Plump, dimpled, Diana-Barry-like elbows no longer in fashion. :(
@SarahP Shit. I had been congratulating myself on that...
@Brynn @twitter I know! (Except the other thing we win at is having our own president ousted first. We're always first! Erg...)
@The Lady of Shalott The scene with the shirts was the moment when I was like: well, now, wait a minute, there might be something to this after all...
@mustelid No, it's still definitely worth it! (Despite all the ham talk, I'm more of a flexitarian myself, though I would never use that word in real life, I promise.) They often have great vegetarian specials, and they keep meatless Mondays, so I would definitely try to go then if I were you. They're big on nose-to-tail, but they're also super locavore-y about the produce. The heirloom tomato tart they do in the summer is maybe the best thing I've ever eaten in my life. I'd recommend getting there a bit early (6ish?) and sitting in the bar (there are tables for two). Reservations can be tricky, especially now with graduation season.
@area@twitter WK love! (BTW, they currently have ice cream made with that same VA country ham. It's, um, different. But worth trying to say that you have!)
@OwlOfDerision This is a very good idea, and much better than my idea of bringing my antisocial cat.
@stuffisthings YES! A friend was just trying to convince me to watch the new one (Joan Cusack! What could go wrong!), but I'm not so sure. And I used to live in York, so I also get a wave of nostalgia that -- where's the US version set? Ohio or something? -- the US version can't give me.
@falconet Ha! I don't actually go to Oxford, so you dodged a bullet there. :)
I know, on some level, that it will be fine, but I can't help but be completely irrational about it!
@stuffisthings I watched all of it on Hulu -- and I think it's still on there. I think the US version is in the works (and it will be absolutely terrible, I'm certain). Also a huge fan of Being Human, and I couldn't get through the second episode of the US version. WHYYYYY?!?!?
