It Amazes me

  • I had a very interesting (to say the least) flirtation with a captain this week. As I mentioned in a Facebook post some time ago, the majority of the compliments I get about my hair are from white men. There’s something about being natural that they seem to like.

  • Hey guys, this has been a busy month for me.  I just entered a short film at the Nomading Film Festival as per the terms of conditions, I can't show you the final video until the film festival shows it first in June.  As soon as I'm allowed to, I will post it for you.  Also, my Jamaican documentary shoot is coming up on May 23.  I am still accepting dona

  • Do I have a few gems to share with you this week!  I’ve been flying so much this past month that I’ve become somewhat immune to the absurdity that abounds in my professional life.  It’s come to the point where I have to remind myself to write down these encounters because I’ve been forgetting.  Well these episodes I surely didn’t forget.  Let

  • Greetings!  This week in the skies was quite lovely.  Yesterday I was catching a grown man's vomit into a garbage bag. Let me explain. We were in Chicago on our way to NY.  These two guys board and they are obviously hung over.  Since I don't like diverting for any reason at all.  I checked in on them before we closed the cabin door to make sure the

  • Of all the umpteen flights I operated this week, a simple turn between and  Aquadilla and Orlando warranted a blog post.  For those of you who don't know, Aquadilla is in Puerto Rico.  For my Jamaicans it's the equivalent of country people coming to town for the first time.  Think of the Oliver episode when he  was standing at the airport in Kingston in

  • I did the Latin American tour (Bogota, San Juan, Santo Domingo)  this week and managed to have one salad.  Better than last week when I had condensed milk with everything.  So that is an improvement in my book.  These trips are interfering with my Operation Bikini by Birthday plan.  I must be in a bikini come November when I go to the Pacific Islands wi

  • Tick, tick, tick...BOOM!  Well almost.  I swear I was a good flight attendant last week.  But some passengers were trampling on my last nerve and nodding and smiling didn't seem to do the trick anymore.  Instead, I went to back galley and composed a list.  The "It Amazes Me List" deals with the silly things that passengers do no matter how long they hav
