NYC – Austin, 5:35 flight

Brokeback celeb, first class w/ iPod.

Post Flight Update
: In case you're wondering who you should be looking at,
it's the blond dude with the little pony tail in first class. Only
person in first class. The flight attendant came over to my seat later
(the one next to me had goopy stuff on it and she was affixing a "do
not occupy" label to it) and said, "You know who that is in first
class?" And I said yup.

"I feel bad for him. He asked if we served food."

I said he could have my chips I'd brought onboard if he wanted. She demurred.

Silly celebrity. Trix are served on actual real flights, not doofy
small jets to Texas towns. Methinks he's here to start work on "Tree of Life," which has Austin a location on IMDb.

    OM gawsh!!!! Heath is a mesmerizing actor. Very good. Very understated.

    How cool it is that you saw him. 🙂

    Totally unexpected!

    But out of JFK there are only two direct carriers to Austin — Delta and Jetblue — so my guess is you’re more likely to see famous folks if you take those routes.

    The other times I’ve seen “names’ on flights to or from Austin were Ze Frank (of the Web), Barry Scheck (of the OJ Simpson case) and the Texas governor, who was ferried not through the terminal but directly to the plane on the tarmac by a limousine. He waved at everyone as we boarded like he was campaigning!

    I probably could have put this information in the post. LOL!

    I LOVE Ze Frank… he’d probably consider himself an accidental celebrity, but the guy is brilliant. I’d love to sit with him for half an hour over many, many famous folk. Plane or no plane. More for the graphic designer inside of him more than anything, but sort of an artist’s artist, if that makes any sense. How cool that you actually recognized him. I think that’s half the battle!

    Yay for interesting flights! 🙂
