Travel rants are boring.

This one is about sexism, plastic bags and regular good old fashioned sadness at the state of the world. I got like 2 hours of sleep so I’ll admit that my general (though learned) airport zen was teetering bit, but the fact remains I was traveling through my second favorite airport, London City.

Dispassionate about Malaysia

Seriously, what the fuck should I do for the next few hours. I have tasks, but I don’t want to do any of them. They’re boring me. But I’ve got 3.5 hours to kill until I have to go to the airport and leave this god awful country behind. I’m in Malaysia, I don’t like [&hellip
