Its a Dang Duds day in London or DARGH! TOO MANY SMALL CHILDREN! DAMN YOU HALF TERM!

As you may of guessed from the title (unless you are an idiot I will therefore articulate) we had another trip to London today. Today we had a couple of new people along with us.
They were Tom (or Moolb) and Julia (or Astrojaxx) They are friends of Lewis and Dave from Neopets (Sigh) and were quite nice etc etc. Enough of that, on with the Show.

It was a rather annoying to start with as I had to wait at West Wickham station for a long time for the train was Delayed!. I also had to do a lot of the waiting on my own for Stewart didnt turn up at first (for it turns out that he had overslept). I soon got up to Charing X where we all met up, Stewart got there late! which is rather poor considering Tom and Julia got there on time and they had to come all the way from Peterbourgh.
We first decieded to head to the British Library (I say we but it was more Tom and Lewis's decision) and we made our way there.

Then again we did find this. I mean every thing a girl could want all in one book.

Then again we did find an evil scripture, bad memories flooded back.

More bad memories! HEANY I WILL GET REVENGE YOU IRISH BASTARD! YOU AND YOUR POTATOS!

We then left the Library (phew) and we decieded to pay a visit to Harrods. We then got the train to Knightsbridge, which was pretty jam packed thanks to a combination of Commuters from work, Parents out with their Children and other teenagers like us out looking for a way to waste a day. Stupid half term.

We then found the source of all that is Chav.

And here is the Duds having a heated discussion.

We then decieded when we got to Harrods that we should eat first and looked for the nearest Pizza Hut (The all you can eat thing they do there is such good value for money) but we walked from Knightsbridge to South Kensington without spying one. We then decided to go back to Charing X where we knew there was a Pizza hut. But alas it was Jam packed full OF BLOODY KIDS ON HALF TERM. Not only that but there was a que just to get a table and we didnt hold much hope that we would get a table for 8. We then decieded to do the quick and easy thing and eat at Burger King (not such good value for money but ok i guess). After this we went to the Science Museum but there was a problem. IT WAS FULL OF BLEEDIN' KIDS ON HALF TERM!!!! ARRGHHH.

Hehehhehehe "Engage!" (I'm Not a Trekie Honest I never watch it ever)

They took up all the fun stuff so we decieded to head next door to the Natural History Museum. There wasnt much to see there all though we did bump into Tom Costello (a chap from school) and his Girlfriend (Or so I assume).

What would a trip to London be without a group picture eh?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I'M TELLING YOU IT'S KEYSER SOZE!!!!!! (I'f you don't understand watch the "Usual Suspects" a brilliant piece of modern cinema. That Kevin Spacy, what an actor!)

After leaving the National History Museum we said Goodbye to Julia and Tom as they had to get a specific train back to Peterbourgh. That didnt stop us having fun though. We went back to Charing X again and had some Coffee at Starbucks. I had a White Chocolate Mocha, which i must say was very nice.

Tah! Calling meself a Communist I'm such a Hippocrite.

Then I saw this rather humerous poster outside the station and had a good laugh.

Then we departed back to our individual homesteds for it had been a busy day. So I leave you with that for now see ya the next time.

IM BACK FROM THE MOON!!! (Well not really)

I have finally decided that this moment warranted a long blog to explain my activities over the past month or so and I plan to do it with pictures because they tell me more than my memories
of the past few weeks do. Heck its been one busy month.

I will start me documentation from the three day weekend we had a fortnight ago. I decided to make good use of it by going to London on the Friday with the Duds although Rob declined due to illness.

Here we see a the Duds in all their insanity

We then went from Charing X to Somerset house where we saw this funny fountain thingy

Ah look finally a legal bookshop. I'm so tired of buying illegal books.

Here was where the day took a serious up turn when we found this marvelous shop

We then managed to find this funny disabled lift thingy but it took so long to go up and down that if I were somehow disabled I'd rather take my chances on the stairs.

Here we witnessed a very cruel prank I mean some work colleagues can be so cruel.

Here is a very bad picture of Mr Rick Mayell a popular British TV personality who I have enjoyed the work of. For those of you who are American and don't know who he is, he was the guy from Drop Dead Fred that's if you've seen that anyway.

These were some very tasty Chocolate Brownies that the others bought, I personally opted not to as I wasn't hungry.

After a hearty Lunch of Pizza, we went to the Science museum. Here you see the ultimate being Daveathon (me and Jon fused) Tremble in his wake!

That was about where our London adventure ended for that day. I know it was very badly abridged but I did my best at remembering and there's a lot more for me to type about. That same day I went to have a quiet drink with some of my friends, Baz, Matt, Nick, Rob and two others who used to go to my primary school called Nick and Chris in celebration of my impending birthday. It was a good rip roaring night out.
Two days later I celebrated my birthday. I was Finally 17 and able to drive a car, but I reckoned without expensive insurance and annoying forms to fill out so it may be some time before I get down to that stuff. Still though it was a good day and I got an MP3 player, a couple of DVD's and a computer game. Also my aunt made me a very nice pie. Look it says David on it, for that is my name.

And look at this I mean does your birthday cake have your face on it (although not in a very flattering way)

Well anyway that was that for another year as sad as it is now.

As for more recent matters well there not much to tell I guess then again there are some good things on the horizon for me. I have an interview at Waitrose for this Friday, I am going to see Muse at Earles Court on the 19th of December and my "plan" may come into fruition soon with a bit of luck. So that's about it friends and others that's all I can be bothered to write now so until the next time whenever that may be.
