: Sorry for the big build-up; here's stack.

<stack> Man. Its going to be so great.
<leonardr> if there's something they have there that you can't get here, lemme know so i can get you some
<stack> What I want you can't bring home (Pint in a country pub... train ride through english country-side).
<stack> England is beautiful.
<stack> Or... least, can be.
<stack> Tate modern is pretty amazing. Otherwise I always liked the portrait gallery. Its to the side of the national gallery.
<stack> Then if your in london for a w/e, get up early and go to brick lane mkt. Its in old part of london, whitechapel (Jack the Ripper, where marx used live, now its indians and south asians... amazing restaurants... biggest mosque in england)... market is good taste of old england...
<stack> My brother is manager at camden mkt which your sister might drag you too... I worked there for years. Its touristy now... but if she takes you, go to the compendium bookstore there.

Stack's brother is no doubt the celebrated Eamon Stack. I may look him up and say hi.

: Atticus, who looks a bit like I did at his age, now has a little brother, Samuel.

: My award-losing photo of the poorly-designed Lord of the Rings game box ("Where does Sauron go? Why the huge plastic depressions to hold small things like little cardboard punch-outs? A game within a game!") gets hit by a lot of Google image searches for "lord of the rings". This actually makes some sense; it's one of the only pictures of its kind which is a picture of "lord of the rings" rather than a picture of some specific part of Lord of the Rings, like Tom Bombadil. So I assume that all the vague people who got it as a search result are happy.

: OK, I'm off. I'll be back on the 30th. Amount of news to be bruised between now and then: unknown.
