Word of the Day: Minging (rhymes with ringing)
- Offensive, disgusting (I left a glass of milk on my desk for a few days and it is minging.)
I am not sure why I am feeling so very tired. Maybe it’s the cooler weather or the shorter days. It could be the amount of time I am by myself with this computer. Perhaps I am not sleeping as well as I think I am, what with the street lights and street noise outside our bedroom. Who knows?! Whatever the cause, it’s another thing to which I’ll have to adjust.
We walked from our flat all the way down to The Tower of London today.
Originally we had set out to find the building where I have the interview, but we found such cool architecture that we took a few detours.
We also realized how close we were to the spot where we stood, barely over a year ago, wondering if we would ever have the chance to live somewhere as cool as London.
As the city began to turn dark, we thought we would get a bite to eat and catch a movie. We found a wonderful hole in the wall called Indian Veg. The owners had plastered the walls with research about the benefits of eating vegetables and certain spices. It was wonderful to have a vegan meal; the food was simple, but full of flavor and vegetables that were filling and nutritious. The meal was also very inexpensive. I was grateful for the meal and the love that went into its preparation. I could see us finding that place again–since it is near the theatre and its affordable, we could make a little tradition out of it.
Walking for hours on end might not have sounded like a fun way to spend my Saturday back in the states, but there is so much to look at and digest as we wander the streets… I wonder if it ever gets old.
