I finally went to the Borough Market! Kelly and I are making it our mission to hit up all the markets we can until she leaves in June. Our next trip is Brick Lane and Columbia Road, which I've already been to, but I can definitely go again. (And we're going to see Fast and Furious 5 because we're suckers for an action movie.)

Researching for a new book. Life is hard.
Our GM received a present from The Cupcake Company. Megan made his goddaughter a Barbie birthday cake and it was a mega hit. These beautifully decorated carrot and cream cheese icing cupcakes were divine. She might even get a book deal!
I'd just like to point out the fact that I'm in London and I'm wearing sandals. Yes. Summer is finally coming!

I'm making it my mission to go to every London weekend market and so far I'm doing pretty well. I've been to Portobello, Camden, Columbia Road Flower Market, Brick Lane... and last weekend was Broadway Market, which is only a 20 minute walk from my place. Meg and Kate are rapidly becoming my market buddies and I'm sure I won't be able to go anywhere without them soon enough!
I was a bit naughty and bought a slice of custard tart and a Chorizo Scotch Egg. I'd never had one before and was rather curious to try it. The guy at the stall was really lovely too - he cut it in half and salt and peppered it for me (he didn't for the lady in front of me, hehe).
A boy, an abbey, a protest... and Kevin Spacey and Jude Law

Chris came to stay with me last weekend, and we smashed some sight seeing in a couple of hours: Trafalgar Square (with the lions), Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey... and then we were almost trampled by a protest (I say trampled, but it was a peaceful protest) lead by Kevin Spacey and Jude Law. Chris felt his London weekend was well worth it.

I've been a fan of Dyna Moe for some time now. I discovered her, like most, on Flickr uploading her Mad Men drawings, but her latest art has really made me chuckle. She's got the hipster animals down pat! (Psst, if you've been living under a rock, Dyna also designed Mad Men Yourself.)
