Off Topic

A vacation doesn't really begin until the first drink in an airport bar.

are you off on your hols Enty? All your OT's recently are holiday related. Hope it's somewhere warm and bacon filled.

...and doesn't end until you have to post bail? Phoning it in, are we?

Sugar said...

Careful not to get too drunk!

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Is Enty trying to tell us he's leaving us? Who is in charge when he's gone?

auntliddy said...

Dont drink and certainly not overpaying for bland airport drinks ! Lets get on a new topic, which is what should I have for lunch? Keep in mind it will prob serve as dinner yoo. Oh, and i cant eat fruit, veggies, dairy or hi fat foods. Pretty bad digestive issues. Okay, lets hear it!!

Enty is probably an 18 yr old girl about to head off on her 1st overseas visit to the Netherlands. I hope she enjoys her 1st beer.

Wrong. The doobie on the drive to the airport or before putting your helmet on and starting the motorcycle.

@liddy My acid flared up and I had a hard time with what to eat. I ended up with Progresso chicken and rice soup and a light blueberry yogurt.

Bacon Ranch said...

Wow auntliddy. Sounds like it's rice cakes and tofu for you. With a side of chicken.

Jacq said...

False. Cause I have my first vacation drink the second I can find one after work ends.

Sugar said...

His toaster?

Violet said...

Liddy :( for you - what is life without toasted bagel and peanut butter.

Who waits until they get to tbe airport?
Although, if flying, I always feel like it begins once I get to airport and am ready to board....the bar;weather it's the bar in the sky or pre-sky.

Wendy?

@auntliddy. Oat bran.

The day I turned 21, I was in an airport and decided that celebrating 21 meant a bar visit.

So much anticipation for so much disappointment. The only bars I've been to since are the ones that you get to sit in when the rest of the restaurant is full.

But I still maintain a place in my heart for this bar and bouncer.

Tinned tuna.

Gayeld said...

Vacation doesn't officially start until the luggage is dumped in the room and you're sitting at the hotel bar.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Are chances are better with the toaster, Gayeld.

*our

You know wassup

aemish said...

{{{hugs4Liddy}}} my nephew had to have surgery for something like that and now he's 90% back to normal..

TalksTooMuch said...

Right???? Because apparently they "can't" serve you on the plane at 7 am, OR at 9 am. Like WHATEVER! I was on VACATION! Boooooo WJ

Violet said...

TTM - you can get a beer in a pub at 8am round here. It's a very salubrious area. Maybe the plane staff thought you looked like you might cause trouble.

@TTM, the booze laws are so weird. I was visiting a friend in another state and we were planning to make champagne cupcakes for a wedding shower the next day. Got up early and I made a store run for ingredients. The checker at the grocery store (who looked all of 17) informed me that they couldn't sell me the 2 bottles of Brut extra-dry until 7AM. I went Starbucks and came back once my 15-minute shopping ban had been lifted.

The cupcakes were pretty freaking awesome, though.

TalksTooMuch said...

I even brought up the fact that it was 9 in Toronto, but nooooooo! I never cause trouble when drinking, Violet, I'm a lover, not a fighter.

Procrastibator said...

It's midday somewhere in the world. Cruel.

Procrastibator said...

I want to go there.

Froggy England said...

I'm not sure of the point of this blind, my vacation always starts with a drink in the airport bar,,,I thought everyone's did? I'm quite serious,,,

Sherry said...

Nibbled on the last of my awesome tuna salad. Only one serving of the lemon asparagus and fiddle fern risotto leftover from last nights meal was claimed by the roommate.

Sherry said...

I'm with you Jacq.

Sherry said...

Seven, you must have been in the south. At TGIFridays we couldn't serve alcohol until 1PM on Sunday brunch. Used to tell the out of towners it was because the Baptists didn't get out of church until then and no one gets a jump on drinking before them.

auntliddy said...

Aemish and all- thanks for being so nice!!!! Im verklempt!! Ate some chocolate, still thinking abiut real food, lol

MovingOn said...

Personally, I love airport bars and hotel bars. You usually have a good reason to drink at, otherwise, inappropriate hours and the people watching can't be beat.

BeckyMae said...

It's not a vacation till I've had a drink in the airline lounge! Plus it's free....yay!!!

Seachica said...

Screw that. Did anyone catch the season finale of The Americans? I want to know how Nina is going to survive this!

auntliddy said...

Sea, i still smell a rat. Like that guy nina slept with is doubke agent. Anyway, he gave her a load of money, remember? She cld go to airport , ask to use ladies room, and disappear. Thats what i think will happen. I didnt think stan cld go thru with it anyway. The questions about involving the kids are great!

Erik said...

Liquor laws are so stupid. Here in Minnesota, you can't buy booze in grocery stores (other than 3.2 beer) or on Sundays. (Yet assholes can get wasted at Vikings games. Such idiocy.)

MadLyb said...

My vacation begins once the plane has gently touched down onto the runway, and I've unclenched those parts of my body that were clenched during the excruciatingly long and terror-inducing hours of the flight.

My vacation doesn't truly begin until I have successfully retrieved my carry-on luggage from the overhead compartment, disembarked down the causeway without falling on my ass, and am confidently strutting through the airport with carry-on bag slung over my right shoulder.

Erik said...

@Seachica I love the Americans. One of the best shows lately. I doubt Nina will survive, and I can't wait to see how they handle Paige's recruitment (how awkward will THAT be-although, things are awkward enough now; that scene with Phillip, Elizabeth and Paige sitting at the picnic table, while Henry was running around flying a kite spoke volumes).

There's always Hudson :-)

FlirtyChick74 said...

My vacation begins with a celebratory drink before the taxi arrives. And another one at the airport or on the plane (although I prefer the airport as the drinks on the plane are awful).

Tell that to Gregg Jarrett Enty!
