On a very special, emotionally draining, trip. We upgraded to make the best of it. Finnair downgraded me AT THE GATE! The flight is overbooked & ”the computer” selected me. bit.ly/2YrRhO7

We sit on our own, which is just what we didn’t want. The flight crew do their best. There is not much they can do.

I get no meal on an 11 hour trip because in economy class you have to book a vegetarian meal in advance.

Thank you @captionbot - I just posted a photo and forgot to add the caption, and it came to my rescue.

Sometimes bots are good :)

Last week the wind was so hard it blew leaves off the trees and the sun was so hot that it turned them brown while they lay on the ground. Instant autumn.

According to PC Mag, over 25% of bandwidth on the internet is used by people watching videos from Netflix and YouTube. This means that within less than thirty years of the invention of the web browser we have turned the internet into another way of watching TV.

Consumers gotta consume.

Nothing like folks who walk into an elevator and stop in the middle or enter a train and post up just barely inside the doorway. Just, moving with the flow of humans and abruptly stopping because they reached their destination and damn people who want or need to go past.
