No, I didn't eat that many xiao long baos

It's one thing to have a flight delayed for over an hour due to a "technical malfunction", but to spend that time stuck in the packed airplane with the bloody Garuda Indonesia anthem playing on an unremitting loop is the perfect recipe for a little air rage, if you ask me. If you haven't heard it, it's an overwrought, pseudo-operatic, well-muzaked paean to soulless corporate slash nationalist self-importance. On an unremitting loop. Good thing I had Michael Pollan's very engrossing The Omnivore's Dilemma to read.

The worst part? As I was settling down to sleep at home last night, the bloody Garuda song popped, unbidden, into my head again. It's about the most annoying earworm evar.

The obligatory blog post about my travels to come later. I need to clear some work first.
