a short aim conversation about my flight

I’m not one for posting AIM conversations, but it’s a lot easier.

[00:50] jimeviljim: then there was the baby in front of me
[00:50] jimeviljim: the parents were trying to ween him off his pacifier
[00:50] alison: oh that’s worse
[00:51] alison: on the plane!?!
[00:51] jimeviljim: and I’m thinking, why do this during a flight?
[00:51] alison: omg, horrible inconsiderateness!
[00:51] jimeviljim: and i overheard them
[00:51] jimeviljim: “he only gets it for 20 minutes” blah blah
[00:51] jimeviljim: so
[00:51] jimeviljim: I have
[00:51] jimeviljim: a plan
[00:51] jimeviljim: I am going to start carying around a pacifier with me on planes
[00:51] jimeviljim: now I don’t know if this will ever happen again
[00:51] jimeviljim: and I don’t know how the parents will react
[00:51] jimeviljim: but I do know I’ll have a lot more options if it ever happens again

Also, is the text font here too small? I think I want a new theme. I’ll miss the random German titles, though.

Picture 130 oz. of popcorn. 130 ounces. Yeah. No google conversions or anything, just picture what you think 130 ounces of popcorn would be.

Apparently, it’s a medium. How depressing — I was expecting like a Scrooge McDuck style money-bin popcorn experience… and only got a medium. Lame.

I’m watching “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and I had forgotten between seeing it in the theater and aquiring the DVD how absolutely terrible the movie is. Ugh. I will admit it’d be pretty hard to convert the literary genius of Adams onto a screen, but wow. They screwed up, bad.

My major reason for posting is I suspect I may be getting sick. There has been a guy with, I swear, whooping cough or some of deadly strain of, well, whooping cough. I don’t know anything else that could describe it. If I have caught this diseased man’s illiness, I will extract a revenge of such large proportions it may have to wait to February so I can quit shortly after enacting it. Or I’ll at least pee on his chair.

err, yeah

The post preceding this was in a bit better taste before they announced there was a casualty in one of the cars.
