Highlight of my trip so far

I'm in the Dayton airport and Jerome the Laptop is plugged into the bottom plug of an outlet shared with one of those cell phone battery boosters that they have in airports. While I do not consider myself particularly strong at estimation, I don't think it would be exaggerating to guess that about 50% of the people who walk past actually remark out loud, "Look, cell phone recharging." The number is pretty impressive, considering how many of the other 50% are travelling alone and are therefore probably only remarking it inside their head, instead of to their travel partners. This...

Impressions of the Houston airport, in haiku form

Wandering, sleepy A golf cart runs me over Then another one Golf carts everywhere Ferry old and invalid And lazy people Familiar transport But elsewhere the golf carts beep Here drivers mumble She says: "Excuse me" Just before I am mowed down "Bump" under her wheels In Texas, roadkill: Car versus armadillo Golf cart versus srah...

Let us all take our pennyfarthing bicycles to the aero-port!

'Dammit, Johnny, you know I love my Big Beef 'n Cheddar!'

I will be flying from Dayton to Atlanta from about 3-4:30 today, then from Atlanta to Seattle from about 7 (EDT) to 9:30 (PDT). In all my 9 or so hours of transit, I understand that I will receive complimentary beverage service and maybe up to three snack items for the journey. I'm leaving town at 11am in order to drive to the airport, which means that I will have two meals to cover on the road. I brought myself a cheese sandwich to tide myself over, but I imagine that by the time I arrive in Atlanta, I will...

Foul, fetid, fuming, foggy Philadelphia (airport)

To my great surprise, I went to Philadelphia last week. I'd known for weeks that I was going to Pennsylvania, but I hadn't realized that the town I was going to is basically a suburb of Philadelphia and that my hotel was even within the city limits. So I apologize to all of you Brotherly Love Citizens that I did not warn you of my impending arrival. I thought I was going to some town a ways out from Teh Big City. And who knew that cities on the east coast had trains and things like public transportation? It somehow...

Thoughts from Detroit Metro Airport

The guy at the check-in desk asked if I was over 18. Sigh. I asked him if my bag was small enough to carry on and he looked at it for a while and judged that I should check it. I shouldn't have asked - it probably would have passed.In my rush to get out of the house this morning, I skipped brushing my teeth, justifying it by telling myself that it would give me something to do while I waited for my flight. Now my toothbrush has been checked and I am The Great Untoothbrushed. Waaaaaah!I am also The...
