I reckon you have either been abducted by aliens or you're not really in the US at all but hibernating in a Bornean cave waiting for the latest batch of bats to appear-why else would we have to wait so long for any signs of life?
I can't help but notice in your Facebook pictures you appear to be doing quite a lot of eating. I'm eagerly awaiting the Channel 4 trailers for the upcoming documentary, 'Supersize My Bodyshock: Ten Ton Traveller', charting the story of how the appetite and non-stop consumption of one young girl from Aylesbury exacerbated a global food crisis, sparked Zimbabwean style inflation on wheat and dairy products and sealed the deal on US recession.
Perhaps inbetween monster sized helpings of chocolate and butterscotch pie, preferably before your parents have to sell their home to cover the cost of the transatlantic chinook airlift required to bring you home, and maybe before your hands swell up to such a degree that the blood supply to your fingers is cut off, you would care to furnish the online community with another blog. x
Hancock, The last few blogs have been brill!! Great photo's too! Sp seems like a really lovely person, I'm glad you met him and I hope you found a way to keep in touch. We had a good laugh at work when we saw the bar in the petrol station, that sounds like a crazy night out!! Don't think I'll be raving down at the local Shell garage anytime soon though. The 'killing field' looked just awful, it must have been really upsetting.
London's pretty wet at the moment, but things are ticking along nicely. Sailing is good fun, although the whole capsizing thing is a little scary!! Just finished giving my first lecture on colour & light, the students really grilled me, but I got through it in one piece, thank God!! Hope your looking forward to your hot date seeing Hot Chip in November and I'm glad to be of service with the Hollyoaks updates.
Thank you so much for your delightful blog entries, they've all been a great read! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures in the U.S.
Keep safe, have fun, miss you x x x
Katie - you are probably the only person I know who would be diappointed that rat was not available on the menu in Cambodia. Love it!
Also, shoe and belt awaiting you at your parent's house - I am in the process of tracking down the earrings.
Enjoy America - see you soon!

Well done Katie! A fantastic trip accomplished. I am so impressed with what you have done. Thank you so much for the blog. You have a real talent for writing, bringing everything to life, and conveying the atmosphere -- with your acerbic wit thrown in! See you soon.
I feel like I am obliged to shed a tear. You should go into travel writing. Or tour guiding. Or writing books for people who want to be tour guides. And you should take the photos for them too.
It's been a long time (long time). I shouldn't have left you (left you). Without a dope beat to step to (step to, step to, step to, step to). Freaky freaky. Baby girl.
OK, enough with the Aaliyah intro. Basically, I'm back. I could just as easily have gone for 'Everybody (Backstreets Back)' but all your worried talk of plane crashes conjured up images of R&B artists falling out of the sky.
Sorry for not being in touch just lately. I have now left behind the cocoon I knitted around myself a few weeks ago and have re-emerged a striking, vibrant butterfly. I am no longer the catterpillar you once knew.
Well, I just finished catching up on all the latest blogs I was behind on (almost double figures I think) and feel much more enriched and worldly wise for having done so, not to mention painfully regretful for having stupidly neglected to visit Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos when I was in that neck of the woods. What an idiot I am.I'm particularly gutted to have missing out on the water puppets. I have a very lucid vision of Punch and Judy each armed with a Super Soaker 1000 blasting each other to a watery grave.Please don't tell me if it's not that as I don't think I'll ever get over the disappointment that something as good as that will have to remain in my imagination.
I have started to really miss you lately.I was in Salford Tesco last week and I walked past the alcohol aisle and saw a promotion on vodka and suddenly I felt really gutted you weren't around! I felt almost tempted to crack open a bottle and have an honorary swig in your name (of course I would have put it back again in true scally fashion).
On a closely related note, a couple of weeks ago (again in Salford Tesco near the alcohol bit) a scally mother wearing regulation tracksuit with midriff on show went up to one of the shelf stackers and screeched, 'Av ya goh any Lambreeeeeneeee?' to which the shelf stacker responded in the affirmative, causing scally mother to shriek in delight, 'Av ya got different flAY-vohs?!?!?' Aaah, the simple pleasures of being a scally.
See you soon. x
AMAZING photos-especially the sunset at Halong Bay and the reclining Buddha. Really enjoyed the show!
Ps. ha ha. Ant mouth.
That was my favourite one yet! Along with one of the india ones where you took a paddle boat through the paddy fields. Honestly, I am absolutely awe struck after that read- amazing! Thank you. What day are you back exactly? I am excited to think that you will bein the same country as us all again soon :) xxx
Another fantastic bit of reading there Miss Hancock. All of the blog posts have been so interesting and great to read, Michael Palin really needs to watch his back!! xxx
REALLY enjoying the deluge of blogs--make good bedtime reading.Glad you'll now be the best dressed person in Manchester after your visit to Hoi An. Does that mean we can now actually throw out the mouldering mass of skanky T-shirts languishing on your shelves?
