    Default Happy St George's Day!

    I feel oddly patriotic today. Unusual for me, I'm usually kinda down on anything that smacks of nationalism.

    Still, maybe it's the sunshine, maybe it's working at home and being able to BBQ myself some lunch, but Happy St George's day everyone!

    In that light, today, for the only time ever, the three famous cruise ships are together in the town I work. The home of cruising, Southampton.

    After this, the QE2 will end up as a floating hotel in Dubai.

    Um...you Brits and your funny holidays.

    Enjoy your BBQ lunch. Will you be serving one of the dragons you're spearing in your avatar?

    Have a happy day celebrating dragon slaying!

    I heard about this yesterday, from my priest of all people. She mentioned that England is trying to ramp up St. George's Day so it will be on the level of Ireland's St. Patrick's Day and Scotland's St. Andrew's Day.

    So, Happy St. George's Day!

    Thanks all!

    Bear in mind, we don't have Independence Day*, Storming the Bastille Day, Presidents Day, Empire Day (or Australia, Canada Day as it has become in the respective countries) etc. In short, we don't have any national celebrations at all. So it wouldn't hurt to remember being English once a year.

    *seeing as we lost, that isn't surprising.

    Thanks! It was a fresh trout, BBQ'd and then flaked into a toasted pitta with a blue cheese dressing - awesome. Even my cats enjoyed the leftovers.

    I, of course, speared the trout personally in my avatar manifestation on this plane.

    I hope you slapped someone around a bit with the trout before you cooked it!

    No need to hope... it's the law here to do that. Like an old charter, or something.
