In Theory, This Could Be Fun

Airport living from 5/14 thru 5/16 in celebration/mourning of the publication of my latest book, “The Fun We’ve Had.”

Any advice on keeping off of security’s radar? Anyone want a shout-out when I get really fucking bored? Anyone want to Skype while I’m leeching off the airport’s Wi-Fi?

Maybe I’ll just watch that Tom Hanks movie and do exactly what he did. Could be good.

Here’s the blog post I wrote about this, whatever this is:

In a big way, being in an airport is a lot like being lost at sea. So many places and possibilities to drift, but not if you don’t already know where it is that you’re going.

I don’t know where I’m going. That’s why I’m not going anywhere.
I’ll be living in an airport for 48hrs.

Beginning 10AM on Wednesday May 14th through Friday May 16th around 10AM: Going nowhere and probably getting into some shit. There’s a good chance I will no longer be human by the end of it. There’s a pretty damn good chance that I’ve never been human. Not to worry, I’ll be online and active during the entire thing.

Odds are you’ll hear from me, be it a tweet, a post on Facebook, or a photo/video on Instagram. I’ll be calling out to everyone while I’m stranded in a state of flux. I’ll also have one of my best writer friends around, Kyle Muntz, hanging around, surviving this ridiculousness with me.

 Yes I’m serious. Look how serious I am:


Will it be fun? I hope so. If not, I’ll be at the airport bar.

      Starting any sentence with “in a big way” is as lazy as writing gets. Second place? Starting a sentence with “odds are.” Is this Cliche Day at HTMLG?

      1. Traynor, you’re super duper cool. And smart. Oh, my, so smart.
      2. The airport bar is really expensive so I hope you have fun, cuz $10 drinks go down as fast as $2 drinks, you know?

      You think airport bartenders are as easy to bribe as regular bartenders?

      how do you bribe a bartender?

      Don’t know but it hasn’t worked yet.

      $ works. Tipping heavily but not creepily definitely gets quicker service, stronger drinks, and more amicable chat (or more conscientious distance).

      It did look like it was fun
