A week stateside

Well, I’m sitting in the Admirals Club lounge at Dallas Fort Worth airport, waiting to get my flight back to London after a week in Dallas. And I’m using my new 17" Powerbook which I eventually got ! I managed to get it for only £1400 which is a lot cheaper than I would have got it at home – basically because of the good exchange rate, and also because Amazon.com are currently offering a $200 rebate on Powerbooks. So I am chuffed with that !

So I had a nice week in Dallas – it was my Dad and my Sister’s birthday last Sunday so we all went to LaDuni’s, which is an upmarket posh kind of Mexican restaurant near where Jill lives. I’m not sure if I like it as much as Mi Cocina, which is where we usually go cos it’s just round the corner from my Mum and Dad’s house.

Anyway, apart from that it was just a week of relaxing and trying to get my computer set up. Did a bit of shopping at Hollister (I’m a gold card holder there now, but should hopefully be platinum soon !) I really like their stuff. Only other thing I bought really was a couple of books and a few CDs.

I also got to watch some films I’d been wanting to catch for a while. I saw The Grudge which is just basically horrend-o-us-l-y scary. There’s not much of a story to it but it’s scary. Kinda put me off my planned trip to Tokyo later this year as well !

I also watched Garden State, which is brilliant. A really nice film, and I totally fancied the girl character in it as well. She is not that pretty but is feisty and has a nice personality – oh that sounds really rubbish but never mind.

I watched another film as well but can’t even remember what it was so it can’t have been that good.

Anyway, it was quite a quiet week as Ailse wasn’t here (she comes out on Thursday) and Jill was working most of the week. So, I’m off to Belfast tomorrow when I get back to London which I’m really looking forward to – it will be nice seeing everyone and I’m looking forward to going to the gym as well. I’ve decided to forget the expense and join the gym at my Dad’s place in London – even though it’s expensive, I’ve put on too much weight recently and want to get back to being slim jim.

So after my week in Belfast, I’ll be back to London, and trying to work out what I’ll be doing when I get back – I know I’ll be in CBBC, but doing what, I’m not sure yet.

No doubt I will be posting up boozy pictures of my time in Belfast so I’ll be posting here again soon – more frequently than I have been recently !
