If your mouse is ever playing up and darting across the screen rather than behaving istself do the following:

1. Check your drunkeness. 12 beers in 2 hours may affect your mouse co-ordination skills.
2. From the printer, open the printer tray and take a piece of paper. Put that under the mouse. Your mouse may start working correctly.

The reason is that most Qantas Clubs use Infra-Red mouses. These rely on smoothness of surfaces as well as some other quirks. A piece of blank, white paper helps the infra-red to work correctly.
 
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.

My money is on point number one as the most likely cause :!:
