We arrived at our hotel Oamaru, NZ, about 11 pm local time last night. 48 hours door to door from our house to here. This was easily the worst flying experience in many, many years, top three or top five lifetime. Among other things, I was set back about $1,100 in unexpected (and unbudgeted) costs in order to simply get here.

Nonetheless, we are in New Zealand with [info]danjite and [info]khaybee and happy to be so. Everyone is ok, if a bit overtired and jet lagged. This morning we are off to do cheese, and later, penguins.

Irregular blogging will continue until morals improve.

Then I hope that irregular blogging continues forever, because your morals don't need improvement. :)

Glad you made it safely down there. I hope the gravity boots work.

As long as "irregular" equals "frequent," my dear, then I will steadfastly be petitioning Heaven for a continuing decline in morality.

Eep, 48 hours?!

I'm pretty sure I caught sight of you and your party in the queues to get through transit security in Sydney, implying we were on the same United flight from SFO to SYD. You were several rows away in the queue and it didn't seem the place to start shouting across 100 people. By the time it occurred to me I could simply have waited on the other side I was elsewhere and didn't see you when I thought to come back.

Sorry we missed you! That would have been hilarious.

Neither of us would have been at our best, but yeah, I would have liked to have said hello to you all. Enjoy our hemisphere! :)

So glad you're all there in one piece, if a bit tattered.
