35 hour Christmas [Dec. 26th, 2007|12:21 am]

I woke this Christmas morning in a Moscow hotel, had breakfast, got in a cab, and spent 24 hours traveling west, gaining 11 hours, leaving me 3 hours of remaining Christmas in the deserted ghost town of San Francisco. I guess that means I had a 35 hour Christmas.

The planes were, to my disappointment, not empty. That would've been sadderfunnier (word?). But TSA agents with Santa hats was sadfunny enough ("Look, we're trying to be likable!").

I look forward to tomorrow... a day of nothingness. Will be great. (And will be even better if my lost suitcase arrives...)

Welcome to the real world - I had 35-hour days four times this year by traveling from Moscow to Seatte ;-) I don't know why did you expect planes to be empty. I believe most people who going from Russia to US are Russians and they're not celebrating 'your' xmas, so there is no reason for plane to be empty ;-)

lol, same exact story for me: flew back yesterday (from Chicago), surprised/disappointed how busy the flights were, one of my bags didn't show up.
