Lloyd’s Adventures in London 2005 Chapter 14

Well why not write another update. Im sitting watching the basketball
England V. NZ. The commonwealth games. Seems like you guys are putting
a good games on. Most events have british commentary, but i cant stop
laughing because this basketball game has aussie commentators. Man…
its so so weird to hear the accents. I cant stop laughing, not in a
bad way, just forget sometimes how strong they can be. I was watching
the lawn bowls earlier, and the camermen zoomed up on christmas
beetles on the lawn. The british commentators were horrified and were
freaking out, hoping they didnt bite or were poisonous. They talked
about the beetles for most of the game.. it was very amusing. And the
crowd were making aussie cheers, and the commentators were claiming it
was unfair to the british team. then they said “well we cant really
expect any better from the australians” ooooooo!!
Ok, my weekend.. St pats day on Friday, and i hung out with some mates
in a pub till about 8, but i got hungry and went and found noodles at
my house, and didnt go back out again. then Saturday i met up with
Kiwi Matt, and went to westminster abbey. was so cool! Tom was down
visiting some texan friends of his, and they were goin to the abbey
too, so we all went together. hehe then no surprise.. we all went to
Wagamamas. We then had to get the two texan girls back to the London
eye (big ferris wheel sort of thing.. that goes high above london).
They were going with their big group of texan people on it. But one of
the girls parents didnt want to go on it.. and gave me and tom their
tickets. Was so cool. We were on it, just as the sun was setting, so
we saw big ben and all that, slowly get dark and then lit up in gold.
I felt so touristy, was fun. I hardly ever do that sort of stuff, so
the day was pretty different. I also played up the whole aussie thing
for the americans. They loved it.
then just hung out with tom for the night, as the girls went to dinner
with their big group. Didnt do much else for the weekend.
Oh and I tried to attempt to get the bus again. I swear someone plans
it all for Lloyd’s misery. I walk towards the road then.. zoom… red
bus goes past. ahhhhhh it makes me just wanna.. well i do, i shout at
the bus. tell it its dumb, and red. (no offense to red heads anywhere)
Well its 5 months today since i got here. I bought an orange to celebrate.
My mate Ardon’s brother is in hospital cause he was bashed up randomly
in Kingston. bit of a shock really… has broken ribs and pretty
battered looking.. and feeling im sure.
Well 4 and a half weeks till Louise and Dad get here, im not counting
or anything.
I have a few different job options right now.. think i will retire
from discovery channel just before Dad and Louise get here.. then have
a few weeks off and start either.. production assistant job with post
produciton house, or on production shoot for our new film Control, up
manchester/nottingham way for 8 weeks. Yet to decide what to do.. Or
possibly officer manager at the production house i work at now.
so thats my update..
and i saw my first squirrel!! but he was bein a popular little fella,
with some mexican tourists. i let him to it. Will catch up with him
Well the weather still looks pretty good by what i see on tv. we are
having the coldest march in decades.. not the news i want to hear.

till next time. Lloyd.
