Allen just linked to this in the comment section below.

Tipping over a flowerpot? That’s just pathetic.

When the hometown wins the game, the Townie children get very excited.

Dear Mr Hodgson
Further to your recent stay at St Martins Lane, thank you very much for taking the time to complete our website survey which has been forwarded to me.
Guest feedback is most important to us and your review will assist us going forward to ensure we are meeting our guests’ preferences and exceeding expectations.  Your overall positive responses and kind comments are very much appreciated and I am obviously delighted that you enjoyed the hotel.
Your specific comments on Sonia and Emily in particular will be noted on their files and shared with their managers, and I am very pleased that they demonstrated our core values and ethos so well.
Mr Hodgson, congratulations on becoming an uncle to Blake Thomas Batty, our congratulations also to your sister, and I hope you all have an opportunity to stay with us at some point!  When you have made a future reservation, please let me know the booking reference number so that I may personally oversee your stay, including complimentary upgrade and complimentary bottle of champagne.
I look forward to welcoming you back to St Martins Lane.
Warm regards,

Chillin’ with cool people, style.

Last night we here at Gikku.Com were invited to a very, very exclusive Improper Bostonian event. This event included a GUEST LIST (which we were on), a GIFT BAG FULL OF SCHWAG (which we greedily took), and FREE FOOD and DRINKS (which we happily drank).

I’d also like to note that our pictures were snapped by at least 3 different photographers. I can only believe that we will make THE LIST or some reasonable facsimile of it.

As I keep telling Caitlin, I am rapidly becoming a Minor Boston Celebrity and I think it suits me.


Please note teeny, tiny image of my apartment in window.

Hello, what is your name?
Cool Guy.

Here at Gikku.Com, we find ourselves travelling quite a bit. As a service to our loyal readers, we are always happy to give a brief recount of our trips. This entry is no exception.

Caitlin and I went to visit her parents in Richmond, VA on Friday night and arrived back in Townie Town this morning. I can honestly report that Richmond is sort of a Townie Town “Southern Fried” version, full of stray dogs, angry Southern Townies, Food Lions (“ROOOAARRR for green meat!!!”), and lots of Jesus.

I mean, what else is there to do?

Well, Slip-n-Slide in the backyard at Cait’s friend Ashton’s house, for example.



Or you can smoke and throw things in the air (as demonstrated by Ashton).


Or, you can just remember the old tymes by eating GRITS.

Here’s a picture of my nephew. We call him The Chosen One because my parents have been desperate for a baby since about 1989.

When Allen and I were doing our Gikku-in-London project in January, we found a breakfast place that was worthy of celebration. However, we neglected to take a picture of the food itself so loyal Gikku.Com readers could experience it vicariously. I never make the same mistake twice. This time, Caitlin and I made the trek and we were not disappointed.
