Knock, Knock

I'm getting my bed today. It was supposed to arrive between 10am-2pm, so when I heard a knock on the door earlier this morning, I thought, "Oh, good! My bed is here". Instead, I opened the door to find 2 women standing on my doorstep. Jevhovah's Witnesses. Yes, they're everywhere. They gave me a booklet called "Awake". The headline was, "Will We Ever Be Free of Crime?" and in the bottom corner, "Also: Does God Forgive Serious Sins? page10". Of course, I took their literature so that I could use it for fodder of some kind. Don't know what exactly, but I'm sure it will be hilarious, whatever it is. When they asked me if I think that we will ever be free of crime, I said, "I don't know. I'm from the US."

Anyway, the bed to going to be late. I know this because the Argos Delivery guy actually called me to tell me that it was going to be around 2:30 before he got here. Do you believe that? I'm only paying £4.95 for my double bed to be delivered, and I even get a courtesy phone call. Gotta love it.

Your flat looks awesome. You have a bed and linens, and now some J.W. friends. Awe-some! So I'm curious: how did your new friends respond to your being from Bush-crime-land?

There's a Brit in our english dept who is a creative writing professor. He is a giant bald man and wears a kilt every day and claims there's never anything underneath.

I'm reading a humongous British novel called Deerbrook from the 1830s. I cannot see you or annie running around in 1830s English estates hunting for husbands ... such a funny thought!
