Killing a bit of time while my camera battery charges. I fly out to LA in the morning! I probably should sleep, but who could?

I was a big ball of stress all day today until about 6pm or so. I picked up some final supplies for my trip. A loose pair of jeans that I can wear with my stompy gryphon feet, a luggage strap, and a US->AU plug adapter (un-earthed, d'oh!).

Rose finished the modifications to my fursuit, Whyrl 1.5. The stompy feet are awesome and fun to wear! The new tail looks much better than the old one too. No other changes to the partial other than some repair work to the arms and new claws on the hands.

I've packed way less for my trip than I did last time. This makes me very nervous and I can't shake the feeling I've forgotten something important. I'm sure I'll remember something when I'm on the plane, or possibly the first night when I open my luggage and can't find whatever I really need at that moment.

My cat Tiberius is purring and cuddling with me as I type this. How am I going to survive three weeks without my kitty??

Con badge from Rose. I need to get this printed!

I've got the awesomest collection of badges!

The eagle has landed

...and I'm stuck in LAX until my ride shows up!

This makes me nervous because I'm uncontactable except online. I dished out the $7.99 to connect to T-Mobile's wifi here. Wifi should be free in airports, dammit! It's a pain in the butt having a phone that doesn't work. I have a prepaid AT&T sim but it's expired and useless. Why doesn't AT&T have a presence here?? This airport is all kinds of retarded.

So anyway, talons crossed that I'm not waiting here much longer.

V Australia = massive win. The plane was great, the flight relatively smooth, reasonable legroom, comfy seats, good food (except the lemon cheesecake which tried to kill me), and we were only in the air for 12 hours instead of 15 like the United flight last year.

It's misty and rainy here in LA, which is good because it hides this fugly shithole city. Perhaps more importantly, it washes away the smell.

My body clock is screwed up majorly. I got maybe 1 or 2 hours of sleep on the plane. I did however get a good night's sleep before I left, which is a huge advantage over last time.

It's so weird being in an airport and not wearing a tail.

I want to go upstairs where there's icecream and a power point for my laptop, but I don't want to leave the arrivals lounge in case Wolfwings shows up.
