Lounge time  

Got up really rested this morning and without any problems. Brain woke me up before the alarm clock so I had a few minutes to shake the sleepiness away instead of a violent wake-up call. Love that kind of nice waking up.

My goal for this morning was to get to Oxford street to change some money as well as finding a mug (since I'm using one of Aku's right now). Of course, a good geeky mug was what I wanted and Aku had told me I could find Doctor Who goodies at a shop called Forbidden Planet. Pretty great since it's near Tottenham Court station and that's just next to Oxford street (both station are on the same street actually).

I walked all the way from Victoria to Oxford street. Lovely walk *grins* Passed next to Buckingham Palace, through Green Park and Oxford street just a few streets away and followed the road till Shaftesbury avenue, where Forbidden Planet is. Actually, twas pretty fast, an hour at the most. And the path is pretty much straightforward. With maps along the way! XD As well as on my phone

There was a lovely Classic Who Cybermen eradicate mug but there wasn't any left so I couldn't buy it. And I ended up buying a Dalek one; the design of Cybermen ones weren't that great. And I suspect that in terms of goodies, Daleks will always win me; as much as I love them, Cybermen aren't much of a goodies material (except for figurines, I'd totally buy a Hedgewicke!Cybermen good quality figurine) whereas Daleks are just to perfect for that. Also, I might feel a tad bad that I've been favoring Cybermen over Daleks lately XD Not my fault though! *sheepish look at icon*

However, I did buy Cybermen-related things. An Hedgewicke pass holder for my Oyster and room cards as well as a book, a signed And 1 pounds off copy of Illegal Alien by Mike Tucker and Robert Perry featuring Seven and Ace. Got Mass Effect Revelation too (I've had the sequel for ages—won it in a contest—but hadn't bought the first book because I couldn't find it in English and I'm not sure I can deal with Mass Effect in French XD).

I'll take pics later; I'm in Starbucks right now I'm dorky enough with my Starcraft II bag, and TARDIS necklace (twas my Christmas gift from Yaki), I don't to put my stuff all over the place XD

Now, my friend texted me she arrived in London, and she'll visit a bit and eat and then send me a message to meet up. Leaves me some time to read.

Dear, feels like I got a much more developed social life in London than back home XD not that I'm complaining~

Mood: happy

This is so damned awesome! Love it when one wakes up like that. Tis definitely the best way to be awake.

And it sounds like you are going to get lots of fun crammed in on this trip! *Bounces happily*

Not my fault though! *sheepish look at icon*

Totally not your fault. How could it be? After all, Daleks aren't sexy. ;)

Well, they had Oswald, who might not be sexy, but all beautiful on the inside...

Hmm. Good point. First time I've ever seen a Dalek flirt. ^.^
