after a 17 hour flight and a wee transit in dubai inbetween, i arrived in london at 6:30pm last night (sunday night 28th dec)

um, on the airplane i watched kung fu panda (that was made of awesome) and sisterhood of the travelling pants 2 and wild child (so bad) and angus, thongs & full frontal snogging (that really is the story of my life) and wall-e (super cute) and i started watching the dark knight, but i fell asleep. kev, i promise i’ll finish it, and i agree it’s awesome thus far.

ummmm… the old guy i sat next to from perth to dubai was friendly. the old guy i sat next to from dubai to london wouldn’t leave me alone, even when i was trying to sleep – which was most frustrating.

i got to bec & josh’s apartment at about 8:30 and went to bed and then at 2am jo and matt woke me up by jumping on me.

today we went to the andy warhol exhibit and we also hit top shop and fuck that was like the most insane thing i’ve ever done in my life.

imagine a huge crowd of frenzied shoppers, and then times it by a kabillion and then give them ALL claws and then put them in a four storey dept store full of cheap dresses. then times it by a kabillion again. i almost died of overwhelmingness.

um, there’s not alot of other entirely interesting things to report, i spent the day with jo, justin, amy and davies and we’re hanging in tonight. (we being me, matt and jo)

it’s cold like melbourne is cold, which means i’m thus far dealing with the weather fine.

i don’t have any photos yet – i should have some in the next few days (westminster, 10 downing st, buckingham palade & a few other epic places are on the agenda tomorrow) – i know you’re all dying to see georgia in the northern hemisphere.

i hear it’s super insane hot back home, which makes me almost glad i’m here.

also, matt and jo are currently talking about vomit and stomach lining, it’s pretty feraltastic.

i best be off, it’s almost midnight and we have to be up early tomorrow!

oh yes! just before i forget:

1. tomorrow morning jo and i are going to try and get cheap tickets to wicked! jealous, chloe?

2. number one fan, have you seen twilight yet? report back to me on your “scientific findings” from the film. there are posters EVERYWHERE!

3. kt, pls don’t leave perth, i want you to be there when i get home.

hai to everyone reading this, i miss you all, but i’m having fun and… that’s all!

lots and lots of love!

p.s. if you want a postcard, facebook me your address and i’ll try to postcard you.

I have a cold, or the flu, or something like that. And I’m stuck at home, feeling like crapola on a Saturday night. Yup, my life is super tragic.

So, I checked out the TV guide – not alot on. Jumanji’s on, but how many times have I seen that? And I didn’t really enjoy it.

Speaking of Jumanji, I saw that cheap, futuristic remake of it, Zathura, not long ago. It was shockingly appalling. So, whilst I try and work out whether or not I am capable of walking to the video store and back in my ill state, I shall explain to you why I didn’t like Zathura:

Well, it had a lameo story line, it wasn’t all that thrilling and one of the boys (Walter, played by Josh Hutcherson) gets a wish and he wishes for a football. Excuse me, why wouldn’t you wish yourself home and safe? Clearly that would be the intelligent thing to do. But no, he wishes for a football. Man, you can get those back home, where it’s SAFE! Duh!

But see, I could put up with all of that. I could also deal with the creepy looking alien things and the fact that somehow, despite having been attacked by an intense amount of fireballs, and the outside of the house being almost nothing, the interior of the house seemed to retain most of it’s actual structure. (Although, the furniture suffered – which was sad.)

What I truely couldn’t accept was the fact that an astronaut (Dax Shepard) arrived. And not just any astronaut. No, this particular astronaut happened to be the future-self of middle child Walter. And future Walter, who doesn’t let onto his identity, has returned back from the future to make sure that present Walter doesn’t wish away his little brother – because that’s what future Walter stupidly did.

Actually, wait, I could deal with all of that. That was kind’ve cute, in a lameo, kids-Hollywood, teach-you-a-lesson kind of of way.

See, the disturbing this was when older sister Lisa (Kristen Stewart) was unfrozen (she’d been freezed early in the movie), she took one look at future Walter and it was love at first sight – on her end only. I mean real Hollywood style, eyes-get-bright, romantical-music-plays, breath-is-caught kind of love at first sight. Yup, Lisa fell for her future brothers self:

Zathura 1: Being dazzled by future brothers self. Not unlike being dazzled by Edward Cullen – cept Edward’s not incest.

And she followed him around and clung to him like some love sick puppy for a good chunk of the rest of the movie:

Zathura 2: Following sexy future brothers self’s orders, in the hopes of surviving and sexing him.

Seriously, I don’t care if she didn’t know he was her future brothers self! What is this movie trying to tell kids?: “If your future brothers self comes back and doesn’t tell you who he is, it’s totally ok to want to sex him up.”? Man, that’s just sick. Especially for a movie with a G/PG rating.

I’ve got a good mind to report the Zathura people to child services! Yes that includes you, Kristen Stewart, for signing up for such a sicko movie. (Then, they will just have to cast me as Bella in Twilight. Yay! We all win! :P)

No Kristen Stewart, do not give me that look you gave your future brothers self when you realised he was your future brothers self:

Zathura 3: Kristen fears Georgia might actually report her to child services/realises she totally had the sexy hots for her future bros self.

Maybe next time, let’s not sign up for an incestous movie. Yeah, uh-huh, mmm-hmmm.

So now, I really don’t want to watch Jumanji, because it’s just going to remind me of Zathura and thus disturb me.

It’s a Saturday night – why aren’t they catering to all the sick and/or examing older teenage crowd?

I wonder if Chloe has any good dvds hidden in her bedroom?
