En route – Trashy in China, Part 1

I’m writing this while happily ensconced in my pod, sipping a Heinekin and munching on cashews out of a little porcelain bowl. According to the map, we just passed over Sudbury and are heading toward the Pole. Figger that we’ll run out of daylight at some point in the not-too-distant future.  I do hope that it will be clear at some point so to see what might be 30,000 below.

All is uneventful thus far. I’m pretty excited about all of this. Who’d-a-thunk that this ex-Parry Sound boy would ever be travelling across the planet to China? Well, I did, I guess. I have always thought that I would get a chance at some point in my life to see a good part of the world. And now it’s happening.

As far as this flight is concerned, my travelling companions are a pretty good bunch with whom will be a pleasure to share this trip. But if that little 8 year old brat one pod over doesn’t chill a bit, a few of us are gonna see what a bratty 8 year old looks like when tossed from a 777!

  1. Hehe.

    That’s just the people I’d ban.

    There’s another whole class I’d allow on the plane, but only on the outside.

    I see the Squid-dude is back to being his cantankerous self!

  3. I used to travel a lot on business, and I have to say, I developed a total loathing for assholes who bring their undisciplined, self-absorbed brats on planes, especially in first/business class. I’ve often felt that the passengers should be able to vote them off the plane, either by landing or at altitude. I have a whole list of stuff I think shouldn’t be brought into the passenger compartment of an aircraft:

    – babies
    – children that can’t be controlled
    – alcohol (yes, that may seem strange, but there’s not much worse than drunken idiots on a plane)
    – luggage that’s bigger than a laptop bag (if it were up to me, I’d enforce carry-on rules with a micrometer)
    – people wearing perfume would be banned.
