Hello All,

I am just waiting for my flight - trying to think of something to do (which does not cost anything). I just wondered what everyone else does to fight the boredom (other than post random stuff on the forum) so that I can take note for future reference!

blab on a cell phone

surf the net: pay bills online, get a myspace account, check emails, post on this forum

do homework (if ya have any)

you gotta pay for it but maybe look into getting a Sony PSP, you can watch movies and play video games with it

sleep uncomfortably on those shitty ass uncomfortable airport chairs (i try this all the time)

i am always in this situation too and these are some things i do, i can probably think of more too so watch out ;)

I am with Fiona on this...I usually read or people watch..sometimes call and let people know where I am-when I'll be there-or call who I just left and let them know all is well..etc...the bar thing isn't a bad idea though ;)

I usually take some books of my own language (Bengali) while go outside. Also some magazines those help me to pass the time.

airplane spotting - airport is good place to persue that hobby

I rarely travel by plane without Beerman but we people-watch or play a travel-sized game or just discuss what we will do when we reach our destination. I also grab a couple paperbacks in case we really get bored. When I flew alone - the bar was my pitstop. Take a book and have a drink.

Find the best looking girl/boy sitting alone and strike up as friendly a conversation as you can.....go on, go for it.

If it doesn't work out, ah well.
