Weekend in Numbers

Okay, I'm totally stealing this concept from BP, but - hey, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Here was my weekend in numbers, with a little imagery thrown in for fun.

10. The number of photographs I decided were acceptable for public consumption that Jon took of me (out of the 100 that I forced him to take) while walking around the Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

this is not one of the ten

9. The number of photographs that Jon allowed me to take of him - total - while walking around the Royal Naval Cottage in Greenwich.

8. The number of times I told the same Rick Perry joke in five minutes before being asked to shut up.  (What is Rick Perry's favorite band?  Earth, Wind, and... uh... oops.)

7. The number of pieces of bacon I ate with brunch on Saturday.  Dear readers, I found Oscar Mayer bacon at Sainsbury's!  That yellow packet has never looked so good.

6. The number of times I exclaimed to Jon while walking around the National Maritime Museum"Hey, this stuff is actually interesting!"  (My favorite exhibit was the one on trade with Asia, focusing on the East India Company.)

5. The number of times I picked up and then put back on the shelf the same jar of Nutella at the supermarket.  Yes, I bought it in the end, but I've taken it to Jon's flat because I just don't trust myself.

4. The number of times the children I was babysitting told me that I wasn't reading Harry Potter aloud to them properly because of my accent.

3. The number of times Jon told me that my vote didn't mean anything after we watched The Ides of March - this number would have been higher except that I cried and so he felt guilty for ruining my dreams.

2. The number of speeches at my friend James' birthday party on Friday night.

1. The number of weeks until Jon and I go to the States for Thanksgiving!
