from which all other

greenwich, england. 0 degrees longitude. the greenwich prime meridian. the line from which all other lines of longitude are measured. the origin of greenwich mean time.

i took a train out to greenwich today to check out the maritime museum and the royal observatory. the day started out with a little rain, but by early afternoon the sun was shining. spent most of the day out in greenwich and then hit the zombie rush hour tube back to london.

i've yet to find an alcohol that i enjoy. it's time. my difficult mission: to acquire the taste for beer. oh yes, it shall be done. let the reveling and merrymaking commence. i took sam and sean out to the local pub to thank them both for letting me rock the couch for the past ten days. sean recommended a larger shandy, which he described as a cross between 7-up and beer. i finished about half a pint and could do no more... yet the mission continues. i shall return to the states a raving alcoholic.

Just remember - you'll find nothing of value at the bottom of a bottle - and - too often, you'll find only misery. Best to find a more honorable quest? Sorry, but I wouldn't be your mom if I didn't say that, now would I?

I dug on Tetley's bitter while I was over these.
P.S. to Pauly's mom: I find ASSLOADS of value at the bottom of most alcohol-filled vessels.
