    I got to the airport too early

    I'm at JFK right now, my flight backto London is at 6:30pm and I got to the airport at 3pm. So now I just have to sit around and browse BF, while that's no bad thing, being away from everything (including BF) for two weeks was a great refresher. Anyway, I have a massage booked in another 45 minutes to ease the pain of having not much to do and plenty of time to do it in.

    And that's all.

    Actually, I might as well tell you that I hired one of those bikes that everyone curses, one of those that you get from Wallmart. Dont recall the name, something like a Huffy but not quite a Huffy. BUT IT WAS REAL COMFORTABLE compared to my road bike. That thing just glided over bumps and I soon found myself not having to lift my 4SS over ANY bumps. It was slow as heck though but I managed to get to various places in Manhattan on it. I'll post a review when I upload the pics.

    I was looking at prices and for the first time I was amazed that the UK IS CHEAPER THAN USA. For example a Specialized Tarmac Comp is about 100 cheaper in UK. Fancy that huh?

    Folk in the US have been buying bike junk from your internet retailer for some time now, for just that reason. I took advantage when the exchange rate was very favorable and saved a (metric) boatload o' cash.

    Go world economy, I guess.

    You can go through the security a couple more times. Should be a hoot.

    I thought you were going to say that since you arrived so early, you were forced to buy a copy of Bicycling Magazine. Tragedy averted!
