Last night in London Town…lets make it one for the books.

Internet, I am leaving London tomorrow. In less than 24 hours I will be flying back to America. I am harboring a range of emotions; I am sad to leave my cozy little life here in Kensington, but I’m excited to see my family soon. I will miss the tube, tesco, passing Royal Albert Hall on my way to Harrods. Oh how I will miss you Harrods. I’m probably going to end up doing a whole post in a few weeks just listing all of the things I miss about life in London. But for now, I am just going to have a wonderful last night. So it may be a few days before I post again.

Peace easy London. Its been grand.

Just another reason why I don’t want to leave.

I will miss conversations like this.

Roommate: “I MISS MY PHONE! I am going to be so stoked to text on a real phone when I get home. Except my mom totally got on to me and I’m not allowed to text and drive.”

Me: “That sucks.”

Roommate: “They need to invent a device that allows me to speak my texts.”

Me: “Um I think they already have. It’s called a phone call.”

Ladies and Gents, I now present to you…

A list, in no certain order, of ten characters (read: not actors) from the telly I would fall in love with.

1. The Ultimate Family Man

jason bateman

Michael Bluth from Arrested Development (Played by Jason Bateman)

If there is one thing in the world I really truly look for in a guy, as material girl as this sounds, it is how he is dressed. And Michael Bluth does not disappoint. I mean, the khakis and the button down shirts with the rolled up sleeves- yummm. But I digress. I could fall in love with him because he is always there for his family even though they continue to treat him like crap no matter how many times he bails them out of whatever situation they find themselves in. Because he is all nice like that. Also, he has a weird sense of humor that I love, love, love.

2. The Other Best Friend

dawsons creek

Pacey Witter from Dawson’s Creek (Played by Joshua Jackson)

Oh my. Pacey Witter- how much do I love thee? Let me count the ways… Since the first episode I was all about the Pacey and not about the Dawson. Pacey is the fun one, doesn’t take things too seriously (which I sometimes tend to do) and he once had a rather intimate relationship with his high school English teacher, so the guy has taste. During the time he is dating Joey he manages to make the perfect relationship look ridiculously easy and the exact opposite of cheesy. Dare I say it, for I might immediately regret it, I believe Pacey is my favorite of this list. Just the way he cares about Joey and treats her like a princess… okay, I’ll stop. Insert extremely girlish sigh here.

3. The Lovable Lawyer

marshall

Marshall Eriksen from How I Met Your Mother (Played by Jason Segal)

Marshall Eriksen is one of the cutest guys on tv that I have ever seen. He has that sense of humor that I love so much and always makes me smile. He puts up with Ted and all of his constant whining about finding true love. He puts up with Barney and his constant whoring about. He puts up with Robin and her… well nothing really wrong with Robin. But he loves his wife Lilly more than anything and would do anything for her, no matter the cost. He even took a job at a big corporate law firm, though it went against everything he stands for, all to bring home money for his family. Okay, so Lilly may have gotten into extreme credit card debt, but that would so never happen to me. (Really mom, you can stop laughing now.)

4. The Adorable Coworker

Jim

Jim Halpart from The Office (Played by John Krasinski)

QUESTION: Who is the most adorable office worker out there right now? FACT: Jim Halpart. If you did not know that this guy would be on my list, then you do not know me at all. Jim is the ideal boyfriend. He is a great dresser. He notices the details (Pam’s favorite yogurt- mixed berry), isn’t afraid to risk getting in trouble torturing Dwight to make you laugh, and has the best Halloween costumes (3 hole punch anyone?)  You just have to give him about two-three years to confess his love for you, but after that your all good.

5. The Amusing Fiance

cpt awesome

Captain Awesome from Chuck (Played by Ryan McPartlin)

Captain Awesome is just plain…. awesome. He is so sweet and always offers a word of advice, no matter how dumb it may sound. He lives with his fiancee and her brother, which he is always glad to help out no matter what task is before him. The fact that this guy passed his medical exams is amazing, but that is what makes this character even better. I sometimes, more often than not, find myself attracted to the “dumb blonds” as they are just generally more fun to talk to because the things that they say humor me. The fact that Captain Awesome is not just a pretty face and mean jock is great because just when you think he is going to harass the geeky Chuck he says the sweetest things. I loves it.

6. The Emotionally Crippled Doctor

house

Dr. Gregory House from House M.D. (Played by Hugh Laurie)

Okay, I know what you are thinking. And yes, I am serious. I mean, he will probably find some way to self destruct the relationship within a year (tops) but it would have been a fun year of being sarcastic and being glib and me trying to help him overcome whatever deep rooted issues he has with life . We both have an attachment to white boards so we could always put a huge one up in the house and he could write doctor things and I could write teacher things on it. Oh and since I am constantly taking meds for my back there would be no tension with his drug addiction because we would just take our pills at the same time. Simple as that.

7. The Comic Obsessed Narcissistic Nerd

seth

Seth Cohen from The O.C. (Played by Adam Brody)

I finally made my choice between Ryan and Seth. It was a tough decision internet, I can’t lie to you. While I am attracted to Ryan physically and the fact that he is always there to save whatever damsel in distress he finds, I am going to have to say that Seth’s personality plays a large part and it is just something I couldn’t live without. He is happy about 97% of the time, always cracking jokes and stuff. And remember all that stuff about how a guy dresses? Seth is such a snazzy dresser. The only drawback is his narcissistic side, but I live with a narcissistic sister (hey hey Rubi) so I think I could handle things a lot easier that most girls.

8. The Backwards Baseball Cap Flannel T-Shirt Wearing Diner Owner

luke danes

Luke Danes from Gilmore Girls (Played by Scott Patterson)

Lets just start out by saying if I was Lorelai Gilmore there would not even be a Luke vs. Christopher story line because Luke would win every single time. He is dependable, and would be there in a second if I needed him just like he has been all seven years of the show (minus the whole Christopher thing, but like I said, that wouldn’t be an issue). He has an odd sense of humor and when he was ordering his fishing gear he would totally order me a pair of rain boots just because I wanted them. Because he knows what true love is.

9. The Irish Mobster

john t

Tommy Donnelly from The Black Donnellys (Played by Johnathan Tucker)

I have always had a fascination with people from the mob. I love it; their lives are just so fantastic. Tommy Donnelly sort of fell into the position of the Irish mob leader when he had to defend his family against those other mobster guys. Sure he killed some people, but the job had to be done, and a small part of him does always feels a tiny bit guilty. I think it’s safe to say he would go to great lengths to protect his family, which I find rather important.

10. The Stereotypical Idiotic Football Playing Jock

van

Van Montgomery from Reba (Played by Steve Howey)

Van Montgomery is my guilty pleasure. Sure his parents kicked him out of the house when they discovered he impregnated his girlfriend while they were still in highschool. And okay, he had to live with his mother in law and his pregnant teenage wife while they finished school. But he was fun, so very fun. And he was the typical dumb jock, but like I said, I am oddly attracted to the dumb ones because the things they say are just so freaking amusing. I would marry Van in a heartbeat.

Just another reason why I love literature.

It gives you passages like this one:

“The terrible thing is, the people need to be educated, and this they cannot do before taking power, only after. They can only learn at the cost of their own mistakes, which will be very serious and will cost many innocent lives. Or perhaps not, maybe those lives will not have been innocent because they will have committed the huge sin against nature; meaning, a lack of ability to adapt. All of them, those unable to adapt- you and I for example- will die cursing the power they helped, through great sacrifice, to create. Revolution is impersonal; it will take their lives, even utilizing their memory as an example or as an instrument for domesticating the youth who follow them. My sin is greater because I, more astute and with greater experience, call it what you like, will die knowing that my sacrifice stems only from an inflexibility symbolizing our rotten civilization, which is crumbling. I also know- and this won’t alter the course of history or your personal view of me- that you will die with a clenched fist and a tense jaw, the epitome of hatred and struggle because you are not a symbol (some inanimate example) but a genuine member of the society to be destroyed; the spirit of the beehive speaks through your mouth and motivates your actions. You are as useful as I am, but you are not aware of how useful your contribution is to the society that sacrifices you.”

“I saw his teeth and the cheeky grin with which he foretold history, I felt his handshake and, like a distant murmur, his formal goodbye. The night, folding in at contact with his words, overtook me again, enveloping me within it. But despite his words, I now knew… I knew that when the great guiding spirit cleaves humanity into two agnostic halves, I would be with the people. I know this, I see it printed in the night sky that I, eclectic dissembler of doctrine and psychoanalyst of dogma, howling like one possessed, will assault the barricades or the trenches, will take my bloodstained weapon and, consumed with fury slaughter any enemy who falls into my hands. And I see, as if great exhaustion smothers this fresh exaltation, I see myself immolated in the genuine revolution, the greater equalizer of individual will, proclaiming the ultimate meacupla. I feel my nostrils dilate, savoring the acrid smell of gunpowder and blood, of the enemy’s death; I steel my body, ready to do battle, and prepare myself to be a sacred space within which the bestial howl of triumphant proletariat can resound with new energy and new hope.”

This fantastic excerpt is from the amazing book The Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara. I was rereading the book for my travel writing midterm tomorrow, and this just popped out. I love when that happens; when I am reading a book and all of the sudden this amazing quote, line, or paragraph sticks out and takes on a whole new meaning. Take for example a small passage that struck me as terribly haunting when I read Joseph Conrad’s short story An Outpost of Progress:

“The wicked people were gone, but fear remained. Fear always remains. A man may destroy everything within himself, love and hate and belief, and even doubt; but as long as he clings to life he cannot destroy fear: the fear, subtle, indestructible, and terrible, that pervades his being; that tinges his thoughts; that lurks in his heart; that watches on his lips the struggles of his last breath.”

That is probably one of my favorite excerpts from any piece of literature I have read. It is so beautiful, so eerie, and so true. People always ask me why I want to teach- of all things- literature. I never really know how to relpy to that question. It’s my passion; I can’t see myself doing anything else. But every time I reread my little excerpts it gives me a chance to go back and think of what I would say if someone asked me why.  There is so much you can take away from reading a book for the first time or for the millionth time that you never noticed was there. Conrad, Dickens, Shakespeare, Orwell, etc.- these guys knew how to write books. And I can not thank them enough.

Along with this I have been thinking about my book challenge. I’m adding a few books to my list for right now, though they may change. But if anyone has recommendations, I’m always listening.

My list so far, in no particular order:

1. Looking for Alaska- John Green

2. An Abundance of Katherines- John Green

3. Paper Towns- John Green

4. Lord of the Flies- William Golding

5. The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald

6. 1984- George Orwell

7. Animal Farm- George Orwell

8. The Gun Seller- Hugh Laurie

9. Paper Soldiers- Hugh Laurie

10. Twelfth Night- William Shakespeare

11-18. The Harry Potter series- JK Rowling

19. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings- Maya Angelou

20. The Chocolate War- Robert Cormier

21. A Bridge to Terabithia- Katherine Paterson ** I don’t know why I want to read this. The movie was horribly, horribly sad and made both me and my grandfather cry. Okay so he let out like, one single tear and I was blubbering. Whats your point?

22. Catcher in the Rye- J.D. Salinger

23. The Bell Jar- Sylvia Plath

24. Lullabies for Little Criminals- Heather O’Neill

25. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas- John Boyne

29. The Lady and the Little Foxfur- Violette Leduc

30. Catch 22- Joseph Heller

David Tennant can doctor my who anytime…

Tonight was unbelievable. Simply amazing. I have the best friend in the entire world.

Okay… starting from the very beginning. For our Shakespeare class we were required to see three live performances of three out of the five plays we were studying. These plays were A Midsummer Nights Dream, Timon of Athens, and my favorite play of all time- Hamlet. We go to the Globe Theater and see the first two plays. Midsummer was so very funny and entertaining and one of the leads had a GIGANTIC butt so it was quite entertaining considering how tight his pants were. Then Timon was downright dreadful and you would have to pay me lots and lots of money to see that or read that again. Sorry Shakes. It was awful. But tonight… tonight my dear readers, we saw Hamlet and HOLY COW it was unbelievably amazing.

So our tickets are for the balcony section, whatever I’m over it. I was just so very excited because playing the title of Hamlet, my loverly Prince of Denmark, was David Tennant. Now if you do not know who this lovely man is, don’t worry, I shall tell you. He is currently on the British sci-fi show Dr. Who though he is retiring from that this year. You may also know him if you have seen the Harry Potter films- he was Barty Crouch Jr. in the fifth movie. Patrick Stewart was also in it as Claudius, Hamlet’s “uncle father” (go read the play right now if you do not get that) and he did a fabulous job. But it was David (obviously) who stole the show. Lets get the fan-girl stuff out of me first. This company decided to do the play in modern day attire meaning David was in a suit for a large part of the play. HOT (I melt for guys in suits, it’s a well known fact). Then when he was in jeans and a t-shirt every single female in the audience edged forward in their seats to get a good look at his yummy tummy when he raised his hands and his shirt went up. With those low jeans on. HOTT. Then, and yes- it gets better. The whole background of the stage was ceiling to floor mirrors which served as doors and props and such throughout the play. I should point out when Hamlet sat down you could see the back of him through the mirrors. And lets just say lover boy was not wearing any underwear. At all. YEAH. Our conversation went like this:

Macie (whispering): “Dude- you can totally see his ass in the mirrors.”

Me (whispering): “Um what do you think I’m staring at? Duh.”

Macie (whispering): “That-a-girl”

Okay, fan-girl has been put away. For now.

His acting was absolutely fantastic. A little Shakespearean trivia for you: Hamlet has the most lines out of any Shakespearean character reaching just at 2,000. Also, with the exception of back in the Shakes days, Hamlet is rarely performed in its entirety. Tonight was cut down and the performance was still 3 hours 30 minutes. And David never messed up (not even once- that I recall anyway) and never even seemed tired. His comic timing was so funny and put Mel Gibson to shame, just saying… everything was just wonderful. But I’m a little biased. But it really was.

Overall I really liked this company’s interpretation of the play. Everything was perfect and having seen Hamlet before I do not remember it being this funny. I laughed so much, especially during the scenes between Hamlet and Polonius. They were so funny together! (p.s.- If you are basing your judgments on the play off of the movie version with Mel Gibson and Glen Close please, please, please just forget everything you saw and start from scratch. Trust me, it’s better this way.)

And now for a random little chuckle during the performance. One of Claudius’ speeches requires him to state the following lines: My words fly up/ My thoughts remain below/ Words without thoughts/ Never to Heaven go. The play is going on quite nicely and this scene comes along. Claudius (Patrick Stewart) starts saying the lines and gets out “My words fly up/ My thoughts remain below” and then took what was one of the LONGEST dramatic pauses I have ever witnessed. So I filled in the gap by whispering the rest of the line to Macie. She looked at me like I was crazy, which happens more often than not…anywhore, Patrick FINALLY finishes the line and Macie looks at me with this look of utter amazement mixed with a hint of disgust. And do you even know what she says to me? “Duuuuude. You need to get a life.” I’m not going to lie- I totally started laughing and couldn’t stop. And she was laughing at me and we were such messes. It was fantastic.

Eventually the play ended and I was sad and Macie and I made our way back to the tube station. I really wanted to go to the stage door but Macie isn’t as big of a nerd (or shakes obsessed) as me, so I didn’t want to make her wait in the freezing cold. But we passed the stage door on our way to the tube station and she knew- felt it in her heart of hearts- that all I wanted to do was stand outside and wait for David. So she told me that she would wait with me and let me be my nerdy self. And so we stood. And stood. And took very random pictures. And kept standing. And then a mini-van pulled up, aka David’s get away car (totally hot, I know) and then… David came out of the stage door. And people are clapping and he started signing a few things and I don’t know if you know this, but I am a tad on the shorter side of life. Macie? Not so much. She grabbed my camera and pushed her way towards the front of the crowd and got pictures for me. I was so happy. And then it got a little quiet and David was on our side of the crowd and so I saw it as my opportunity to be bold (aka not myself), and I shouted “David! I really liked you in Dr. Who!!” and then he shouted back “Thank you!” AHHHHHHH. I was so happy, dare I even say ecstatic. I’m waiting on Macie to step back, by this time David had gotten into the van, and when she turned around she handed me her ticket. And I just looked at her. And she said “Merry Christmas!” and I looked down and she GOT HIM TO SIGN HER TICKET FOR ME. And then we came home and I am still just freaking out.

Internet, I have the best friend.

So follow my lead and we’ll 1,2,3…

PULL SHAPES!!!!!!

Don’t know what I’m talking about? You are not the first. I’ts only my new favorite song. I mean, duh. I sing it all the time and in fact I’m listening to it right now. On repeat.

So Jessica met Robert Pattinson today at the UK Twilight premiere and I am really happy for her. I stayed here because I had class, go photography- more on that later- and I’m not really sad about missing Rob or Kristen, I think we all knew that though. If I went I would be screaming “I WANT CAM GIGANDET!!!” and then when Cam came over to ask me to marry him I would reply with a loud “YES” but only if he took his shirt off first.

Speaking of nudity (how many sentences start off like that? Don’t tell me I don’t want to know) in photography class we have been giving presentations about photographers we were assigned or picked or whatever. The final three or four (though it felt like 900) people gave their presentations today, and one guy’s photographer happened to be big on the S&M scene, and may I just say I saw waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many pictures of male genitalia than I would have liked to see. And bonus! I was (unfortunately) sitting really close to the screen, because that is usually where I sit and I like to sit in the same seat every class, and so every picture was RIGHT THERE and just disturbing. There was a lot of rubber. I just wanted to shout out “there will always be women in rubber flirting with me!” [bonus points if you can tell me- without looking- what movie that is from.] I refrained.

And now I am going to bed so I can wake up and go to my LAST CLASS!!!!!!!! It’s poetry and my professor is obsessed with sex and interprets every single poem as this work about one of five things. 1- sex. 2- death. 3- sex. 4- religion, preferably of the Catholic nature. 5- sex. Every single poem is about one of those things. Last class he went into great detail about how this poem referring to a rose could be about this woman and man and he was jealous and she was overly sexual and couldn’t wait for him so she had to meet her own needs and basically his interpretation was wrong and mine was right. It was about this girl who had an affair and her boy toy couldn’t handle it and he got all angry and attacked the “other guy” and then told home girl that she was ugly. Told you my interpretation was better. And you don’t even know what the poem said! Trust me, it’s much better this way.

I go home in 9 days! I am excited and sad at the same time. I am very happy to go home and sleep in a comfortable bed and just all the little comforts of home and my CAT! I miss her so so much. But I am going to be so sad to leave here, my cozy little home away from home. I am going to miss Tesco, the tube, the London Eye, Oxford Street, Regent Street, Partridges, Imperial, The V&A, THE GLOBE, just walking around London, Camden Market, and lots of other things. I am getting sad. I packed a suitcase today. Tear.

This blog is rather random. I covered music, Twilight, nudity, sex, London- I’m like a carbon copy of Cosmo! Except I won’t cost you about 5 dollars. Omg I’m so ending this right now.

I lead with my left hand
I stomp with my right foot
Well I just wanna freak out
I just wanna move, I don’t care what the song’s about

Dance with me, pretty boy tonight
Dance with me, and we’ll be alright
There’s a whole floor before us, just for you and me,
So follow my lead, and we’ll 1-2-3

PULL SHAPES!!!

Yea, it’s that good I just posted some of the lyrics. NERD.

What do you do when the music stops?

What do you do when the music stops?

What do you do when the music stops?

What do you do when the music stops?

PULL SHAPES!!!!

ok, I’m done for real now. But seriously, go listen to them (link at the top. Click on the word “favorite” and you will be transported to a world of awesome music. I know, it’s magic. I’m currently awaiting my letter from Hogwarts.)

I swear I’m not insane. I’m just losing my mind, thats all.

If my life had a theme song…

This would be it. And this would so totally be my music video. Thank you to How I Met Your Mother for not only being my second favorite show out there right now (first is House, duh) but for putting my life in song form. This totally makes me think of that episode of The O.C. where they get trapped in a mall and how it was Summer’s dream, and they get to wonder around an empty department store and I’m not bitter at all… Well I’m with Summer on this one because that is TOTALLY MY DREAM TOO!!!!

*Bonus: I had some British lady at a store the other day ask me if I was from Canada. Loving It!!!
