Thanks for the recap, and the kind thoughts. I am sitting in the Newark airport, and am very ready to be at home. Trip was wonderful.

I may have overestimated my capacity for trying to catch up on this site at this time, however, 5 1/2 hour layover or no.

5 1/2 hours?? Those Radiohead protests are fucking shit up. The last time I had a wait that long, there wasn't any wi-fi to speak of, but at least that crazy-ass Packers/Cardinals wildcard was on. Probably don't want to remind you of that one. I remember I listened to New Adventures In Hi-Fi on the flight back that night, which worked remarkably well. I always prefer to fly at night.

I'm rambling because it drowns out the tour stats.

That was the one REM CD I brought with me. Not that I listened to it while driving. But I did play my REM songs on shuffle on the iPod on the ferry ride to and from the Aran Islands. It was lovely.

Cori, do you have any stats on how many people will be on your next flight?

I've got a 5 hour layover coming up in a week, and I'm dreading it, but that's on a long haul international that I only booked a week ago, for flying next week, so my choice of flights (vs cost) was somewhat limited. 5 1/2 for a domestic is mad. 5 1/2 in Newark, I'd go do something for a couple of hours in New York. Join a protest against Radiohead or something.

If there was ever a nice day in Ireland (unlikely), I would have played the shit out of Murmur. I may be unusual in this regard, but early REM is generally feel-good music for me.

I know the flight outsold the Collapse Into Now tour.

There's no chance in hell that this becomes a running joke, but the Radiohead protests are amusing me today.

Yeah, I'm sure Cori has some nice human interest stories about her trip, but it's crucial that we get some info on the various lodgings she stayed at and how close to capacity they were filled.

It was supposed to just be 4. And I chose that one before I learned that I'd clear US customs in Shannon, making a long layover unnecessary. Oh well.

But it's got a view of the Manhattan Skyline, so it all evens out. I had a pass for the Continental Presidents' Lounge, so I'm chillin' all fancy and shit.

Does that mean you have a US entry stamp with Shannon marked as your point of entry? I don't know why, but I love that when you get the Eurostar from London to Paris, you clear French border control in London before getting on the train, and so you have an entry stamp with London listed as the point of entry to France. I think I just like how much that would piss off the English of centuries gone by. Go back in time and show them that without explanation and they'd probably start a pre-emptive war.

No, it doesn't indicate anything but the oh-so-sexy Department of Homeland Security, USA. Yee-ha.

Also, I suspect 1441 is the only statistic you need to know?
