Brilliant, Hong Kong and Singapore are the top rated airports, and those are the two that I may have to spend a night in!

neat. the last place i spent the night in an airport was sick as a dog in heathrow. i woke up around 4 and this old woman had conveniently moved my stuff from the seat to the floor so that she could more easily strike up conversation. but it was cool. the next day all the flights out of chicago were cancelled, and if it weren't for my mom (she's the best) i woud've been spending the night coughing up my organs in o'hare--ewwww.

turns out my mom found a cheap hotel. i signed in, they gave me a warm cookie (it was snowing) and when i turned on the tv? harry potter. alllright

I kind of like sleeping in airports. Has such a dirty nomad feel to it...

Cough cough. Sick as a dog perhaps = a cold and really hungover?
