I see London, I see France,..


This next week will probably be where flasshe finally outlasts me in our consecutive days of blogging contest. I'm heading off for a one week sojourn to Europe (England, France, Spain), and don't have any multi-part guides to Dutch prog-rock bands from the 1970s ready to post, so I'll need to keep posting in regular time to keep my streak alive.

There are tons of internet cafes in London and Barcelona, so I can probably keep blogging most days next week, but I'm also spending a few days in Sivignon, France visiting friends who live in the middle of nowhere with dial-up internet (combien de primitif!), so I doubt I'll be able to post every day.

There are a lot of important events going on while I'm away. There's the FA Cup Final this Saturday in London (My legal betting money's on Pompey over Cardiff, but I'm cheering for the Welsh team), the Champions League final in Moscow on Wednesday (with two English clubs, another clash between the reds and the blues), and the Eurovision finals in Belgrade next Saturday! By this time next weekend, I could be watching the next Bucks Fizz!

I'm soooo envious that you will be IN EUROPE for Eurovision.

Enjoy your trip. When in France, remember to eat cheese, act like a monkey, and surrender whenever possible.

Also: no Dutch prog-rock bands, but you could always look into the history of bands discovered on Dutch prog-rock websites.

Or, uh, not.

Have a great trip! You're not missing any quality baseball, that's for sure...
