“Good evening ladies and gentlemen. We are now halfway through our flight from Hong Kong to Limerick, and I just thought I’d let you know that I. Am. Bored. Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored. We are, unbelievably, still flying over Russia, which continues to be stupidly big. Really enormous. Far bigger than necessary. We’ve been in the air now for about a week. And it doesn’t look like we’ll be landing until the last syllable of recorded time. So, if anyone on board knows any card tricks, ghost stories, or would like to have some sex, please do make your way to the flight deck. Thank you.” —Roger Allam as Douglas in John Finnemore’s Cabin Pressure (via luunacyy)
