I'm leaving for Hungary in the wee hours of the morning. Yippee!! I will post pics upon my return.

On another note, Davidson College, my little Alma Mater, has advanced to the Elite 8 in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. I love the fact that my old school is getting so much press and doing so well against schools whose enrollments are exponentially higher (and let's be honest...whose players' academic achievement is most likely much lower). Yes, indeed, I am proud to be a Wildcat!

I Got a Geetar

Before I came to London, I sold off all of my music gear. Guitar, bass, mini amp, cases, you name it. Knowing that I'd probably want to pick up playing again while I was in the UK, I set aside money to get a guitar while I was here. I didn't anticipate that I would miss having my own guitar around as much as I did. So I got one on ebay. It's an Alvarez, one of my favorite manufacturers. I've lost all of my callouses in the months since I sold my stuff, so I have to make it a point to play a little bit every day. I also need to get a stand for it so that I never have to lean it in the corner like it is in this picture. I'll probably do that this weekend. Yay!

In other news, my friend Dan is coming to visit for a few days before he heads off to Paris for a 3 month cooking course. I haven't seen him in years, but I hear his beard is growing nicely (he's reveling in the fact that he no longer has to shave everyday now that he is officially out of the army).

UK in the UK

Uncle Ken came into the big city to see me yesterday. We met at the entrance to Central St Martin's, walked to the British Museum, took the bus down to the National Gallery, stopped into an art supply store, and went for lunch at the Stockpot. We even managed to take a quick picture where he has his eyes open (nevermind the fact that you can see up my nostrils):

Super French Picnic

Last night, I went to my classmate Marilou's flat for a "Super French Picnic". She went home to France last weekend, and returned with 6 bottles of red wine, all kinds of cheese, and a few recipes (which in Marilouspeak sounds like "receeps") which Subi and I helped to cook. Onion pie, tomato, basil, & mozzarella pie, salmon and broccoli pie, and a few desserts. About 15 of my classmates were there, and a good time was had by all. Here are a few pics:
