Yesterday was spent in L.A. for work. After the work part, we explored a bit and had a couple hours of fun before heading back to Seattle.
I'm always amazed that I can fly from Washington to southern California and back all in one day (even though it's not very fun). Also equally amazing is the amount of technology available to you while flying Virgin America. You can watch satellite TV. You can play video games. You can catch a movie or listen to a decent selection of music. You can order a meal right from your seat. You can hop on the wifi and browse the Internet. Except for on our flight home, the wifi was down and the dude next to me grumbled about how he didn't get a partial refund on his plane ticket "like last time." Dude. You can watch TV, play video games, order snacks, and catch a movie, ON A FREAKING PLANE, yet you're upset that you can't surf the web? Are you serious? At one point the satellite TV fizzled out and the show I was watching disappeared, and I even caught myself thinking, "Aw damn this sucks! I want my MTV!" And then I was reminded of the clip below, and how honestly, everything really is AWESOME and nobody is happy. And I banished that thought and did crosswords on my iphone instead. He he. Seriously, our society has issues.
I'm guilty guilty guilty of technological ingratitude. But at least I wasn't looking for a discount like Captain Snuggle Pants next to me, who was cooing at and tickling his girlfriend the entire ride home. He even pinched her nose a couple times. I suppose a lack of wifi prompted him to get closer to his lady and have some real human interaction instead. Barf.
