When we get there, we're gonna fly so far away

So, my cough isn't gone yet. The only night that I've actually slept through is the night that I went to bed drunk. I don't think I like that because I don't drink very often, so I'm not going to get to sleep a full night for a long time! Last night, I went to bed at 3 (whoops!) and didn't fall asleep to well past 5. *sigh* I hope some day I don't cough through the night.

Anyway, this week has been good. Here are some happenings:
Saturday night, we celebrated Scott's birthday (Kirsli's boyfriend). We went to The Elephant's Head in Camden, and it was tons of fun. They were playing all the music that I loved as a child: basically ever song from my cassette tape called "Chartbusters: Hits from the 50's."

Today, I woke up, had a relaxing breakfast, and went to the British Library to sign up for a library card there. It took a long time, but the guy who helped me was super nice. He asked where I was from, and when I said Georgia, he knew where it was! Impressive. He's the first Brit that I've met who knew where GA is. I mean, that's not bad, cuz if they asked me where Liverpool is, I couldn't say... Anyway, I complimented him on his knowledge of America, and he said "Well, I am a librarian." Hehehe

This week, I have a couple things which I am really looking forward to. On Wednesday, one of my classes is going to be at the Fashion and Textile Museum where we are going to have a tour and talk with the curator of the Bill Gibb exhibition, which is going to be really interesting! Then, on Thursday, I am meeting up with my friend Theresa, and we are going to go to the National Portrait Gallery, and then eat Mexican food!
