Oh yeah, I forgot a few things the other day.
First, a few of you seemed curious that Jonah couldn’t get UK citizenship by being born here. My sentiments exactly. I tried to make sense of the official policy on-line and at some point it became pretty clear that because his American parents are on restricted visas (end date, no recourse to public funds etc), he would only be American. Alas. http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/eligibility/children/britishcitizen/borninuk/
Monday as I was getting us lost on the way to Abbey Road, we happened upon a group of people, photographers and security all waiting by a bus. Our celebrity antennae immediately went up and we wondered aloud what celebrity we were going to see. Exciting! Then someone said it was the Australian cricket team and we were like, Really? SNOOZE CITY.
Wow, wrong reaction. Some drunk old English people starting physically accosting Sandy. “Don’tcha know, it’s like your Superbowl?” they said derisively poking her. One woman was trembling and said she had waited 75 years to see England beat Australia in the Ashes series. She was frail and to tell you the truth, I am sorry for her victory as she may simply keel over tomorrow- having nothing left to live for. I have been meaning to go to Lord’s so now I can say I saw the back entrance. I did read Netherland. Does that count?
