Back in the US again, in NJ/NYC for a week.  The trip was uneventful, although the movie selection on the plane was unusually poor (with the exception of Little Miss Sunshine, which turns out to be hilarious).  Fortunately, I had brought plenty to read.

The takeoff from London got delayed by a couple of hours by the following chain of circumstances starting from the current cold weather: the crew got in late and needed to rest, so the plane sat on the runway and got cold, so they needed to deice it.  But then they discovered that their deicing equipment had frozen up (!) and so they had to warm up their deicing equipment before they could deice the plane...

Deicing, by the way, is extremely cool if you are inside the plane: huge jets of steam billowing round everything.
