I've been in Texas a week! It only feels like a couple of days.

I picked up a couple of bike lights I ordered from REI yesterday. They worked out at around half the price they would cost in the UK (doesn't everything over here?).

Also got some new boots. Chris was getting some and as they looked pretty tough (cool) and worked out at half what I paid for my last pair... I couldn't resist some as well. Apparently they are "9 Inch Stealth SWAT Military Boots" I just hope nobody asks me to storm any buildings on account of wearing SWAT boots. Not sure what "stealth" means in regards to footwear, I guess they don't squeak... or they don't show up on radar.  

It now seems my recurring nightmares don't involve premature burial or monsters... Now I have 'missing my connecting flight due to being held up by immigration' nightmares. Well they do say change is as good as a rest.

I think I'll try and meet Ari for lunch as she's at work today.

Take it down (it twists off) and pull the batteries out. Make a note of the numbers... email me the numbers and how many there are and I'll order some on line. Try not to burn flat down while it's out of action ;-)

Post usually very good.

I thought the batteries were accessible from the back without a screwdriver. I seem to remember there being a tab you pull?

Oh and I guess the reason it made a loud noise is because you touched the test button.

If you need screwdriver there is a leatherman in the top kitchen draw.

If it was the heels that were 9 inchs... that would indeed be the case.
