Last night we gave a lot of robust thought to our New Year restitutions, but surprisingly, for us, no heated debates ensued ….. the celebratory Vimto and Bitter Lemon we quaffed copiously must have had a very mellowing effect on us.
Most our restitutions had some connection to our Last Vegas Holiday of a Lifetime Holiday, I have restituted that I will diligently maintain an up to the minute 2013 calendar, so that we all know exactly where we will be on any pertinent or prominent day, as Darrell, in particular, is a little prone to getting his dates mixed up …. and I shall perform this important task via the magic of the new Last Vegas calendar now hanging in our kitchen.
Darrell has vouched safe and restituted to learn the street plan of Last Vegas like the back of his hand, studying each section of it and then cross referencing it with places of interest in our guide book, like Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory, thus ensuring that we don’t miss ANYTHING of a tourist type nature while we are there! http://www.ethelm.com/about_us/factory_tour.aspx
And Nigel? ….. He has restituted, with the aid of a Dictaphone and American phrase book (when he gets one) to learn and speak the language as fluently and near native as he can, with a polished James Cagney type accent ….. so that it looks like he has made an effort and has embraced the culture.
He is also taking his bridesmaid duties in the summer very seriously, and is about to set himself a rigorous regime of learning the intricacies and art of petal scattering and taking and holding the bridal bouquet at the appropriate time ….. what is he like?
Here’s to 2013 and all who sail in her!
