Funny thing no.1 : When I rang Wim from the airport to say I'd found the baggage claim and was waiting for my bag, he mis-heard me as saying my bag was missing. So it is clearly his fault it actually _did_ go missing! (Never mind the fact it must have been selected for screening several hours earlier!)
Funny thing no. 2: I had been saying all along that a bag containing a large octopus was clearly suspicious and likely to get stopped. (We had been joking about the relative suspicion of a dirty well-loved octopus vs a recently laundered one).
Funny thing no. 3: Customs/Security have stolen one of my jars of chocolate spread. Now, either chocolate spread is a prohibited item or not - why take one and not the other?!
Anyway, local time here is hideously early in the morning, so I am going back to bed. See some of you tonight :)
