I'm sorry. It's all a bit shit really, isn't it.

I hope they at least offer a full refund.
Have you tried poking them with a stick yet? Squeaky wheel and all that.

I think they are just overall pear-shaped just now and I'm pretty sure the flight's not happening. I went to "manage your booking" online and the computer said "no". The notice said something along the lines of "you can't manage this booking online and please call an agent". I've tried messaging them with the booking number, but nada. I could try waiting for a live person - if it's all canceled I would just like to know, and ideally get a refund but would take a new flight over Christmas or even the voucher although I'm a bit worried about their long-term health.

Well I woke up with stomach cramps and a bit heady... Nice

Here's to hoping I just undercooked the chicken last night.

That sounds like a euphemism for something.

Being woken up at 3am by some sort of small explosion sound. No idea what it was but scared the sleep out of me, and freaked the dog out. I assume maybe a shipping contained was dropped at the port or something, pretty sure it wasn't an explosion, just the best to describe the loudness of the sound.

Probably the bottom falling out of the market.

Conservatives who cry about people getting a meager $700 a month on social assistance proclaiming those on assistance need to get less, and then holding their hand out wanting help now. Weird line of thinking those people have.
