Okay, so I was hit on today by a guy who works in the canteen at work (read: he's a low-paid cafeteria worker, who I don't think is even one of the cooks, he washes dishes), now not to knock menial labour, because I, myself, partake in low-end labour, but I feel I'm better than that. This guy is from Nigeria and whenever I'm chatted up by an African male my defenses immediately go up. Maybe this is unfair, maybe it's being racist, but I feel these guys here the North American accent and it doesn't matter if I'm from Canada or America, they see it as an opportunity. Maybe this is just me. I find the whole flirting thing really fake. For example, this guy says to me, can I get to know you better and he wants to add me to facebook. I say sure, because there's nothing on there that's really confidential. He sends me a pm and starts off saying "Hey sexy". Ummm, hello? I am not sexy. Pretty perhaps, cute maybe, but not sexy. I'm overweight and dumpy looking, especially since he's only ever seen me in my unflattering Madame Tussauds red t-shirt and black trousers. Anyways, this kind of interaction creeps me out. I have not added him back to facebook yet, and am debating whether I should.

That part aside, I've had a lot of fun with work people the past few days! Oh! Before I get into that...so the guy I like at work (who doesn't creep me out) totally flirted with me today...well, at least it could be construed as flirting. I like to think it's flirting. It made me happy! :)

Again, the top part of this post aside, I am so thankful for getting the Madame Tussauds job. It's allowed me to make real friends in London, and without I would be a thousand times more lonely!

This past Saturday I went to a girl at work's (Emma) housewarming/birthday party at her new flat. Since I had to work the next morning, I had planned on having two glasses of wine max and then heading home around 11-11:30pm. And then we started playing this drinking game which consisted of us moving a game piece around a board and taking tons of shots. So then I got quite drunk (there's evidence of this on facebook!) and ended up crashing at her flat and getting next to no sleep and being EXHAUSTED whilst working the next day! Oh well! It was totally worth it. I had an amazing time!!

Tonight, I went to a pub in Camden to hear a guy's band. The guy is Al who I also work with (he's young though, only 19! Although you wouldn't know it by talking to him, he seems pretty mature - and he's quite cute!!) I knew he was in a band and I wanted to see one of his gigs, so I've asked him before to tell me when his next London one is. Well, he told me today it was tonight. But it wasn't until 9:40pm, so I had time to go home after work and change and then still make it in plenty of time. I met Rachel there (yes, I called her, it seemed like her kind of thing, and I felt guilty because I semi-cancelled on her on Monday - semi because we never had definite plans, and never followed through, but cancelled because I never told her I was doing something else) anyways, it was fine, we didn't hang out for long since I have to work tomorrow morning. But Al's band was really good! Not really my kind of music (a bit too hard rock for my tastes) but they are talented, and I did enjoy them. So I would listen to their album because I know Al, but I would never buy it in a shop. But regardless, I had fun and am really glad I went! Plus, Al's so cute!! It's funny seeing him on stage though. Plus, him (and all of his bandmates) get REALLY into the songs and it's funny! Another guy from work, Jason, was also there with his girlfriend.

Tomorrow night I told Rachel I would go see a show at the Globe theatre with her. It's Romeo and Juliet, it's only £5 but it's standing room only. So I'd be at the back, standing. I don't know if I'm going to go. I want to go because I've never been to the Globe before, and I want to go see a show there, but I'm pretty tired and kind of want to spend the evening at home, watching American Idol. I don't know! What do you think???

Oh! And my sister is arriving on Saturday for her visit! Yayayayay! I'm really excited! I've been planning out our time together!!

ETA: Yeah, I could barely open my eyes this morning, so there's no way I can go to work and then STAND for 2.5 hours watching Shakespeare. Lazy night at home it is! I'll go to the Globe some other time and stand and watch a play.
