Easter Sunday - nice and lazy.

After all I said about it, I can't believe I forgot to set my clocks forward last night. I thought I was only 5 minutes late to church this morning, when in reality, I missed the entire service. Rather disappointing, as I also didn't make it to any Good Friday services, either. Oh well, too late to worry about it now. I went to Easter dinner at the flat of one of the professors here for the project (not my advisor, the other one). It was pretty good, and we stayed there for several hours afterwards, talking.

On Saturday, I went to see the HMS Belfast (a battleship permanently moored in the Thames River), because I knew no one would want to come see it with me. I also climbed the Monument (to the Great Fire). It's a very steep spiral staircase (311 steps!), but once you get to the top, the view is pretty good. I also felt a sense of accomplishment, that I was able to get this far up just by climbing. Coming back down, it's a little vertiginous, and hard to pass people on the narrow staircase, but I definitely think it was worth it. Pictures will follow later. I also went to this huge toy store, Hamely's, and wandered around quite a while before buying a few things. This again proves to me that I can have a good time in London by myself, as long as I get off my lazy butt (which I didn't do on Friday, in case you're wondering.)

    Not too many people are actually interested in going, and nightskyre changed his vote to "Saturday night" - so, Saturday it is! Probably…
