LAX Air New Zealand Lounge

Well I’m in LA now, Woot!, hoping the Air NZ lounge makes up for the hassle of going through security a second time…

OMG, this place is heaven compared to downstairs…

There’s Rugby on the TV, there’s really nice food, and beer, wine & spirits.

Comfortable chairs, power points, and free Wi-Fi.

Now I just need to work-out how to keep my Gold status…

On my way back to New Zealand

Well, it’s that time of the of the year, so I’m traveling for work. Strangely for the last four years, I’ve done a NZUSA trip, and this one was a bit of a surprise trip.

Anyway, I’m currently at Denver (DIA) in the United Red Carpet Club, and it’s so much better that hanging out in the terminal. Free Wifi, free coffee (instant machine stuff) and small snack items. Oh and the seats are comfortable.

Not so keen for the 9 hours I have in L.A. but there is an Air New Zealand lounge there so it shouldn’t be too bad ;-)

I read a travel tip somewhere suggesting carrying a power strip, and presently that would be useful, as the one near me is has both port blocked by someone’s huge MacBookPro power brick.

Pointless Post: 20K SPAM Barrier Hit

Woot!, I just passed the 20,000 SPAM barrier

Had been awaiting this for a few weeks, but the spam rate has recently dropped, so it didn’t occurs as soon as I expected…

Talking of SPAM, I had some the other day, because you know, it’s sold here. It was disturbing that in the ingredients listed “Pork with Ham”, ummm ham is pork, so then what is the pork? Opening the can it smelt like cat food, and tasted as I’d always expected cat food to be like. I fried some up, and it was better, but I’ll never eat it again, unless there some sort of end-of-world event. Also of interest, is notice on the can picture, the thing you can’t really see below the cheese in the burger, that’s the product in the can.
