March 2009 Archives

landing back in the US

| Permanent Link

I had a quick trip to the UK to meet with Duncan. My return trip was my first international trip in about five months. I realized, as I was leaving the customs area: I couldn't see George Walker Bush's picture anywhere, grinning at me, to welcome me back to America.

I paced back and forth along the back wall of the LAX customs area. I couldn't see any picture of Obama. I asked a security guard, "Don't you have the President's picture on the wall?"

He gestured at the wall further down - there it was. Barack Hussein Obama's picture smiling at me, to welcome me back to America.

I became excited. "That's Barack Obama! On the Wall!" At first the guard didn't seem sure if I was allowed to walk along the back wall of customs. The he relaxed, "Yes."

I smiled at the wall for a moment, and resisted the urge to wait for my iPhone to boot up to take a picture.

Hi, I'm Justin Hall and this is my personal web site, something I've been poking at since 1994. The content on the front page is relatively recent; if you search through the archives, you'll find old pieces of Justin. Recently I was CEO of an online games company GameLayers - now I'm a Producer working on mobile games with ngmoco! I'm an avid video gamer, primarily on the Xbox 360. Some kind folks have indexed my doings on Wikipedia. You can email me!
