Should have a hotel attached to the terminal considering its a international airport. Only reason I mentioned a spear tip out of a mirror shard is it can be used as a Bo staff after the shard has broken and spears are cheap easy weapons to make

I would have thought so as well, but the airport webpage makes no mention of an attached hotel and just directed me to a bunch of nearby establishments.

So...what kind of weapon that can be make of in a hotel room with available kit in the bathroom and the bedroom? Aside from shard of glass as weapon. And a lighter.

Curtain rod club? Mini-bar molotovs? I wouldn't suggest using mirror shards as a spear; they'd break too easily. Wardrobe doors might be ripped off and used as a shield.

Checking out hotels around SeaTac, it looks like the nearest large multi-storey ones (I'm imagining a big hotel from your post since Sherry could just escape out a window if she was less than two or three floors up) ones are the Radisson and the Crowne Plaza. I'll check out their websites for pictures of their rooms and see if I have any more ideas.

...okay, so you want Sherry to be staying at the Crowne Plaza. It's furnishings look much less sturdy than the Radisson's; if Sherry managed to break a leg off that desk she could use it as a club. Unfortunately I don't think either have usable curtain rails; both look like they're attached to flimsy plastic runners recessed where they'd be trickier to rip out.

And yes; I did just offer hotel advice based on zombie apocalypse survivability. Now I'm going on Google Maps to find the quickest route to the airport from Downtown Seattle, assuming that the traffic's going to be...murder! 8)

Weird. All the international airports I've been to have had hotels attached to the terminal. Oh well.

Nice pun.

I know SeaTac pretty well. I don't remember a hotel being directly off of it either. But my god is it a busy airport.

The only airports I've been to is the Sacramento Airport and SeaTac. Totally not coincidental that those are the only two places I've ever flown to (Yearly trips to family)

Sacramento Airport seems rather quiet. Been there when the main entrance is almost entirely empty. Well, maybe not main entrance, but wherever we enter can be oddly deserted.

Weird question, but do Americans have a word for the snack you eat during a work break?

DFW in Dallas sucks ass. Its the third bustiest in the US. LAX sucks ass second busisest and then Atlanta international is first busiest. DFW is a major hub city same for LAX. Atl is a big hub for both passenger and cargo flights.

Well, I don't believe I have ever been outside the Los Angeles airport to see the traffic, but I can second your father with regard to the internal busy-ness of the Los Angeles airport.

Ularn wrote:Weird question, but do Americans have a word for the snack you eat during a work break?

I'm curious about that as well. I suppose that it's called something besides lunch though?

No, just for whatever you eat during that break, like in Scotland we'd call it your 'piece' (piece is slang for sandwich) and the short morning break would be your 'piece-break' to distinguish it from your lunch break when you'd rest for longer and eat something more substantial. In Australia and New Zealand they call it 'smoko' because it started off as a cigarette break. I'm just wondering if Americans had any kind of similar word?

Nope. We have 3 breaks thanks to the US department of Labor and they are Just 1st break 15 min, lunch break 30 mins, and 2nd break 15 mins.

Min=minutes.

All I can think of is the general term "Lunch" to describe the "Lunch break" you have at noon to go and do whatever it is you do on the lunch break (my dad goes on a walk usually, occasionally getting something as well)

His friend paid for him to visit Los Angeles, so he had been driven back to the airport, and it sounded like it was a joke.

I haven't heard of it for the workplace, but if I might contribute for where I live in Canada, in the middle schools, the 10 minute break about an hour and a half before lunch is called nutrition break, because that's when you get your nutrition before lunch. That said, I haven't seen it anywhere else, but I suppose it wasn't what you were asking about.

The smoking thing is interesting though, as that's what the Hudson Bay Company French Canadian voyageurs used to do. They used to measure distances by how many (Carrot tobacco) pipe breaks it would take to reach a destination.

Sure. I might have a funny scenario for him to happen to bump into her...

Don't worry about Thea for anybody here. I'm going to have them arrive whenever the safe zone thing happens.
