Flight To Unknown

So I was done with my Vegas trip and was back in Los Angeles for a layover before taking a red-eye back to Hong Kong. The airport security was horrendous. I queued for 30 minutes before I could even remotely catch a glimpse of the x-ray machines and metal-detectors before being told that I was in the wrong line.

So out of the queue as I traced the correct queue hoping to find the end soon. The queue never did end as I walked and walked. It wasn't until I was back at the airport's front (at the glass sliding doors are where people come in from the street side) before I joined the queue. It was really really bad. The backlog of people was so severe that they even had to terminate the special queue reserved for First/Business/FF Elite passengers.

The only consolation was that it was a moving jam as constant little shuffles forward did take our mind away from the sucky feeling that was habouring inside everybody's chest. While in the jam, we started to talk cock with those around us as our situation unwittingly carved out a camaraderie among us as we lamented and bitched about everything together.

Then there were the breaks at the end of the conversations, yes it took so long that we (I!) ran out of topics to talk about. >.<

That was when my eyes started to wandered all over the place when I spotted this.

Continental Airlines Flight CO 6316 to "Unknown".
Wah... sounds like some Twilight Zone or Tales From The Crypt episode wor.

Eh.... send me a postcard if anyone from "Unknown" is reading this ok? Okthnxbye.

p.s. As I was writing this entry, it kinda reminded me of GF 2.x. She was the type who nevers make decisions with answers like "Don't Know" or "Anything" and then give you the 25-cent black face when you took the liberty to decide for the two of you and she was not happy with your selection. I had so many "WTF?" moments during that period of time that I would have gladly drugged her and dragged her unconscious body down to the tattoo parlour and have "WTF?" tattooed on her forehead and letting her find out for herself when she wakes up and look herself in the bathroom mirror in the morning.

Jay: "So where you wanna go?"
GF 2.x: "Dunno."
On hindsight, perhaps she was referring to "Unknown"? If only I'd known earlier. *sigh*

Chocolate Gal & Barffie: My folks are also like that. >.<

I mean, come on! The rule is that once you have given up the right to decide to the other party, you cannot take it back midway nor criticise the other party's choice.

I mean you were given the opportunity to decide when you had the chance right?

It's like "I don't really know what I want but since you are my you should know me best! ... What do you mean that you can't read minds? I thought we were soul mates?"

This is when you count your blessings of having a PSP with you.

Kelly: I had my book with me but it is hard to concentrate while constantly on the look out to move forward.

Sunflower: Aiyah... wasted. I would have loved to have a postcard from Unknown.
