Brokeback Mountain

I know, I know, I am behind, but it's not totally my fault; "Brokeback Mountain" wasn't released here in the Third World until into January, so I couldn't see it when most of you did.  But I did finally see it last night and it was beautiful.  I fell asleep thinking about it and woke up thinking about it.  If, and this doesn't seem possible, you are even more of a pariah than I and haven't seen it yet, definitely make the effort to catch it in the cinema.  You don't want to miss out and Ang Lee needs the support. (Hey, I paid £11.50, $20.50, to see it, so no whining about $9!)

Cheers,
Shaun

A little bluegrass in London

Recently heard at Rosebery Court:

"My slappin' arm's on the mend so my wife's been acting up again."

Got my new tattoo today.  Love it.

Xo,
Shaun

Ouch

Todd's in town for the weekend, yay!

We had a good time out in Soho and at Fiction last night, but this morning OH MY GOD.  I had the absolute worst alcohol headache I've ever had.  It hurt so, so bad.  And I don't understand.  All I had from 6pm - 4am was wine then beer then vodka; it's not like I did something silly and mixed with water or anything.

I think I am just out of shape.  Five months away from my alcoholic friends and I'm a wreck.  Russ is coming to visit in April -- I gotta shape up!

Befuddled

This is something I never thought I would say, and I am not even sure what it might mean.
 
I have started to like Marmite.
 
As shocked as you are,
Shaun

Olde London Towne

Fell in love with London all over again tonight...

- a pub from 1546 (imagine, the people drinking there when it opened [during Elizabeth I's reign] could have been talking about this new, exciting continent discovered within their lifetimes called America)

- a church from the 1200s (with a private cocktail party in the basement and a vacant main chamber; we were the only people there to see it [also, it was the first catholic church in England])

- super cool, trendy, modern martini/hookah bar next to Smithfield Market

- (also passing Trade & DTPM, though obviously we didn't go in)

all within 10 minutes of my front door.

Love it.

All my US friends (Niels, Schnookums & McGirr, and Todd, see you in a week, you've all been, but this still applies), come visit soon.  Love it here, but I miss you to bits.

Shaun

Happy 2006!

I was going to write something witty & clever and personally meaningful to say happy 2006, but I never got to it before the dinners and nights out hit.  So in its place, here are some cute, fluffy kitties.

Cheers,
Shaun




HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  Have a great 2006.......

 


2005 Has sped by

Now, we need to face 2006

There may be risks involved

We may need to face roadblocks

So stay alert

Share time with friends

Jump over obstacles

With care

And caution

Face challenges

Remember to laugh

Cooperate

Discover

Make new friends

Above all...be ready for adventure

Stick together

And you will be able to go far


Very far.....

Well, not quite that far....

Always take time to smell the flowers

Don't forget to relax and enjoy

And never forget to love those dearest to you
