I am in London. In the evening, Cass, Annalie, and I met up on the South Bank and went for a walk. We were joined by Greer later and then Ben. We had dinner at the local Wagamama’s.
It’s great that without any planning I can catch up with Christchurchian kiwi friends in London. Although Ben hadn’t met Cass, Greer, and Annalie it turned out they new a bunch of the same people. Therefore gossiping could proceed unhindered.

I met Todd Bray in Oxford Circus in the evening and we had a couple of beers. I think I’ve only seen him a handful of times in the last 15 years so it was good to catch up. He’s been living in London for a little over a month and has one of them dinky working holiday visas.

I’m visiting Jeremy for a few days in the happening town of Eastleigh near Southampton.
Above: It’s Movemeber. On the left you can see Jeremy and his Mo 1.0 and on the right Jeremy and Mo 2.0. Personally I prefer the second edition. It makes him into Count Jeremy the Villainous… or something.
Above left: Eastleigh was switching on the Christmas lights and had fireworks. Everyone was very excited. Such excitement is rare in Eastleigh. Don’t I look excited? Above right: Jeremy, Rob, and friends endure photo snapage.
Above left: Jeremy and Rob do their best to hide their flatmate Edit behind the couch. Nothing to see here… Above right: Rob got scared by all the photos and decided to move out. The photo shows a small percentage of the boxes he had.
I met the lovely Darina in London today and we visited the Tower of London together before having a meal in London.

Chris, Kati, and I got up at 4:30am and headed to the airport. I flew back to London and I’m staying with Greer again.
