I am in the US and already I have lost my cousin. Not...dramatically. She was going to meet me in the international arrivals lounge and here I sit and I cannot find her. So, alas, I think my San Fransico Sara plans have been dealt a deathly blow.

I am so dramatic when I am sleepy. Also I was talking to my step-daddy and the stupid phone cut me off :( And my mommy isn't home to complain to. HUMPH! And today is very windy up in the skies. Both flights have been like long earthquakes. In the air. In a tube.

I slept on the plane and totally snored. Buuahaha! I also watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes twice because once I chose it and then they showed it again on the long flight where they don't have on demand. So I got to notice all the parts they edited out. Like Draco Malfoy's Tom Felton's fate. It just went black. Glad I saw it with that bit in because...uhm...yeah. Also James Franco is tasty as is Frieda Pinto.

All I can see out the window here is smog and smart carts. But it's a magical land, yo. GOD the US depresses me so much. Seriously. And no one is here yet to make it better!

EDIT: The 'welcome to the US' video they showed in customs had all these Americans going "welcome to our country" and not one of them was Native American though they seemed to work every other race of people in there (so at least it wasn't white-washed which is something). You'd think, considering it's a welcome to our country video, they should like...put some of the people who were here first in the damn video. Just a thought.

as an American, I'm going to say they base it on the census. that, or the people who bitch about not being represented.

I say this as a person who has only met a few Native Americans, and they were all in Southwest Virginia.

Montana has a lot of reservations and I have Native American family members and friends so things like that just anger me. It was probably a video they didn't put any thought into at all. But it just seems like it would be nice to honour the people who were here first. I've gotten used to New Zealand, where Maori language is a national language and most signs are in both. I like that. It makes me really happy.

WELCOME TO THE COUNTRY WE STOLE, BITCHES!

You're in America, Laras! We miss you! We're watching Big Bang and Leonard is scared of birds like you! :D

I was so depressed as I went through customs. Augh. I hate being here when I am not distracted by awesome family! I was cringing at all the Americansplaining going on in the queue.

I MISS YOU TOO! And Leonard is clearly very smart.
