Buses

I am taking the bus now to work but I realized yesterday that I know where to get on the bus in the morning, but I actually can't figure out where to pick up the bus in the afternoon to go home. It drops me off on a one way street so I don't know where to catch it to get back. Will figure that out now, but highly frustrating last night when I was trying to find it to go home.

To the internets to find a bus map! 

Greetings from London

Hi everyone - Finally made it here lowdown on what has conspired so far:

I am permitted to work

I have now received permission from the UK to work there. Now I just have to get the visa which should only take a week or so. My tenative date for leaving is now the 18th of May.

Few things - Does anyone need a full size bed with frame?

Ikea Chest with 8 Drawers. It is 33'' tall, 63'' wide, 16'' deep 

If you are interested in either of these things, I will be renting a uhaul and can drop them off for you. 

London Recap

Sorry its been a little bit since I posted last. Tonight will also include AI recaps. But I was in London last week trying to get my bearing for my move next month. I met the team and got a feel for where things are in the office and where I am going to eat lunch for the next two years at least.  Interesting things:

- There is a cheese shop by the office that has cheeses that have labels on them like "made by Jim and Sue of Leistershire" How fun! 

- Covent Gardens is a very touristy area so I am sure it will be a tad annoying in the summer but it was fine while I was there, just a lot of people sort of looking up not knowing where they are going so I felt at home.

- I went to a restaurant that the waiters dressed like monks and they served belgium beer. It was good.

I am really excited about the move. I have a lot to do still but the movers are coming next friday to put my stuff on a ship and I will see it sometime in June.

Hi everyone - Here in London for the week meeting lots of people and trying to stay awake from jet lag. The office is very nice here lively and messy just the way I like things. I am being hounded by estate agents trying to pressure me into finding a place to live TODAY because nothing will be available tomorrow. I keep getting lost but its kind of fun.

The weather is cold and sunny so thanks to Megan for letting me borrow scarves, if I didn't have them I would be freezing.

But really - Do I have any volunteers to blog AI tonight?
