All packed.

Flight leaves tomorrow morning.

Enjoy my finals hours of posting in English while you can. Mwahahhah.

18 (real) hours of in-air time and layovers. Supplies to fight boredom:
  • 2 laptops; 3 batteries
  • mp3 player; 10 AAs
  • 2 novels
  • 21 page printout of some code i want to study (no batteries required!)
  • Deutsches Wörterbuch
Maybe from Denver to Frankfurt I'll sit next to somebody cool that's chatty and speaks English as poor as my German. Heh.

Just took a 1.5 hour nap. Now what? Pretty bored. Dina gets off work in an hour... maybe I'll go chill with her.

maybe it depends on the airline. my American Airlines flight to japan had 'em..

usually they at least have those cigarette adapter things, they're either tucked under the seat or in the bottom of the arm rests, near the front.

:( say it isn't so....

Are you really going to be posting from now on exclusively in German? Guess I am going to have to buy a German/English dictionary and slog it out!

Viel gluck! Oh, I realized something earlier ... we share something in common: I left for Germany on April 1, 1987 :)

Neat-0.

Anyway, I wish you a safe flight - take care :)

You probably already know this... but...

Get to the airport VERY early... especially if you are taking all of that computer stuff on the plane. I was at the airport last week and waited quite come time behind folks with laptops, cellphones, and misc... going through the security checks.

Turn the device on, prove it works, etc... each and every person. *sigh*. Gotta do it... but it easily triples the time to get to the plane.

I see you in a bit then. Have a safe trip and good luck on sitting next to a halfway acceptable person on the plane :)

Das geht jetzt aber wirklich unter die Gürtellinie! Außerdem möchte ich betonen, dass ich NICHT sächsele. Zu 90% spreche ich hochdeutsch. Flachlandindianer, MANN SIND DIE NERVIG!

I'm seriously considering NOT inviting you for a beer next weekend if you keep making fun of the place I live. ;P Besides, what YOU guys speak up there is equally annoying.

No I can't. I'm scared of them. One of them bit me last night when I was looking for the butter in the fridge.

I'll train my Plattdeutsch and annoy them to death.

I should just force my flatmate to remove them. He wanted to eat them half a year ago after all.


Practice on your Platt though, I'm giggling already.
