Bansai Sheep

It's been ages since I posted an update. I've had 3 glasses of some fine Pinot from a vineyard I went to yesterday, so I'm drunk enough to open the thought gates.

I'm sitting here at Chez Bontrager and enjoying the spoils of Santa Cruz. Keith isn't here and I haven't actually seen him. He left for Pittsburgh before I got here yesterday. He's there for the weekend, then he's off to the UK. He left plenty of good food to eat, though. Nevertheless, I've already expressed my displeasure at him not being here and offering me the 'shoulder to cry' on that I need after my trip. Lucky git...he gets to go to the very place I'd be crying about. The good news is, I get to hang out with Laura and the girls. I always have a good time with Laura. She's just one of those people who is so easy to talk to about anything. She's a good friend, and one I wish I could spend more time with.

I had a fantastic time on my trip to my adopted land. It's like your favorite pair of shoes that fits perfectly no matter how much time has passed since the last time you wore them. The trip did nothing but solidify my desire to be back there on a more permanent basis.

Geez, that was fun. It was so great to see everyone, event though most of the time spent was way too short.

Bring on January!

I dunno. I miss you guys A LOT!

And forgive me, Michelle, but is that name an alias?

Michelle said...

It's an alias for an overseas old bloke who you made very happy recently ....

It was great to see you again Chris. Just sorry I got so utterly shitfaced at the awards and didn't have time or the mental capacity to proper catch up like.

When you are back in January I promise to be slightly less drunk :-)
