As soon as I get to the bottom of this, I'll get the next plane.

So, um, yeah. London. Londonnnnnnn! Wow. Yeah. No, not so really. I'm in Greenford, Middlesex which really just sounds like one of those towns in which nothing happens until aliens or zombies or a murder occur. There's a highway or whatever the chaps call it, right next to the hotel. Everything is wet and overcast but the pub is fucking tops. I actually had a real order of fish and chips: full slab of one actual fish, perfectly done chips, and really good tartar sauce. I washed it all down with a two pints of York's Bitters and bam, I'm in a much better place both spiritually and physically. Funny how well food works when it's done right.

So, um, yeah. London. Gonna go find Panavision tomorrow bright and early and I'll start knocking out a camera and some lenses. After that I'll probably... right, nothing to do around here. I'll probably come back to the hotel and watch BBC News and see what's actually going on in the world. It'll be a wonderful change from watching the news in the States, there might be news!

OK, I'm out and I'm going to start reading Pynchon's "Against The Day" for the third time. I'm hoping the isolation and oddness of Sweden will allow me time to actually get this damn book read. We'll see. Or read. What the fuck ever, you get it, ya?

Peace out, bitches!

Oh you're leaving for Sweden? When are you leavi - oh, you're gone already. What? London? Luke? A jedi? I really need to keep up with this family.

I hope you have fun and avoid injuries. I'll wait for the pics. And if you do run across any real news, pass it along posthaste.

Mr Moose

Ma- ouch. Very mean.
Moose- check your email, Facebook, texts, and voicemail for a complete update on my trying to get you to my house for a going away party and what what. As for news, apparently Thailand is going bonkers, the US is once again supporting a dictatorship in Central America, and the Chinese really are taking over the world. Who knew?
