The comic convention is all done and over with now, but I still have a couple days left to enjoy London and see all the sights. Today, I went down to take a ride on the London eye. I took plenty of pictures and video while I was up there, but then it rained just as we reached the top, which was annoying. I had a great view up there for a couple minutes, but all things concerned, it really wasn’t worth the hour-long wait in line. On the way back across Westminster Bridge, I stopped to buy a gift for Vivian: her name made up in a piece of wire, courtesy of a street peddler right there on the bridge.
After the ride on the eye, I took the tube down to Camden Town to meet up with my comic friends to see a movie called Hot Fuzz, which was an absolutely hilarious cop buddy movie from the guys who made Sean of the Dead. I hope it comes out in the US so I can take my brother to see it. Before the movie, we got to pose behind a promotion cut out poster for Meet the Robinsons. Yet another chance to ham it up.
Afterwards, we went to crash a nearby pub called the Misty Moon. I had Shepherd’s Pie and chips, which was a tasty new English dish for me. There was a fair amount of tomfoolery all around before we all headed on home.
Two days left!
