Ok, figured out why I couldn't get a schedule on the Jetstar schedule… - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet.... — LiveJournal
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Ok, figured out why I couldn't get a schedule on the Jetstar schedule for Japan: they don't fly from Brisbane, they fly from the Gold Coast. The airfare for return flights to Tokyo is fantastic, around $600.00. Exactly what I was hoping for! Maybe it doesn't have the perks of JAL, but it's not a long-haul flight (8-9 hours) and I can spend just a bit extra on accomodation in Tokyo and Kyoto. Huzzah!

We've got a long weekend here for Australia Day. I couldn't get myself whipped up into a patriotic fervour if I tried, so as usual I'll be listening to Triple J's Hottest 100 countdown and probably reading a book. I'll be cooking a nice lamb and halloumi dish for dinner that night, feeling stupid all the while because I think I've been influenced by those stupid Sam Kekovich ads where he sings the praises of the meat in the form of ranting. ;p

And now if you'll excuse me, SBS are screening the 'We Are One' concert. I don't care that we're getting it a few days late, I'm just glad we're getting it at all!

Current Mood: content content
Current Music: Now-President Obama being announced at the concert, yeyz!

So, I've been invited to a belated Australia Day party next Saturday that's hosted by my Australian professor. Are there any traditions I should be aware of so I don't cause accidental offense? I'm assuming it's okay to come wearing my shirt that has a picture of Uncle Sam taking a giant bite out of the globe and underneath it the phrase "Try and Stop Us", but I just wanted to check.

Oh, of course, just as long as Uncle Sam isn't biting out the part of the globe with Australia on it. ;p At this point in time, I would not bring up how badly our cricket team is doing- the South Africans are pretty much whoopin' their ass. And you may be asked to try Vegemite, which I quite like, but most Americans as a general rule find disgusting. Consider yourself warned!

I thought Jetstar only flew to Osaka? There you go! Just be careful- I very much doubt it would go into Tokyo itself - no-one ever flies there because the landing fees are too expensive and blah blah blah - the closest that even JAL go to is Narita - which is a good 30 minute train ride from Tokyo. :) Still very awesome and easy to find though. How exciting!
