Website has been having problems. And my babble from last week has disappeared. But at least I have email back, so I don’t have to wonder anymore if I’m missing job offers. I wasn’t, and I’m not.
And, rather than trying to remember what I wrote a whole week ago – I’ll just write a quick update about London to this point.
– Have been to several nights out at pubs for various events. Dom’s birthday, Mike’s birthday, Todd’s leaving, and maybe others. Each one of these nights, I’ve run into more people I haven’t seen for ages – so it’s been cool.
– Been looking for jobs. Lots of phone calls from agents who sound enthusiastic, etc – but we’ll see. One or two calls from agents who are obviously just trying to figure out what companies have roles open – by asking me who I’ve talked to.
– Helen, my scottish ginga bargirl from Quito – turned up here on Sunday. On her way back home to gingaland, we had a few beers, and a few games of pool. Then, after dinner back home, I managed to trick her into staying overnight by neglecting to remember that I should tell her what time the last train left. Oops.
– Touristy stuff… seen a few of the big names from a distance. And that piqued my interest to see them one day properly. Westminster, Parliament, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, London Eye, etc. Have been into the British Museum (twice – each time with a different lovely lass on my arm. First Cazz, then Helen). Saw all the stuff the english thieved off the rest of the world ages ago. Some of it is pretty sweet. Egyptian sculptures are rather impressive. Their mummies aren’t too bad neither. And some good clocks. Natural History Museum – only really saw the most boring part of it so far. Will have to go back – as the sections which aren’t about rocks look pretty good.
Other than that, not much doing. Trying to resist my urge to start spending money with no care for cost/consequences. Seeing as I spent half the money I’d saved for my tax bill overseas – and that tax bill turns out to be larger than expected, and my credit card is accruing interest – I really shouldn’t rack up any more debt.
Anyway – next time I’ll be telling you all about my exciting new job with a financial company for big bucks, for which I can work from home a couple of days a week. I hope.
