I'm listening to: The Pussycat Dolls- Don't Cha

Just so everyone knows! I'm having a really good time now, after that miniture breakdown of mine on the first day here anyway. By being my sociable self I've managed to find about 10 friends/ acquaintences to hang around with, all really cool people.

So let's see... I suppose I'll give a rundown of what I've been up to the past few days. Day 1 I woke up to this old married couple on the plane arguing, ate my breakfast, and then graceously was allowed off the plane, took a train from Gatwick to Victoria and looked around for Fry and Scott. It's funny I thought I'd have a harder time spotting them but they stuck out pretty well. We had a nice easy day after that, which was much needed by this jet lagged American. Went to Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace and just generally walked around till I could check into my hostel which is like.. Right next to Kings Cross, where there IS a platform 9 3/4! Such a photo op. ^_-

Day 2 Got up early had breakfast, met up with this girl named Sarah who goes to UCLA, went with her to find her hotel, met up with Fry at Picadilly, bought an England football shirt, ate lunch at this great little pizza place, hung around Covent Garden with Fry looking at the varrious shops. One of which, David and Goliath, looked like something I would come up with, lots of sushi related things ect. There was also this little market called Jublie that had tons of stalls around with cheap hippy style skirts and such. Pretty much all for that day.

Day 3 Asked around to see if anyone wanted to go out in the evening... found about 10 girls who's responce to that was "hellz yes!" Went out that morning and did some touristy things Westminster Abby, Parliment, Big Ben all that kind of thing. Then went to wonder around looking for something to wear only the shops around here apparently close at 6... so I ended up with a mix of borrowed clothes and my own stuff in the end. Some guys ended up following us out of the hostel when they found out we were going though the group got so big that none of us could decide where to go. Half of us went to Piccadilly and half to Covent I think... I couldn't honestly tell you where my group went. It was me, Alex (this Canadian girl), some Israli girl who's name I can't remember, a girl from Pennslyvania, Catherine (don't remember where she's from though she speaks french), and very randomly Matt from Cali.

So we went to this nice bar, didn't catch the name of it, and hung out drank a few and Israel, Pennsylvania and I stupidly danced in the middle of it all till these Northern Welsh guys we were chatting with sugested a club up the road. Went there, drank a few more shots and danced till pretty late. My only complaint were some really roudy Brazillians there who kept grabbing at me and Israel. They got out of hand with me for a moment there but thankfully Phillip, one of the Welsh guys, noticed and came over to help me out. Really nice guys they were, probably won't see them again, though Alex hit it off with the one really well so we might hang out with them again.

Day 4- Went to Barnet to meet up with Fry and some of his friends at a pub up there. I got to meet Callum and Clair who were both really nice. Hopefully I didn't make any weird kind of impression. But anyway today we're supposed to pick up Sohi at the airport and go to his house to hang out so I probably should get working on that.

Yup so I'll update every few days I suppose. It costs a quid an hour to get online so I'm slowly weaning myself from it. I've also got TONS of photos which I'll share when I get home and you'll all probably smile and nod and want to kill me by the end of it. But you're gonna smile anyway damn it! XD

My Ipod is whiter than yours.

I'm listening to: Hollywood Undead- Scene for Dummies

Let's see.. today I worked mooore. Afterward I drove down to the movies and hit up bed bath and beyond for some uber sexy towels with John while I waited for Jason. I think I may have to go back there when it's time to do dorm moving in, they had some cute things AND a poster holder big enough for my beautiful Shaun of the Dead crowing glory!

Then went to see The Da Vinci Code which was pretty true to the storyline save one or two things.. I do think they missed out on alot of the suspence that could have been used though. Or it might just be one of those things that you just have to read. Either way I enjoyed it!

Thankfully it wasn't raining on the way home.. I can deal with rain durring the day but at night... eh stretching it majorly. (Note-I still havn't fixed my windshield wiper. >.<)

So yup good day, and tomorrow I get a haircut! Yays! Photos will follow as you can be sure I'll cam whore. ^_~

Riddle me black.

Your eye juice is a turn on. ^_~

I'm listening to: Nickelback- Someday

Hum.. 13 days left. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I've been so busy lately that I havn't really had a chance to think about it. Yesterday I went downtown to pay my taxes on the car... I got lost alot because apparently I can't read directions and drive at the same time. It actually didn't take me as long as I thought it would to do, there were only about 7 people in the line so it was about a half hour to do the whole thing, though I had to go find a bank in between the two lines so that stretched it to about an hour. Still not too bad.

Afterward I went to the mall to pick up this shirt mom insisted that I get for the photos (which were today) I was VERY happy to find that it'd gone on sale from 52 to 22 since last week, seriously good luck there. Then I meet up with John in Game Stop where they had this awesome sale on anime and bought DVD's 1-5 of Gatekeepers and Spriggan for 13 bucks. We went to eat after and then decided to get Sarah which led to us getting Diana, some pizzas and renting a movie. We watched Domino Harvey, I thought it was pretty decent. It was done differently than most movies but I liked it, made me think a bit.

Today we all had to get up early to do the photos and then we went out to eat and to Target so mom could drag us around for a good hour so she could buy ONE thing. It's nice having a car which you really realize when you're stuck doing things like that, course I didn't drive she did so it didn't really help in that instance.

So came home, played some wow.. got my ass kicked with Diana in Silverpine and then um.. yeah that was it. I may be going to see The Omen with Daniel tonight but I'm still debating as I don't know if I want to spend money on that movie... it really looks like a hit or miss, and I'm leaning towards a miss.

Sign says "Trolls are undenyably the sexiest race. <3 Aiden"

I've gone to alot of movies lately anyway.. Took Meg to Over the Hedge, saw X3 with Daniel (awesome movie btw) and hum.. well I guess that's all I've seen lately. I'm pretty much just waiting for Pirates of the Caribbean to come out now not much else I can think of that's comming out this summer. You know what I miss? I miss the good Disney movies. You know back in the day when they made actual cartoons with a good non-cheesy, non-comical, non-bad CG story.

Well.. that's about it for me. I'll be working all the rest of this week till the 14th then it's a haircut and packing and more work till the 16th or 17th havn't decided yet, and then I'll be out on the 19th. So yeah... not quite nervous yet but I think I'm getting there.

Gets to be a star.
