Icecreamists, Covent Garden

Smooth, delicious ice cream with a sexy, gothic vibe and subversive twist.  The owner says he wants to do for frozen desserts what the Sex Pistols did for music.  Highly recommended.  

Pistachio and white chocolate.  DELICIOUS!

You may have heard about the ice cream made from breast milk known as "The Baby GooGoo."  I have not tried this delicacy, but it seems to be very popular!  Another ice cream flavor they are known for is "Sex Bomb," made from natural Brazilian stimulants! :-)

Romantic fun in the Apple Store

Al Zaytoon

Enjoyed a delicious Lebanese dinner with my bear at Al Zaytoon on Gray's Inn Road.  Great tabbouleh, hommos, fruit juice, and schawarma sandwiches!

Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows (part 2)

James and I went to see the 3-D version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 2).  I laughed, I cried, and I was on the edge of my seat during the entire film!  I'm surprised James's hand didn't break since I was squeezing it so hard!  The Harry Potter films really get my adrenaline flowing!

I adore Carluccios, and I really missed their coffee while I was on vacation in the US.  I think the Carluccios staff missed me too.  Today they made a special latte for me with a chocolate flower design!  Beautiful and delicious!

Mystery of the colored clothespin clips

Someone keeps leaving these little packets of small multi-colored clothespin clips in my mailbox with no letter or information about where they are coming from.  I have never seen anything like these in my life, and I have no idea who is leaving them for me!  Please let me know if you have any information!  I must solve this mystery.

weird art

I'm back in London after a few weeks in the US, and some strange art has appeared on my floor at Goodenough College.  Not sure what to make of this painting...doesn't exactly seem appropriate for the halls of international student housing...
