I love good English slang, don't you? I spent two months in London last summer and I just wanted to say everything they said. I told my friends I was going to pull a Madonna and come back sounding Phony-English-y. Maybe even go full-Eliza Doolittle.

I had dinner at a Cinema Drafthouse tonight – while watching Harry Potter 6! It’s the second time I’ve seen it. Have I mentioned that I’m head over heels for the Harry Potter books and movies? Yes, I am. I am in love with Ronald Weasley, the character and the actor who plays him.
Neville is my second favorite character. Anyway, um, what? Oh, the drafthouse. Yes, they serve you booze and food and you get to watch a movie on the cheap – $5.50! I just got water and that wrap, and my movie + food + tip was $17. I think for dinner and a movie that is pretty good.
I tried to not eat too many kettle chips, and I also picked out the small pieces. I would say I ate maybe 1/5 of the chips they gave me – there were a lot. I’d say at least a cup and a half? Maybe two? You do the math on those fractions, haha. I’m BSing it anyway.
I went to the track today! I did three miles. Out of the 12 laps, 2 were full walking, 2 were full jogging, and the rest were a combo of jogging/walking – sometimes I ran just the straights, or the curves, or just one of the curves or straights. I was definitely worn out from it!
I had to try and shrink my jeans again today. And tonight I wore one of the pairs to the movie tonight – they’re now too loose in the waist. Grrr. Haha, but it’s a happy grrr, isn’t it? I just hope I can get away with them for another month or so until I can properly fit into those 18s. We shall see, time will tell, etc etc.
