The Odeon West End cinema, Leicester square, London – fanatical about film (and so am I)
Exactly how romantic is it to eat at Burger King on Valentine’s Day. Well at least BK had the best Valentine’s Day slogan I have read today:
On the menu of life, you are the today’s special. And tomorrow. And the day after. And the day after. etc.
I needed to do something fun after another wacky screwed up job interview. I think this is the toughest interview I have ever done. And I also think it was the weirdest one, and I felt like a fried tomato after it.I probably have blown it completely here too, so we start from scratch again.
But then I was thinking dear readers. How interesting would it have been for you, when I just would have scored a job this easy. I mean that wouldn’t have been any fun would it ? It’s much more interesting to follow the story of a soon to be workless girl, who had this crazy idea of burning all bridges behind her by moving to London, struggling to get a life in this city. Now there are moments that I am wondering about what the hell I am doing. But there has not been a second yet where I regret it. London is home already, and this is something I need to do.
I needed something fun to do after the fry session, so I went to have Fun With Dick And Jane (mostly because Underworld Evolution (with Bill Nighy) wasn’t running at the time I was at the cinema (will catch Bill/Viktor later this week). So Jim Carrey in stead, and no matter how bad this movie turned out to be (bad story, Carrey is the only reason to see it), I have laughed a lot about him, so that was worth it.
Another highlight today was a first visit to a real UK supermarket : Morrisons. Morrisons is big. They have dutch cheese in many flavours, even Leerdammer, and smoked cheese (which I love). I have spent a lot of time finding tea, but finally found out that their teabags are round (and they sell them in very large packages! I am a tea person so this is heaven too), and not like the ones I am used to at home. And it does taste good ! The prices are lower than in Denmark. I finally can buy normal brown bread again in the bakery, hurrah for that. They have mushroom soup, yay ! And the very best : their choice in desserts is HUGE ! (finally after 9 years of a cold dessert turkey in Denmark).
And hurrah, tomorrow is a brand new day, and I think I will play tourist tomorrow.
(And don’t worry about me, I’m fine – and I still love London Actually, a great deal).
