March 28, 2005
In response to the MSN screen name "Back in London and in need of entertainment"
Terry: Blow something up
Me: Hmm tempting
Me: /Goes to make napalm
Terry: I'd suggest going to find a pub but there wont be one open
Me: Blow up a pub?
Me: Hmm but they're full of explosive stuff!
Me: I should log our conversations. So much intellectual content!
And so I did.
I'm back from the holiday, with an impressive lack of broken limbs, despite skiing Friday night in the dark. You'd think that "night skiing" would be accompanied by some flood-lighting, but obviously not.
Anyway, just here to share something that has been bugging me – shops in airports. Many of them I can understand, but surely trying to sell people suitcases in an airport is rather pointless? If I'm at an airport, chances are I'm either
- Travelling with luggage (in which case I have a suitcase already)
- Travelling without luggage (in which case I don't need one and buying one would be a pointless waste of money, not to mention the fact that I would now have an empty suitcase to check in), or
- Meeting/saying goodbye to someone (in which case I wouldn't be venturing into the airport far enough to find the shop).
Who's with me on this?
