Washington DC!

I've only been here four hours and I've already eaten:
* steamed broccoli
* green beans with sesame
* salmon in pesto sauce
* strawberry cheesecake

Plus a large Diet Coke.

All goodies that I have not had since my last visit to the US - a year ago.

AND I still couldn't escape the &$%#ing World Cup. On the flight from Paris to DC I was surrounded by Italian, German, and Belgian men all excitedly discussing the day's results. Then when my friend and I went to the Sizzle Express (site of my eclectic meal above) of course ESPN was on for the Japan-Brazil match.

Now I'm going to take a shower and blissfuly conk out.

Dude! Sometime before you leave the states we should totally talk on the phone. :D Assuming you have time, of course, since I wouldn't want to interfere with your itinerary.

When I was standing in the immigration line (hmm...awfully quick when MoBob's not there) there was an overhead TV showing ESPN's coverage. Is that pandering to the masses or what?!

What about a nice pav?

Yummm.

Conking out sounds like a good option to me right now (and I've only just started 'work')

Er, I'm in DC most of the week... if you are free, should we have coffee? I can email my cell no. I understand that time is at a premium, but thought I might as well ask!

I'll make sure we stock the fridge with Diet Coke so you can drink to your heart's delight while you're at our place. And I promise, there will be no soccer talk at our house!
