Yeah, this is way, WAY overdue...I apologize. This will be my last entry in this series for now, unless something MAJOR happens. 1/3 - Roast Pork Neck: If they hadn't told me it was neck, I wouldn't have known really. Quite hammy. 1/6 - Pork Knuckle: This was AWESOME. Think of the most succulent and … Continue reading Rhys’ New Foods List – January/February
Rhys: "It's 4,000 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses." Indi: "Hit it!" Talk to you all from Chicago!!
When I cross the border into Oklahoma on Sunday, February 21st it will have been 311 days since I’ve seen my home. My family. My friends. During that time, there is a lot about my home (and America in general) that I have missed…and some things I haven’t. With our flight to Chicago looming … Continue reading What I Miss (and Don’t)
Making friends has always been something that has come fairly natural to me. I'm easygoing, flexible, and nearly always in a good mood. I interest myself in the passions of others and have often found that just simply listening is often key to maintaining relationships.

I used to think the weather in Oklahoma was unpredictable and changing rapidly; while still true, England’s weather pendulum … Continue reading Studying Oxford
After a long night of playing Civilization IV on the PC with Matthew (help us, we’re addicted!) we awoke “refreshed” (read: at noon) and set out for our second major foray into ye olde London Town. We had an aggressive itinerary, and although we didn’t hit everything we wanted to, that’s okay…because we get some … Continue reading Tubin’ Around London
It’s been a few days since our last update. We haven’t forgotten about you all, honest! We are in money saving mode for a few reasons and are trying to stay around the local area here (Uxbridge, suburb of London) as much as possible. And that equates eating in and playing games with Matthew most … Continue reading Slow Days in London
Touching down at Heathrow was an instant change in atmosphere; whether it was just a perception change on MY part or an actual difference is unknown. It was refreshing to understand all of the aircraft announcements and read all the signs as we entered the airport. Once our bags were collected, we met up with … Continue reading Wotcha, dearie!
