ENGLAND WHERE: Penny Lane Pub (421 E Franklin St, Richmond, VA 23219) I remember going to some fancy little tea shop in Stony Brook almost two decades ago when I used to hang around Selden House. We all went as a big group after sleeping over there one night. I don't think it's entirely a British place, but I do remember there were plentiful scones and I learned back then that I did not really care for scones in the slightest. I also made a huge plate of cucumber sandwiches for Dan one afternoon-- like a HUUUUGE plate... and I didn't realize back then that it would be easier to put the spread on them first, so I basically sat there for like two hours spreading each of the little tiny finger sandwiches so they would be ready for him when he got home from work. But two hours later, cucumber sandwiches, kippers, TARDIS Tea (from Tea & Absinthe) and cue the Doctor Who theme song... geeky British dinner was served! I've definitely also had my share of earl grey tea along with fish and chips in the past-- so I guess I already finished this one off my checklist before. In fact, it was one of the few countries that got automatically crossed off on the first day I decided to create Traveling By Tastebuds. Still, I figured I would hit up Penny Lane Pub for the fun of it anyway. I knew I was in the right place as soon as I parked my car, because while trying to figure out if I needed to pay the parking meter or if I was far enough way, I heard a very strong British accent. He helped me figure out that yes, the meter did need to be paid (only $1.50 so not that bad). Anyway, the place was really cute from the outside-- Union Jack flags all flying, painted Queen's guards standing by-- but once I entered the building it was like walking through the Cardiff rift. It's half museum when you walk inside, every single piece of wall covered by Beatles memorabilia, British classic rock albums, soccer and rugby souvenirs with a red phone booths standing in the corner. Then you enter the main pub area and the sounds of people cheering for their soccer teams complete the imagery. I ended up getting a table in the dining room with an enormous fireplace, swords and clan emblems on the walls, my Royal Stewart Tartan over the fireplace mantle-- it definitely felt like I was not in Richmond anymore! I've never really been that into British food before, but the ambiance there is like a quick hop over the ocean which already made the place a winner in my book. I got the cottage pie (which came with some good homemade-style rye bread). I've never really liked British food since it's a lot of meat and potatoes, but it was really good. Very classically done, felt rustic in a way. It came with some HP sauce, which I've never heard of but it's supposedly some brown sauce that comes out of the United Kingdoms. The brown sauce was not my favorite and I still regret pouring it all over my much better mashed potatoes. I really wish I didn't have to return to work right after this lunch though because I should have realized a pub would have an extensive list of beers. British, Irish and Scottish beers were all listed by country and I really need to get back there at some point and sample each and every single one of them! I have needs! After my meal, I walked around a bit looking at all the memorabilia on the walls (they even let me go upstairs where more stuff was hanging even though it wasn't open when they saw I was so enthusiastically checking everything out-- Titanic souvenirs, old English antiques, Queen Elizabeth posters, ect). They even had a TARDIS in the bathroom. I found the whole place just adorable and it definitely lives up to how they billed themselves as "decor-rich" and "a tribute to all things English". Almost felt a little bit of a shock when I stepped back outside and I was all of a sudden back in Virginia.
I should also point out the UK box from Universal Yum Yums from June 2020. England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales all in one box. I'm surprised they got to my apartment without fighting each other... Heh.

i gave an interview about my ebook and i’m nervous
[I wrote this before the interview came out, then figured I should hold onto it and post, in quick succession, a screed about what I felt before it came out, and then a screed with what I felt after.] Today I made what felt like the difficult decision to pay $18.99 for a digital collection of interviews with the writer William T. Vollmann, whose latest novel The Lucky Star was one of the best…

Not to sound like cringe 13 y/o going thru a phase but it's kinda cool how there are so many ppl on this earth but we all still see the same sun and the same moon. We're all so far apart and live in very different ways but at the base we're still all just humans living on earth. Funky!
