The birthday celebration continued as the Budman and I celebrated the "actual day" of my birthday having Tex-Mex at our new favorite Mexican food restaurant, Wahaca . OK, preferred cuisine was available for the birthday meal. Check.
Secondly, we were able to capitalize on dinner with friends from Waxahachie who were in London "for one night and one night only" as they were enroute to Tuscany for vacation. Due to the power of email, an impromptu meal was coordinated. Not only were we able to catch up on all things "Means", including but not limited to the chiropractic clinic, family, the golf game, Ebay selling hobby, the Crib Sheet, Corsicana Theater, and the new budding society reporter (Frank, not Melissa), we were also able to make some new friends, Mike and Andrea, who are transplanted Texans to London. Nice dinner companions. Check.
Last, but not least...after much searching...from country to country....we finally hit "pay dirt". Yes...an in-country source for the much loved, "rarely found outside of the US" candy favorites, Dots, Sweet Tarts, and Cinnamon Red Hots. No more are we reliant on imports from friends visiting from the States. We can now shop at our hearts content at Cyber Candy .
We were just strolling back to the tube when we wandered past this sweets store in the broadest sense of the word. They had everything - check out the link above to their website! Other goodies include Oreos, Twinkies, and Fruit Loops - it's not that we really missed them but it is nice to know they are there. Fine...the candy motherload. Check.
Lest anyone coming for a visit thinks that entry to Hotel Young is still not dependent on a few boxes of Dots and Hot Tamales, think again. At least, we some other interim options. We can even order online.
A true birthday trivecta!
