So I went out with Rachel today. For the most part I had a good time. But omg, some of the things she says...she can be so ditzy and clueless! She took us a crazy long way to her flat from Holborn because she doesn't know her area, because she doesn't explore. Okay, so I don't know my area well, but I live in crap Brixton. She lives in Covent Garden which is non-sketchy and full of lovely places! It's cold out today (okay, not as cold as Toronto which was under an extreme cold alert, but it felt cold!) and she was wearing tights (a lurid hot pink - if I was with Amanda and we saw her on the street we would mock her forever) and a jersey top that she thinks is a dress, but it's not really long enough. And all she did was complain that she was cold. Well, maybe if you dressed warmer...also her visa expires at the end of April and she's talking about trying to stay, etc. And she started talking about an Entertainers visa, which I had never really heard of before. She said it would allow her to audition for things, work as an actor, and live in the UK, etc. And she said she would be able to get it without a sponsor. Little does she know of course. I looked it up and she would need a sponsor, and an offer of work. She also seems to think that she could work at another job while auditioning (although really she can't be auditioning anyways, she already needs a job) and she can, but only 20 hours a week in a related field. Although, she may be able to go around that, because you don't tell anyone that you're working, so I'm sure no one would bother to check that you're sticking to the 20 hours/week. But it just bothers me when she's all high and mightly about things she knows nothing about. It was all bad though. She introduced me to some good Indian food. Which one day I hope to be able to afford! And she invited me to Amsterdam with her and her new boyfriend. But they're going at the end of April, and I don't think I'll be able to afford it, nor get the time off of work. And I've been there before, so I'm not that bothered by it. I want to visit home more!! Speaking of holidays though, I must take time and talk to my manager tomorrow about my vacation time. I need to book off February, March, and April! At some point I need to be able to afford a ticket back to London too. It's expensive right now though...

I heard from my flatmate/landlord (landlady?) yesterday and she's coming back in about a week. :( I've enjoyed having the place to myself! But I guess it's time to get used to sharing again.
