Hi guys. I'm currently corresponding from an internet cafe type thing 10p a minute at Heathrow.

Yes, your friendly neighbourhood Cockney Sparrow got through check in (did it yesterday online) and bag drop (fast drop) with a breathtaking ease not normally seen on a normal day.

I even got through security pretty quickly cos I was singled out to do some new Body Scan thing. It may have scrambled my insides but I jumped the queue! I had to take my shoes off, which woulda been ok but I'm wearing converse baseball shoes and it took some doing.

Nice and humiliating to show everyone my sanitary towels but fuck you I don't care. They let me take my Midol through and so that may be ok.

Surviving without iPod by humming Not Guilty by George Harrison to meself loudly. Don't give a shit what people think.

Had chicken & bacon salad at Wetherspoons on airside with a nice cold Jamesons although the bloke looked at me weirdly. So what if it's not midday yet? Like I fucking care. Can't buy duty free whiskey cos I can't TAKE IT ON THE FUCKING PLANE!

What else? Don't know. Don't care. Want to get to Detroit now. Movies on board better be good.

I'm really fucking lucky when you think about it. Somebody Up There Likes Me. Just wish I knew why.

*hugs tightly*

I'm just VERY TIRED of you being in such close proximity to the crazy. *hugs again* I'm so sorry that people, in general, suck. Get here safe if you can, and we will try to make it up to you.

Yeah, it just occurred to me that this is the SECOND TIME the terrorists have nearly blown up my favourite English girl (who really loves Ireland). It's madness!

WHY WON'T THE TERRORISTS LEAVE YOU ALONE, CLARE?! (Sorry about the all caps. I'm in a mood).

Actually, it's at least the third time- I flew to America on the 10th September 2001...

Also, just for my own clarity, I'm Irish-Anglo... and that's the order of importance.

I'm having such a good time and it was SO worth the hassle

I knew you were part Irish but I wasn't sure how much or - now I know. Irish-Anglo. There we go.

And I'm glad you're having fun! :D

I was thinking about you the whole time I was watching the news come though.

*hugs tight*

Thanks matey- it all worked out in the end, but I was so much more exhausted than I should've been.

Things did get better, although I was SO SO tired. Still am, in fact. Worth it to be here.

I was only like 2 1/2 hours or so late in the end... bastards.

Be safe, Clare. I get the lovely special treatment every time I fly. I must fit the terrorist profile (short, dumpy middle-aged woman :)

I had an OK time of it in the end... but it just took forever. When you willingly watch She's The Man starring Amanda Bynes, you know...

Amanda makes a lousy man, doesn't she? :))

*hugs* Gah, I hope you didn't suffer too much on the flight here (and I am definitely hoping you got to fly out).

You now know that I did get here fine... Was SO COOL to see you! *hugs*
