It’s quite sweet that EVA Air puts tiny stars in the ceiling of the plane to give you some kind of special ambience as you fly through the air.
I left Singapore just after 3pm today, flew to Taipei and spent three hours in a premium lounge that was decorated like a strip club. Or how I imagine a strip club would look. Allegedly.
There, while businessmen snored and a procession of hotdogs rolled under the grill, I played online Blood Bowl and tried to stay awake, before heading to my second plane. Sadly, neither plane was in the fabled Hello Kitty livery, but I had a enormous electric business class seat, and got to sleep for 6 of the 10 hours that it took to get to Seattle.
The rest of the time I debated watching Hereditary (I didn’t, because you never want to shit your pants with fear while on a plane, or anywhere else, for that matter) and ate dinner and breakfast at unnatural intervals. The seat was comfortable and the staff attentive, but it was a strange time of day to land. Usually I get into Seattle first thing in the morning and then have to force myself to stay awake. Tonight, I arrived in the middle of the evening after lots of sleep, and have to force myself back to bed. Will this work? Won’t it work? We’re about to find out…
