By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Had a good halloween. The Generator Hostel is an awesome place. They have a pub/club right in the place. Open until 2 am. There was a big Halloween Bash there last night... lots of people came in costume. I went as Backwards Man ! Which entailed me wearing all my clothes backwards.
So anyways, Gavin was coming to London yesterday from Oxford. I read that on his blog and that was all I knew. He said he was coming in at 1:40. So I was kind of annoyed. I'm in London, and I have a friend who's in London but no means to contact them.
But it was ok. I'd already made some friends at the hostel. There was Brian the former US Marine who served in Bosnia, and there was Marjolaine the university student from France. So at least I knew some people, and it wasn't that bad.
Early last night I was chilling in the turbine, which is basically the TV and eating room area; waiting for my laundry to finish. I got bored of watching some British talk show, so I decided to go to the reading room area. I walk around the corner and who do I see reading a brochure about Toronto Hostelling, none other than Gavin.
It caught me off guard. I did not expect to see someone I knew from Toronto randomly in London. Apparently he had read on my site that I would be staying at The Generator so he decided to go there.
Later, we decided to check out the town and find a good pub. We found a pub about 15 minutes away from the Hostel. However we somehow managed to get lost. Really lost. I said "Oh we'll just take this street back to the Hostel!" After two hours walking in the rain with no jacket we finally found the hostel.
Went back to the Generator bar, and a good time was had by all.
Today we just walked around London, making asses of ourselves on Gavin's digital camera. Scaring pigeons, giving colour commentary on various amusing things, ah technology.
