How do you pass the time during a flight? What do you bring in your carry-on?
Drink beer and white wine. If the flight is ANA, I'll see at least one movie, whichever seems the most interesting, or heart-warming one. If the flight is United, I skip the movie part since it's not on demand. Then I listen to the music and Podcasts, then read some books. Sleep.
There're no much choices for carry-on items these days, if you're flying to US/UK. So all I'm bringing in is books, iPod and the laptop. I rarely use the laptop though. If I have some projects that I can work on, I'll launch the emacs and svk to hack on, but most of the time I don't.
