Well, its been a while since we’ve talked, eh? Thought I would start it off with a bang: I’m flying to London tomorrow! Can you believe that? After all of the ups and all of the downs, I’m finally doing it. I can’t say I’m not scared, and I can’t say I’m not going to cry, but I can say that it will be an experience of a lifetime. With some of my closest friends scheduled to visit me in the April/May timeframe, I’m actually getting excited.
Obviously, there will be some administrative things to take care of upon arrival (bank accounts, living accommodations, etc), but I have no doubts that it will all fall into place.
If any of you think I’M brave, I just found out my good friend Barry (shout out, hey!) is jumping on a plane to Columbia for 2 weeks with some Columbian (?) guy he met at a bar. I’ve been told that 1. It’s not a gay thing and 2. Apparently this Columbian guy is a fantastic Salsa dancer – which is really bad news for my dear friend Barry, because we have been Salsa dancing together…and…ummm….well, I love him anyways 🙂
Anyhoo…my bags are packed. I am definitely ready to go. I even did the early on-line checkin, so there really is no backing out now.
ALSO, I heard England got some snow. I’d assume it’s all melted by now, BUT apparently it was a big deal. Some of my UK friend posting pictures of their cars drizzled lightly by a little snow. I heard that not only were snowshoe sales up in the UK but people were buying canned goods to prepare for hibernation. I don’t know if any of that is true, but all I have to say to that is…Grow some balls England! Wait until you spend 45 minutes cleaning your car of snow and then another 2 hours shoveling your driveway. And then you wonder why we all drive such big SUV’s and trucks here. Hahaha.
Watch out England, Canada is coming!
