Never took a punch in the ribcage sonny?

Today I went home and took a nap instead of attending my strategic writing class – these early mornings are really getting to me (I am such a wuss puss). Anyways, since I was overly sleepy from staying up late blogging studying, I was more annoyed than usual. The radio was especially bothersome – all the shit music and adverts they play, forced me to drive in silence for most of my commuting. But tonight, when I got in my car to head to J’s house to watch the latest episode of Dexter, I opened a CD case I thought had Mylo Xyloto in it – but instead had the mix CD my flatmate David made me while we were living in London together. He made me the CD a few weeks before we left, and I listened to it constantly…riding the tube to work, eating lunch on Holborn, walking through Russell Square to school, and even while drifting asleep at night.

Before I left on my grand adventure to Londontown, everyone would tell me that moving there was going to be life changing and that I was going to have the most amazing time – and it wasn’t until I got home, and the dust settled and life went on as normal, that I realized that I miss the rain, and carrying groceries home from Waitrose, and wandering the streets of little Arabia.

My childlike sense of wonder


Today whilst out on my lunch break I broke down (yet again) and went souvenir shopping. Upon returning to work I confessed to Rima (one of my fellow colleagues) of my slight souvenir shopping addiction and may have slightly hinted that I needed to cut up my debit card before another “I love London” sweatshirt was purchased.

Anyways, tonight when I got home Kyle wanted to run to the big souvenir shop right off of Marble Arch and Oxford Street so of course I went with him. And who did I run into in this souvenir shop?


What a small, hilarious world.



p.s. here are a few tunes from the mix cd my flatmate David made me:
