I'm sitting in the nicest place I've ever seen in an airport. My traveling companion has gold access to every star alliance airline lounge. This lounge has free drinks, an open self-serve bar, free (good) soup, free (good) sandwich wraps, free wireless internet, free (awesome) cookies. There's even a part with big leather chairs and a big television for each of pair of chairs. Another section has leather chairs with sony stereo systems including cd players and headphones. I don't want to go to France, I just want to sit here the rest of the day.

The lady at the counter even gave my friend and me 4 seats to ourselves on the flight over to Paris. Speaking of Paris, I was a little surprised to load CNN and see "Air-France plane burns on Toronto runway". Perhaps its a bad omen, being as I'm sitting in Montreal, waiting to fly to France. They have all the TVs in the lounge disabled because of the accident in Toronto. I guess so people don't panic, or if its a terrorist thing, so the terrorists don't know whats going on. I guess they assume terrorists don't know how to use the internet. It's about 6:30pm now, I should arrive in France around 8:30am. I need to buy something to read on the ride over or else I might go nuts looking for something to do.

I sat next to a Canadian hippie on the ride from Chicago to Montreal over. I don't think he spoke very much English, but he said 'thank you' after using my pen.
