almost there...

The flight to Heathrow was okay, albeit disappointing that Virgin has changed their entertainment system! No longer on-demand which is what was so great before, but now only scheduled programming, and of course the two shows I wanted to see were scheduled at the same time on different channels, and I had to watch 1.5 hrs of other stuff I didn't want to see to catch the one 30 minute show I wanted...where was TiVo when you need it? ;) I did see Peep Show, billed as a cross between The Young Ones and The Office, which was quite clever and funny, so watch for it if it makes it to BBC America. Maybe on the way back I can catch the other one ("Spaced" I think?) by the director of Shaun of the Dead...

Frustrating note is that mrmouse's two checked bags totaled over the weight limit for BMI so they charged him £50 extra...argh! At least we'll be there soon, and we won't be flying BMI any more after this much for the £4 fare we found, at least for him. My bag was okay, thank goodness!

More later!
