I’m at the airport early today, and I learned two things:

1) If you don’t print your boarding pass ahead of time, you might get lucky and get assigned a better seat. I moved from 26A– second-to-last row in the back– to 5A, which I’m hoping is a “premium” seat with more than twelve inches of leg room. Yay!

2) The TSA is no longer using metal detectors at all, and forcing everyone to go through the millimeter-wave machines. Ugh. Of course I opted out, which meant a pleasant early-morning groping. Good times.
