Weekend Escape

Mmm, so I finally saw "Australia" today, due to a mistake on my part last week (bought ticket to a show I couldn't go to, so this was my money back). It was awesome, really loved it. (And not just Hugh Jackman either... or the free wine). I felt like it touched on a lot of different class, race, and political issues that make up what Australia is (or at least what I know about it). And then there was also the whole reinforcement of the romantic sap that I am, (lest it be forgotten...)

Yesterday was also a majorly productive day in terns of crossing things off The List; went to Borough Market (picture day to follow soon!), the Tower of London (with her head tucked... maybe only Ben C will get that), and finally Fabric, this infamous London club. Jenny had told me about it last summer, and while it wasn't officially on The List, it was a must, so now it can be crossed off. Wasn't that great of a time. Had fun dancing though, although flat techno is not worth it (nothing against techno, the DJ was uninspired). I had more fun then my friend though, which means I now owe him (I made him come because I needed BADA support to balance out all of my other friend's friends). So now I have to cook him dinner. ...This could get interesting. Thoughts on simple meals?


  1. Pasta! I made some really good pasta the other day, with onions, tomatoes, and broccoli sauteed in olive oil, and put that with some spaghetti, and it was delicious (if i do say so myself).

    Also, I enjoy that the list has gained capital letters. And that you went to Borough market. And that you went to Fabric and experienced the massiveness of that place. Were there tons of people on drugs when you went? Also, did you get a guide from a yeoman warden at the Tower, and did it make your day?

  2. If you want to get fancier, add some meat to Jenny's recommendation. Cooking meat is easy, and not as hard to prep as you think. You could buy a couple of boneless chicken breasts, sprinkle on some salt, pepper, and something tasty, garlic salt or cayenne pepper, for example. Then cook them for about 10 to 15 over medium heat and voila, meat you can cut into slices and lay over your delicious pasta dish. :)
