Happy Landing in London

I am sitting in the office of Courage UK with Jeremy Marks plowing through the score of e-mails he has to answer after being out of the office for the day. Many not the same sort of deluge that Exodus gets daily (see Fuzzy Ex-Gay Math), but it keeps Jeremy busy.

My flight to London last night went smoothly. I flew Virgin Atlantic. Always wanted to do so, but alas I was not impressed. The vegan meal was insipid. The service was so-so.

Tomorrow I meet up with a friend from Scotland, then I head over to the offices of Greenbelt to talk about this summer’s festival, then hopefully I grab a coffee with James Alison, if we can get our schedules to match up.

    Nice to have you in a timezone close by.

    Do you know that you were mentioned on national TV here in Sweden tonight? I didn’t see it (since I don’t have a TV) but a friend told me.
