And a good evening to you from across the Pond after another GREAT DAY in the mother country. Today was short, but no complaints, as it was terrific. For starters, Sammy continued in his quest on the Land's End challenge, logging 9K (5.6 miles) in ~45 minutes running through Regent's Park. It was a PERFECT day to run - cool temperature, almost no wind, a blisteringly blue sky, and the sun shining. Regent's Park was alive with people, and the leaves have certainly started to change. It was beautiful running past all the colors (I'll say it again - I LOVE Polarized lenses), and it was truly a special run. To top it off, there was a sculpture and art exhibit going on in the park, so I got a chance to run past that.
On the reading front, Muffin Puffin continued her march through the Millennium Trilogy - she's only got 100 pages to go! For my part, I found another winner - "Shutter Island." I read this thing in a weekend, and I must confess that I was really impressed. I'll definitely pick up "The Given Day" and "Gone, Baby Gone," as this guy spins a good yard. The next book up is TBD, but I'll make a decision before I hit the bike tomorrow.
Speaking of Muffin Puffin, she was an ANIMAL on Facebook today, creating 5 new photo albums. Thanks, baby pie!
Dinner (and truly our only meal of the day) was (where else) the DOOT, BABY!!!!! Team Taylor went back to basics, ordering Sag Paneer, Shai Gosht Tava, and Lamb Ceylon (which was SMOKIN' - Price, this WAS Geiger counter style). We were the only cats in there, so a 4:1 server to table ratio ensured we had everything we needed (after asking twice, of course).
It was then back to casa de Taylor, where we sat around watching American Football on channelsurfing.net. Seriously - WHAT IS GOING ON WITH BRADY'S MULLET? Are people officially calling him Mullet Cutter now (Ditty - that was for you)? Talk about utter DONKEY TRASH hairstyles (and the fact that they won makes it worse).
Other than that, not a whole lot else to report. The week begins anew, so as Dad would say: "Let's get up and get after it!"
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
