I think I spelled it wrong but I'm too lazy to check...

I've done a few things lately..


I finally met Iain! He's a cute little teddy bear! Except this was some political debate and he got a little feisty at times. In addition, the way he describes British conservatism makes me think I'm a Tory.


Today I put together a nightstand dresser from IKEA. I kept remember how Alex hates IKEA so I was expecting the worst. It turned out quite nicely. The instructions were just confusing because the parts weren't labeled. Here is hoping that building the IKEA bookshelf and big dresser go as well.

Got stranded in Blackpool on the last night of the Illuminations. Rode my first English train. I don't understand why the compartments are split in with the seats facing each other. I feel like there should be someone giving a speech in the middle.

Visited the Chatsworth house this weekend. I feel that combining Christian, Greek, Egyptian, and contemporary arts in one room may be a bit much in terms of over decoration. I think the Christmas decorations hide a bit of that weirdness. In addition, using red light is not xmasy - it is Halloween-y even if you put Christmas trees in the same room (as Greek/Roman statues and busts).

My last ex looks exactly like the 6th Duke of Deveonshire - not something you want to see when you walk into an exhibition and see his face up everywhere.

Overll, the place was a great visit through really overpriced.

really? Iain made it sound like a Tory would be a centrist in the US.

Zmama - sorry. I thought you were making fun. :( I sometimes wonderful if everyone things I'm so silly by being caught up in discovering England and relating things that you all probably know.

That said, put some foam padding on my squeeky mattress. It still squeeks ( :( ) but.. it is sooo comfy!

I was slightly joking, in reality the Conservative party like all the major parties here covers a fairly broad spectrum of beliefs.

But Moses supposes erroneously;
For nobody’s toeses are posies of roses,
As Moses supposes his toeses to be.
