I can’t sleep on planes dude to my (self-diagnosed) ADHD, so my biggest fear when travelling on one is that the tv screen won’t work. And they won’t move my seat. And I have nothing to do. Nothing to do.

NOTHINGGGGGGGGGGGG.

I’m freaking out with boredom just thinking about it.

When I went into the final waiting area before my flight, I panicked – my netbook battery was dying, I had no papers, no books…what if the unthinkable happened? Sweat started pouring from my head (metaphorically speaking).

Then I saw it. It was like a shining beacon of hope.

How sweet is this?! I admit I’m a sucker for vending machines for non-edible products (and an even bigger one for edible stuff) but this took it to the next level….

Then I saw it…

Just £4! Delivered! Well delivered one metre…but still…

It came in its own heavy duty cardboard box…with a ‘free bookmark’ which looked suspiciously like a piece of the box ripped off (but I’m not a hata, so I give them the benefit of the doubt)…

The finished article.

Ok I really feel like a country-bumpkin now.
