I had a layover in Minneapolis, but I didn't see Larry Craig.

The plane from Amsterdam to Minneapolis had individual video screens with video on demand. Despite there being about 60 different movies available, the only one I actually wanted to watch was "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". (I watched it. It was okay, but I think I've now seen enough '80s teen movies for a lifetime. If I feel the need to watch another, I'll just watch "Heathers" again.) I watched the first few minutes each of "State of Play", "Lol" (not kidding), "The Uninvited", and "Two Lovers", all of which seemed crap, before settling on "April Bride" as a second movie. It wasn't bad, but the plane landed about halfway through.

There were also games. There was a trivia game where you could play against other people on the same flight, and it also had an all-time hall of fame with people listed by their seat number and flight number.

Having shown my passport once in Portland, twice in Amsterdam, four times in Bristol, twice in Edinburgh, and once in Minneapolis, I didn't get my gender contested once. So that's good (I guess). This might have been the last time I fly out of or into the US, given recent policy changes.

Now I'm sick, so the quest for a thesis topic will have to wait at least one more day.

Finally, an unrelated random poll )
