HOUSTON – Ever the techno wrestling geek, Bob Kapur filed his report Twitter-style, giving you short bursts of his wacky life as he packs up to leave Houston — but not without a genuine hate on for the airport there.
Tues, Apr 7, 4:43am (Houston time) — What the hell? Get my glasses off the nightstand, and the frame is broken in half. How? Bigger mystery than who drove the white Hummer.
Tues, Apr 7, 5:09am — On way to airport to drop off Doug, get some tape to fix them up. With my tie-dye shirt and taped glasses, just call me Mahatma Dudley.
Tues, Apr 7, 10:37am — After some TV back in the room, head off to Houston’s famed National Museum of Funeral History. No, seriously.
Tues, Apr 7, 11:42am — Among other things is a tribute to dead Popes and U.S. Presidents. But I’m marking out for the original death certificates of all FIVE stooges!
Tues, Apr 7, 12:17pm — Nothing in this world beats an American Denny’s Grand Slam breakfast. The U.S. grits are ten times better than back home.
Tues, Apr 7, 1:48pm — Decide to check into my flight early (5:30 departure). Wanted to buy some booze, but the airport doesn’t have a Duty Free store. Heels.
Tues, Apr 7, 2:13pm — At the food court I buy a $5 sundae. Two steps from my table, I slip on the freshly mopped floor and drop it. I hate the Houston airport.
Tues, Apr 7, 3:05pm — Ran into George “GT Dynamite” Terzis, and talk with him until we board. Arrange to do a story on him in the near future.
Tues, Apr 7, 5:40pm — Wheels up, on my way home. The in-flight movie selection does not include The Wrestler. Too bad, that would have been real appropriate.
Tues, Apr 7, 9:50pm (Toronto time) — Home safe and sound. Thanks for virtual-traveling with me through my ramblings, hope it was fun for you too. See you in Phoenix in 2010!
