A London Visit

Tomorrow I am flying to England on important business. Apart from hopefully finding time to visit the LST Bookshop, I won't divulge the reason for my trip here. I simply want to say that any prayers are much appreciated for a blessed time.

Besides, I'm getting through my Asda Teabags, and if they run out ... pandemonium breaks loose.

Time to stock up, in other words, with the essentials:

  • Marmite
  • Asda Teabags
  • More Asda Teabags

So if you see a slightly overweight but devastatingly handsome chap in London, obsessively reading theology books, stuffing his face with salt and vinegared fish and chips almost constantly - that may well be me. I need a fix every now and then to control my specifically English shaped vices.

That should even out nicely - whenever I go to England I have to bring my teabags with me. You don't have anything remotely like my Black Adder teabags in England and life isn't worth living without the right tea.

ASDA teabags? ASDA!?!

I always had you down as a man of fine taste who would appreciate quality tea, but this illusion has now been well and truly shattered.

Yorkshire Tea, Twinnings or PG Tips are of course perfectly acceptable, but ASDA? I'm too disgusted for words.

I assume the consumption of Real Ale of many pints will also be included on this trip

Steph,

Black Adder Teabags are to Asda teabags what Baldrick is to Heidi Klum.

But I hear you on the importance of teabags.

Steven you Philistine, Asda teabags are an aromatic blend of a variety of the best leaves!

Andrew, Real Ale and Chris Tilling don~t mix well, I am sorry to admit.

I reckon you are interviewing to be the queen's theologian...all the nice things you have said about Rowan Williams are paying off...

Have a London Pride (Fuller's) for me.

I suppose so, if Baldrick is full of mystery, intrigue and spirited flavours and Heidi is pretty wrapped gutlessness ... a Wrightianist couldn't handle Black Adder tea:-)
