Blog it all night

OK, here is the deal:

I have a 6 a.m. flight to Detroit. I’m not sure why I booked that, but I did. Probably doing my part to save the dying newspaper industry.

A 6 a.m. flight means I need to be at the airport around 4:30 as I need to return my rental car. So I have roughly three hours to kill.

When in Boston, I stay with some family who live 30 minutes out of town. I can’t see driving there, sleeping for an hour and driving back. I also can’t see checking into a hotel at this point.

So I’m going to pull an all-nighter. This will be the first all-nighter in my life that didn’t involve either:

• Blackjack

• Driving to Chapel Hill, N.C., to see Bruce Springsteen.

• Studying for a Food Science and Nutrition final I forgot I had junior year.

The plan is to sleep on the plane. Northwest Flight 211 lands in Detroit at 8:15 a.m. I’ll cab to the hotel and catch some more sleep there before getting to the ballpark around 3 p.m. It’s a (relatively) fool-proof plan. Plus my bosses will be thrilled with my economical ways.

In addition, I plan to blog my little adventure. So stick around. And if you have any suggestions on how to kill a few hours in Boston in the middle of the night, let me know.

If only there was a casino.
