All your usual standard stuff, park the van, check in, shit it because we can't find our passports then realise they're in the other pocket, having our balls patted by some intrusive stranger to make sure we don't have semtex nutsacks. Y'know, all the regular business. Also, don't forget the purchase of some duty free booze - I've heard stories about the price of booze in Finland....the horror! Then to board the plane and do some rock n roll sleeping!

As it happens, we got to the security check point and Adam got fondled by an over friendly guard and Chis' bag got held up for ages. They kept it on side for about 20 minutes, the security woman kept picking it up and putting it down again like it was some kind of christmas present that she was trying to guess the contents of. To get things moving it took me going over and asking if they were going to give us our bag back or if they were going to pay for some more plane tickets as they were going to cause us to miss the plane at this rate. Some jobsworth then decided it was his duty to x-ray Chis' roll of gaffer tape to make sure that Abu Hamza wasn't hiding inside of it, this annoyed me immensley as we very nearly didn't make the plane and only just got on before they shut the doors. I'm beginning to dislike Heathrow, it's been a massive hassle every time I've been there....
