For the things in life which make me glad I'm not dead yet.
Well, this is it — the end of our holiday. Mercifully the return flight was a lot less painful than the flight out there. Having the shorter trip first made a big difference I think; after 10 hours on a plane the last thing you want to do is step right onto another one, but it doesn’t seem as bad [...]
Probably the most depressing part of the Holiday was seeing how even the native tribe fo the hala-whatever-tutu are abuing the Grand Canyon. We went to the SkyWalk, which I have to say was a huge disappointment. I had infinitely more fun larking about on the rocks and near the edge of the canyon [...]
The big day; the reason for our trip in the first place. The “Little chaple of the West” certainly was little. The ceremony lasted a marathon 5 minutes 50 seconds, give or take, and the certificate of marriage came complete with an annulment form I understand 🙂

I haven’t seen Penn & Teller perform since sometime back in the early nineties when they [...]
Our first proper day in Vegas; we walked down the strip stopping off at various places along the way; we took a trip up the Eiffel Tower in Paris to get a view of the Strip. We went to see the Blue Man Group in the evening; the tickets were pretty pricey, but the show was well worth it in the end. [...]
It’s my birthday!

Hayley got me a Nintendo Wii with WiiSports, WiiPlay, Call of Duty 3 & Zelda: Twilight Princess for my birthday. Oh and a cookie the size of a pizza! Met up with a few friends in the Royal Oak for a couple of drinks to commiserate the passing of yet another year; I’m creeping worryingly close to [...]
