May 2009

In May, I think it hit me that I going to be leaving England pretty soon. I had a handful of assignments to turn in, but still found some time to get out a bit. Here's a couple things I done did:
- Tom and I started heading out to the Peak district during the weekends. In early May, we checked out a couple cool areas to take advantage of the decent weather.
- I ate a lot of fish & chips-- damn, I miss it. In May, I took over Si's room-- sharing a flat with Jamie, Tom and Gus. This meant I was just around the corner from Two Steps Chippy-- this spot has been in the same location for over 100 years.
- Craig is from a town called Whitley Bay, near Newcastle. The football team reached their conference final, the Vase Cup, and Craig wanted to go down to the match at Wembley. Naturally, we took a limo. I guess Whitley Bay won; I got housed on mimosas.
- Wetherspoon's introduced a new menu, but the Ploughman's stunk.
- Tom and I went to Leeds to see the Specials reunion tour. I lost my phone at the concert, but the show was good.
- It's English tradition to have a 'football do'- or a night out with your team- at the end of the season. We went out for dinner and to a couple pubs for beers.
It was a good month; but, I realized summer was around the corner and needed to get everything sorted.
