Here's wishing our favorite NZ girl a safe arrival this Thursday July 10 and warm welcome to the United States ! Hope the journey was safe and relatively uncomplicated !
(Do you have to learn how to drive on the "wrong" side of the street, now ?)

Cheers

Welcome! Now you can complain about the damn foreigners in other countries that refuse to do whatever we say when our "president" demands that they do his bidding......

Ha!

Please let us know that you have arrived safely...

awwww guys!!!

my eyes got a bit teary when i saw this thread... but i'm in this kind of totally fucked up state right now, where i've had to say goodbye to quite a few people but i haven't cried (except saying goodbye to my housemate and her dog), and i probably should because i feel really highly strung right now... but i just can't seem to let it out properly! so the littlest things are making me feel weepy.

i'm on the cusp of the biggest, weirdest, awesomest, life-changing event i've ever experienced, but the whole thing feels completely surreal.

counting down the hours now: i get on a plane to auckland at about 3pm tomorrow, then on a plane to san francisco at 7.30pm (midnight california time), and then i arrive midday thursday.

about 33.5 hours to go!

Ruby; It is nice to hear we are getting a clean immigrant who can read and write the language better than the rest of us. A big welcome from the dog and me.
Have a safe and comfortable journey.

Many people in India seem to speak the language better than the average American, probably from the colonization and being taught the Queen's English, but still....

Plus, the Japanese speak it beautifully.

p.s. Rubyred, now you will need to get used to most people having NO idea that NZ is a country or where is it. NZ may be isolated geographically, but we are isolated in our thinking that the world ends at the US border and that every other country is inferior and that they are all the same.... Sorry to be a downer. Welcome to the US!

Hey now, let's all take a step back here. Deep breath.

The USA rocks, baby! I've never been anywhere nicer. And didn't we just have a thread about how nice the hillbillies in Minnesota could be? Come on.

Well, there are no hills in Minnesota, otherwise...

America is a fucking great place. Best A number 1, mister!

Just don't touch any of the politicians and you'll be fine.

You can drink the water from the tap. Don't let all those little plastic water bottles fool you.

Stay off the side streets and keep your wallet in your front pocket.

Don't ever let anyone named "Manny," "Skipper," "Boss" or "Jordan" hold your passport. Always keep that in a safe place.

That's it. Those are all the rules.

You've been here for an hour so you must have cleared customs. I hope the strip search wasn't too bad.;) You're either with us or you're with the New Zealand terrorists. Welcome to the land of fruits and nuts-California. It only gets better from here.:):):):):)
