Oh and I almost forgot…my birthday didn’t end there. Once we got home we made some popcorn, cracked open some beers and watched Shaun of the Dead on Pay Per View. Funny *we don’t say the zed word here* flick, and it was great to see some of my favourite Brits on the screen. Only had to explain a couple of cultural references to Bill and amazed him when I was able to pinpoint the location. That is, until I pointed out that the street signs had the postcode written on them and the phone book in Shaun’s house was the one for North London! Heh heh.
Ooh which also reminds me..the previous night we had a little scare when we were playing in the office at about 11pm when what sounded like gunfire exploded from what felt like behind the house. The dogs went crazy and had to be calmed down, and after Bill and I had sat and looked at each other for a while he bravely went out to investigate while I cowered at the window with the lights off! Our neighbour was also on his porch across the street trying to work out what the commotion was, but neither he nor Bill got to the bottom of it. Weird. Made sure the doors were very securely locked after that though!
