(Started, wish you were there for this trip with me, especially to tell me what was funny about my first flight yesterday being delayed, and then rushing to the gate in Washington (Dulles) for my connection only to see on the "Departures" board that my flight to Denver was... CANCELLED. Ha ha ha. Spent the night in a Virginia Hyatt with 197 (yes, really, 197) of my fellow Denver Cancellees.)
...and the first thing I read was your Manny Manual.
And sorry to hear about your flight. Hope Massachusetts treated you well, anyway!
However, United Airlines (3 delayed flights and one cancelled) sucked.
I threw my United Miles card in the trash.

(Text and tone inspired by the blog. I'm not really like this. - Jennifer)
BUYER AND SELLER. In the interests of interleague harmony, the Olde Towne Team will pay the buyer $7 Million to cover Mr. Ramirez's salary. You MAY NOT expect this consideration should you employ Mr. Ramirez's excellent and outstanding services next year.
HANDI-HOUSE. The Dodgers shall maintain a Handi-House in left field should Mr. Ramirez decide to relieve himself in the course of a game. Mr. Ramirez will indicate the desired temperature. Any reading materials provided shall only feature stories favorable to Mr. Ramirez.
MOBILE MANNY. The term "cell" is not used as we will not associate Mr Ramirez with a phrase suggesting an unfortunate prison experience. The Dodgers, in designing Mr. Ramirez's custom-made uniform, shall have a mobile phone pocket for Mr. Ramirez. Time is to be called on the field whenever Mr. Ramirez accepts or makes a call to his agent, Mr. $cott Bora$.
A GPS DEVICE will be made available to Mr. Ramirez should the Dodgers request his presence and services even at the most inconvenient of times. Inconvenient requests for Mr. Ramirez include the team taking the field at the start of a game.
MANNY'S CHEERLEADERS. Cheerleaders - - very impressionable, gorgeous, multi-cultural, young, limber and eager - - shall be hired to cheer on Mr. Ramirez. Every breath Mr. Ramirez takes and every move Mr. Ramirez makes will be accompanied by loud and sincere cheers of sufficient volume to be heard throughout the park. Mr. Ramirez will personally interview every cheerleader applicant at a time and place of his choosing. The cheerleaders are to be handsomely compensated (Yo, 'bro, we saved you 7 Mil, right?). You're to give the money in cash to Mr. Ramirez and he'll decide distribution.
MANNY THE MANE MAN. Mr. Ramirez's flowing locks will be personally attended to by the finest hairdressers in Tinseltown. Mr, Ramirez, as we know, clearly outshines the brightest stars in Hollywood.
MR. FRANK McCOURT, Dodgers owner, has indicated he'd make his guest house available to Mr. Ramirez. We accept the offer provided Mr, Ramirez gets clear title to the property, no taxes are owed and Mr. Ramirez gets to sell it outright.
PRESIDENTIAL PARDON. The Dodgers shall petition President Bush to issue a full and complete pardon to Mr. Ramirez for any indiscretions and slights so falsely attributed to his sterling character. We suggest you contact Mr. Bush before he moves out of the White House on January 20, 2009.
