    I take 2 airsick pills, get my ipod and magazines/book ready so I don't have to pull them out while people are waiting to get past me in the plane.

    I try to scope out the real fat people waiting to board and make a silent curse on them to keep them from sitting beside me.

    its always entertaining to watch fatties struggle, then i think to myself "they should of thought about that when they were eating for a nation."

    I take two Dramamine an hour before takeoff, then another two a half hour later.

    Also I like to have some booze.

    I buy 2 over priced drinks once I get thru security and I put them in my backpack. 1 water and 1 diet dew.
    Flying dries me out and I cant be bothered waiting on the air whore with that damn cart.

    My preflight ritual is that I drive wherever I need to go. Easy enough.

    I raid the duty free and stock up on minis/mickeys and pop. If it's domestic I drink at a bar. I buy one or two crappy magazines I wouldn't normally buy. on the plane I put my shit under the seat in front, never use the bins. at takeoff I say a quick prayer for us to get there safe. I have no idea why I do that but I send it out to any beings that may have influence over my safe arrival other than the humans.

    I always wear jeans, no shorts or skirts, in case of fire. I count the number of rows to an exit. Then I take a Xanax, followed by red wine, if available.
