I had a fun night last night. I went to a play (my friend Rachel works at the theatre and got me a free ticket). It was called 'Fat Pig', it was a comedy...it was only okay. Not super funny. It didn't get good reviews when it opened either. But hey, it was free. Then Rachel and I met her friend Pasquel (he's German) and his friend Oliver and we went to some bar in Kensington and had what they call a 'Flaming Ferrari'. It was VERY potent. Probably like 4-5 ounces of pure alcohol. They pour most of it in a martini glass, light it on fire, you stick a straw in and chug it as they pour another shot of something in. Then I drank tons of water. It made me VERY drunk. Then we did a shot of tequila (luckily Pasquel is rich - according to Rachel - and paid for it all). Then we went in search for food, went to a Morrocan place that had nargillas (hookahs). It's just flavoured tobacco that you smoke through a big bong type thing. We had some wine and some food. It was very fun!! Of course I was crazy drunk by this time...Eventually I stumbled (and I do mean stumble) back to the hostel safe and sound. And I'm not hung over today! So yay for that!!
Tomorrow I'm (finally!) moving into my new flat!! Thank goodness!! I finally found one I hope I'll be happy with. The douwnside it's in Brixton (read: not great area) but it's close to the tube, the place is really nice, and it's on a quiet street. I'm sharing just with one other (the owner) who said she's away a lot. She has a bf in nyc and apparently goes for months at a time. She also has a car and is coming to pick me (and all my crap) tomorrow morning. So that's good!! It's a small (really small) double room, and my closet is outside of the room, because there's no room for a wardrobe in the room - but there is a big thing of shelves. There's also a big lounge with a tv and sky (satellite tv for non-uk folk!) And of course wireless internet. There's two couches which are perfect for overnight guests too! So people can come visit me!! This means you [Bad username or unknown identity: scattydove!! I'm now going to meet two of my mother's friends who live in the UK and meet in London every so often to catch up. We're going for a drink and then to see Spamalot. Which I've seen in Toronto, but they had a convenient early evening show time. Alright, hope everyone is well!]
