What with all the time I spent today first in European City Airport and then in Heathrow, I wound up wandering aimlessly through a lot of shops. Which shops resulted in:
- A two-pack of 1-liter bottles of Jameson's, for 27 euros, or about $33 US (bottles run around $28 EACH at my local liquor store)
- Random, last-minute, not-totally-crappy gifts
- Franz Ferdinand's debut album, for 8 pounds sterling (the new release was there, too, but for 11 or 12 sterling--which, with the exchange rate, fucking hell!)
- A hugely overpriced donut and even more ridiculously overpriced bagel sandwich. But by that point, it was all fake money anyway.
Uneventful travels, otherwise. Read for my classes, made up a quiz for my comp students, wrote a pretty damn enthusiastic recommendation for a former student I don't actually totally love (but who's smart, very hard-working, and I'm quite convinced would be an exceptional summer intern), and finally started in on Slammin' Sammy Pepys. Good to be home. Not so good to be teaching tomorrow.
