And a good morning to you from across the Pond on a FANTASTIC Saturday. That's right, spirits are back up and high, and it's the WEEKEND to boot!
Last night was great. After work, we hung out with Brother Morgan (my favorite Welshman) and met a friend of his named Steve, who has a GREAT story. This guy was born in Houston (Go 'Stros), has parents from England, and lived the first 15 years of his life on an oil compound in Saudi Arabia. At the age of 15, he had his choice of boarding schools, and he ended up in...wait for it...wait for it...NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (Miller - do NOT waste your time on a Tazewell joke here)! Given that, we were fast friends. I took down 4 Honeydew's (don't worry Jason - it's the only Fuller's product I'm supporting!) with them at the Cat & Canary (let's face it - we might as well call that our local) before bidding them farewell.
Jenny and I were hungry at that point, and given the evening that Muffin Puffin had on Thursday (let's just say it was LATER THAN EXPECTED), we needed some food to properly soak up booze. Consequently, 10 minutes later we were at GBK - home of the "Rolls Royce" of burgers.
We both took down bleu cheese burgers, but I had the audacity to add chorizo to mine as well (yep - HEALTHY - and low carb). Add on two massive tubs of fries and garlic mayo/smoked chili mayo dipping sauce, and you've got a recipe for a GOOD night's sleep.
We hit the sack around 10 PM last night, and we had a good 12 hours of sack time - QUALITY.
Now it's off to walk the gloomy streets (seriously - we haven't even been able to discern a cloud in the last 6 days - it's just been a SHEET of gray) and take it easy. Gotta rest up for the NFL Conference Championships tomorrow! That being said, JT and I have an itinerary that should keep us all smiles and plenty busy (but you'll have to tune in tonight to hear all about it, of course).
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat later today!
Sam and Jenny
