So the flight to Sydney was relatively uneventful. I managed to get a reasonable amount of sleep, and with the assistance of some Coke, I've managed to stay awake and will probably last until a reasonable bed time for this time zone.
The general suckiness is because they managed to lose my bag. I feel totally naked without a functional mobile phone. My work one isn't roaming for some reason (it seems to be the phone itself, and so I'm assuming it's a GSM900 thing), and my personal Australian one is in the lost bag.
Then I discovered that United didn't take the I-94 out of my passport when I checked in, so that's probably going to cause me all sorts of immigration grief when I return to the United States.
