We are currently sat in the departure lounge after I was groped, in a rather overly friendly manner, by a security guard for having buckles on my boots. Not entirely sure why it was done so thoroughly; but a little concerned I might be pregnant as a result of it.

Following that we were both stopped by a beady eyed elderly security lady who insisted on swabbing our remaining possessions for explosives. Was very serious and did not take kindly to any of my interest on what documentaries I have seen on airport security. Expecting to be shot at with arrows upon arriving at the US.

Nothing else exciting to report as yet, Dan kindly drove through the night and I fought the urge to sleep. Eventually was over taken by the urge and Dan was graced with the, ever elegant, head back - gob open sleeping position modelled by me.

Also Dan just returned from the privy to inform me that there was a gentleman washing his hands in there... Who still had his gloves on. Do what you will with that information, just thought it was worth sharing.

Both well and happy and quite, quite sleepy x

Quarter of the way update: landed in Charlotte after a turbulence tastic flight. Fortunately we were both so exhausted we slept like a drunk in a shop doorway. Much less frisking over here but lots more serious questions and eye brow raising. They stole our finger prints and cornea then let us in.

Desperate for the loo after the long flight I potter to the 'rest room' and was greeted by a very family guy Spanish maid esq toilet attendant, eager for tips. Aware I had no money on me I decided I would not let her doing ANYTHING for me so she would not warrant a tip. Everything appeared to be going smoothly until, as I was washing my hands I heard, "Erm, excuse me Miss?", in a strong Spanish accent, "Miss? Your dress is tucked into you underwear..." with no money for tips to thank the kind lady for saving me from mooning America within minutes of arrival I thanked her in a loosely verbal manner, yanked my dress from her hands and ran out of the doors like I was robbing the joint. Note to self: Always carry money for occasions such as this which are BOUND to happen again.

In other news, both Dan and My British accents seem to have enhanced dramatically. Have started saying "THANK you" like Elizabeth Bennett.

Final report of the day, am aware all will be a slumbering as it's 2am there; but we have just landed safe and sound and INCREDIBLY smelly at Vegas. Only in America do the passengers whoop and cheer as the plane is landing.

You don't have to pay people for your dignity in the toilets here but I still came armed with a quarter, ( "you are not having a pound for a pee Annie!!!"), but was able to dispense it back into Dan's slacks.

Hope you are all well, we are going to fall through the doors of Wallmart since neither of us, wisely, bought deodorant and feel it imperative that some is purchased immediately. Then I am on the hunt for some meat.

Much love from us both
