When Jean-Marc left, he graciously allowed us to continue inhabiting his flat. So that is where we have been for the past few days.
On Thursday we took a short jaunt to Camden to check out the markets.
So. Many. Doc Martens.
There are not many articles of clothing that catch my interest, even fewer brands that I am partial to, but Doc Martens capture my fancy like no other. Anyways…I abstained from trading my kidneys and all illegal activities for the purpose obtaining a pair and we exited Camden to return once again to our market on Berwick. We purchased vegetables for dinner since we found ourselves in commandeership of a kitchen.
Our serendipitous friend Scott joined us for our meal and we returned to Half Moon (the lounge Jean-Marc where had taken us) for music. Unfortunately we missed out on the music, but we had a nice evening anyways. We posted an event plea on couchsurfing for a boat/penthouse/double-decker bus party to attend the following evening. The sole response to our quite witty posting was an invite to a beard-shaving party, which we attempted, but ultimately failed, to attend.
We did go out for fish & chips that night, again in the company of Scott. I found the meal enjoyable, if overpriced (we were recommended what we assume is the restaurant we tried by our Swiss fellow CSers). It happened to be the twenty-first birthday of said restaurant, and as such there were party hats at every table. Unfortunately the other Londoners/tourists who all seemed older than us refrained from joining in the Loch Fyne festivities. Scott, Christy, myself, a waitress with a cool Polish-Spanish accent, along with one other guest were the only ones wearing the party hats. And that is the story of my first encounter with fish & chips.
Christy and I were going to return home and watch a movie, but we ended up skyping with my ex/her current roommates. Which was far preferable in my opinion, though this now constituted our second day of failed-attempt movie watching.
And that brings me to today! I have caught up! Today was a chill day. we turned on Mumford and Sons and left the door open, we’ve left so far only to purchase food. We watched a movie, finally, and we are having PIZZA for dinner!!
