In the hotel foyer, the pianist plays “Can’t Smile Without You”. It’s that kind of hotel.

@ssharwood I’ll have plenty of time for the street food. And I’ll run amok, trust me. Too knackered to move now.

@ssharwood I’m staying at the Conrad Centennial. It seems to be right in the middle of the action. For some value of “action”.

@R_Chirgwin @ssharwood Alas I’m not particularly good at “smooth clothes”. Shopping Mall Container Terminal Island will just have to cope.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@oberonsghost Oh yeah. Shirts with collars. I have one of those. I brought my shirt for doing television with.

Tue plan, remainder: Deal with email; freshen up; cocktails and the like with my fellow media people in the Executive Lounge (gawd).

@JonoH @john_larkin Thanks for the tips. I’ll see how my energy levels go by the weekend. Um here until Sunday.

via Plume for Android in reply to JonoH

@markatextor Thanks for the heads up, but I know to be polite in any new country before I’ve understood the rules. I’m a good boy.

Checked in. “Executive Floor Privileges.” This will end well.

That’s all I’m saying until I get some non-sodomising bandwidth.

Touchdown Singapore.

Doors closed. Transmitters off. See you in Singapore.

Boarding. Sorry I’ve been quiet, been gossiping with fellow media people.

via Plume for Android

So what’s the algorithm for airline checkin staff handing prole passengers an express lane pass?

via Plume for Android

Checked in. SQ212 is a quiet flight today. Window seat. Express lane through customs etc.

@ozdj @izevaka Your immediate family will live past the end of the week, but only because I’m about to leave the country.

Sorry, nine people. Young children keep popping out of various orifices.

A family of seven appears to have emptied their entire house into an endless series of suitcases and arrived without their paperwork.

At the Singapore Airlines checkin desk. The queue is short but the passengers are stupid.

Tue plan, draft: Early breakfast (done); train to Sydney airport; 0905 AEDT SQ212 SYD-SIN, arriving 1710 AEDT / 1410 SGT; remainder TBA.

@MrMikeStuchbery If you’re not careful I’ll combine with in some cyanide-laced fantasy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Mike__Stuchbery

The non-bonus part is that I’ll end up at the airport bored and tired and grumpy. So that’s going to annoying for everyone.

via Janetter for Mac

So here we are. It has struck 0500. This is the time I’d intended to wake, and I’ve already had a meal and a coffee. That part is a bonus.

via Janetter for Mac

@JonoH Oh dear. :) Thanks. And now that I think about it, there are indeed some cool possibilities for next year.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Yeah, I think. More and better paid gigs, more profile, slow and steady improvement in it all. A few interesting leads for 2013.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Why thank you, Sir. I’ll certainly let you know. Your gig continues in Qatar next year?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@JonoH “Chance” is a good word. :) Over the next few weeks I’m seeing what’s possible for 2013. I’d certainly like it or something similar.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@JonoH I got four hours sleep, maybe nearly 4.5, so there’s no “still” about it. But it’s not that unusual for me to be up… early.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

It’s just gone 0330 AEDT and my alarm was set for 0500 anyway. I might as well be awake. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

That seems a sensible plan.
