Bah Humbug

By the time you read this, we’ll be seeing in the New Year on a plane flying from Newark to Glasgow.

I’m hoping that any self-respecting Glaswegian will have already got themselves home for Hogmanay and we’ll have a nice empty flight, but I have a bad feeling that we may very well be spending the evening with a plane full of pissed-up Weegies. Still, as being trapped and kept up all night with a load of drunks is what your average New Year’s Eve feels like anyway, we might as well get both horrors over with in one go. In fact, the worst part of the journey will likely be getting from Glasgow to Bigtown on a day when the entire public transport system of Scotland is either shut down or hungover. And then getting ourselves acclimatised again to rural plumbing after three weeks of fire-hose strength showers.

Here’s hoping you have a pleasant and enjoyable New Year and a splendid and prosperous 2013.

    Happy New Year to you as well. We too are heading back the the Old World, and will presumably ring in the New Year somewhere over Greenland.
    My best guess.

    ‘Weegies’ — new word! Thanks!

    Hope you get back to Colorado soon. Hope we can tour around your corner of the world at some point too.

    Hope you make it home all right and in a timely fashion, and that your flight is relatively Weegie-less, especially of the pissed up kind.

    Thanks all! Made it home after a relatively subdued flight, bit jetlagged though …
