Still Waiting

That’s right. Still waiting to see if my pepper seeds from Wahaca at Canary Wharf will actually grow. I hope for Wahaca’s sake that they do.


Last Day

How did I spend my last day in London? The sex exhibition at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington and Mexican food from Wahaca at Canary Wharf. Oh yeah.

I finally got to see Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno which I saw on that Sunday morning show that has all the suns everywhere on set. What is that show called? You know what I’m talking about it. It’s probably called the Sunday Morning show or something like that…I’m pretty sure it’s on CBS.

Anyway, I’m back in Chicagoland now so this blog will probably be on hiatus until September.

If You Find Yourself at Canary Wharf Around Lunchtime, Dear Lord, Run Don’t Walk

Just trust me on this one. It is no fun to find yourself at Canada Square (the shopping area where the tube drops you off) and see the sea of ravenous business people heading your direction. It makes me shudder to think about it and I’ve only been so unlucky with my timing to experience this phenomenon twice.

In other news, it hailed today!

BBC News: Stuffed toy tiger sparks police hunt

No, don’t worry it’s not the stuffed toy tiger I photographed weeks ago near Southwark Park but is located in Hedge End, Southampton.

Quite a laugh though. It seems Londoners are better at picking out the fake tigers from the real ones!

Death by International Relations Theory

I should be studying the Gramscian strain of historical materialism, but I’m having fun with photos instead!

17 Mai, Gratulerer med dagen!

Happy Norwegian Constitution Day from London’s Southwark Park!

JLS Condoms!

I’ll be the first to admit that like me a good boy band (ahem, Hanson anyone?!) But could you imagine the Jonas Brothers putting themselves on condoms? Cue the evangelical backlash and mothers of pre-teen girls organizing a “Mothers Against Sex” campaign.

Anyway, the British boy band JLS has done just that. Being that I’m too scared to be seen taking photos of condoms in Tesco you’ll have to do with the generic from the Durex website.

Whitney Houston and Cyndi Lauper Make Revision Possible

The only thing that can get me in the mood to revise are these lovely ladies.

My friend Nic and fellow IR student put it best in his facebook status: ‘Did I sign up for “Latin American Politics” or “A Thorough History of Latin America from the Aztecs to the 21st Century”?’

One exam down, three to go! QMUL you will not defeat me.
