Asian airlines first class make US Airlines look like a joke.

I recently took a short vacation in Asia visiting Shanghai, Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore with a brief stop in Seoul. I flew a total of 4 different airlines, all first class. I'm not going to tell you the US airline I flew but considering the fare for a 12 hour flight was over $4,000, it was a joke compared to the amenities and service I experienced on Singapore Air, Cathay Pacific and Asiana.

The Check-in facilities and lounges were a sign of things to come. All of the Asian airlines have separate facilities whereas I had to wait for about 15 minutes in the US airline's queue because they were checking in a bunch of yabos who were obviously not flying first. The lounges and amenities and service available in them are like comparing accommodations at the 4 Seasons to the Holiday Inn. I'm sure you can guess which is which.

The first thing you notice when you get on these flights is that the flight attendants on Asian airlines are beautiful young ladies who make you feel welcome and understand that you are spending a lot more money than the other passengers in the back. The US airline did have a couple of younger beauties but I guess they didn't have enough seniority to work up front. The American FA's, all past their expiry date, along with a nice guy who seemed to be in early stages of dementia and finally just disappeared, seemed to be trying to make an effort but there was no doubt that they had other places they'd rather be and other things they'd rather be doing. The worst part is that they try to have meaningful conversations about subjects they have no fucking clue about. They should just do their job and shut up. The Asian FA's know when to speak and when to shut up and believe me, they look great doing it. Whoever designed the uniforms on Singapore Air was a genius. That alone makes me want to fly them whenever possible.

I will admit the best bottle of wine I found on all the flights was on the U.S. carrier. But that's not enough to make up for iffy service, and generally uncomfortable (compared to the Asian Airlines) seating/beds. Meals on all were quite good with one exception of lunch on Cathay but surprisingly, Asiana served a medium rare steak that rivaled the best I've ever eaten and then offered me seconds which I gladly accepted.

It's nice to see that some parts of the globe still know how to give real first class service, but US airlines are no longer in the game. They should charge a lot less for their international first class seats because they can no longer compete. In future, I won't be flying any US airlines internationally.

Ehrin-you're fired!

About 2 hours after I posted for the first time in almost a year, my attorney representing me in my lawsuit emailed me to say I have to remove my post because if someone connects the dots about my accident that my lawsuit could be in jeopardy. WTF? This prick has an RSS feed into my blog? Why? Well Ehrin, I always figured you were a senseless low life prick but now I know you are. So hopefully you'll get this in your feed tonight before you get into bed with that fat cow of an excuse for a woman who is your wife and discover that you're fired. You've got a 20 G retainer from me and you can keep it although other than file a few papers you did squat to earn it. Now fuck off and read about my settlement in your law journals in a few months to realize how much of a fee you squandered by being an asshole.

Shakespeare had it right in Henry VI and if you don't know what I mean, you're too fucking dumb to be reading this.

Holy coma batman

The title of this blog was made tongue-in-cheek but there is no question that I am absolutely lucky to be alive after the last few months. I was driving down the Coast Highway last August when some asshole decided that to pass a truck but was too drunk to realize I was coming the opposite way in the lane he was using. To make a long story short, he's dead, I'm still alive and nowithstanding a few weeks in a coma and a few months of physical therapy, I'm probably in the best shape of my last 30 years on this sick but glad I'm still here planet. Of couse I'll never admit that to the tight ass attorney representing the idiot's estate that I and my insurance company are suing for just slightly less than Liechtenstein's GDP. After all, I did lose a few months of my life and a slightly used Bimmer 650, and other than a few blow jobs by some sympathetic ladies, I didn't have any tail for 6 months. Fortunately, I have been able to rectify that in the last few weeks.

I actually thought that the whole experience had made me change my roguish ways, but I realized recently that I'm still the same old philanderer although with 20 less pounds which actually seems to make me even more attractive to younger ladies-if that were possible.

I wasn't going to post this blog anymore but incredibly, I get almost 200 hits a day on it and I haven't posted for almost a year. Maybe I'll even turn the comments on at some point but I'm still rather fragile so I wouldn't want to be bitch slapped by you hypocrites who think my lifestyle is shameful. To you folks, all I got to say is "Move on-I don't give a flying fuck what you think about me."

In the meantime, I'm revving back up ready to take on all those nubile young bodies who like older men who don't give a rat's ass if they are after our money. I admit I am out of practise so it may take a while to get back into the full swing, but for now, I'm banging a newly separated 36 year old with huge tits, a a small waist, a tight ass and a reasonable face. Yeah, she's at the upper end of her expiry date, but even Roger Clemens had to spend a few weeks in the minors before he went back to the bigs.
