21 hours to kill



It is just now hitting me that I have a 21 hr flight next week! Anyone have any suggestions for ways to endure such a long time in a confined space? 
Also, after 21 hrs of flying I arrive in an 11 hr different time zone. How does one completely flip days and nights? I have tried several ineffective methods in the past. The worst one is thinking that staying up the night before your trip will help you adjust time zones. Really it just makes you extra tired! 
I heard about The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta today on NPR. I can't remember the last time a book sounded so fascinating to me. I plan to download it to my Nook and read it on the flight- if I can wait that long. (The story picks up a few months after the "Sudden Departure" - a very Rapture like event. It follows the lives of those left behind who are struggling to understand what happened, why it happened, and why some people were taken and not others. And many "christians" are mad that Jews and Mormons were taken, and not them.) 
But I need more entertainment! And tips for the time change! I know some of you have flown to Asia before. What did you do?

  1. I recommend anything by Ron Jonson (author of Men Who Stare at Goats). He's hilarious and his stories are true.
