That Summer Feeling



Drove down to Liverpool and back today for a meeting, a round trip of 422 miles. Ipod and sunglasses all the way.

Came home, walked out to the Loch with L & L for a bite to eat. M is at a friend's for a sleepover, when did all these Americanisms take hold?  In my day it was "staying over at such and such's bit".

The sun is still out and I'm just about to pour a large gin.

There really is only one track to play.

Have a good weekend people.

At the risk of stating the bleedin' obvious, that's a hell of a lot of driving.

Americanisms are everywhere aren't they? Apparently the young folk over here have school proms now at the end of term, which I believe are a bit like school discos only with added limousine rides and dressing up like guests at Barbie and Ken's wedding party or something. *shudder*

It was a lot of driving Kippers, but I figured the amount of time sitting at an airport would be about the same and at least getting home on a Friday was in my own hands.

I fucking hate limos. It's like the kids these days have whole heartedly endorsed all of the bits out of John Hughes films that our generation despised and that the characters were rebelling against.
Ducky would be crying into his juice box!

True, true. The ironic thing is, the American kids in those old John Hughes films were all running around listening to British music and pinning big union flags on their bedroom walls. How times change!

We all live in Sunnyville these days. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition

At least you made it back from the 'Pool intact. I love the way you casually toss into the conversation that you "walked out to the loch". Lucky bastard.

drew said...

It's not a big loch, Nolan but yes, sometimes we tend to take things like this for granted.

Drew, I wanted to thank you for the Jonathan, which I have never heard before and absolutely love. So much fab music I do not yet know - that is a very good thing.

We aim to please Mr H. It is one of my favourites.
