And a good evening to you from across the globe after another GREAT DAY in the Lion City. HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!!! You'll notice that Team Taylor is ROCKIN' the Green - not just the clothes, but also the beer. For those ardent blog followers, you'll know where we were tonight - RED DOT, BABY!!!!
It's truly been a great day, and in preparation for the Hitman's visit next week, I'm doing what I can to drive my tolerance up quickly. Hitman - I think you should take it as a testament to how excited I am for your visit that I threw back a whopping THREE WHOLE PINTS tonight. When you consider Muffin Puffin did the same (bringing us to $70 spent on beer this evening), I think you should take it as a compliment.
In other news, today was the coolest day in the Sing yet, with temperatures reaching a frigid 77 Fahrenheit. It was actually below 75% humidity for the first time as well, and I figured folks would be out in parkas and beanies. It was just a normal day, however, save for Sammy the Bull soaking up the "cool weather" prior to pick-up this morning.
Other than that, not a whole lot else to report. Lunch was Subway, and dinner was Red Dot, where we watched the International Cricket Cup Group B match-up between England and the West Indies. Seriously, I have really, REALLY tried to get into Cricket, but I have no lie to tell - IT IS UTTER DONKEY TRASH TASTIC. SERENITY NOW!!!! England was up when I left, and the only cat in the whole joint watching the match was this cat who'd been nursing a HALF PINT since before we got there. Seriously - We spent 2 hours at this place, and he'd consumed about 1/2 of that beer - THAT'S A QUARTER PINT. I wanted to smack this guy upside the head and tell him to order a Coke next time.
I realize it's short, but hey - it's actually before 11 PM for a change, and Team Taylor's gonna read a bit and then hit the sack. Mom - still no Kindle, but I'm sure that it's in flight. It's probably stuck in customs right now, as they have to check any and all packages destined for "Expat Caning Candidate #1" - I know that you're so proud.
1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NANNY!!!!! Trust me - 79 is the new 25 - you're gonna LOVE it.
2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOB!!!! Here's hoping you and Jan paint the town, ending up at the Breakfast Club at 3 AM.
3. CONGRATS, MICHELLE BURCHAM!!!! SO excited for you about the new addition. VERY cool.
4. Lovely Lynda - tonight's an Amarula night - to you goes all the credit for introducing us to this ambrosia.
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
