so what have you done since your last post?

I've read quite a bit, hung out with friends, went to Scotland for a few days, passed out in a coffee shop 3 times and spent some time in an ambulance, ate some really good expensive Japanese food... nothing much really!

By the way I'm fine I passed out after having a typhoid injection. I must have been hyped up about it and when I sat down to read a book and treat myself to a latte for having survived the injection I ended up knocking drink and book onto the floor. Then when one of the baristas went to get me a glass of water I blacked out again. A customer came to my aid and jokingly said that I must have been reading something sensational and I remember saying "No no I finished Fanny Hill last week". Ha! They jumped on the phone to the ambulance and I managed to call a friend to come help me out and must have blacked out again. I have a fear of needles and the adrenaline must have caught up with me. Unfortunately the book is ruined, a library copy of Cranford so I must hunt another copy down to replace it. Passing out is no fun and I apologized profusely because I was so embarrassed. I'm just glad I was in a public place where people were able to help me. And thank goodness ambulances are free in the UK!

Can't believe I only have 11 days left here! :( I'm trying to make the most of it. Off to see Prince Caspian in a bit and tonight I've been invited to a cocktail party. More good times to come!

. listening . the warmth . incubus . make yourself .

Do you need typhoid injections to go to Scotland. ;-)

I hope the rest of your trip goes smoothly.
