Art & Anglophilia

Nothing weighty here...just the musings of a girl trying to find the art in the ordinary

Post for 7/18/06

Holy crap, this was a busy day. We started off at the British Museum, then went to Covent Garden to shop, then to St. Martin-in-the-Fields (where we saw lots of adorable old English people having tea and scones), THEN to Harrod's. I showed Meredith the horrible Di and Dodi shrine (shown at left), and she wrote in the guestbook "this is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen". Hee hee. I followed suit by writing "what a disgrace....this belongs in a circus". Seriously, Di was sooo much classier than that. So later in the evening we went to a pub for a drink and were about to go on a trek to find some Cadbury Roses (our favorite candy that you can't get in the U.S.), but we got sidetracked by this hot Irish guy named Blake who just started talking to us in the dorm hallway. Turns out his parents have a B&B near where I studied in Ireland, AND he'd been the law school at the U of M, so we all had a lot to talk about. He was absolutely hilarious, and the three of us talked for about two hours! We're hoping he'll show up in the hallway again :).
