Last minute London adventures

I have not been updating my blog, and I'm sure it feels as weird for you to not be getting daily updates as it feels for me to not be MAKING daily updates.

I'm going to do a wrap up of my last week here in the UK soon, but right now I just wanted to write a short entry to assure everyone that I haven't died and that I am doing just fine.


Saturday Emma and I spent the night at j0ames's house (neither of us had any of our stuff, I never do that xD) and spent the entire night watching Derren Brown's film over and over where he tries to stick you to your chair. Emma was really skeptical and kept laughing during the film, but James and I were totally into it..... it didnt work on us, but Emma was CEMENTED into her seat. We tried again and then Emma couldn't BLINK. We kept clapping in front of her eyes and she wasn't blinking... you can't FAKE that!
It was actually a little scary, and James and I had to help her out of her seat when she started freaking out... but then we made her do it 6 more times because we're jerks and we were enjoying ourselves way too much.

We were trying all different ways of watching it to see if it would work on James and I, and finally on the 5th try we did it with the lights on and I got stuck as well. It was the weirdest sensation. I think James got this try on film too, so that might show up in a video on youtube. xD

Then we went into London to meet Johnny for his birthday, went with him, Tom Milsom, Eddplant, Cheeky Gary and Ashlee to a hardcore show, which had me cracking up because if my little brother knew I was at a gig listening to the kind of music I make FUN of him for listening to....

Anyway, after that, I was supposed to go back to Richmond to Rosi's and Emma was supposed to go home because she had school this morning, but it's among my last nights in London so we threw caution to the wind, and stayed in a hotel with Johnny. Again without ANY of my stuff. Who AM I? So I am wearing the same clothes over again, I used shampoo but no conditioner, I bought a toothbrush and a hairbrush at Sainsburys for about 3 pounds, and I'm loving my last few days here.

Who knows what adventures I'll end up having today?

Johnny Durham listens to hardcore? I can't believe it.

even though we're complete strangers it actually made me feel really happy to see that you're getting to enjoy yourself more now before you leave and that you're not feeling so down about things

Glad to hear you're enjoying your last few days. :)

I moved to London for uni yesterday; it's so scary! Enjoy your last couple of days. :)

I'm glad you're having a great time in England! I know the trips have had it's up's and downs. I can't find the video to "Glue me to my seat" yet but I'll give it a try if I find the video.

I'm so glad your last bit of time in London is going well!

I'll see you in Seattle soon! <3

I was worried! Sounds like you are having too much fun to blog so I suppose that's allowed. Just as long as you provide updates about all the fun you're having.

Can you please let me know the name of the Hostel you stayed at in Paris? I'm actually studying abroad at the same time as some of my friends and we were going to do some touring after that.

I think throwing caution to the wind and doing things without a plan turn out to be some of the most fun times a person can have. I'm glad you're enjoying your last few days, but I'll also bet you can't wait to get back home.

The northwest misses you! I know, because I asked it. =)

Take care!

It was kind of surreal to see you yesterday (I was the random girl in the queue who shouted "Happy Birthday Johnny!" I am that cool)

Glad to hear that things have been getting better for you :)

Rachael said...

Sounds like you are having a great last week :) I didn't realise Rosi lived in Richmond that's so strange I live about twenty minutes from Richmond. :)

maz said...

I wish I could travel the world like you do...

seurat2 said...

Wooo indeed. I'm so happy you're having a good time now. Hope there will be more adventures to come and a longer blog post when you get the time.
