Home again

So I'm back in Melbourne once again, having survived the fourteen and a half hour flight without too many difficulties, thanks in large part to Sweeney who came and rescued me from a fate worse than death - six hours in Los Angeles International Airport with nothing to do.


Instead, I got to go to In n Out Burger, and Santa Monica, and it was made of win because I GOT TO HANG OUT WITH SWEENEY OMG *flail*.

Exciting things I have done since getting home from the airport five hours ago:
- Put the entire contents of my suitcase through the washing machine. CLEAN CLOTHES, YAY.
- Showered.
- Fangirl flailed about the fact that the water doesn't taste like chlorine.
- Brushed my teeth for the first time in 24 hours. It was VERY exciting.
- Discovered that I took over 1700 photos in the course of my four weeks overseas, and that I now have to go through them all and delete all the blurry ones, and decide which of the duplicates to keep.
- Actually unpacked my suitcase. I'm pretty sure this is a first for me! Usually it sits on my floor with about three things in it for a month afterwards.
- Ate food that wasn't brought to me covered in foil and on a tray.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand now it's 4pm and I'm rapidly heading towards Struggle Street. Thanks a lot, jetlag. Looks like it's time to break out my tried and true jetlag beating technique - drink as much caffeine as is required to keep you awake until 9pm, then sleep for 12 hours.

Wish me luck...

  1. Girl after my own heart. One can not let jetlag beat you. The second you start falling asleep at 4:30 is when jet lag wins.

    1. Exactly. I'll never understand people who get home from overseas in the middle of the day and decide that a nap is a good idea!

  2. Welcome back home and good luck with your plan to stay awake! I've yet to experience any travel that involved jetlag, but my favourite things to do after long trips are: 1. sleep in my own bed, and, 2. have a shower with proper water pressure and my choice of six different body washes. Bliss!

    I'm looking forward to seeing some of those 1,700 photos on your blog soon. :)

    1. Sleeping in your own bed after being away for several weeks is pretty much the greatest thing ever.

  3. Yay, home! (And yay for you that your home is not currently in the middle of winter. I kinda wish I was in Australia right now.)

    1. You probably don't. It's a millionty degrees. Some kind of happy medium between freezing and roasting would be nice!

    2. That's true, I'm really not a heat person. (And omg, a millionty degrees Celsius?! I don't even want to know what that would be in Fahrenheit!)

  4. I lol'd at the 10th circle picture. I've never been to LAX but this gives me an idea of how awesome it must me haha. Welcome back to Melbourne!

    1. LAX is quite possibly the most horrific airport on earth. There's literally nothing to do there, and once you clear security there are almost no shops. So you can't even pass the many many hours perusing the duty free options! And thank you :)

  5. "10th circle: LAX" = bwahahah!

    GOLD.

    Welcome back, K! Good to hear you're safe and sound on Aussie soil, heh.

    Wait, hold up: the water tastes like chlorine in the States? ZUH?!

    In n Out Burger, I've heard it's good...but apparently Shake Shack is THE SHIZ, so please tell me you also tried that. ;-)

    All the best with kicking jet lag's sorry ass!

    1. SO MUCH. I don't know why I keep flying through there rather than through San Francisco...
