Hello new Box.

My first CO flight of the year is tomorrow. Once again, three cheers for $60 BOS-SAN fares! Despite my UA status, which CO cannot see for some reason, I forgave the upgrade, though it was my right to have one had I decided to press the issue. It's the first trip with my SO who has no hope of sitting in F with me, so it's 21A+B for us. I hope I have not committed FT heresy.

If it doesn't, I'll probably only come back around when post 1000 is near.


For a while we celebrated 000 milestones. Then the community grew such that only 0000 or larger milestones were celebrated. Status (25K, 50K, 75K) and other obscure large number references, depending on the dorkiness of those reaching for it (e.g. 32768, 65536, etc.) are also cool, in addition to the 0000 numbers.

It must be a hard life when your only goal is to waste money. I've found that travel is a much more sound use of that spend.

Exclamation

Hola, New Box! Certainly, this is a CHANGE I have been expecting for a long time. So, As The Globe Turns....

While I have no mang immediately in mind to take the plunge with, I am thinking that the United-Continental merger may be a good template to follow once I'm ready to get hitched. We'll keep the mang's surname, his possesions, and his stream of moolah, while keeping my logo (yes, I actually have one!) and me in charge of things generally. I even have the voicemail message I'll use immediately upon my engagement mapped out:

Hello, you have reached the voicemail of HeathrowGuy. HeathrowGuy and BudapestMang are in the initial phases of an engagement expected to last 9-12 months. It's business as usual for now, but you will gradually see changes as we work to create an amazing new family operating under the BudapestMang name. For the immediate future, please continue to contact me just as you always have, and be rest assured your HeathrowGuy CoolPoints status is secure. Leave a message at the beep, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.



And yes, I have been drinking tonight.

Sadly, I'm not sure this actually explains the above.

Yes, but there's still something special about the first few low-number milestones. I'd celebrate 100, but not 21,100.

I'm fan of the palindrome mileposts.

Good morning Box.

Up since 4AM...to watch Cricket World Cup final (India is playing Sri Lanka).

I think there may be a couple of Bxers who will want to know the result later....I will update for them.
All the rest of you who feel cricket is as boring as curling, please dont read

Well, 1 billion people or more are watching the game now around the world!

Is there a way that we can keep track of it (or watch it) on the web?

ETA: I found a running summary at http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...ch/433606.html

India is batting second. They usually do better when they are on first.
