Still the best description of it I've read:
She knows, now, absolutely, hearing the white noise that is London, that Damien's theory of jet lag is correct: that her mortal soul is leagues behind her, being reeled in on some ghostly umbilical down the vanished wake of the plane that brought her here, hundreds of thousands of feet above the Atlantic. Souls can't move that quickly, and are left behind, and must be awaited, upon arrival, like lost luggage.

Or, that she should have skipped dinner on the plane and had a big breakfast the moment she landed.

Really? That works? I felt that the big problem was lack of sleep, but then my cicadian rhythm is pretty, um, flexible.

Apparently, meals are the key. And yes, it seems to work. Coming back from the States has always been a big hassle for me, but this time around I didn't have any problems getting up the day after or feeling out of place (well, not more than usual).
