tonight! tonight!

I spent the night in a pub watching the final game of THE rugby (as it is referred to as...), England vs. France. England lost. Rugby is fine, I mean, I'm not a sports fanatic in any sense, but it's an entertaining game to watch. More entertaining was the Chicken, leak and ham pie plus, bread and butter pudding I consumed. YUM!

But, the whole time watching the rugby I had two things in my mind, well, three. The film Invictus in general and the New Zealand All Black's war dance seen in it.

Epic. But then on youtube I found an even more epic version, where they have a dueling war dance with Tonga. It reminded me of West Side Story (weird?).

But also my mind stayed beyond rugby to the greatest sports thing I have ever witnessed (on youtube). Yes, I mean the Liverpool Football Club's theme song being belted out by a stadium filled with manly men. A theme song that originate from the Broadway classic, Carousal.

I now am a Liverpool supporter, just for that song choice. I also plan on getting my mom a "You will never walk alone" scarf for mother's day.

In unrelated news, tomorrow is not going to be fun. So much work. Ooof.

I'm Not in America

This morning I ventured down Gray's Inn Road to get breakfast and read the Guardian at my fav local/locally owned cafe, THQ. THQ has amazing food, amazing coffee and seriously the best carrot cake I'm EVER had. It also has really friendly staff. And free wireless. And they let you linger. I love THQ. So this post is not against THQ in any way. They're just being euro.

I decided to go for something American this morning and ordered the french toast with bacon. Yum. I knew the bacon would be English bacon (like ham), so I was cool with that. What I was not ready for was one piece of french toast. That's all I got, one effing piece.

It was DELICIOUS. But I was hoping for three more slices. All I could think of was ihop and the pile I would have gotten there. Or to go local, the french toast I would have gotten from like the Coal Tower in Pittsford. It was so sad, because it was amazing, but gone so so so fast. Tear.

Things I do to Procrastinate take 4

One more youtube video, seriously, watch this, I nearly fell on my floor laughing.

Annnnd another really good Kate Bush cover

I love around 2:10 when some guy shouts "IT'S NOT TRUE!" Good work Patrick Wolf. This clip, which clearly is in America, also makes me a little nostalgic for home. Weirdly...

Oh Natasha Khan, why can't I be you?!?

An amazing Morning Becomes Eclectic version of Bat for Lashes Siren Song. Another song I consider one of my theme songs. Which is kind of ridiculous, but ehhhhh not really in my mind. I'd explain further but then... Seriously though, what an amazing song. This is Why I'm Single has been so music heavy over the last few days, hope dats cool withchu.
