Our first day consisted of a flight, seemingly endless subway- sorry, MTR journeys, and the most pointless shopping trip imaginable. It started at 8:30 and finished at (I think, my memory often fails me) 9:30, which meant that halfway through our shopping spree, all the shops had closed. I did manage to buy one hideously expensive thing though. Which will be revealed when I get round to photographing it.
After the fruitless shopping attempt, the whole group took a walk along the..pier (?) thing and we all sat down; deep inside we're all narcissists so of course there were pictures.

Ooh, I almost forgot. There is a video. Oh yes. A VIDEO. It's completely inane, and there are a few seconds of me trying to find a star in the night sky with my camera (I swear, at the time it was right there) but it offers valuable insight into the conversations of teenage girls. And how weird my accent sounds now, after being surrounded by American accents for three years. I was sure I still sounded British. Well, anyway, here it is in all it's dim glory.
Shoot. The video won't upload...this is awkward.
Well, I just watched two episodes of Being Human while waiting for the video to load. Being Human episodes are an hour long. And they're amazing. You'd think a show based on a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost living together would be ridiculous but no. Somehow, they've made it addictive; not in the guilty Jersey Shore (confession: I've never watched it, but from the popularity of the show and the many, many articles about it I'm guessing it's so bad that it's good) way but in the House/Black Books/Skins/Misfits way. It helps that Annie is Sugar from Sugar Rush, George was in Doctor Who for an episode or two, and Mitchell is...well, a vampire. With eyes that occasionally turn black. Who else really wants Annie and Mitchell to get together? I'm only on the third episode (damn my slow download speed) but I love them together. This post was not meant to turn into a rave about Being Human.
Oh god, my mother is singing My Heart Will Go On.
That's probably a signal for me to leave.
