Leaving, on a jet plane, as soon as the bugger actually arrives...

Julie met me after work and we walked together up to Waverly, where we caught the airport bus together. She's not coming down to London with me this weekend (she's off to her own family for a few days), but we now have a tradition of meeting each other at the airport, or seeing each other off. It gives us a bit of time in a liminal space, where there's no distractions, and nothing to do but chat to each other. It's a welcome gap where there's no tv, internet or PhD to distract either of us.

Anyway, we got to the airport in plenty of time, I had a pasty and she had a cup of tea, and then it was time for me to go through security so that I was through in plenty of time for my plane.

I was past security by less than 10 seconds when an announcement came over the tannoy that my plane was delayed by half an hour.

*sigh*

So I downloaded Joikuspot for the phone, which turns it into a WiFi hotspot, and got myself online, so I can keep myself amused. Sadly, I'll need the phone at the other end, so I can't do this for long before the battery dies.

Anyway, off to London for Saturday, and then Southampton Sunday->Tuesday. No idea if there's internet down there, so play nice while I'm away.
