Julie asked if anything the menu at Casear's Palace was gluten free. The waiter said no, but went to double check with the chef anyway. He came back and told us how he'd just learnt all about kosher food, and how it has to be blessed, and unfortunately the chef couldn't do that for Julie. Yes, gluten free = kosher! Julie is now Jewish!!
I was stopped for (another) additional security check at Las Vegas airport. The guy looked at my i.d and saw that I was from Australia. Another guy approached, having heard Australia, and said "that's just beside Texas isn't it?" He was serious.
