  • Outdated

    So it has been a LONG while since Jen and I really updated the blog. This isn’t really an update either. This post is me admitting that it has been so long since we updated the blog that the theme I designed SIX YEARS AGO is no longer working. So rather than fix it, I […]

  • gypsy’s warning

    A quiet word to an employee or aquaintance, suggesting that they’d best proceed with caution in respect of their current conduct or attitude, or they may be in for an unpleasant surprise. The details of which aren’t actually set out by the giver of the warning, who may or may not have control over their […]

  • Pick Up The Phone
    Master P

    Thursday morning Jen and I decided to go stand in line for the new iPhone 4 at our local O2 shop. This is our epic journey in the quest for a phone. (And no worries, Jen will get back around to blogging about our lovely visitors soon.)

  • Get In

    An exclamation of energetic pleasure or the like. For example “I got a raise at work, Get In!” Origins are with football. When a ball is kicked at a goal and it just barely makes it in the net, one would also yell “Get in!”

  • So apparently we have a blog?

    We are way overdue for an update, and seeing as Jen and Gina are both busy today, you are left with a second rate blog post from the supporting actor. Sorry about that, but hey, I promise to try my best.

  • Drew’s Big Fat New Job

    Some of you may have expected it when you heard Ticketmaster closed the echo offices, but after almost four months of working for Ticketmaster proper – I am moving on to a new gig…

  • Fall Movie Picks

    There are a few movies coming out this fall and winter that have me really excited. Here are my highlights of the top ten flicks I will be viewing and think you should to (assuming you have the same bad taste in movies as I do).

  • Hello, Goodbye

    “The silent drama of our lives over the last two months” or “How I feared I would loose my job, be forced to pack our bags and return to the states begging for spare change.” A true story of the stress we hid from our friends and family.

  • History of Golden Lane Estate

    A historical look at our home in central London

  • Boring Birthday Bash

    Yesterday was my thirtieth birthday. Jen and I tried to have grand plans, but it was the middle of the week and we were thousands of miles from our friends and family, but it is all okay because being an old man I was more than happy to sit at home on the couch watching TV. In addition to the birthday, it is also spring and Easter Holiday this weekend. So click on through to read more…

  • Ladies and Gentlemen, Gusty has Left the Building

    After an exciting week of endless meetings and pub crawls, John Gusty has boarded a plane and flown home to his wife and boys. Jen and I really enjoyed his visit and hope to see him again soon. Jen completed her first week at her new job. London hosted the G-20 Economic Summit and G-20 Protests all in the same week. It is a crazy life for us London-kids.

  • John Gusty Comes to London

    John Gusty is in the echo London office this week to help train some new partners, but we wanted to give him a little time to play the tourist before he started his work week…

  • Happy 311 Day

    Real quick update before we call it a day. Jen says thank you for all the birthday well-wishes. She was especially touched by the flowers (you know who you are). I will also mention that someone got his wife flowers as well in an attempt to be a good husband. Jen met me for lunch […]

  • The Weekend of IKEA, House, and Watchmen

    So, the weekend is coming to a close and I have agreed to write a blog entry – lucky you. 🙂 I really enjoyed this weekend (though we still have the evening to go before it is time for bed). Jen and I didn’t overcommit to costumes or parties or walking or cleaning or laundry. […]

  • Stuck in a Lift

    So yeah, they (whoever they are) mean it when they say “4 Person Maximum” on the elevator sign. Today my coworker, Janita, and I were heading to a client planning meeting at their offices with a couple of peeps from one of our partner companies. We had met these two at their offices first to […]

  • Why Doesn’t Drew Post More Often?

    And the answer is… I am busy. Nothing more glamorous than that unfortunately. Good news is, I am back with an update today so Jen could take the night off. May not be great news to you, but Jen is glad to have a night to herself. Over the next few weeks Jen and I […]

  • Paul Fryer

    Our first art exhibit proves to be an eye opening experience.

  • Great Art in Londontown

    Jen and I had, what I consider, a great opportunity to see this work, Morning Star, in person yesterday. It is by an artist I had never heard of before, but I am very glad I now have. His work may not be earth shattering or mind altering. Of course then again – I am […]

  • Money Down on New Digs

    Right to the point – we put a deposit down on this [link removed] place today. Jen had been talking to me about a different place yesterday. Yeah, the same one she posted a blog entry about because she was so excited about it, and today she passed on it completely – even putting a […]

  • Hey, Quiet Out There!

    So yesterday, on my way into the office there was a large chuck of Leicester Square blocked off by barricade and a large crane was behind it hanging a sign on the front of the Empire building. Now I guess I should tell you a bit about Leicester Square so you understand what I am talking […]

  • The Huddlestons Have Landed

    So after thirteen hours of travel, Jen and I finally made it to the flat. We think we got pretty lucky with TM putting us in the same location as our previous visit because this time we will already be a little familiar with the locale. We had a little issue with shipping a few […]

  • The Epic Tale Continues…

    So this week my work permit arrived from the UK office. One would like to think that was the end of, what has become, the epic process of entering the UK, but one would be wrong. Apparently, while I can now legally work in the UK, I still have to be approved to ENTER the […]

  • The Final Decision

    Well the budgets have been created, checked, double checked, tweaked, triple checked, torn apart, put back together and checked again. Discussions have been had. …many, many times, and we have finally reached a decision. Looks like Drew And Jen are going to London! I have actually been holding off on publishing this blog post for […]

  • The Visit, Day Three

    Today started out with an early visit to the TM office to chat with a couple people I didn’t get a chance to meet with yesterday. Was only there for about an hour but I feel like I got a lot of important questions answered. Still have a few more people I have to touch […]

  • The Visit, Day Two

    Yesterday was short and busy. Started the day off by sleeping till 11am local time after going to sleep around midnight – 11 hours of sleep, yeah, we suffered from jet-lag. After we finally got up and around we got ready, did a little catching up online and Jen prepped for a phone call with […]

  • The Visit, Day One

    Jen and I touched down in the UK this morning at 9:00am local time after traveling for HOURS. We had been in the air since 4:00pm Nashville, which for those of you doing the math (and after the additional commute to the flat) means we were traveling for over 12 hours. It made for a […]
