Brief update from across the pond.
I got here ok! The journey wasn't too bad, there were no screeming kids, or moronic parents for that matter. The landing was a little bumpy, but by no means the worse I've had to suffer. It was *after* the landing that things got bad. First the family in front of me at immigration took the best part of 45 minutes! Now RDU is not the biggest of airports, and there is only one desk for dealing with "foreign" people, so I just had to wait. Misty had been seen, and could have got all our luggage by the time I was done, except the luggage courosel broke. So we waited some more! After another 30 minutes or so, the airport staff moved our luggage by hand to a corner of the room. There was a mad scramble, and people lived up to their normal selfish bastard ways, like grabbing their luggage and then STAYING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ALL GETTING IN THE FUCKING WAY COS THEY'D BE CLOSER TO THE EXIT! To top it all off nicely Misty had a full cavity search. no actually I'm just kidding, but they did pick her out at the metal detector for a more thorough screening, and her handbag was x-rayed twice. I recon she must look suspicious! :)

Needless to say Mistys dad was already there and waiting for us when we finally got out of the terminal.

The car trip to Mistys dads house was without incident, I managed to finish reading all but a couple of pages of "Enigma". The book finished completely differently to the film, which didn't surprise me much as it had started completely differently too!

Since then we have eaten out a couple times, done some shopping (I've got a very nice back-pack now!) and played some Yahtzee ... except it's called "Dicey"!

Must go take a shower, we're off to catch a movie later...

Current Mood: awake awake

Copywrite is a strange thing ... produce a game with exactly the same rules as Yahtzee ... but call it something stupid like Dicey .. and you can get away with it! ... I dont know! :)

hmm, Richard thinks we should do that too, stupidly mentioned it to him after we were all discussing it in the spoons .. would rather use my back-pack on a wander around Thailand ... much warmer :o) ... and the beach area is a little less hilly
