Killing Time in YVR

So I have about 3 hours to kill here in Vancouver before my flight leaves so I am just kicking back in the Maple Leaf Lounge and they have some free computers so I thought that I .

I am sitting here listening to some guy who is half way across the lounge from me talk to his friend about these awesome sandwiches that he made and how he is sad that the gave one to this person. And how he saw his dad and his dad has a bad back. Next I got to hear about how he is drinking a vodka and soda and his partner is drinking a caesar and since it is free here in the lounge they are free pouring. Now I know you can probably all tell how impressed I am to hear this conversation. I just wish that people would be a little more couretous of others. Mind you, there was this lady sitting at the computer next to me who has been complaining non-stop to the guy at the front desk about people who talk to loud and she was sitting her muttering under her breath. Oh. . .now his phone died - damn! And I was hoping to hear all about his great aunt's colonoscopy! Just kidding! Oh we just some big hugs and kisses and a happy new year (he called whoever back)

Well this chiquita is slowly crashing and just wants to get on the plane and go to sleep. I just hope that the LED lights are set to "sunset" and not "sunrise" when I get on the plane. For those of you who want to check it out, go to Aircanada.com and go under What's New and look at Executive First Suites and you can watch this little video of what my flying experience will be.

Oh yah, one more thing, Air Canada splurged b/c it is New Year's and we got this little bag of chocolate almonds (as opposed to the Lindorf chocolate) and it was count em, not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 almonds Go wild Air Canada!!!!!

I think I am going to go for a tour of the airport and see if I can find a Suduko book - I forgot mine at home and it is a good time killer. Au revoir mon ami!

Thanks for the chuckles. I am left wondering only about your IPOD.

Unforseen esthetics incidents? Well every girl can identify with that! And ya, I agree: your poor Dad! (*there's always a down side to the luxury lounges in airports.... too bad they don't screen for idiots! ha, ha, ha...)

Keep up the commentaries because all your office mates are missing you, and we know that you're not missing us! Can't wait for the next installment!
