Something Fo... Hang On, It's Only Wednesday!

Tomorrow, I am leaving The World’s Wettest Country* and going on my holidays to America to visit my brother and his new(ish) bride (I nearly wrote ‘latest’ just then!) who, he reliably informs me, live in the “constant blistering heat” of Connecticut. Near New York. Aye right!

If I get time, I’ll try and update Dave with all the latest movers and shakers from what is, let’s face it, the cultural capital of the world but free time may be sparse what with all the bloody shopping I’ve committed to doing.

Already I’m importing half a ton of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate to the newly(ish)-weds (‘cause Hershey’s “is p#sh” apparently) and have orders to bring back copious supplies of eye liner and lip gloss. So if you’re reading this and thinking, “Oooh, I could just get Neil to pick up the latest Nike Air Max Latte Making Lightsaber,” then speak up now. Similarly, if you’re “chilling” there in your “barker lounge” in your “yard” just by the “sidewalk” outside your “apartment” and you realise you’re running short of irn-bru, let me know and I’ll pack up a shipment. Those whom I anticipate may be in need include…

Kell – whisky?
Lesley - sunshine?
Morven – more Jelly Belly beans?
Donald – new Fender Jazz bass?
Wee Man – transatlantic knee surgery?
Bruce – Soccer For Dummies?
He Who Shall Not Be Named - Porn?
Dave – it was Rimmel eyeliner, right?

What a minute, the sun is blazing away outside...

Anyway, I would ask you to bring back some Apple Mac goodies but as the Glasgow store opens on Saturday.. meh.. whats the point?

The Apple Store is right across from Starbucks, you know, just up from TGI Fridays.

And they say globalisation is killing the world..

Have a fundabbydozy time and yes, if you could send a bit of sunshine that would be nice.

Thank you for accepting your shopping mission, you will be rewarded on return.

Should you wish anything from where I am going, text me.

The same T's and C's apply obviously.

Soaps, Just got up after my return from Croatia, alovel;y country spoiled only by too many "Fat Naked & Proud Germans".

I don't wish to sound pedantic but a Fender 51/53 Precision, aka Telebass / Telecaster bass would be nice.

Good stuff Edge - have a great time. I too am of on holiday this weekend so you can have a break from the Dave updates. Off to Croatia whereby I will seemingly encounter Fat Naked & Proud Germans. Doh!

Edge - if tehe surgery isn't available just get me those magnificent "Forrest Gump" calipers. Sparks will (quite literally) fly when I try the now infamous, but quite tricky, shuffle.

Gordon - Please tell me you're not going to queue early to get a free t-shirt? But if so, grab me a large!

Lesley - I will and I will.

Anon - Rewarded? Bella, bella!

DC - Sounds like you'd've fitted right in.

Pooch - Hope you and the "girlfriend" have a great time.

Wee Man - New England is one part of the States yet to experience "the shuffle". Consider that omission rectified.

to be honest... (now that I've been on my unlocking potential course I can say that)... you can leave the jelly bellys in NY - i only said I really REALLY liked then as I was the new girl and didn't want you all to speak about me - well, any more than you were already! Nice big fat toblerone wouldn't be sneezed at though! Have a lovely time and make sure you leave plenty room in your suitcase for your giant Marl.lghts!

Bye bye Neil. Have a nice time! Bring us back something nice.

Well, damn. I should have checked in sooner! My timing has been off for weeks.

I think to be fair, you should taunt me with being just a few miles away with a Highland Park 12, even if you weren't. That would show me!

Or, if you feel like trying a different kind of cultural center, you can come to Omaha. Well, it's the center of the country, anyway. Actually, it's kind of an oasis in the center of nothing. Hm. That's not very convincing, is it?

Hope you have a great trip.

Is it too late to have a couple of road bikes and a MacBook Pro added to your shopping list? ;-)
