You people are rubbish at clue games lol.

Yesterday I booked my flight to go to England for Christmas :) The prices are really cheap, got my ticket on Virgin Atlantic for $536.95. I paid $936.95 for my flight in June - but that's the busy season. So we're really happy! The big change is, and if any of you paid enough attention to my countdown you would have noticed that it is 4 days sooner, I'm arriving on the 14th of Dec at 6:55am (my usual flight) lol. Pete'll be working so Lin will pick me up. I'm not disappointed by that at all, it'll give me all day to unpack and shower and feel human before gets home :) I do feel bad that I'll miss my niece and nephew's birthday (Dec 17th) but they're only turning 2 and next year Pete'll probably be here for Christmas so we'll be able to be here with them when they turn 3 :)

Today has been SUPER BUSY. I have three things due in Literary Criticism tomorrow - Annotated Bibliography, Abstract, and my group is presenting on Foucault. Fun stuff.

Foucault,,, did you read the AMAZING book "Foucault's Pendulum", by Umebrto Eco? It came out about 14 years ago, and I've read it about 6 times,, what a book, and what an incredible writer!
have a great time in old blighty Christmas time! good deal on the tickets, too!
i know your an old blighty vet, but dress up warmly southern girl!
.... i remember being absolutely caught off guard by that charming English " freezing fog" what a CURSE! I dont know if they have it down in Essex, but oy gevalt, up north in the country, its NASTY STUFF! and how do brits sit on the toilet at late at night once the heatings off , in December? i expected penguins to waddle by as i did my business.
actually its so hot here- STILL -id kill for form freezing fog.
has Lin made her Christmas pud yet? David's mother makes it August -September... i was never brave enough to try it,, i know its preserved in rum and all, but i cant eat 5 month old cake... ..lol
my in-laws are coming for a visit in two weeks,, yay!

Hi Lizzy!

Hmm I dunno if Lin has made her Christmas pudding yet. I hate the stuff, and I only think Tony and Lin's mum really like it ;)

I know it'll be cold over there, and I'm kinda looking forward to it...it's not very bad in Essex but I'm sure its a bit colder in the North :)
