Planning ahead

By the time you read this we'll be across the big pond and will have already chowed down on our first traditional fry up. My bad cholesterol will have started the slow, steady ascent that will peak in exactly two weeks when my head will explode and cooking oil will shoot out of my ears.

Also, I will be having the first of 14 consecutive bad hair days. My American hair appliances and English electricity do not play nicely together and I've never mastered the use of my English substitutes (the daily rain shower doesn't help matters either). People here assume I fix my hair each morning not with a comb and brush, but by sticking a fork in an electrical outlet.

Also, I'll be showing the first sign of microchip withdrawal. I won't have access to my laptop, or the internet, or my cell phone, or any other of my favorite technologies for fourteen whole days. This might kill me. Kids, don't try this at home--leave it to us trained professionals.

On the bright side, I have planned ahead to keep you amused while I'm away. I hauled out of bed especially early the week before we left to do some advance blog work just to keep you entertained while I'm away goofing off.

So tally ho for now and we'll see you tomorrow.

  1. OMGOSH. This sounds like Hawaii where EVERY day is a bad hair day. I took not one decent photo the whole time. I never knew this about England. I might not be able to go. But I hope YOU'RE having a grand time!
