Whoa, did you guys know that two days off in a row at the end of the week are totally awesome? You should try it sometime.
So on Saturday we went to Namco Station, which is three floors of arcade games and bowling and bumper cars! It turns out I'm more excited by the idea of bumper cars than actually going on them. Also, bowling is fun but I pulled a muscle in my leg. Sad.
Ross won two games of bowling, but I won two games of pool, so it sort of evened out - except that he'd already beaten me at Scrabble earlier that day. Dang. We both lost at Dance Dance Revolution - golly gee there is a big gap in difficulty between beginner and standard. I don't remember it being that hard, but then I don't remember ever injuring myself bowling, either. I don't even think it counts as a sport.
So after we left Namco, we found ourselves right in the heart of touristy London. Big Ben appeared out of nowhere, so that was exciting.
After that we went to Brick Lane for the ever awesome curry... We haggled to get a free bottle of wine, but then felt guilty about it and had to leave a tip. Haggling is not a strong point.
Sunday we spent hanging out and doing nothing, it was the best. I made pizza for dinner with fresh mozzarella, red onion, chorizo and basil - cooking good things is really satisfying. I had the dough in the freezer from last time I tried to make bread, so it was pretty easy, too! Yay me!
We've got this little slice of sunlight that comes in through our window at this time of day, it is quite lovely. So have some more photos!
Hmm, my arms are incredibly hairy and Ross thinks it's pretty funny.
Ah, a correction from Ross: he thinks it's cute and funny.
It is pretty funny.
Wow my camera does some pretty awesome zoom. Have I posted closeups of eyeballs before? I really like them, there's so much detail in eyes that you would normally miss out on. I guess you could stare intently at people, but the detail is harder to see when they're trying to avoid eye contact.
