*cough* That’s me! *cough*

Update from London

1. My brain has apparently decided that 4am is wake up time, no matter what time I go to sleep. I’m currently running on about 4 and a quarter hours of sleep and it is NOT going to end well. 

2. I’ve been away from Tumblr for like two days and about five people have changed their URLs and profile pictures and I have no fucking clue who anyone is any more. 

3. I didn’t think it was possible, but it seems that Qantas love Marvel movies even more than I do. The movie choices on the flight included X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Iron Man 3. How many DC movies were on offer? ZERO. MWAHAHAHAHA. 

4. Drinking a pint of cider on an empty stomach when you haven’t slept in 24 hours is a terrible idea. 

5. I thought I was over how weird it is seeing Kate Middleton (who I went to primary school with)’s face in magazines and on the news. Then I saw a painting of her in the National Portrait Gallery and I’m back to not being able to process the weirdness.

please someone reassure my this is just fuckin  w people right.

this is bullshit what the fuck

Wait y’alls cups are really that small? holy fuck

why the fuck anyone needs 1.3L of coke in one sitting is beyond me but anyway

YOU EXPECT YOUR CHILDREN TO DRINK 700ML DRINKS TO COME WITH THEIR FUCKING HAPPY MEAL??? FUCK OUTTA HERE AMERICA

We have a “Kids” size that is smaller than the small. It’s like an Australian medium (which is the same size as a can of coke btw). Also, in the US all of the sizes cost the same amount. $1. You basically pick based on how much soda you want, not how much you want to pay. Which is excellent…if you want to give an entire nation diabetes. 
Sometimes I get a little frustrated when people talk about how McDonald’s is bad for you and then in the same breath propose going to a local restaurant where they buy a half-pound bacon cheeseburger. The wheat is the same wheat, the meat is the same meat. There’s nothing about McDonald’s that’s intrinsically bad for you except portion sizes, which are just as bad, if not worse, at sit-down service places.
There’s this perception that McDonald’s is junk food simply because it’s McDonald’s and, frankly, I’m starting to think it’s classist. Like, It’s where poor people go, so it must not be substandard.
The only problem with McDonald’s is that when you get a Big Mac Meal with large fries and a coke, you’re getting 1,300 calories set in front of you…and unfortunately it tastes so damn good that you’ll eat the whole thing. 
Oh…another problem with McDonald’s is that to keep their prices low they pay poverty-level wages to, increasingly, adult professional people, but that’s not what I hear people complaining about.

I’m totally on board with everything Hank says here, except that a can of Coke isn’t 500mL. In Australia, a can of Coke is 375mL, and in most places around the world a can is 355mL. Not 500mL.

So I’m currently sitting on the floor at Melbourne Airport next to the only power point I could find (I managed to almost completely drain my phone’s battery on the bus here) waiting to board a flight to London. Which basically means that I’m going to be a little scarce around these parts for the next three and a half weeks. But rest assured, I will return with a vengeance when I return to reality!
