The Best Of The Rest: Onwards To London Edition

London at night

London. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Another week in the blogosphere has flown by this time filled with anticipation for my forthcoming holiday which, drum roll please, begins on Wednesday and lasts for an entire week. Woot. For part of it I shall be heading down to London to pick up my in-laws as they fly in from Tokyo and show them the sights there before bringing them up to Scotland. I’m both excited and slightly nervous at the prospect of meeting them again as they don’t speak a word of English and my Japanese is limited to formal greetings, generic stock phrases and sexual commands (don’t ask). All in all, should be a lot of fun though and I’m looking forward to it. And don’t fret, my blogging should mostly continue uninterrupted (I’ll have a few 5 hour train journeys to kill, after all).

Anyway, enough about me, let’s look at the gems that I sifted from this week’s blog archives:

  1. Heehee, your situation reminds me of when my husband and I go visit my grandmother. She doesn’t speak a word of English either, and he knows ZERO cantonese. You should see the hilarity that ensues when she tries to give him driving directions. Cross-cultural marriages are fun, aren’t they? :)

    Thanks for the mention. In the end, friendships were mended and the EVE Community has moved on passed this little “tempest in a glass” situation. All is well! :D
