A Dispatch from Iceland

3/09 Friday Night

Flight to Iceland on Icelandair from JFK

9:52 pm: “We will serve you a varm meal…chicken curry”. Space Cowboys is the movie of choice. There is complimentary red wine. I would kill for coffee right now but it is 9:50 pm. which would be vacation day-one suicide. It feels strange but nonchalant to be on vacation. We have no agenda for the next 2 days. Icelandair so far has been pleasant. Classical music in their waiting area at JFK to soothe your preflight jitters.This movie is un bearable. 2-3 more hours of flight time.

The stewardesses are nice,efficient and none of that fake sunshine bullshit. We get there promptly on time.
