And a good evening to you from across the Pond after another GREAT DAY in the Mother Country. Honestly, today was better than great - it was PERFECT. Nothing too fancy, just a day where I can truly say I enjoyed every minute of it - minus the hangover this morning, of course.
For starters, I got a seat after just one stop on the Tube, and I got 20 solid minutes to read my book ("The World Is Flat"- shout out to Nic "Walmart Pimp" Patel on that one). Next up, my coffee was prepared correctly for the first time in almost a week (but to Starbucks credit, they do always correct it without any fuss). Third, I actually remembered a yogurt, so I wasn't out any money in our canteen (which I've now decided is more expensive than a steak dinner at Ruth's Chris).
Lunch was EXCELLENT, as Taylor and Morgan made our way to...wait for it...wait for it -NANDO'S, BABY!!!! But the BETTER news is that there's a new one right by the office, and it is UBER POSH PUMA Seriously - real leather seated, unfinished warehouse ceiling, and GREAT food. I opted for the extra hot quarter chicken with 3 additional wings, creamy mash, and spicy rice. Can someone say SO GUUUUUUUUUUUUUD (peppy cheekies).
After lunch was a very productive series of calls, and then I went in for my third day of "Sammy Circuit Training." Today was the best day yet - 20km on the bike (36 min), a 5K run (26 min), 5 minutes on the Versaclimber (Holy @#$@ that thing is tiring), and then sit-ups. Suffice it to say, I will sleep GOOD tonight.
I got home, had a great meal courtesy of muffin (who swam 2600 tonight), and we even managed an AFD! All in all, you can't draw up a work day better than that. Livin' the dream!
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
