Reasons Why MacBeth Rocks, and Why I Can't Be Away From My People For More Than Two Weeks

That was probably the longest blog title ever, but whatever... this is my blog and I do what I wannntt! Yesterday the roomies and I headed out to our nearest shopping establishment. We have yet to discover what they call them here, but we know for sure that they are not called "malls." Lib got some great stuff at gap, and I was IN LOVE with this one skirt there, but they only had it in a size too big, and two sizes too small. Needless to say, I was bummed (although happy that with all the chocolate and bread and butter I've been eating, that I could still fit in my regular size, haha), but we truged on. We found this store that had some adorable clothes, and was like a semi-more expensive H&M. Caitlin and I actually ended up finding a skirt for me and a dress for her out of the same pattern! We fully expect to be wearing these outfits to football games to match :)

After that, we came back to the flat, grabbed dinner and headed to the Globe for a showing of MacBeth. After being told we were in the standing gallery, and that we were going to have to pop our heads out of these black sheets to appear as floating heads, I was not looking forward to going. Fortunately, there was room beyond the black sheets to stand as a normal human, and I took full advantage of that. I have read MacBeth several times, and have seen a few different versions, but this was definitely the best. The three witches hung out in the standing gallery before the show, and freaked poor Felicia out so much! The acting was amazing, and for someone like me, who doesn't really enjoy the "thea-tah" beyond a musical, I was throughly entertained. It helped that Malcolm was absolutely gorgeous, haha. But everything was so realistic, which is amazing considering the constraints the Globe puts on, as it wants to be as true to Shakespeare's day as possible. We were all exhausted after standing for three hours, so we came home, sat around a bit, and headed to bed.

I knew I was becoming a grown up when I woke up at eight this morning, on one of my free days, to head to a market! I am becoming more and more like my mother everyday, haha. No mom, I didn't say it was a bad thing. After getting ready, Lib, Cait, Jenna and I headed to Camden Market for some shopping. It was awesome, and I could have spent all day there. There were a ton of clothing options, so much jewelry, and food galore! I even found something that I.AM.IN.LOVE.WITH. for a certain someone, that I am not entirely sure I can part with enough to give to him ;). We had a great time at the market, although we picked the hottest day in London to go (it hit around 80 here, so hot, haha). After that, we headed to London Bridge to grab a meal and ended up at a Gourmet Burger Kitchen. The burgers were good, as we all were lacking on protein, but they charged us two dollars a glass for tap water... RIDICULOUS. Needless to say, our waitress didn't get much of a tip (but that isn't a big deal, here they don't tip near the amount we do). After that, we headed to the Tate Modern Museum to see some art, that we were a little freaked out by, honestly. Some of the pieces were nice, but there were some human torture exhibitions that were definitely not my scene. They had a neat gift shop though, and I got a few cool souvenirs. We headed back to the flat shortly after that, and I fell asleep for a bit to Ice Age II, haha. The tv here is definitely interesting :)

Tonight was a bittersweet night for me though. Everyone else is out right now, doing all kinds of crazy things, and I'm here. But I am here gladly because I got to see my sister before she headed off to her senior prom. My best friend, Heather, skyped her for me so I got to see about thirty minutes of all of the events, including her finishing up getting ready, getting her corsage, and starting to take pictures. I may or may not have gotten a little teary at one point because almost everyone I love (minus Stuart) was in one room together, gathered around her and there for her as she got ready (Mama, Daddy, Hev and Lance). I know they were there for her though, so that made me feel better. She looked ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS and I am so glad I got to see her off to her senior prom. Man, I am so old! I remember going to my own prom not so long ago, and those same people in that room, were there with me haha.

Tomorrow Miss Mecklenburg herself, Miss Emily Smith, along with my love Lindsay will be making their way into London town from ole Parie. I CANNOT WAIT to see them! I have been missing all that delta love I have become accustomed to. I have no idea what we will do, but it is sure to be an adventure :)

P.S. A special thanks to my best friend, Miss Heather Kane. You were the best surrogate sister Nat could have asked for, and I am so grateful that you were able to be there for her and stand in when I couldn't. You are an amazing friend and I am so lucky to have you. LOVE YOUUUU :)

Peace and Blessings, only eleven and a half more days til I'm back in the 757, Peace and Blessings
