We both looked darling, if I do say so myself, and the pancakes and tea were delicious. They were thinner than our pancakes but not as thin as crepes, and they were wrapped around bacon! So good. We sat there talking for 2 hours. It was so nice. I love the little moments I have to spend with Hilary. How sad that I wont have very many more of them.
The orchestra was great. It was such a nice relaxing experience to listen to the music and let my mind wander. It made me miss being in orchestra a little. But on the way home I took the wrong train twice - two times. I ended up in this really dodgy train station in East London and felt very uncomfortable, standing there in my pearls and fine attire. I did finally get the right train home safely.
Many LDS girls I know here are celebrating Lent. I usually do, just as an excuse to give something up and test my will power. This year I'm giving up meat, and I'm going to try to not indulge myself and eat smaller portions. Kiri is also giving up meat, and I don't think Katherine had decided what to do at this point.
My former French 102 teacher Irene Kim was in town for the evening. I met up with her at Trafalgar square and we went to institute where we socialized until nearly 11p. It was really good to see her. And I really enjoyed hanging out and talking with her. I wanted to let her sleep in my bed, but she took the floor, and I felt like a poor host. But since I had to leave early for school she just took my bed when I left. I don't think she was technically allowed to stay the night, but no one was hurt by her presence and I was happy to give her a place to stay that was free.
To make it all even better, on my way to Paddington station to meet up with David, I was bumped trying to go through the ticket barrier and dropped my cake. Yes. I dropped it. It was still edible, but completely destroyed. I wanted to cry. It was a frustrating ending to a frustrating cake.
I fed pidgeons and a rat some of the scraps of my cake. I wanted to feed the squirrels, but they weren't interested.
I fed the swans and the geese. They were very interested in my cake. I was a bit afraid of being bitten, so it made the whole experience a bit more fun. Plus, I looked super cute today. It's an unrelated topic, but it was definitely a plus. As well as the absolutely gorgeous and warm day. I didn't need a jacket until it was dark!
David and I walked around the gardens until about 7 when we met up with Angus and ate at a Thai Buffet. It was pretty good, definitely only worth the £5 though. Then we all went back to Angus' house for Arrested Development, The Mighty Boosh, and Yes Man. I didn't leave until 2.15a, and the buses were really terrible tonight and I didn't get home until nearly 3.30a! Rubbish.
