in transit

Melbourne…
Went to the counter to check in, and discovered my tickets hadn’t been paid for. Convenient. After an hour and a half of wrangling, we got them paid for, and I got on the plane.

Sydney…
Having found my Ipod managed to unlock itself and wear out the batteries somewhat, I’ve bought a battery pack in duty free. Tried connecting to the wireless network here, but of course I would have to pay, so I don’t think I’ll play that game. The United Airlines people are going frantic calling for a whole heap of passengers who haven’t turned up to board the flight to San Francisco. There’s been a constant stream of final boarding call announcements, followed by dire warnings that the aircraft will leave without them, and their bags are being unloaded as we speak. Then a call listing all of the passengers who still hadn’t turned up, repeated every minute with the number of names called dropping every time.

LA…
Get through passport control, clear customs, then jump on the plane.

Chicago…
Glowing yellow grids next to a dark lake. Hungry, and no wireless. Damnit. I think I’ll go find food.

Washington…
Tired now. Arrived.
