Apologies for the unconventional post, but right now I’m not going to talk about food. Oh wait, I just had a Momofuku cornflake & marshmallow cookie – so awesome – and ok, that’s it, no more food.

I’m writing this post while flying towards Vegas. Vegas?! Why am I going to Vegas? WELL. You see, it kinda sorta snowed in London over the weekend. And who knew how treacherous them adorable little snowflakes can be!

Anyway, to cut a long story short, my Saturday flight from NYC to London was cancelled. I rebooked for today and last night that flight also cancelled, and I was told the next available seat from NYC to anywhere in London isn’t until Boxing Day. For realz.

There’s no way I’m hanging out in NYC alone and missing Christmas with Panu so I hunted around and found a seat on a flight from Vegas to London for tomorrow. And so I’m on my way to Vegas, baby, and who knows maybe I’ll win some money while I’m there 😉

Thanks for all the support and thoughts on facebook, twitter and email! You guys make me smile 🙂

    Catty, the TV news reported that they are about to shut down the airport at Heathrow. So, you might encounter yet another cancellation due to that. At least you will be reasonably warm in Vegas. Wish I knew someone there who could keep
    you company. Stay careful in that place and don’t take candy from strangers.
