A trip to London would mean dipping into my house downpayment fund, and I don't think I could bear 8 hours on a plane. It nearly drives me insane to fly to California. Still, it's a nice thought that cheers me when I'm glum.
I'll pay for your flight. But fuck me if you've got knees like mine, you'd stay at home. 8 hours - fuck that. That's why I'll never visit the States. Well there are some other reasons too, but knees mainly.
