West to east jetlag is the worst ever, even if I did sleep on the plane.  The red eye flight was less than half full and I had a full four seats to myself, across which I stretched out and listened to Stephen Briggs read Monstrous Regiment* in between naps. Now, however, my pelvis is killing me and I need to take a bath.

My sense of entitlement is still rankled by US Airways charging for their headsets, and I intend to not fly with them again, but I imagine I'll change my mind when I book my flights for Rocker Bing's wedding, and again choose to sacrifice 8 hours of comfort  for the sake of a hundred or so.

Holiday-wise, now that's what I'm talking about. I am relaxed, refreshed, confident, loved, and ready to face the world again: I have motivation. I have a reason to do what I'm doing, and I have a destination in mind for my life. I'm not a fan of saying goodbye, but the knowledge that every time I do, there are fewer to be said in the future: that's OK.

It was great to see you. Wish I'd gotten to see more of you while you were here!! Next time.

*cough* so not a USian carrier then? I know budget is budget, but the lack of responsiveness on my US leg journey when I was over there (US Airways also IIRC) really got to me.

@IB: I think I succumbed and bought the headphones, and theoretically they're usable for future journeys, so it's a trade off, they're cheaper because amongst other things the food options are crap and you have to pay for any extras at all. Which is sucky, but at least it's makes-sense sucky.

Still, you got home safe, which is good.

The movie choice on the way there was awful, and I slept on the way back, but I don't think I saw anything really worth £3 either.

Yeah, in future I might be sticking to Virgin or BA. THEY give me free booze, even if they don't always hit the runway.
