Heathrow

In Heathrow. Oh my god I've bought too many magazines.

Ate my favorite Pret a Manger UK sandwich -- All Day Breakfast. I really love this airport, esp Terminal 4, except they don't have trolleys anymore.

The JFK Terminal 7 over-development-purgatory

T7 at JFK used to be civilized. Now, after a year-long (over)construction project, it's a bungled overcrowded mess. The bathrooms are disgusting and poorly maintained (um, half the door locks have been broken for over a year and there's only one soap dispenser in the women's room. Gross). There's nowhere quiet to sit and wait -- it used to be calm and quiet near the laptop ports, but now there's a Brookstone there that blares bad bad bad techno remixes of bad bad bad disco songs at top volume.

The vastly reduced the size of the duty free booze-and-beauty store, and moved the bank of pay phones -- excuse me, they reduced the bank of pay phones to just two -- to a main area by gates 4 and 5, right in the fray of things.

Gates 5 and 6 share a tiny seating area, and this afternoon, with British Airways and Iberia boarding from 5 and 6 respectively one after the other, it is a huge clusterf**k of people standing around, sitting on the floor (me) and generally getting crankier and crankier.

Great work guys.

Also I have learned this afternoon that flying on a Sunday late afternoon is horrible. There are too many people.

Also I don't understand British Airways upgrade policies. To get a full r/t business class ticket from jfk to lhr costs 100,000 miles. But after purchasing a ticket, calling up and asking to pay 50,000 miles to upgrade just one part of one leg of the flight? No go.

The best line from my video interview with Tokio Hotel


One of the biggest perks of my job is that I get to meet famous people -- and this afternoon I was lucky enough to spend a little time with the boys of Tokio Hotel at Irving Plaza. They're here touring North America, taking a stab at breaking the American market. Judging from the insane line of teenagers snaked all the way around the block by 3:30 p.m., Tokio Hotel is already well on their way to becoming the next great pop-rock sensation.

The video interview goes up tomorrow both here and at nypost.com, so check back then to see it. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you my favorite line from the interview:

ME: So, what's the difference between American Girls and European girls?

TOM: American girls wear shorter skirts.

Ha!

Influenza

Oh. My. God. I've been clobbered by the flu all weekend. Cold, hot, dizzy, headache, back pain, what fun.

Carl Blucher / White Flag

Carl Blucher, who comes to us from Sweden by way of London, stopped by New York this week to launch his collection, White Flag, at the All That She Wants showroom on Broome Street. While he's a seasoned designer who's already got a burgeoning career in Sweden, this is his first solo endeavor and first Stateside effort.

Valentine's Day

Sometimes I lapse and wistful and I get a little sad about being single, especially on Valentine's Day.

Sometimes I feel ignored.

But then I eat something and feel better.

Also, today I got my first-ever Sky dress, and Oh My God, there's no turning back.

1991 Teen Fashion

Instead of cleaning my apartment in preparation for a houseguest arriving from London tomorrow, I was rooting around my bookshelf and found my Junior High School yearbook. The best pages? The "Today's Fashion" spread featuring representative students from five groups -- Preps, Hoods, Japs, Metal, and Unique. Here's how their styles are described:

"JAPS: Benetton, Big John's, Eg's, Gap, Keds
PREPS: Bass, Gap, Esprit, LL Bean, Dockers, Penny Loafers
HOODS: Fila, Levi's, Uan's, Overalls, Red Lipstick
METAL: Ripped Jeans, metal shirts, High Suede Boots, Flannels, Mini Skirts
UNIQUE: Tie Dye, Bell Bottoms, Platform Shoes, Dangly Earrings."

In retrospect? The most timeless styles are the "Metal" and the "Hoods." Now let me go try to find some "Uan's" (whatever they may be) on eBay...
