After lunch, Pris and I ran into Allie, who was in my Romeo and Juliet group this past week. She's German and an amazing actress. We all went into this bookstore that's about a block from the dorms. I almost died when I saw their theatre and play section. It was ginormous! I ended up buying two monologue books and The Homecoming by Harold Pinter.

Today was slow moving, but jam-packed. I woke up slightly late and went and jumped on Pris to get her up for breakfast. After breakfast, we woke up (OK, more like pounced on) Canadian Sam. We actually forgot which room he was in, so we had reception call him and tell him that he had "friends" looking for him. We ran up to his room and pounced on him. It's kind of gotten to the point where we all don't really care who's all in our rooms at one given time; we're all pretty nonchalant about personal space (aren't ALL theatre people like that?).
We hung all around Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown for the afternoon, just tube hopping to our hearts' content. We ate posh Belgian flourless cake and then had a sudden craving for McDonalds...so we went. Believe it or not, British fast food is like a restaurant experience. The food is less salty with less fat; it wasn't really that bad! We were really tired after about four hours of roaming, so we came back to the dorms and met all of the new RADA students that just moved in. There's a lot of people from France this time around...interesting.
I'm suddenly feeling a little sad. I'm really gonna miss the few who left for good this weekend. They are so incredibly talented and I can't wait to see them again...sometime in the future :)
Until tomorrow friends!
Belgian chocolate, flourless cake....sooooooo good.
