london calling

I want to be in London right now. Not necessarily in the weather that London may be experiencing now, but with the current L.A. weather... mmm. It is so crisp outside. Mind you, I probably have a different definition of "crisp" than most, I imagine my interpretation to be far more mild than most. It's just really, really nice weather. Anyhow, drinking my hot cocoa at work this morning, I had an overwhelming urge to be back in London... riding the tube, lounging on a bench on the south bank of the Thames near the Tate Modern, watching pigeons molest young children in Trafalgar Square for their feed. Sigh. London's the furthest I've traveled, and you'd think after going once I'd want to try somewhere else. Nope. I love London. I love that you can drive a measly 8 hours or so and be in Scotland. I love the bustle of the city. I love the night life, I've got to boogie... blah blah blah... no more about that, I'm depressing myself with travel memories.

On another note, this last Monday I was fortunate to see Howard Dean speak at his fundraiser at the House of Blues on Sunset. Not that sitting (or standing, rather) through The Bangles (!) or The Folksmen (!!!) was anything to scoff at, but seeing him campaign in person was definitely the highlight of the evening. Everyone should vote for him, because he rules. That's all. That's my highly intellectual endorsement... he rules.
