The Immigrants Return!

I'm back from my 2.5 week sojourn to the mother country (England), and I'm just now surfing my mail, recovering from jet lag, and catching up on all the gossip I missed in the last few weeks! Hope you are all well and happy...

I'm sure I'm going to have a flurry of updating activity here at LFM, so hang on to your RSS feeds!

Things I learned while in England:
  • Your iPod can double as a mirror when sitting in a cramped airplane seat.
  • Drinks of any kind in England come in two sizes: shot glass, or double shot glass.
  • Showers in England come in two sizes: packing crate, or deluxe packing crate.
  • Driving on narrow English side streets. Not hot.
  • People who park in said narrow English side streets. Decidedly not hot.
  • Fish and chips, curry and lamb ALL taste better on that side of the pond.
  • Shandys rule.
  • Nikes are a must.
  • Wales is more beautiful than I ever imagined.
  • It isn't possible to go back in time like Claire did in Outlander just by closing your eyes and picturing Jamie while standing in front of Stonehenge. I know. I tried.
  • I could spend all day in Sainsbury's.
  • The London Eye is, like, really tall. But really cool. *big proud grin*
  • It annoys my dad when I take too many pictures.
  • Listening to Nine Inch Nails while sitting on the beach smoking a surreptitious cigarette rocks.
  • Cake on your birthday makes all the difference.
  • Motorways - yes, you can go 90, but there sure as hell isn't somewhere to stop to pee or get a big honkin' coke for the road.
  • My dad and I can vacation for 2.5 weeks without death or dismemberment. Cool. :-)
Pictures, summaries and tales of the trip will be forthcoming...I promise...
