Lost in Translation
Well, we didn’t quite make it off the ground. The catering truck apparently ran into the plane that we were supposed to fly in and they spent 3 hours trying to fix it. By the time they got the plane in working order – the flight promptly announced that they needed to de-board the plane because if they flew to Japan it would take too many hours and according to the union they couldn’t do that.
After de-boarding us and our luggage and about 5 hours we finally got new flights and a hotel. And what a hotel it was – A 3 Star beauty called the Marriott – maybe you have heard of it. Nice beds, warm showers and to top it all off they gave us $10 vouchers for dinner! What a wonderful treat and fantastic way to end the day. The best news of the day is that Eoin became a bit more famous on Reddit by posting an incredibly insightful and hilarious Meme. Were hoping for a better day tomorrow.
This is not Eoin in Japan. This is Eoin in a hotel – still in Los Angeles. He is passing the time becoming a Reddit Karma Hero and posting some fabulous stuff.
We flashed these to the Maitre D with the instructions to keep the plates of food coming until we had burned through these little suckers.
Oh look at that. It’s my suitcase, sitting in a hotel in Los Angeles when it should be on a plane to Tokyo, Good grief United Airlines, what will you think of next?
