May be afk for a few days

We are safely in Florida, but the journey was horrible. We:
* did not miss our flight
* the plane did not crash, get diverted or hijacked
* received our luggage at the other end
* our luggage was on time & had nothing missing
* arrived without having received any injuries
* did not get detained in US Immigration
yet Richard still thinks it was the worst flight he's ever had!

Also, we have arrived at the house to find the internet doesn't work. So I've had to buy a US SIM card for my phone simply to get net access. It is UNBEARABLY slow & keeps disconnecting, but better than nothing. However, posting takes forever.

And Richard's paintball friends are faffier than bisexuals! Seriously - I didn't believe it was possible, but they are! Going shopping or out for dinner with them is a nightmare because they can't make decisions about ANYTHING!

And just to make things perfect, I accidentally left my carbamazepine at home, so had to pay $60 to the doctor in a walk-in clinic to get a prescription for 8 days supply. Fortunately, it's an ancient drug (been out since the 60s) and I could get it on generic, so it was only about $21 despite having to pay full-price. Still, that's $81 I didn't *need* to spend.

Hopefully I'll be able to do some sightseeing tomorrow...
