Rachel advocate

Ana Marie Cox is guest-hosting the Rachel Maddow Show tonight!

I am VERY EXCITED about this. As you may (or may not) recall, the last time she was scheduled to host, turned out to be the Friday after Michael Jackson died. That Friday, they canceled Maddow in favor of non-stop MJ coverage and Ana Marie ended up going home to take care of her sick puppy. (Her actual dog, not her significant other, by the way.)

Hopefully no celebrity deaths will impinge on tonight's awesomeness. I'm especially hoping for a good throw from Keith to Ana Marie. The last two night's throws to Rachel have been truly adorable. You should check out last night's throw. Rachel was cracking up over Keith's #1 Story about Glenn Beck. It had to do with Glenn's analysis of the art and statuary...or whatever it's called, at the Rockefeller Plaza building.

Can you imagine how much more insane Beck would be if Man At The Crossroads was still there?

I'll have to watch the festivities on TIVO because Hubby and I are going out to dinner with Ivan. We're going to La Briciola, an Italian restaurant. He says it's his friend's restaurant, but I don't know if that refers to actual ownership. Ivan says he wants to take us out to dinner, which might mean he wants to pay, but since we're DINKS and he's our single, still-going-to-school friend, I don't think we'll let him.

Three day weekend coming up! YAY!
fatuous lunatic

OK, I'm an idiot...but I had help.

Admin called me the other day to book a car in Jackson, MS. We hadn't done the air reservation, so I didn't have the flight information. I know she said Jackson and I knew she meant Jackson, but for some reason my fingers decided she meant Jacksonville. As in Florida. The three letter code for Jackson is JAN and the three letter code for Jacksonville is JAX. I booked the car in JAX.

This is definitely a screw-up on my part. Client got to JAN and there was no car rental there for him. HOWEVER, I did send a copy of the itinerary to the admin, and IF she'd opened it up and looked at it, she would very clearly have seen JACKSONVILLE, FL all over the damn thing. At which point she could have called me up and said, "You idiot, I said JACKSON."

Since no such call came in prior to the client arriving in Jackson, I have to assume the admin did not look at the itinerary.

She said it wasn't a problem, so I'm guessing he was able to get a rental and there was no problem. Therefore I'm not as worried about this as I should be.

Maybe she knows she should have looked at the itinerary. Or maybe she did and didn't notice.

Obviously I really NEED that three day weekend.
