Hello everyone who's reading this blog! You may be wondering, what exactly is Shana up to? The answer is, she is traveling around the UK. And talking in third person, apparently. Anyway, we flew in Sunday night/Monday morning. We didn't actually sleep on the plane. And the hotel didn't have our rooms ready at first. So we gave them our stuff and wandered around London half-asleep. We hung out at the National Gallery and I entertained Mother with the stories that inspired the paintings. She hadn't known most of them. She says she's never had that much fun in a museum before. Clearly, they should hire me to write those audio tour thingies.
We attempted to explore the Tate Modern and the Globe Theater, but the first didn't have anything in the big room to look at and we were too tired to go up to look at the photo exhibits and such, and the second we could only go into with a tour. Or a play, but nothing was showing that wasn't sold out on the days we were in town. So we ate lunch and went back to the hotel. I read for a while, managing not to fall asleep mainly because Artemis Fowl is utterly AWESOME. I've said it before and I will not stop saying it. I love that series. I'm not sure how critically good it is, but damn, I can't get enough of it!
Then we went to the Mac store to get a converter for my power chord and ate dinner. At this point I was pretty much in a daze. We went home and I fell asleep pretty quickly at 8:30ish.
Then we slept for twelve hours. Well, on and off.
Today we wandered around Leichester Square and hung out in Forbidden Planets comic store. My mother wouldn't let me buy anything because it's cheaper in the US. Hmph, I say. Hmph! I wanted to buy a comic book in England! Blah. Then we walked back to St. James' Park and read and ate lunch in the grass. So many people were picnicing! I thought about Good Omens. We had ice cream. I'm leaving very soon to hang out in a flea market and hopefully get a new necklace. Then we're going to Spamalot! Hooray!
