That’s Randon with an N, not ‘random’with a M. It’s not a spelling mistake – it’s my name. And no, you’ve probably never met one before. Aside from my father, neither have I.
I’m gay and originally American. I’m British now as well. I grew up in rural western Pennsylvania, think the Midwest not Philadelphia, before going to Cornell University in upstate New York and then moving to New York City where I spent ten happy years, many of them in the East Village, making wonderful friends and eating terrific food. Food is a passion – others are cycling swimming and jujitsu, to work off the food.
I moved to London for work a while ago and have made it my home. I’ve lived here long enough to make a bad habit out of mixing my British and Americanisms so please forgive any mix-ups in my writing. I like to refer to it as SIE, Standard International English.
This blogging thing is new to me so please bear with me, I’ll get better. Suggestions always welcome.
