Last night’s flight wound up delayed by about 4 hours, which wasn’t really too horrible. I finished a crossword puzzle, several sudokus, and watched The Princess Bride, which was something I hadn’t planned. I’d figured since it was a transatlantic flight, I’d be able to squeeze in a couple of films I’d never seen before, taking advantage of the opportunity, but films have become like TV shows in that there are dozens of them all the same which I don’t feel I need to bother seeing as they will neither educate, inspire or even greatly amuse me. And usually I don’t like rewatching films, because I know how it ends so what’s the point, but I hadn’t seen TPB for many years, and it was very worth watching again, even though Inigo Montoya’s name is still, and will always be, Inigo Montoya.
Then they served dinner shortly after takeoff, which kind of surprised me as it was already 2 a.m. but it was a good dinner and after that I did fall asleep, despite the turbulence.
Nonetheless, I am very tired now and plan to get to bed shortly. I have made a list with my goals for the rest of the summer, now that I’m back from all that vacationing, all the way from losing weight to developing materials for the next school year, and publishing at least one more edition of poetry along the way.
I’ll get started on that tomorrow.
