Looking forward to my next trip next week. First I’m going to head over to Liverpool for a couple of days for the ACPO-APA 2008, where I will meet some of the UK’s top law enforcement officials. I better hide my flick knife from them. Liverpool, of course, is the home of the Beatles so I’ll see if there’s some opportunity to go to the Beatles museum where I can sing “I want to hold your hand” out loud. Liverpool is also the crime capital of the UK, so it should be fun to get mugged while being at a police conference.
The real fun begins when I hit Scotland. Starting off at Edinburgh, we are going to do a 3 day tour around Scotland, including Loch Ness and Isle of Skye.
We then return to Edinburgh for a day and spend the evening in a real life castle, the Dalhousie. That will be our splurge night with the spa and nice meal…not just haggis.
Should be a fab time. Can’t wait for the scotch and finally capturing the Loch Ness Monster. Wish you were beer.
Word: Flick Knife
Definiton A type of knife with a folding or sliding blade that springs out of the grip when a button or lever on the grip is pressed. aka “switchblade”
Usage: If you don’t bring me a proper cuppa, I will stick my flick knife up ur arse.
I swear to God there seems to be an “important” football match every other week. Well this week(month), we have the Euro2008.
The most glaring thing with this event, however, is that the UK is not present….and as such…Beckham is not present. And when I say Beckham, I mean Victoria…aka Posh. So sad.
Digging into this matter a bit further, I discovered that the reason being commonly cited by Britons is football manager Steve McClaren, who was sacked after the UK not qualifying. Personally I think it was because they did not offer the red carpet treatment to Victoria.
