    Welcome to the States, Warren. Hope you haven't been bitten yet.

    Have fun. Are you really going to be able to avoid shaking hands with people? I mean, the guy extends his hand to you, that big hopeful "I've been waiting my whole life for this" kinda grin... what are you gonna tell him?

    Enjoy the smell!

    What is your brand of smoke, anyway? I'm sure this has been covered many, many times here on White Chapel, but I'm new here.

    And lazy.

    Oh, so lazy.

    Lets hope you don't crash like so many other things have due to mission control.

    I hope you will be able to hold a cigarette and open those cans of Red Bull after all the signing and hand shaking :)

    Warren, a question: You say you travel without luggage, that is why you get out of the airport so quickly. Do you carry a change of clothes in your hand luggage? Or are you just washing your pants in the sink like Jimmy Savile does? Oh, that brings weird images to mind :) Speaking of which, why do I still remember who Jimmy Savile is? Or that fact he does that? I haven't lived in the UK for 4 years, haha!

    Welcome! Your room comes with complimentary water-boarding, does it not?

    Chicago is where my family comes out of, and I still have a large bit there- unfortunate that I am in NEW YORK... but really; sarcasm is the way to soothe the savage geeks.

    may i suggest adopting the traditional "gangsta" greeting of a "pound" or (as my old friend sammy sez) "punch it in". this involves tapping your closed fist to the closed fist of your fan for those who live beneath a large boulder. i understand the fear of seeing someone raise their fist to you may make you weary of this greeting technique but it may save your hand some repetitive stress injury. you could also perhaps take a trip to Mr. Moore's jeweler/armorer to prevent an overzealous fan from delivering a right cross to yer knuckles. you could also make up yer own non-squeezing hand gesture. perhaps you and the fan both extend the middle finger to eachother and then do a inverted pound?
    i don't know... just a suggestion.
    glad to hear your nicotine and caffeine needs have been provided for.
    enjoy the U.S.of A.!
    hope to see you in the great white north sometime.

    @Lazlo - I believe that is what Howie (the douche) Mandel does. He doesn't like to touch other people's hands. Are you in Canada mate? We don't get many people coming up this way do we? There is that con in Toronto at least, but I am on the west coast, and nothing comes this way. I'm in Victoria though, so I might head across the water to Seattle for Emerald city next year.
