Amethyst and I finally caught up on our sleep Saturday night. bless. cheers for 80's and Motown music, chocolate, cherry NyQuil and cozy warm beds in Bloomsbury.

Yesterday afternoon I was sitting in my room reading and I heard this song blaring out of a window below me. The song was really familiar and it sounded v. cool and I was thinking 'I've heard that before....what is that?' Um, it was Slashing Beauty, my band. mwahaha. My landlord Bill was playing our songs really loudly downstairs. He thinks we're really good! He told me so 3 times yesterday. *L* It was just strange feeling to hear my band randomly like that for the first time. tres cool.

So yeah, we've recorded. It's not the best recording. The only real "problem" with it is that the vocals (ie, me) isn't loud enough. But it's good enough to hand out to family, friends and local venues, and that's what we need right now. I'm also working on the webpage slowly but'll get there.

Last night Becky and myself went to Chinatown for dinner and then proceded to have our photo taken outside in Chinatown..(pssh..I know, tourists!) Becky also got some Absinthe and Cuban cigars in Soho (I wonder how she's doing with US customs today? mwhahaha) Then we ended up talking to this guy, Jarev in the lobby of the Strauton Hotel until midnight. Jarev moved here from Pakistan and he's one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. He knew volumes on every subject that was brought up. We basically talked about capitalism is destructive and solutions to it, and the US Government.

We both agreed that a big problem with the US (Becky actually brought this up) is that most of the people don't care. As long as people feel that they're safe and they're alright, they honestly don't care. Capitalism makes people busy. Go to work, go home, watch TV, rush here, rush there...I feel that most "typical" americans don't have any time to think about world issues. It's a really sad thought but I feel that it's true.

Turns out that Jarev's best friend owns a Socialist bookstore on Gower St., which is a 2 minute walk from me. I think I'll be going there...*raises eyebrow*

Also turns out that I have an 8 year old fan! long-time LJ friends may remember me talking about a certain lil boy 3 year old Nicholas from Siberia. (he really is THE cutest little thing ever..) Anyway, his older sister, Melanie is (according to my mother) "fascinated" with me. She goes into my old room and looks at all my things and and is wants to know all about "Christina who lives in London". She really wants to visit me, but she can't, because, well, she's 8. *L* Her mom (my mom's best friend Charlene) even asked her what she wants to be when she grows up and she said "I want to be just like Christina!"...awwww..I admit, my heart melted.

I'm taking advantage of this while I can, because once she's a teenager, I don't think she'll want to be like me....just a thought.

Now a stupid first/last thing and then I'm outta here:
