Day 1 of an AFK WoW addict
1630, 30 Mar (Sydney Local time): I think my plane is delayed. And this airport wi-fi is a bit buggy. OK so I did do some checking of my achievements and things, but not much.
2145, 30 Mar (Singapore Local time): I wondered how I would fare with no internet, and after stepping of at Singapore for refuelling, I can say that I did ok. Fortunately I had my book to read. And though the airport there says free internet, I can’t seem to get onto any of the networks. Not that I was going to log onto WoW of course… no realy, I wasn’t. Really. I am sleepy though. Trying to stay awake so I can switch my body clock over to UK time. I guess if I stay up for another 6 hours, I’ll be able to switch it over to UK time. I had a window seat. The gentleman sitting next to me had a body odour scale of 8 (0 is pleasant, 5 is no smell, 10 is highly malodorous) but at least he was a very polite and helpful, helping me with my trays or letting me know if there were drinks and food coming because I had my headset on. I did put Twilight So what would I have done had I been able to get online now. I would be looking to see what the next world event is bringing. I’m wondering if I’m missing out on any dailies because I’m not doing them. I don’t even know when it starts!
0530, 31 Mar (London Local time): There’s one thing I have to say about long plane trips. I managed to catch up on all those OTHER things that I don’t do normally. Like read. I should have brought Storm of Swords in my luggage to read on the way home, because I finished reading Clash of Kings on that longass plane trip! And also watched The Descendants, which I probably wouldn’t have watched normally, and I wanted to see why George Clooney won an academy award for his appearance. And also managed to watch Happy Feet 2 (which I think started off very average, but got more enjoyable towards the end – someone needs to explain why Mumble is still in his adolescent plumage from the previous movie and also has a kid of his own!) There was some sidekick silliness in the form of 2 Krill named Bill and Will. Some of their jokes made me laugh (“One in a Krillion!”) Can’t believe it’s been 24 hours since I got on the plane. And Heathrow has no free wi-fi. Oh well, no posting of anything till I get back to my sister’s house I suppose. I did wear my Druid hoodie to keep warm in this chilly London spring weather, but I don’t know what the nerd factor is like here in the UK. Probably not as nerdy as in Australia.
