Guess who Katy and I are off to meet in about fifty minutes. That’s right – the young riothero himself – currently staying in a hotel in Paddington. It’s a pity the weather is so bad at the moment, though – he’s really going to get the wrong idea about the UK. Anyway – let’s see what he thinks of London so far?
“Harrumph! The English has no consideration for the 4th of July!”
I don’t think we really need to go into too much detail about why that is a pretty weird thing to say. I mean, much as it would be cool to celebrate the UK finally disposing of it’s wayward nephew [Rupture agrees], it is after all the celebration of America’s independance from this “old country”. Actually I got into another mood with America after watching Chicken Run and U-571 and realising that American media is all about self-congratulation, while UK media is all about self-deprecation, and that some Americans don’t get that our media is no more representing the truth of our country than theirs represents the truth of the good ole USA.
Actually really looking forward to seeing Mark. I’m a bit concerned that I have a stomping headache and am all stinky and smelly and that he’s going to look at me as if I fell from Planet Kak. Still, we shall see what we shall see… Oh, and apparently Vance will be there as well!
