- hanging around drinking lathany's coffee and lazily talking about Things and arguing about credit cards with bateleur
- acting as a climbing frame for two extremely engaging two-year-olds
- watching the first three episodes of Alias, which i had never seen
- having lunch with a charming curator at the Imperial War Museum (who happens to be a slasher)
- having dinner with an equally charming classicist from St. Hilda's (who also happens to be a slasher. my fandom has INTELLEKSCHULS.)
- going to Selfridge's and getting a proper bra fitting from a terrifying lady. scene:
Selfridge's Lady: *gazes critically at my bosom, names a size*It was like $60, but I bought the damn bra. and I have to admit, it fits like nothing i have ever worn.
Me: Oh, no, that can't be right, the one I'm wearing is *names much different size*
SL: And it looks horrendous.
- accidentally walking a gazillion miles to my Oxford B&B (read three, but that's a lot given that i am very very lazy)
- going to my beloved Tesco's,although i was crushed to discover that they have discontinued my favorite mushroom-and-marscapone pasta sauce
- soaking up the vast zen-y indifference of the Icelandair employees. i have this theory that they're just a leeeeetle bitter about whoring out Reyjkavik for the pleasure of America and the rest of Europe.
- coming home to my waggy dog and sweet-smelling girlfriend and feeling like no matter how much fun i had i never, ever want to leave again.
there was something else.. what was it?
attending the nuptial festivities of triskellian and smiorgan!
the ceremony was entirely reflective of the bride and groom: warm, unpretentious, and full of love. a wonderful affair on many different levels. i'm so glad i was able to be there. and triskellian was just adorable later in the evening wearing her big ballgown skirt and a tight black t-shirt (after the gown bodice exploded)...
the ceremony provoked a fair number of Deep Thoughts about marriage, but i'll leave those for another post, as they really have no place in this one.
in other news:
anyone know anyone who's an actuary?
