    I did not. *SHAME* I thought for sure there'd be Jaffas at the airport, but there weren't! I found lots of Cadbury's and other stuff, but no Jaffas! Yarg!!!! I am sorry. I have failed. I shall try to find them online.

    - Kai, extremely penitent

    P.S. And the worst was I spent out all my NZ cash on things at the airport (except Jaffas, of course) trying to get rid of it all. I succeeded, got into line to go through security and...DOH! There's a charge to LEAVE THE COUNTRY! Never been in a country that had that before, so I had no idea. Never had that in Europe! So, then I was sent into exile, back to the bank in the main terminal, in order to pay the $25 NZ I needed to pay so I could go home!

    [face_hypnotized] You HAD TO PAY to leave NZ????

    Wow, what a great scam they have going. "You are welcome to come visit, but you have to pay to leave."

    Ok, there has got to be a story in there somewhere. [face_laugh]

    But you know we would have taken up a collection and bailed you out if we had to. ;)

    What?!?! Master Frodo, that's crazier than giving Gollum the ring for safe-keeping while you use the loo!

    I didn't have to pay to leave Ireland. I actually brought back some of the change I had just to remember it. Did you get to do the whole tax-free thing at least?

    Heh, paying to leave. It's like Vegas kind of, you get the electric pedway that brings you in off the street into the casino, but when you leave you get Bubba pointing to the door, "Find yer own way, chief"

    And wheres is the pictueses, we wants them, ooooh we wants them.

    Now now, let's not be hasty. We just need to pull off a bank heist or something...

    Actually, ahem, no offense, but IF I get the chance to go to London, the LAST thing I'll be doing is going to a Star Wars convention. I can get the goodies at CIV or by the "we overstocked" sale on starwars.com like with CIII (insert irate face here), and at CIII I spent too much time in line and waiting around and not enough SEEING and having fun.

    And with all that history and scenic locations near by, and a whole 'nother Disney park just a train ride away, nah.

    And it's the top of the tourist season to boot, double bleh, not my cup o' tea.

    So there.

    :p

    Besides next trip out of state is hopefully to WDW. We couldn't go for our 20th as we bought a house, but we're still chompin' at the bit to go back.
