okay. itinerary for tomorrow includes: walking around Hyde Park, Birdland, seeing the Big Ben/Westminster Abbey again because they’re really, really beautiful so why not, walking along Charing Cross Road because apparently there are books there, going to Waterstones if I have time, getting on a bus, going to the airport, and spending 9 HOURS ATTEMPTING (but likely failing) TO SLEEP IN AN AIRPORT STARBUCKS WOOHOO

Dear Mr. Scott, I am flying from France to see your performance. This would not be such a big deal if I hadn’t just spent all of my $$$ ching-a-ling-a-ching on air flight and, as such, will now be spending the night in the airport in order to avoid a hostel/hotel fee.

Please make your Birdland performance for the 24th extraordinary.

Yours truly, me

When Harry’s name is pulled out of the cup,…

so back in November when I was rolling in the $$$ and buying myself flights to London and Dublin and $120 haircuts, I predicted, astutely, that I would one day perhaps be short on some ching-a-ling, and would perhaps need to eat anyhow.

I would like to thank my former, more prosperous self for supplying my future (now current), broke self with a decent supply of pasta and beans.
