OK - in 2 days (and 11 hours) I will be departing Sydney for a 13.5 hour flight to Los Angeles, at 10:35am on Thursday the 15th March
Movie choices (Video On Demand) on board are:
1 Devil wears prada 1:50
2 casino royale 2:24
3 The Queen 1:37
4 notes on a scandal 1:32
5 little miss sunshine 1:43
6 Borat 1:27
7 The Prestige 2:10
8 black dhalia 2:01
9 happy feet 1:48
10 man of the year 1:54
11 blood diamond 2:18
12 stranger than fiction 1:52
13 dreamgirls 2:00
14 babel 2:12
A total of 26 hours of movies for a 13 hour flight.. I've sorted them into priority for my taste. I don't think I'll be bored.
Oh, and they serve Mr & Mrs T Bloody Mary Mix on board, so I'll KNOW I'm on the way to the USA. That stuff is ambrosia !!
Once we get there (at 6am the same Thursday... See we DO time-travel here), we have early (7am) check-in into the Penny Sleeper Inn (Quality Inn & Suites) and we don't have to check out the following day until Midday.
We are thinking of doing a LA By Night type tour, because we can't activate our Disneyland passes yet or they'll be wasted.
Or: We'll stand at the front gates and look through the bars like little lost koala bear waifs.
Or: we might also just have dinner at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, (or Rainforest cafe), build a bear, then catch a movie.
Or: we might just sit at the Uva bar all night.
Who knows, but if anyone's in the vicinity on the evening of the 15th and wants some aussie company and maybe a Vegemite Daquiri or two, look us up.
We have NO cellphone this trip but our hotel phone at the Quality Inn is: (714) 991-8100
We'll try to get internet up and running at this stage. Does anyone know of any good offers (free internet access through AOL or similar) we'd need about 7 weeks of it.
Anyhow hope to see you all on your own turf soon !
Rob. (and Lashstoat)
