On the last day of a friend's trip to the states from England, we decided stay up all night until her flight left early this morning. Impulsive and spontaneous, (read: completely unlike me) it was a wonderful all-nighter.
We started the evening with a beautiful chacuterie spread, including mango butter and goat cheese, quite possibly the best combination out there. But, as time went on and I needed to bake brownies and make mousse for my study break today, we regressed to eating brownie batter with a spoon and cheetos. No better way to end a trip to the US, obviously. We ended up watching six episodes of Merlin as well as adoring a certain British gentleman in the final Vicar of Dibley. I also learned the following vocabulary words: bop, shandy, lemonade, class, prat, and about 75 more that I have unfortunately already forgotten. I have also been suitably warned against Eton boys.
