This is what happens when we get a lot of rain -- slithery things start crawling around on the sidewalks!
Our friend Kellee arrived yesterday from Michigan for a weeklong visit. So far we've only been able to show her that many pubs stop serving food between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. We tried to get a late lunch yesterday and had to settle for pizza at a little hole-in-the-wall near Queensway.
When we came back to our flat Dave made shepherd's pie for dinner, thus giving us our quotient of pub food. (I got in an early-morning run to offset this gluttony!)
We then shocked Kellee by showing her a TV program called "Embarrassing Bodies," on which doctors examine and address all manner of medical maladies. No part of the body is considered too intimate to be seen on this show, and no disorder too grotesque. I'm hardly a prude, but during "Embarrassing Bodies" I never cease to be amazed that I'm watching plain ol' broadcast television -- at prime time, no less. It would not fly in the states!
