getting closer

Posted in: General

So, now it’s one week to go.
This time next Thursday I’ll be on that plane!
Munching on a small bag of peanuts.
And sipping a minute orange juice.
Wondering just how bad the movies will be!
It’s hard, I know.

    Careful you don’t spill that OJ while trying to peel back the foil!

    Ah, aeroplane drinks. Beware this hazard:

    And as the plane jetted off heading back towards Asia, and ultimately, Australia, I sipped on a glass of water, and as the others slept, put my glass down, and slowly drifted off too.

    I woke several hours later with damp jeans. I thought for a few seconds I’d embarrassed myself, but it was just the glass – it had toppled over, and water was soaking into my lap.

    Poignant advice there from Daniel, Marita!
    How many sleeps now? It is only one sleep ’til my new job!

    To add to the cautionary tales – a can of soft drink balanced precariously on top of a newspaper will always end up in your lap mere minutes after taking off on an 8 hour flight. Thank god for Tokyo airports with bathrooms and laundries.
