Hey, my lovelies in other lands and other occupations. I'm not dead in a London gutter, just very busy. The coursework has kept us constantly on the road, so we're never around. We went to a bird reserve in Suffolk today and saw the ocean for the first time in three weeks! Granted, it was the North Sea and it was pouring rain and blowing a gale, but still. Ocean! I think our guide thought we were insane. We're just missing our marine habitat.
In other news, it's been raining since early last week, and I think I have trench foot. My sneakers haven't been dry since Wednesday.
This weekend we went to London, where we were terribly productive. Friday night, Rebecca and I went with her parents to see Hay Fever, the Noel Coward play starring Judi Dench. The play was hilarious, the seats were awesome, and then we did a runner through the rain to the Ivy, where we had dinner at a very Spanish hour (midnight). Best food ever.
Saturday, we went to the National Gallery and I saw The Fighting Temeraire! Glee! Sunday, Rebecca, Brianna and I went to Spitzfield / Spittlefield / Spitfeld (something to do with Spit) Market near Liverpool Street. It's part of the old garment district, so it's all clothes and textiles and jewelry and is very cool. Then we went to the Tower of London and suggested that if they had any crowns that they weren't using (there were lots of spares), we'd take them off their hands. Who knew Beefeaters carried AK-47s under their hats?
And we were totally going to go see the Da Vinci Code in Leicester Square last night, but it was sold out. So we had to go see The Crazy Man in MI-3. But it was actually good! I swear! Much better than the second one.
Ugh. I have 2 fieldbook entries to write up and I'm out of Jack Daniels. Lassie, send help.
