Some baggage lost in transit
I'm too old for this
Three hundred humans
In a flimsy metal tube
I'm glad it's so safe.....
Things you think about after travelling almost 30 hours:
- How bizarre that we think it totally normal to be hurtling through the air along with 300 others at 35,000 feet and 800 km/h in a metal tube...
- "In the unlikely event of a landing over water", taking the brace position and knowing that your life vest is under your seat is really no help since falling into water from 30,000 feet will pretty much be like slamming into a brick wall at 800km/hr. Why not actually be honest about it?
- Economy passengers should NOT have to walk past the executive class passengers in their little pods with seats that lie down flat. Unless of course I got a standby seat in executive. Then I just don't care*. I'll even toast those in the cattle car with my glass of champagne. Because otherwise, having to see how the other half lives when you're embarking on a 15 hour flight is just cruel and unusual punishment.
- Whoever said "familiarity breeds contempt" probably spent hours cooped up with other people on a long long flight.
- Turning right into the far lane freaks me right the hell out, seeing that logically it should get me killed by oncoming traffic. There is something inherently wrong about right side driving. So very very wrong.
- Lucky we didn't have to rent a car on arrival
- Seeing parrots fly around an roost in the tree right in front of you is really strange.
- Plastic bills are really cool.
- Vegemite is not. I still haven't found a reason for its existence, despite Mr. Jazz's love of the stuff.
How cool is it that C has internet at home? I'll be talking to y'all!
PS: they found our luggage, we'll have it tonight, YAY!
*Of course I care. If you made Executive, do you really want to have to look into the eyes of the rabble?
