Why do Inky and xxx even click on the heading if they don't want to read the posts. I have a hard time understanding some why if your not interested you even WASTE your time. Personally I enjoy reading about others and their exciting times. Keep em coming

Inky, your right to complain is as enshrined as Beth's to tell folk what she's up to.

However I can assure you she IS in London, she IS doing what she says and she DID almost bump into the worst PM Britain has ever had. So one incorrect statement is that she's faking it.

Would love to meet you - are you only here on the weekend? Weeks day evenings work much better for me, as I am already in central London...
Kavey

PS Inky, you really ought to get out more.

Beth:

Can you advise us a hotel for July. We are taking our grandchildren to London(7 days) and Paris(7days). They are teens. we think that we need air conditioning at that time? We would like a nice, but not too expensive hotel.

Oooh people getting angry at me. This I like.

I clicked on the link because i didnt know it was a bethanderson post - how would i? Duh!

It's this whole crap about helping out/answering questions etc...your primary motive is to tell people you're in London- SFW!! We've all been (some of us even live there!!).

'My emplyer laid off 11,000 people but wanted to base whoever was left around me and all this dont-i-just-love-myself garbage'. Sheila, I've not doubt that BA is in london (no one could make up such banal stuff about bumping into mags milk-snatcher) but read the rest, ladies.

Gosh, Inky - even if the title of the post didn't mention Beth's name, the next line when it was opened did. I assume at that point you could have pushed the back button and just gone to the next post, no?

Yeah you're right I could have but I persevered through it hoping it was of some interest and vaguely connected to travel and NOT a touchy-feely session about BA.

I wanted to read a thread about London. Instead I got a love-in hosted by Beth. Again, as usual, kavey jumps in.

The other post was deleted I presume because kavey was peppering the thing with swear words and describing lewd sex acts directed at me. Why she did this I dont know - she has it in for me I think.

Beth -

It's great that you're having a good time in London. However, I think your sense that you are a "novelty" over there may be in your head. There are currently 200,000 expatriates from the U.S. alone (let alone those from other places) living in London, so what you're doing is not exactly unique. Don't forget about all of the people who pick and move with less education or different language skills who pick up and move to a place all alone that is far more foreign to them than the U.K. is to a U.S. citizen. My guess is that you're well aware of this by now, but may be playing things up for some of the poor souls here who are living vicariously through you - and, in turn causing the other poor souls who bash you to think you are full of yourself.

I hope you secure a job and that your experience living abroad is as wonderful as mine was living in other parts of the world. Good luck.

Kavey, I'm here THROUGH Sunday eve., leaving on Mon. am. I love Italian (or whatever you're up for) and am available any eve. (as long as it is near a tube stop please). Will be checking my email around 9 or 10am Thurs. Thanks, and looking forward to it, Mike.

My dear Inky -- your recent outbursts have not been up to your usual standards of trenchant wit -- is that you? You are also whining more than I remember from the early days. I'd really hate to think you had become one of those who can "dish it out", but not take it return...

Question:
I am fretting over what type of jacket/coat I should travel in while I am in London. I will be arriving next week. Please advise.
Thanks.

I tend to lean towards those posters who think Beth is just a big show-off. I've lived in London and many other places and presently live in one of the most beautiful places in the states, so don't give me that jealous crap. Is she the one who bumped into M. Thatcher? Another, who cares? What does this have to do with travel?

Beth is from America, so she had to TRAVEL to London in order to bump into the former Prime Minister of London which to some of us out here is a big deal...if you all find it such a NOT big deal, why have you kept reading something with 57 responses to it?

Beth, Our family of four will stay in London a few days and head to Paris for a full week. We are considering driving from London to Paris, any advice on that idea is appreciated.

Cleo,
THIS week the temps are in the 8 - 12 degree range which is in the 40's? Not sure, but they only report in Cel. over here. Bring an umbrella and a sweater. I'm wearing just a sport coat and a light leather coat. Hope this helps. M.

hmmn, I'm sure there's a home for such nastiness somewhere, I'm buggered if I know what Beth's done to deserve it. As a casual visitor I have probably missed all sorts of petty minded politics that are probably incredibly important to some people. Nevertheless, Beth, I'll venture a recommendation if I may: have you been to Gabriel's Wharf on the south bank, near Waterloo Bridge? Great little shops and a fab cheapie restaurant. Have fun
