Anyways, my family's visit was great and I think they all had a very good time in London. ( My dad especially I think because he didn't have to use his phone or check his email for a week) Other that that I've just been hanging out with Nick in Reading and soaking up my last few weeks in good ole England. I'm definitely excited to come home and see all my friends, play with Brogan, eat Taco Bell, and have Digital Cable. Just not so ready to leave a certain someone just yet.
But the reason I decided to post again was because I was just informed of BREAKING NEWS.
Archie and Veronica are getting married! I am not happy about this because as an avid Archie comic book reader since about the age of eight, it has been clear to me that Betty is the girl for Archie.
And on another completely unrelated note...I saw this video of this little creature and thought I'd share. They talk about Pygmy Puffs in Harry Potter, and until I saw this video I thought they were just made up. I guess J.K. Rowling based them on these little guys.

And we wonder why obesity becomes a bigger problem everyday...
Sorry I haven't been updating much recently, I've been away since this past Thursday! But anyways I know there are lots to catch up on including filling you all in on my spring break adventures. That is a post I am too tired to write at the moment so I am just going to say I will update soon with pictures and all. (Although this could be hard considering I took about 450 pictures)
On a more sour note---Today was not the best day.
I missed my flight to Barcelona because of stupid buses, cabs, and trains. I wish I knew someone with a car who could drive me to the airport. Although missing my flight isn't the end of the world like my dad said. So after a day of whining, tears, and McDonald's to make me feel better, I am now over the fact that I will not be enjoying a holiday in Spain (Okay, not really I need to go eat some chocolate to make me feel better and fittingly enough---that chocolate is a Cadbury egg!)
Anyways, Happy Easter everyone! I hope it's full of peeps, easter egg hunts, and large fluffy scary bunnies trespassing in your backyard.

Anyways, we had a fantastic week! We went to the comedy store which is always so much fun, and we saw Wicked friday night. WOW!!! It was amazing, the sets, the COSTUMES!!, the singing, everything was phenomenal. the way they weaved in the Wizard of Oz (wicked is the prequel) was so clever and I highly suggest going to see it. I want to read the book now if I ever get the chance.
My parents were supposed to go while they were in NYC for the Big East but when they were walking to the show they realized their tickets were for Jersey Boys. (My guess is this is a mistake that should be blamed on ketel one and cranberry and crown royal)
Meanwhile, Car, Case, and Adam were in Marco visiting Nan and Pop and they looked like they had so much fun!! Saying I am extremely jealous is an understatement. Of course the first year since 7th grade everyone decides to go down to Marco is the one I can't go!
Hope everyone enjoyed their Spring Break :)

Nikki and I decided that we needed to take advantage of the rare bright blue sky and sun and walk around (which really means go shopping). So I dragged myself out of bed, put on my new favorite gray scarf and my way too expensive sunglasses that I haven't had too much a chance to wear, and took the tube to Oxford Circus.
Since we weren't exactly sure what we wanted to do first, we decided to get food because that is always a good idea. Because it was such a pretty day, we wanted to find a cafe where we could eat outside and admire the people walking along the sidewalks on London. We found a cute little Italian restaurant that we both have been saying we have to go to because it is right by one of our Westminster classes.
While we were sitting down waiting for our drinks (I ordered a Sprite and for some reason at Italian restaurants in London, Sprite=Lemonade, weird?) we were approached by an older fella looking for a piece of paper. Nikki had an old Burger King receipt so she gave it to him. Little did we know, he would return with a phone number written on it for "an overbooked single male model". Apparently this gent was a manager for the modeling company just around the corner and thought we would be a good match for his client. So, to call or not to call, that is the question.
Following our lunch, we went to HMV which is a massive DVD/CD store which has everything for really cheap. You can literally spend hours in there and they have every movie and CD you could ever want, besides Beauty and the Beast which is what I was looking for. It's probably in that damn Disney vault....speaking of: Why does Disney feel the need to do that?! We should be able to buy our childhood favorites at all times!
I purchased Harry Potter and the PHILOSOPHER's Stone (so British!) and Shakespeare in Love which I just watched and loved.
After going to Boots (like a big CVS) we were all shopped out and came back to good ole Lambeth North. I have just been cleaning my room and doing laundry while anxiously awaiting Kelly's arrival tomorrow morning! Then we leave for the Netherlands with Anthony and will meet Jessie, I can not wait.
