Here I am a week later and this is the soonest I can get my hands on some sweet sweet internet. I can't be arsed to fully detail out everything that's been going on but here's some bullet points to get you through:
- I like the phrase "can't be arsed"
- Two trips out to London this past week. Once on Tuesday to watch The Subways and a weekend trip to meet up with Alana's friend Sita.
- The concert was great, it was held in a theatre that reminds me of the San Diego Spreckels theater but much nicer and bigger. The lead singer did a lot of crowd surfing and balcony jumping and the audience just loved it. Afterwards I was really craving a burrito but the people I went with wanted, of all things, Burger King. If you ever come to visit here, don't go to Burger King. It's awful. My onion rings had onions of questionable onion-y value.
- The weekend trip was also very fun, but it made me glad that I'm not living in London straightaway. It's so crowded and hectic!! But the shopping...ohhh the shopping. Dangerously sweet and dangerously expensive. I plan on doing a Just for the Girls post and that will go more into juicy detail. In the evening I went to a couple of bars and they were just as I imagined it. The loud bar was full of punk rocky degenerates and financial guru wannabes and the smaller quiet bar was very "posh". It was awesome.
- Stil haven't found a place to live.
- The curry here is very good.
- The beer is not as warm as people complain, I like it just fine. I recommend John Smith.
- The rudest people I have run into are Americans. Last night at 1 am I woke up to the sound of some drunk pounding on my neighbor's door and yelling about something. I wanted to open the door and tell him to fuck off but when I looked through the keyhole I saw that he was very fat with a ponytail and reminded me of a Hell's Angel and ended up calling the front desk about it. Really guys, we can do better.
- The second rudest person was a British woman I saw at breakfast. She was really snotty about the free breakfast and instead of just asking for things, she was really condescending saying things like, "My breakfast is cold. Do you think it's at all possible to have hot eggs?" and muttering rude comments to her wimpy husband the whole time. I don't know about here, but if I were her and this was back in the states, I would probably not have dared eat anything from the kitchen after that because I'm sure there would have been some extra special ingredients added in just for her.
- I am very tired of eggs for breakfast.
There's more to say but it's getting late and I have to take a wee so I can't be arsed right now. Be back in a mo'.
