So I just got a flyer stating that there have been robberies in my building. I'm not concerned because I'm kind of used to it, at GW there was multiple robberies a week in most of the dorms I lived in. I'm just going to keep my windows closed when I leave and lock my door. Though, I'm not on the ground floor, so I think only spider man would try to break through my window (the robbers got in through some idiots who left their ground floor windows open when they went out for the night DUMMYS!!!). But here's the amazing part from the flyer, it's so British in it's wording, the following phrase would never be seen in my GW crime alerts: "I'm taking this opportunity to tell you what we know about the criminals and their modus operandi." Yes, he used a Latin phrase to describe the hoody's strategy.
Almond Croissant from EAT
EAT is my favourite (don't laugh at me, I'm trying to get used to British spelling for essay/dissertation purposes) British food chain. I like Pret, but I find EAT to have a better variety of food and going along those lines, more exciting food. But, their almond croissant disappointed me. There was simply nothing special about this croissant. It felt like a mass produced croissant you'd buy at tescos. The almond filling was standard. The pastry itself was actually under my standards. Size was UK average, but unlike most almond croissants, I wasn't sad when it ended. And I know that chains can do excellent almond croissant's, Cafe Nero's version is amazing (I'll write a review next time I consume one), but I will definitely not buy an EAT almond croissant again, unless fuelled by desperation.
On a side note, in the picture there is also an EAT yoghurt with fresh banana, honey and grape nuts. These are delicious and I actively missed them when I returned to American from Oxford. Though, with the almond croissant I feel like I've had a suga ovaload.
