I woke up today, determined to go out and buy that big luggage that I need to use to drag all my stuff to Las Vegas (for the CES 08) in Jan. Jon said, “but don’t you already have a few luggages?”. Yes, I do but I need a bigger one! I have to pack in my clothes, the thick jackets and erm BOOKS and magazines.
Yes, a few books. Not for work but for reading on the flight.
I found out this morning from my good friend, the brilliant producer and news anchor for Channel News Asia, Timothy Go that this annoying habit is called In-Flight Information Deficiency. Tim wrote,
This is someone who, before and during a flight, has a fear of not having enough to read on board a flight, no matter how short or long.
Although I seldom read on board the plane, because I get motion sickness and the pills I take before the flight makes me drowsy and I fall asleep. BUT, I still worry that I do not have enough things to do on the plane. The flight to Vegas is at least 16 hours and I am already panicking about which books to drag along.
But I think, my problem continues even after the flight. I constantly worry about, “What if I finish reading the books i brought along… 😦 and have nothing to do at the hotel?”
It gets worse if I am on holiday, to stop me from worrying, Jon will volunteer to bring more books in his luggage for me.
Ok! Time to go out now to buy luggage.
