Our dirt bikes bring all the boys to the yard. Damn right, they're better than yours.

holy shit; we're in London.

It's pretty neat. Got in relatively late last night, had a hell of a time finding the hostel from Paddington station, but got to wander around in a pretty cool little neighbourhood along the way. Uh... the houses are all really close together here, so that's kinda cool. Walked by someone's front lawn today where a guy in black socks and sandals has weeding his garden with his dog. Struck me as kind of British, I guess. Slept in crazy late (almost 11am, which is guess is 4am back in Edmonton--but holy god were we tired. At least we seem to have had no problem adjusting to the time change).

Anyhow, the place is pretty nice; they aren't kidding when they say hotel rooms are small in Europe; there isn't even enough room to lay your suitcase on the floor, what with the bed and all. But yeah! I'm just waiting for Kristine to finish doing her hair, and then we're off to stop number one, Westminster Abbey, after which we're planning to walk up to Piccadilly Circus and see what all the commotion is about. We'll fill y'all in later, losers.

And to answer your question, Collin, yes, they do have switchblades in London--but here, they call them "pub food." Also, I just realized the double-quote key is shift-2. WHAT THE HELL?

Sir Reginald Chazzwad III,

Are you guys gonna be posting pictures, perhaps a picture in front of Big Ben? PLEAZEEE!>!>!??

By the way, the brits are apparently mad since a photographer in Edmonton asked the Queen "to show me some teeth." First of all, I guess you can't say that to the Queen, but also they're all still really sensitive about the lack of flouride in England , so keep all "teeth showing" catcalls to a minimum while you're there.

What else? The English Civil War was between Parliamentarians and Royalists from 1642 to 1651 and everyone in London wears burgers for hats. Just in case you were wondering...

My Liege,

PS: Big BEN!>!?!?!

I forgot about the quotation marks on the keyboards, but I guess it sort of makes sense. I believe they tend to use single quotation marks for their quotes in the UK, and only resort to double quotation marks for quotations inside of quotations. Therefore, doubles wouldn't be widely used, hence the obscure keyboard position. Of course, I could be totally wrong.

Wait'll you see the keyboards in France, though. Good luck with those.

Not sure where you're internetting from, but I always found the prices at EasyInternet to be pretty good, especially for the quality/upkeep of the machines. There are a bunch of them around London, and each location has a pile of terminals.

Uh, pip pip and all that.

PS Could you just look at the cider and think of me. I cry about cider sometimes. Japanese don't enjoy it.
