Perfect, Jax. That's why I keep you around!
Today was another good day of good friends. I had tea with Holly and we just sat and talked for ages, then I met Carina, Alex, and Alex's parents for dinner. I felt bad because I was late and got sort of lost. I knew exactly where I was, I just didn't know where they were. I was literally standing right next to Buckingham Palace, hoping a prince would come along and give me directions. Alex and Co. grabbed a taxi and came to pick me up, though, and we went for dinner at a nice Italian place. Yummy! Her parents were really nice. Have I mentioned before that Alex is a Georgia peach? Cuz she is. Tanya calls her Georgia. All this to say that her parents had adorable southern accents. We hung out and talked for a while, then Alex, Carina, and I walked to Alex's tiny closet-apartment and talked a little longer. Alex thought she heard her friends coming in, so she went out into the hall to meet them, but it was just this guy she doesn't really like, so she had to pretend she was going to the bathroom. This made Carina comment that Alex was "so awkward!" which made me think of David Sedaris, so I asked Alex if she had ever read David Sedaris. She looked at me like I had horns and said, "Have we not had this conversation?" No, we haven't. She said David Sedaris was her favorite author, and he lives down the street from her here in London, so she STALKED HIS BOYFRIEND, HUGH! She literally loitered outside their house until she saw Hugh at the window! And she plans to go back and stalk them some more when David Sedaris gets back from his book tour in the US! So funny!!! Carina was appalled, but Alex assured her that it's okay to stalk people if you're a cute girl. I'm highly amused by the whole thing, and am tempted to stalk David Sedaris with her. Anyway, I thought you guys (especially Jocky) would get a kick out of that.
