mormonia, I'm sure someone will have something to say about this. Most of the days she gets it just right but she does occasionally have some way-off days when it looks like she's pissed off the makeup lady. You can tell those days - her rouge or blusher is a radioactive orange. Either that or the camera operator lost control of the colour.
So this is what it's come down to. The airlines shoved all the seats closer together. Then they took away pillows and blankets and hot food. Then they added charges for drinks, snacks ($4 for a fucking biscuit???) and headphones. Then they added charges for legroom, exit row, aisle or window seats.
Today American announced that you now have to cough up $15 each way for your first checked bag. They say it's to cover the increased cost of fuel. But that's in addition to the compound 12.5% hike in ticket prices and the $25 each way charge for a second bag that were also attributed to the increased cost of fuel.
The airlines are doing everything in their power to make their form of transport as miserable and torturous an experience as possible, and they're doing it very well. Backscatter X-ray machines, bomb sniffers, the dim-witted TSA morons and the 'no belt or shoes' security lines have conspired to make the airport experience bad enough as it is.
Seems that the spineless John Mason still wants to marry his runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks. Frankly, he should wait, because that woman needs to do a short spell in jail to make her learn not to waste everyone's time. OK people get nervous before their weddings. But there's a really big freakin' difference between simply not turning up, and phoning in to say you've been kidnapped. This woman clearly needs some time in a mental institution too. She's cried wolf now and this is bad on two fronts. First - if she ever does actually get kidnapped, nobody will believe her. Second, those people who have legitimately been kidnapped, will now be doubted until it could be too late. Not to mention that in this post Mark Hacking world, where gormless twats hack up their wives and claim they've been kidnapped, this UFO-eyed woman managed to get the police and feds looking directly at her hubby as a potential murderer. And after all that, would you believe he forgives her ???…
