December Fish and Chips

This event is back dated to December, but for some reason it never got published.

I had a lovely evening over the weekend at the York Gate Scholars, Fish and Chips Dinner.  Nothing too eventful, but it was a nice change of pace from the typical large gatherings of previous events.  The London scholars and counselors all came together for a Fish and Chips dinner, which happens to be a traditional meal in the UK.  Chips in the UK are what we Americans refer as french fries, whereas potato chips for us is referred to "crisps" for the English.  Little things like that get a bit confusing at first, but one easily assimilates to the culture.  Just like when someone asks how you are doing, they say "Are you alright?".  This expression, used America, comes across as if there is something wrong with me but the British use the expression frequently.  I have become so accustomed to this saying, that I sometimes catch myself asking people, "You alright?".

                                        The meal was tastey, and conversation was splendid.
