This is England and Morgan gets humped

After travelling a tiresome but worthwhile 22 hours to London, we’re now in beautiful, foggy, Reading, England. The fog in England is pretty infamous, but you don’t have to travel very far to get a taste of this fine delicacy. Your local coffee shop serves up its own foamy version calling it a London Fog. I wonder if they make those here? I’ll have to get back to you on that one.

Our first homecooked meal was typically English. Mountains of cottage pie (like a shepards pie but with baked beans added) and wine glasses topped with orange. Dessert is prompt as is the proper dinner etiquette in England. We’re fork deep in lemon tart well before the steam has even left the cottage pie.

Harvey, one of our new roommates, is an English bulldog. He’s big, bad and packed full of attitude and drool. He’s found a friend in Morgan. Apparently Morgan was sitting in Harvey’s usual seat yesterday and after a few crotch plows, grunts and glares, Morgan was literally being humped off the couch.

For any of you who have some extra time on your hands, check out this show we found while watching some British teley; it’s called This is England ’86. The show follows the lives of several young skinheads in England in 1982. Skinhead roots derive from English, white nationalists who embraced black culture, ska, soul and reggae music, leading to much upheaval amongst its followers. There’s explicit sex scenes, blatant drug usage, alcohol abuse, relationship drama and lots of humour. Enjoy.

PS. I didn’t know that Ricki Gervais was from Reading. Even better, my cousin’s best buddy use to work with Gervais’ bro. Just a little celebrity buzz from my side of town.
