Stopover at Newark, NY

The flight from Oslo to New York was really good ! I shared a three seater with a nice lady from a company that hires out costumes for filmmaking and theatre setups as well as for private parties, Annik. She was a great conversationist and we had lots of fun during that trip. Annik travelled with 3 colleagues and they were also flying to Houston with the same flight as myself today. The purpose of their visit was to participate to a convention for costumes to bring home to complete their stock for their company.

I also watched a few comedies. Both movies I have wanted to see since I heard of them, but had no time to see at the theatres yet. For the first movie we got some food and we ordered some nice Cava to go with that. My ultimate purpose was also to sleep some during this 9 hour long trip (one does what one needs too to make time fly huh?)

Horrible Bosses
Nick hates his boss, mostly because he’s expected to work from before sunrise to after sunset and his boss, Mr. Harken, calls him out for being a minute late and blackmails him so he can’t quit. Dale hates his boss, Dr. Julia Harris, because she makes unwelcome sexual advances when he’s about to get married. But Dale is on that pesky list of child offenders so he can’t quit. Kurt actually likes his job and his boss, well, up until his boss dies and the boss’s coked-out, psychopathic son takes over. But who would be crazy enough to quit their jobs in such poor economic times? Instead Nick, Dale and Kurt drunkenly and hypothetically discuss how to kill their bosses, and before they know it, they’ve hired a murder consultant to help them pull off the three deeds.

Once that movie was done I started Drive, which I have already seen and recommended here, but having already seen it I quickly fell asleep during this one and stayed asleep until we were almost past Greenland.

Right about here I started watching my second movie (Drive doesn’t count as I slept through most of it) and by now Annik had finished watching Horrible Bosses as well and she started the same film as I did due to all my outbursts of laughter during the first few minutes.

Crazy, Stupid, Love
At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dreamgood job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart.

But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his perfect life quickly unravels.

The hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling).
In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that can’t be found at Supercuts or The Gap. But despite Cal’s makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can’t be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.

Flying over Canada I waved down to my friend Anique-Marie in Montreal despite MTL being covered by clouds. Oh well. It is the thought that counts, right?

The ladies from Kostymeavdelingen were really nice and Annik had even attended the same College (DPH) as I did as a first grader the same year I took my second year there. Hella had a friend that lives in Costa Rica and all 4 ladies were really nice company.

When we landed in New York I stayed with them and we went to pick up our luggage, check it in again and after we had checked in to the domestic connection area we went for dinner. I had Sushi which tasted really good, but the girls all went for the more american style of Hamburgers and fries and then we went to out gate. Our flight was a bit delayed, but we had fun :D
