... when crossing the International Dateline to the east? Leave Sydney at 9:00 pm, arrive in Honolulu at 10:35 am, and then in Los Angeles at 9:20 pm the same day. I love it.
The luggage arrived with me too. I slept for a straight twelve hours -- from midnight to noon. Then shot the breeze with Corey (with whom I'm staying at UCLA) -- you know, philosophy, life, the universe, everything. The kinds of conversations that make it all so much more interesting.
And I'm still sleepy.
Red-eye to Newark tonight. Then back home in the morning. Good old South Carolina. Woo hoo! (Those in Cola ... anyone up for the standard routine when G gets back in town: Thai at 7pm. You know where!)
