Since I've been carrying a few extra pounds around lately, I've decided the best way to shed them is to head for London and spend the damned things.
I've lined up a few things that I feel I must see and do and otherwise plan on a lot of sightseeing and not worrying about how much everything costs. This is easy for me because when it comes to math, I've got the brains God gave a table. No ongoing conversions in my head everytime I buy something, no siree! I've already forgotten that 1 British pound = 2.26 Canadian dollars. Come what may.
One of the things the guide books seem to be very hush hush about is that if you play your cards right, it's possible to get an audience, no, not with the Queen or even Helen Mirren but with beloved cyberstalking icon Coaster Punchman and his brilliant accomplice Melinda June.
Currently on 'vacation', CP is no doubt selling all his Strategic Sales Secrets with MJ acting as his fence while avoiding stepping in swan poop in her badass boots. My job will be not to appear completely travel drunk after a 7+ hour overnight flight that begins this evening. If you have any questions for them, please feel free to post them and I'll be sure to pose them. The questions, not the people.
Special preparations for this trip - I watched Snakes on a Plane. What better way could there be to say I hate you! to yourself than by settling in with an entertaining, disgusting, and anxiety inducing pre-flight film than this? It was pretty enjoyable but I won't be remembering that if an overhead compartment should suddenly spring open; I'll be screaming, pushing old people down and looking for safe haven inside the drink cart. My other special preparations include thinking about packing. This could happen at any time so I'm ready for when it does.If I'm not able to get any blogging time in, rest assured I'll miss nearly each and every one of you. Cheerio! Or is it Cheery Oh! Either way, it's time for breakfast.
