I don't know how else to put this, but December really isn't tthe best time to visit England. It will be wet and cold and drab and miserable and wet and overcast. Did I mention wet? I dunno about you, but if I were a skater I'd sure want to skate in the least puddleous conditions.
Spring's bogged down for us. Rick, Candious and their boys are going to Philadelphia after uni lets out, I'm putting on a concert in February, I have a wedding sometimes in late spring/early summer (they haven't set a date
), we have a family reunion sometime in July (and family is extremely important to us) and in the times between, I have to work like a madman. I may even take summer courses, as I'm a few credits behind. Christmas holiday is the only good time for us. Besides, by that description, it sounds kind of like Philadelphia in winter and I love Philadelphia in the winter.
Besides, do you think we'd go to London just to skate?
I'm guessing London 5-0 has somthing to do with the fuzz, as Hawaii Five O was about cops or somthing?
Yeah. We use a nice assortment of terms for cops (pigs, fuzz, 5-0) and security guards (rent-a-cops, pseudo-cops), as we have to deal with them all the time.
Im sure whatever the time of year you will be accosted by several forumites. If it's cold, well we'll just have to find warm corners to lurk in and ambush you from. Im sure being nicely frozen will dull your reflexes enough that even the smallest forumites can look impressively speedy.
While reading that, I hear in my mind's ear Rick saying, "It's the cult! IT's the cult!"
There are some things you can't find over here, though. [...] Nothing that will actually impair your enjoyment of the place, because there are always numerous things that we don't have in the US to try.
That's what I'm thinking. I'd much rather experience things I can't get a hold of here in the States. I've no idea about Rick and Candious, though. I'm hoping they're open-minded.
I will be back in the US during that time, so try not to wreck the place while I'm gone.
We'll do our best.
You guys do know that Smirnoff etc is manufactured in the UK right?
Dude, I don't drink and I don't care where it's manufatured. I was just asking on behalf of the skinny goof I call a brother.
Are you planning on staying in London, how long for, or will you be moving about the UK?
I want to just bum around London, however Canious is doing most of the planning, as she's about a thousand times more oganized than me and Rick, so we'll have to see.
