1,293 days later. The final tally.

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

And I’m on my way home. One thousand, two hundred and ninety three days later (thanks to the Date Duration Calculator for that one) and it’s time to take a one-way ticket back again. Whilst reading through all my blog entries the other day it was fascinating (if not, slightly excrutiating) to discover my posts […]

Going home is easy now, as I’ve finished my packing. I literally had to sit on my suitcase to squeeze down the top of my bag so that I could get the zip to go all the way across. I’m taking back more than I brought across with me, and I’m still leaving behind a […]

So here it is then – my ultimate list of why the UK rules, and the USA sucks. Ok, no – I’m not gonna do that. Do you really think I’ve learned nothing during me time year? (Don’t answer that!). Far from it, I’ve learned loads. But when reading through every single post I’d written […]

The Best … Going Home to London Album in the World – Ever!

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

I’ve been making a ‘Going Home’ playlist. Glasvegas – Please come back home The Clash – London calling James – Come home Supertramp – Take the long way home East 17 – Around the world “I’ve been around the world, but there’s no place like home” Simon & Garfunkel – Homeward Bound Crowded House – […]

So I’m packing clothes into a suitcase today, and I’m hit with the strangest of thoughts. I’m folding up an old crappy t-shirt that I remember I used to wear back in Britain, and started to worry that I might have had it too long. “Will it look weird if I go home with some […]

Hello, I must be going … home

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Last week in the USA then. As I sit and type this, I realise that at this time next week I’ll be on a plane. First I go north a bit to Philadelphia, and then east quite a bit more to London. It’s time … The Prodigal Son returns to the City of Londinium next […]

The Second Amendment

Friday, October 30th, 2009

With just over two weeks until I leave the land of the free, two of my friends here Chet & Andy decided that they needed to take me for a proper American experience – by shooting a gun. So off we trotted to the local firing range to ‘play’ with some 9mm’s. What really got […]

8. Reality

Monday, June 29th, 2009

I am in Greensboro, NC. And this – I’m afraid to say – is a very very real video. This was recorded by Katie on my crappy backup second camcorder video camera this morning, and hence the poor quality, apologies. Note: There is some strong language. They took my main kick-arse video editing PC. My […]

Stats 2

Monday, March 30th, 2009

So today I’ve done the same on my mobile/cell phone. Gone through all the people I have in my address book, and tallied up whether they’re male/female and a UK or USA based person. Short, sweet, and simple … it comes out like this: Total number of people in my address book: 97 Number of […]

Stats 1

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

Hello blog, yes I know it’s been a while – sorry – but I’ve been planning something rather, umm … major. But more on that in a few days time … So in the meantime, let’s have a whole string of posts with some quick & dirty stats fun instead! And today’s guest : Facebook! […]

A bunch of Ediots!

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

“So … why don’t you come home, Geoff?”. is a question that seems to get asked of me a lot by people back home. Well …. … because when I can have this amount of fun, in this amazing city, with this bunch of beautiful people, it makes it fucking hard to imagine leaving one […]

UK vs USA – See for yourself

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Here’s a little fun, quick & dirty video which I’ve been meaning to knock together for a while. When I was back in England at Christmas and New Year, I recorded a few quick shots, and it’s taken me until this week to get around to do the same here in Charleston. If you’re English […]
