The last airport I found myself starving at, I paid like $20 for a small tray of Nori rolls that tasted like ... mmm ... nothing.
Even the wasabi had no kick.
We ate them like rabid dogs anyhoo, complaining about the price.
As you do.
( P.S. - I can't STAND U.S. McDonalds, but UK and Aus. Maccas is fine. However, I do look forward to my next dose of Taco Bell.
Because i'm common, and happy being so. Sometimes ;)

I have to admit that I had one of my best meals ever in an airport: it was in July, 2001, and I had a several hour layover in Brussels Airport: there was a restaurant which claimed to be an Italian trattoria: somewhat sceptical, I ordered a carpaccio with salad, bread and a half liter of chianti. The whole meal turned out to be to die for. Oh, would that there were meals like that in US airports!

The moral of the story?
A half-liter of chianti will solve most problems.

Actually, truth be told, the chianti was why I was willing to risk the restaurant in the first place. I really wanted a drink, and had no local currency on hand: most of the bars seemed not to take credit cards for checks less than $10, and so I decided to buy a meal as well.
One of the more delightful culinary surprises I have had in my still too-short life!

Look at the bright side. Nobody next to you on the plane had TB, hopefully. :P

The very worst part about Bad Grandma's funeral (any day now! maybe!) is going to be flying up there for the damn thing.
I have not flown since before 9-11. Not for any particular reason; I just haven't. My biggest fear is that I will commit some sort of horrible modern-day flying faux pas and get arrested in freaking CLEVELAND or someplace.

Sounds like caffeine withdrawal to me.
And was that a Pee Wee reference I just read?
Were we separated at birth?

Well, we ARE the same age.

As I recall, the precise quote is:
And Boy are my WINGS tired,
as spoken by Terry Terradactyl, in, I think, episode 01.
We only ever got a tiny handful of episodes here, but practically swallowed the ones we did get whole.

Ouch. The way you described that headache gave me sympathy tingles. Must. Stop. Reading. Now.
