    own.  Bet if you asked 10 people on the street, they would say it was an American overseas acting like a jerk and have no clue there was a book.

    And we are UGLY.  Have you seen the clothes we wear?  Comfort is a wonderful thing - but please, please try to cover all that flesh!  

    Your poor son.  A shame - there is so much to see in London.  He will probably never take another guided tour.  Was it a school thing?

    And in my opinion, the best fish and chips are found in Glasgow at the Blue Lagoon - the one on Argyll Street behind the central train station. They really know their GREASE there!   :)

        I am 200 miles from the nearest body of salt water, the Gulf of California, IN Mexico, on the other side of what I think of as the 'badlands' (re: drug cartels).

        Real fish and chips are only a pipe dream here, so this is easily classed as unusual and cruel punishment under the Constitution. I shall be seeking Federal judicial assistance on this matter forthwith, and my attorneys will be contacting you with regards to our intended action.

        Sob. They look so good. :(
