Stansted Airport

Well, the flight got in 20 minutes early, which was a nice surprise. I've already cleared customs, and i'm currently sat at the Pret A Manger in the main Stansted Terminal.having just finished off a Smoked Salmon sandwich and a bag of crisps. I *really* needed something to eat and theres a distinct lack of a burger king here - which there used to be many years ago. It was also a damn sight cheaper to get a sandwich, than pay for something on the flight - £1.40 for a small tub of pringles?! You've got to be fucking kidding!

However, they did have a decent deal on train tickets. See, to get to Stansted, i took the Stansted Express, which for all of 15 minutes and 2 stops, costs a whopping £15 which is pretty fucking steep. On the plane, the rather fit, somewhat large breasted irish girl that tried to interest me in her snacks, offered me a single ticket to London for only £10 - which is a decent saving. Then again, she was fit enough that she could have offered me a bucket of dung and i'd have paid for it.

Unfortunately, the wireless internet access they provide in the terminal isn't free, which is an arse - and if you did want to pay for it, it's rediculously expensive - at £3 for 10 minutes!

Right - time to pack this crap up and get going - i want to be back at the flat before 1pm....

If i don't post later, then i'd like to wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year. I'm hoping that 2007 is going to be at least marginally better than last year...
