Sunday was London's annual Curry Festival at Brick Lane. I really do love that neighborhood. It's filled with vintage shops, indian restaurants, and cheap baegels. We walked around there for a few hours, freaking out about how delicious the foods smelled, how interesting the people were, and how lovely the stall merchandise was. I bought a giant fluffy pork dumpling, spiced Moroccan vegetables with cous cous, and a Guarana (a popular Brazilian soda that I became addicted to during my summer in Sao Paolo circa 2001). SO DELICIOUS!!!
Monday I was sick. Just a little 24 hour cold. But regardless, I spent the entire day drinking orange juice, stuffing my face with food, and watching Skins. This show is basically Britain's answer to Degrassi. Full of drama and ridiculousness. I watched seasons 1 & 2 during winter break, after my cousin Emma introduced it to me. Seasons 1 & 2 are brilliant. The cast was fabulous and the characters were tragic and beautiful. Season 3 is nothing compared to the amazingness of it's predecessors. You can watch all 4 seasons on youtube for free and I recommend everyone do so.
Tuesday I felt better. So after doing my homework and skyping with Adam, I dolled myself up and went for a walk. The weather was SOOOO sunny and lovely. I walked down High Street Kensington and browsed the shops. There was a sale at Claire's so I bought a bejeweled headband for £3. I also splurged a little bit on a new pair of headphones. The thing with this purchase though, is that it was a necessity. In the last year, my 2 best pair of headphones have broken. I also have little baby mouse ears, which don't fit the stadard sized headphones that Apple practically gives away like candy. I had been borrowing Christine's headphones, but they really just hurt too much to always have to use. And so, this purchase was a necessity. Unfortunately, I could only find one place on my whole 2 hour long walk that sold headphones: Urban Outfitters. And that meant that my headphones were expensive. Stylish! but, expensive.
(Behold, the purchases of the day!)
Now I am sitting in the common room, eating my microwavable Indian food (cauliflower, fennel, potatoes, tomatoes, in a spicy saag sauce) and browsing the internet. Good day.
