See, I am a bad bad blogger this week. And next week there will be no blog entries. Who will fill this void of epic proportions? Should I have tryouts for a guest blogger? Can I just post my five favorite Jon Stewart clips? Can I keep talking about The Bachelorette? Advice please.
It’s not exciting news, but I do think you should know there is a tube strike. Transportation strikes are fun to talk about, no? Unless you live in a place where you have a car. And then you are destroying the environment. But here everyone gets to tell their war stories about walking for a long time and not being able to find a taxi. And you have to pretend to be interested each time someone tells their story. Because you want everyone to listen to yours too. Preemptive fake concern. I love it.
Also, I need someone to tell me where English people buy napkins? I have gotten to the point where I am actually anxious when I need napkins. My grocery store only sells fancy ones. Does everyone use cloth? Are they such delicate eaters here with the knife-and-fork-and-never-using-their-fingers that no one needs a napkin? What did I miss? It’s sort of killing me slowly.
