Ok, so the flight wasn't actually THAT bad, had nearly 100 films to choose from, as many TV shows and even games. Played Sudoko with my little hand held thingy for a while and watched soem trashy TV shows, and then finally got round to starting a film (love the whole can start and stip it when you feel like it - I always hated that on planes when you miss half the film if you got a for a potter round the plane!). So anyway, started watching a film and then we were suddenly landing, great way to kill an 8 hour flight at least.
So that's when it went down hill..... When I went to the States last time (2005) they tried not to let me in cos the time beofre when I went (2002) when I left they forgot to rip out the visa bit in my passport so accoridng to their records I had lived illegally in the States form 2002 to 2005, well this time they had obviously tracked my passport number to the flight I was on, and as soon as I got off the plane they were on me, "come with me please ma'am" type thing, wisked off and passport taken off me etc.
Very scary until they realised their mistake as, thank God, there were lots of other stamps in my passport from other trips taken in between! Phew. Still, not impressed, bloody Yanks. They didn't finished off the interigation with their usual "have a nice day" tho - that would have really pissed me off.
So, made it to the hotel, pottered aorund New York for the evening and went to bed fairly early NY time as I think I had actually been up for 24 hours! Opps.
