Awwww

So this morning, timing worked out such that Dad Pony went out for his morning constitutional, I came downstairs, had breakfast, and had completely cleaned up from the meal by the time Dad Pony got back. The following conversation ensued:

Dad Pony: Have you eaten?
French Pony: NINJA BREAKFAST!
DP: What?
FP: I ate and cleaned up in total stealth. No trace of my breakfast remains beyond a mysteriously missing peach.
DP: Is that what the Ninja Turtles did? Did they clean up after themselves when they ate breakfast?

Ah, Dad Pony. Never letting us forget that he is the Baby Boomer parent of two daughters on the cusp between Gen X and Gen Y.

In other news, I've booked my flight to England! I'm leaving Boston on Tuesday the 23rd, landing in England on Wednesday the 24th, schlepping my sorry self straight to Cambridge, and flopping into the bed in the college guestroom. Fun fun fun!

ouch, that last leg to Cambridge is the worse part...I assume you're arriving in Heathrow? But hey, it's almost there! Do you have much left to do or just plain enjoying yourself?

Well, six and a half hours, as opposed to the eight and a half that it would have been flying from Chicago!

There's a bit left to do, including a quick trip to New York to do a guest lecture, but much of it is just hanging with friends and the Pony Parents.

I mean the two-and-then some hour bus or train ride from Heathrow to Cambridge, LOLOL

I think they might arrange a car and driver of some sort for me. That'd be good of them.

"Ninja" is always and forever a good way to move through life.
