I traveled for the new year this time around. I woke up at 5am for an 8:30am departure. I was rather tired, and I wanted the plane to get going, but after boarding we had to sit around for a while because there was a problem with the water on board and we had to get off the runway and go back to dock.
We probably sat in the plane for forty minutes before it took off. I had to catch an 11:15 bus when I left the airport (the one after 11:15 left at 1:15, and I didn't want to wait that long) so I was anxiously (and tiredly) looking at the on-flight TV screen, which was displaying the time.
I kept wondering why it wasn't changing when I realized that 737 wasn't the time but the aircraft I was on.
Have a great 2013!
