Assuming everything has worked out, congratulations and enjoy the rest of the week sight seeing (or sleeping while Andi is out of the room and not snoring)!

I don't understand why you lied, but hopefully the messages of congratulations are simply premature and not wasted. Best of luck with your attempt.

So he tweeted something to the effect that they'd broken the record, despite not having actually attempted it at the time?

Yes, that appears to be the case. Unless he was telling the truth and is now lying to us.

I'm struggling to know why he would bother saying he had done it when he hadn't, as if we were all going to be going out on the same day to try to beat him.
