“If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?” – Edward Norton (Fight Club)
Well the time has finally come! I am currently sitting in the hotel room about to get going to the airport. Last night I drove to Sydney which was pretty painful, I guess I better get used to sitting in a cramped compartment for a lengthy amount of time though! I am feeling okay about the SYD to AKL leg of the flight because we get a good 2 hour leg stretch after it. The 15 hour from AKL to LAX is going to be the shit part.
Last night we stayed at the Adina apartments in mascot about 5 mins from the airport. The room was nice but the temperature all night was wayyy too hot. Was struggling to sleep heavily. The sleep was admittedly pretty shit. This was not helped by Lord of the Rings – Fellowship of the Ring being on tv, of course I had to watch it! Such a great film. We ate dinner at a place called Tavolino pizza last night. It was pretty good. Felt nice to eat fat food again after being off our diet! I always order Margherita pizza, I’m not huge on pizza other than Margherita which is always a safe delicious bet. Though, Aimee’s sister Jessica opted for the create your own pizza option in which she selected Prawns, Chilli, Ham and Salami. The waitress took the order and came back and said that she got in shit for accepting that order because it was a shit order and it could result in a bad review of the place. Fuck them though, why offer that option if they are going to criticise it? Dickheads. Though, admittedly, it is a pretty shit order hahahahahah.
My plan for today’s flight is to pop the valium, chuck on my noise cancelling headphones and smash out like 10 movies. I am pretty keen to see the new pirates of the Caribbean movie so if they have the old ones on there, I might do a marathon! Sleep would be preferred but I am not sure if I will get any as I have never been able to sleep on flights.
Anyway, I’ll keep this brief and no pictures this time! The rest of my blog posts will have pictures though! I will see you on the other side!
