So, we all know air travel isn't what it used to be-- I even remember my parents making us "dress up" for a flight! No more. People were wearin' straight up jammies! I have to say Quantas is the best airline I've flown since the old days of British Airways. It was a treat. We even got a free drink with dinner--FOUR snacks during the 17 hour flight and breakfast! It was a shock to the system.
That said, I started for the US at noon on August 26th...traveled a total of 30 hours and it was STILL August 26th when we landed in Toronto. (if I've said this before I'm sorry--my brain is still mush). I've had jet lag before--usually when I go to England but this is something else all together!
I'm starting work up again next week...summer vacation is OVER and it's partly why I'm just not 'all here". Nine new therapy kids and scheduling can be a nightmare. Yesterday I actually went to the office for a half day and then came home and slept. Oh boyy...and I had NO time for GH repeats, that's for darn sure. Why ABC would do this---and choose to do it all in a row with Monday being Labor Day is beyond me. If You HAVE to show repeats because of some scheduling thing, spread them out. put one on extra around the holidays or something. Four days of repeats isn't doing the show any favors. If you're not online, you have no idea what's going on-- I've had people text and ask if the show was still going!
My Sunday Surgery is going to be based on what I've seen that I've managed to watch since I'v been back. Could be Wacky!!
Tillie is happy we are home and I'm happy to see her too. My new schedule looks like long Monday and Wed--and shorter Tues/Thurs/Fridays. Not sure if this is good or bad for my GH viewing. I'll be home just in time for it to start 2 days and I'll have to take Tillie out first. May be on a little delay.
OK! That's why I didn't put a post up yesterday. I prob wouldn't get one up today other than this so, fire away!
Our airline food on Quantas going over to Australia:
Baked Chicken and mushroom rice (so good) Cocktail of choice (even scotch!)
dessert was raspberry tart.
At this point in the flight all the lights went out and people slept..you couldn't even hear a peep from any kids or snoring or anything! The stewards came around with little lights on their vests to see if you were awake...if you were you got:
Snack one: Ice cream bars (YES!!)
Snack Two: Warm chocolate chip cookies
Snack Three: Cheese and Crackers or Fruit
Snack Four: BAKED MAC AND CHEESE.---which. was. AMAAAAAAAZING (Oprah voice)
Now, of the above I only got the mac and cheese. I did get an ice cream bar on the way back to the USA and it was delicious.
The lights came on slowly and the breakfast got rolled out:
Eggs, sausage, bacon, warm muffin
or the MOST GIANT glorious fresh fruit plate you've ever seen. (and a muffin)
Holy Toledo!! ;) So good. So needed after our cramped "AIRBUS" ride to LA that jammed us in for five hours and you got one little soda or water. Thanks, AMERICAN AIRLINES--I'm looking at you. Wub Hub, who's 5' 9" had to switch seats with me from the middle because he was so smooshed up!
Anyway..I am writing this at 1:48 am because....JET LAG, BABY!! I did sleep like the dead for 2 hours then woke up. PING!!
