Going the Distance

Maybe we weren’t adventurous enough to climb the lions at Trafalgar Square, but the moment I finished telling Donna that human contact of any kind is highly discouraged on the bus, we chatted about the validity of art with some hipsters from the East side – one fine artist, one fashion designer. I think that was more interesting really.

Now. Where were we? Ah, yes. Donna in London…

Saturday mornings=Borough Market + Cinnamon Tree Bakery

Apparently, taste testing was encouraged for anyone in a leopard print scarf. Lucky us.

We found the sauce, the spice, and the delight.

And we found the silly. Thank goodness for the silly.

A stop at Cafe Nero chased away the grey fog on the south bank of the Thames. Ok no. It didn’t.

But we carried on to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre – because Saturday afternoon = wandering + beverage.

A wander through Tate Modern sparked some interesting conversation (see introduction re: hipsters + bus above).

We toured St Paul’s Cathedral.

We chased that tour with a visit to the Museum of London and a visit to Liverpool Street. Then we crawled home. For some unknown reason, we dragged ourselves out to Leicester Square to see Drew Barrymore in Going the Distance. Oh wait, I remember: Drew Barrymore (that Justin Long has won my heart, too). I can only speak for myself when I say that I may have peed in the seat.

The End.

Well, what more do you want from Saturday?!
