I want to bury my head in the sand.

Surprise, surprise. We received our bill from TelstraClear, and (wait for it) they charged us for the new remote control.

An old remote control is going out in a prepaid courier pack today.

Am I the only one who finds it funny, if I want to rent a car in Ameriky, I need an international driver licence. My U.S. driver licence expired about five years ago. And I’m not a U.S. resident.

And am I the only one who missed last year’s news, when the domestic airlines in Ameriky started charging for checked bags? Because of higher fuel costs?

So let me get this straight. I can’t carry on any liquids over 100mls, and I have to pay for the privilege of a checked bag.

We have a multi-stop ticket in the USA. Am I not an international traveller is the question I am just about to ask the good folks at American Airlines.

None of our bags are the right size. Our carry-on bags are too small, and our checked bags are too big.

In other news, there are a few more unconfirmed cases of whooping cough (pertussis) around the village. It’s starting to seem like an epidemic.
