Cinco de Mayo!

My days in England are packed like Londoners on a Tube train at rush hour, and hence I have not had as much time to write as I would like, to write. Here's a straightforward list of the past week's activities:
  • Running in Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park
  • Attending a production of Alphabetical Order at the Hampstead Theatre
  • Visiting the Science Museum and the National History Museum
  • Eating Gelato (some might not see this as note-worthy. I, of course, do.)
  • Visiting the Victoria and Albert museum
  • Attending the Museum of London
  • Attending the Banqueting House
  • Atteding Trafalgar Square
  • Attending the private opening of an art show at "Eleven;" the artist being a friend of mine
  • Seeing Big Ben (the real one this time. I knew it was real because it gonged on the hour)
  • Visiting Parliment and witnessing MPs debate a finance bill in the House of Commons and witnessing the House of Lords debate a health bill
  • Visiting St. Paul's Cathedral
  • Visiting Westminster Abbey
  • Attending Camden Yard
  • Attending the Table Tennis Masters Tournament at the Royal Albert Hall
  • Attending class

And it's only Thursday... It really is hard to pinpoint what my favorite thing was all week, but it was Parliment. The building was absolutely majestic, everyone was friendly and British, and the sessions were quite entertaining. Since this was a bit of a dry, torpid post, and not of much interest to anyone except my stalker Julia, then I will end it with some puns. Perhaps that will restore your faith in me. On second thought, it probably will not. Here goes: A dog gave birth by the side of the road and was cited for littering. A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall; the police are looking into it. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationary.
