Day 87

[reading: J.K.Rowling, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"]

So, twelve hours on a plane to Bangkok today. I don't actually mind long haul flights—it gives me a chance to concentrate on reading a book from cover to cover, and to watch the odd silly movie.

What did get annoying was that it seemed to be my day to attract space invaders. First, the guy who came and sat next to me at the airport kept on overflowing his chair into mine (until I growled at him), and then something similar started happening with the guy next to me on the plane. I didn't fancy the prospect of fighting off his elbows for twelve hours, so I 'accidentally' left a magazine wedged at the side of my seat, which effectively acted as an mini wall to keep him out. Petty, I know, but much more comfortable.
