I wish I was able to update yesterday because...
I've been living in England for exactly one month!
The time has just flown by.
Unforseen complications in billing addresses have come up due to my move to another country and Bank of America being complete idiots about address formatting so my Typepad account was suspended for awhile.
I had so much to share and blab about but now I'll have to resort to bullet points because I just can't be arsed to go into details.
"Can't be arsed" is currently my favorite saying here. It's so eloquent and gets the point across without getting personal. It says "it isn't because of you that I will not go out and party, I just cannot be arsed right now."
Recent UK adventures include:
- I am thrilled to have found better than just decent asian food at Wagamama and only 5 minutes walk away! Mexican food is still alluding me. I should really just give up and just gorge on it whenever I take a trip back to the states.
- I found a knitting group! I spent a really nice evening with them knitting away while munching on scones and drinking tea. For reals, you can't make this shit up folks.
- I'm still getting used to the fact that our fridge is about the size of the one I used to have in my college dorm. As a result, I'm going grocery shopping about 4 times a week.
- They have really good cheese here and I've become a lot more adventurous with my sandwich making. My latest obsession is made up of: watercress, spinach, and rocket greens, some sort of English cheddar (white not orange) and some sort of carrot or cranberry compote (ie chunky jam). YUMMERS! Food blog to be updated by next month as soon as I get my kitchen supplies and camera cable. In the meantime, you guessed it, I can't be arsed.
- This past weekend I made another trip to London to watch Maximo Park at Brixton Academy. Both the band and the venue were bloody brilliant.
- TopShop is madness. A heavenly, overwhelming, confusing, sublime, madness.
- But for all the hype of TopShop, my current favorite designer that I've come across is All Saints, which I discovered at Selfridges. I want to make a special effort to visit their store in Soho.
- I've tried about 5 different kinds of English beer and so far, I have to admit that I love Guiness best.
Still no proper pictures, but I do have one from my phone that I took this weekend in London:
Wish you were here!
