Today I meant to go into London to see the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery and any other museum/gallery type thing nearby that I could squeeze in, but I got on the wrong train :D; So I ended up going to Leeds Castle instead! It was beautiful.
I RODE ON A SEGWAY 8DDD
SERIOUSLY IT WAS THE COOLEST FUCKING THING EVER AND I COULDN'T STOP SILENTLY SQUEEING BECAUSE I WAS HAVING SO MUCH FUN. You can get a Segway tour around the grounds (which are beautiful but smelly because there's sheep and sheep shit EVERYWHERE) for 15 pounds, and I was like SEGWAY I'M IN. My guide was this adorable kid 3 years younger than me |D; We chatted and had a ball because I thought he was very funny because he was very cynical about the whole thing. "It's not very exciting, don't get your hopes up..." "Not that thrilling, really..." jsdklhfgjsd It was hysterical. I just couldn't stop laughing. I think he found be to be a bit of a duffer, but oh well :D; He told me at the end he was glad I enjoyed myself and laughed at his jokes and stuff because he usually gets miserable, unresponsive customers XD So yay to that.
Then I went to the pub across the square from my hotel, and just chatted with a couple of other guys at the bar and the barmen for a few hours. Very fun \o/
Tomorrow I need to enquire at a travel agent's about a day trip to Paris. I didn't get to see [livejournal.com profile] animeotaku51 =3= but hopefully I'll see [livejournal.com profile] timidity. We'll see. HAY MARIA we should go to the London Dungeon 8D

ALSO I'VE BEEN WRITING MORE FIC FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE STOP ME D8

In the morning I went to Starbucks (I don't feel bad about not supporting a local coffee shop because the Brits are obsessed with coffee. about 567340589 coffee shops on every corner and street and they're almost always all full :|) for light breakfast/lunch and a chai, and the barista and I happily chatted about Disney since my Steamboat Willie shirt made her happy :D
WEEEEELL basically I spent the entire day at the Cathedral. I'd gone, what, yesterday or the day before, but unfortunately my camera battery died in the middle of everything, so I couldn't take more pictures. So I had to go buy a camera battery charger, which is around when I lost my card e_e That was the last purchase I had made. /not bitter, no
So I charged the battery and went back! Took tons more pictures. UNFORTUNATELY TO MY FURY THE BATTERY DIED AGAIN WITHIN 30 MINUTES DESPITE SAYING IT WAS CHARGED. ARGH.
Eh, but whatever. I made do with my stupid camera phone. Sadly I don't know how to send pictures I've taken myself to an email or something, so I can't get those off quite yet. BUT DON'T DESPAIR.
I'm extremely lucky that I came to England when I did! Because the private gardens in the Cathedral were open to the public! They were gorgeous and so very English. The weather was amazing, and I had tea and cake in one of the gardens :D What a perfect English experience. I talked to a lot of Brits, and ranted about the poor state of America and how Bush was AWFUL and I certainly didn't vote for him, and such. I talked longest with this lovely elderly lady; she and her husband made such a stereotypical elderly British couple, I love it XD He barely said a word and she did most of the talking. And they talked about their trip to Canada and such. And then they bought me scones D: They were so sweet;;;

I was going to start posting pictures, but there are too many and I'm too lazy |D
sammywhatammy: (ohhhh shiiiiiit)
skdjfhgslkjdf THIS TRIP HAS BEEN ABSOLUTE HELL. Gerry and Mom are of the opinion that I should just give it up as a bad job and come home, but I'm stubborn =∆= IT'S MY FIRST ENGLAND/OVERSEAS TRIP IN ALMOST TEN YEARS I WON'T BE BEATEN THAT EASILY >|
...besides, Orbitz will charge me $200-$300 to change my flight plans :\;;;

long story short in pros and cons )

I'm too lazy to explain the epic, epic fail that was most of today. In short, Bank of America has some pretty bullshit policies and I'm considering pulling out of there.
WHAT DO THEY MEAN THEY CAN'T GIVE ME EMERGENCY SERVICES JUST BECAUSE I'VE CHANGED MY ADDRESS IN THE LAST SIX FUCKING MONTHS.

FUCK I HATE THIS CREATIVITY DRY SPELL IT'S KILLING ME jkldhfgkjsdf I have so much artwork just SITTING on my hard drive and I barely touch a couple of lines before closing the fucking file. sjdhflgksjdhfgksjdhfglskdjhfglskdjfghl /HATES
