So next Monday is my birthday.

17:10 : Leaking
Currently at [personal profile] jhaelan's house in Singapore abusing his bandwidth. Flying on to Kuala Lumpar tomorrow morning. I have changed my plans slightly and will now skip Bangkok after Ho Chi Minh City because of the flooding and what follows after the cut.

cut for medical ick and instruments aka minor surgeryCollapse )

After the medical stuff I went and watched some of the singapore sevens at the singapore cricket club. Then went for chilli crab with [personal profile] jhaelan


photo of me devouring crabCollapse )

We then went toa MindCafe where [personal profile] jhaelan beat me twice at scrabble even though in one game I had a 7 letter word. I blame the drugs :)

03:01 : I escaped australia just in time
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-15504838

My flight was at 05:50 GMT :) Possibly the last Qantas flight to leave Sydney.

So we made it Singapore which was fine for me since thats where I wanted to be.

Other people on the plane were going on to frankfurt or indeed connecting to elsewhere. must suck for them.
I dont need a Qantas flight until Nov 30th so I might be okay and from Hong Kong there are probably several options back to london.

Admittedly my stop in Bangkok might be at risk for other reasons anyway.

11:49 : technology fail :(
So I cracked the screen the on replacement n900 the other day so cant keep my flickr stream up to date as i was. I have bought a new camera so the pictures when i upload them might actually be better now. Although given how annoying the power supply and battery are on this laptop I dont know if i can be bothered. I may have sorted out one of my spare phones to do uploads but its a lot more annoying as well.


For the same reason im not updating twitter as much at the moment but I sorted that out this morning by setting up my spare phones in the right combination. So i might be posing more random crap there soon. mostly about beer i suspect.

If anything the lack of connectivity is preparing me for when I start the last leg on my tour in south east asia where i wont be able to justify getting pay as you go sims with data. Since i wont be anywhere long enough.

09:59 : And were Off! - Sabbatical day 9.
After about 5 hours sleep I get up to get ready for my cab to heathrow at 07:45. The cab turns up promptly and I make it to heathrow with plenty of time to spare. So had breakfast at Plane Food which fine if not a little pricey. Spent some money in the Nokia store to get a few bits and bobs.

On the plane I ended up having two seats to myself which is always good. I should really remember to ask for vegan meals in future given my probable lactose intolerance. Although I suspect BA do that as an option anyway.

I watched most of 3 films. Thor was enjoyable. Fast Five was enjoyably ludicrous. Sucker punch was interesting with some great fight scenes although im not that upset I missed the ending due to us landing.

To get to my hotel I decided to take a bus to South Station. The bus was confused though at one point it converted to overhead electrics instead of a normal engine and then it went in its own tunnel like it wanted to be tube. There were no longer bus stops but stations.

Once I got to South Station I got confused and it was raining so I got a cab to my hostel.


My hostel is fine if not a little basic. There is free wifi though.

After attempting a nap I decieded to go on a flaneur and see where I ended up.

I ended up at Fenway Park where I queued for game day tickets for about 2 hours and got in.

So I saw the Red Sox beat the Yankees at Fenway Park from a pretty good seat although it did go to extra an inning so by the time I had walked back to my hostel I had been up for 24 hours. Thankfully caffiene now has an effect on me so the Dr Pepper and Coke I had drunk during the day kept me awake.

09:56 : Sabbatical day 8
Day 8 of my sabbatical was mostly spent buying stuff to pack and then packing.

Once that was done I set up our network so things would work while I was away.
