No snow globes allowed!

Notes from a semi-grueling flight:

There are signs in 1988 holiday cheer font all over LaGuardia: "No snow globes allowed in carry-ons. They must be packed in your luggage." I know, I know, it's the liquids ban, but there's also this type of snowglobe threat.

Overheard: "You're Rebecca? I'm Rowena! That's easy to remember because of Ivanhoe!

The eighteen-ish guy sitting next to me on the flight was reading a black pleather-bound book with gold gilt edging on the pages and a red ribbon to mark his place. "Are you reading Neil Strauss's The Game?" I asked. "How's that working out for you?"

"It's just for entertainment, ma'am."
