CP goes British


Gentle Readers,

I'm on vacation! This post finds me in the United Kingdom with the lovely and talented Melinda June. Check out her blog where I am guest posting on occasion for the next ten days or so.

I have a lot to tell you of my recent life in New York, which I will get to once a) my already low supply of energy has been replenished; and b) I figure out how to use this God-damned Euro keyboard with which Melinda has been cursed. Who taught these damn Limeys to put the @ key next to the semi-colon???? And what the fuck is up with these SHIFT keys that are about half a centimeter long? I'm about to go all ee cummings here because capitalizing is taking most of my spare time. I'm already sick of it.

Tomorrow I'm hitching a ride to the train and going into Central London to buy myself a new wardrobe. I have not yet approved these expenditures, so please mums the word to Poor George until I've had a chance to discuss this with him at length.

Love,
CP

PS: my life as a Strategic Sales Executive, which has prevented me from delivering more timely posts to my Gentle Readers, is going to be short-lived. On this matter you may take my word.

I know who you're going to see. I'm SO clever. Dale,right?

Coaster Punchman said...

Umm, Dale lives in Canada, dear. Same Commonweath, different continent.

Hey stop knocking the euro keyboard! If it wasn't for the Euro keyboard America wouldn't have been discovered. Or something....

Miroslav said...

I agree with the freelance - the euro shift key built America!

Dale said...

You must be planning on meeting yourself CP, aren't you everyone's favourite blogger?

Either that or it's Lulu.

Oh boy! The train! I love riding the train, especially in England. If you leave the city, you can see fuzzy sheep in pastures.

I wish I was able to go to the Meet & Greet in London! Here's a store I'd like to go browse (there is one in NY so it might not be thrilling for you).

Whenever I encounter a 'foreign' keyboard, I just type like I do back home and enjoy the weirdly written stuff.

And thank you for adding me to your bloggy list! :)

Old Lady said...

Well, you just have fun now. Touch the Queen for us all. Maintain the status quo of the American Tourist. Eat some good food. Send a picture of the Euro key board.

Who's taking care of the kitties?

Dino aka Katy said...

yeah shopping in england thats almost as much fun as eating/drinking

Grant Miller said...

While you're in the UK, be sure to use as many Brit Phrases in your blog posts as possible. And spell color "colour" etc.

Thank you.

Melinda June said...

Oy, Miller. Are you making fun of my spelling? Piss off, you stupid twat.

Bubs said...

You lucky jet-setting bastard.

Beth said...

Y'all quit taking a piss at Coaster Punchman! He's going to MTM me when he gets back, so I need him happy and ... um ... gay.

jin said...

(LMAO @ beth's comment!!!!)

Do me a favour while you're there?
Eat 20 Thornton's Continental Chocolates every day for breakfast.

Now remember, you are doing this for me so there is absolutely noting wrong with eating that many. It's not like I'm asking you to do anything that I wouldn't!

Freelance & Miroslav, wouldn't you bitches be speaking German without us? (Sorry Katy!)

Um, that would be "favorite" blogger, Dale.

Dale said...

Sorry CP, I won the Grade Six spelling bee and I know exactly how to put u in its place.
