Uncle Stu Goes to London

Originally uploaded by CaseWriter21.
After two weeks of exploring London solo (read: hanging out at Starbucks), I finally saw a familiar face this past weekend -- Uncle Stu! He made the 6,000 mile trip across the Atlantic to see the sights, visit his old stomping ground, and frolic with pigeons in Trafalgar Square. Together, we saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, went to Westminster Abbey, took in a couple shows in the West End, and of course, played with the pigeons. The picture was taken in front of Buckingham by a technologically savvy Asian boy (when looking for tourists to take your picture, I recommend young Asians). Plenty more pics on Flickr. And the pigeon video is seriously the most fun I've had in a long time. Enjoy!

Dude the palace picture....what's up with the flipped up collar?! You're not following that crappy ass trend, are you?

What happened to your exercise blogs? Going to start that again after you finish this paper?

hehehehe... I was wondering when somebody was going to call me on the collar. ;-) I had it up because the sun was incredibly intense that morning and I had forgotten to bring sun screen. Since I turn Crispy Red in about 20 minutes without sun screen, i was doing everything i could to stay pale. Unfortunately, I only realized after I took the picture that the collar was up! (I fixed it in the other one.

My exercise blog is still there for those who care to look at it, but it's not getting a lot of use. I absolutely plan to start hitting the gym on a regular and frequent basis as soon as I get back to the states, believe me.

And who the hell are you, anyway? Is this Dane? My stat counter is stymied by your IP address, doesn't know where you're posting from. Reveal yourself!

Yeah, it's me buddy. I'm at an Apple store, darn iPod is acting up, so while I waited around for an hour to finally speak to a tech person, I remembered your blog.

Glad to hear that the collar was for protection rather than following that silly trend.

Real glad to hear about your intent to hit the gym! Stick it with it buddy, and you'll be swimming in dames in no time!

Oh wait...what's this?...they're going to replace my iPod...the USB plug in port on the iPod corroded from when I take it running...hey I work myself hard and sweat a lot.

Dane! How was the bar, man? You never respond substantively to my e-mails. I hope you responded substantively to the bar exam questions. :-)

DUDE, get that NikePlus thing so you can track your runs. I'm picking one up as soon as I get back to Michigan. (Would get it here but i left my Nano at home, d'oh!) I'm so excited about it.
