BBC, Wicked, Harrods and Spider-Man.
Yesterday my friends and I (minus Kelli) had signed up to see 'Wicked' at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. But, before that we had plans to go to The Amazing Spider-Man premier in Leicester Square (with KellI!).

We got to the theatre with plenty of time. The seats we got were amazing, and only £17.50! We were on the main level and quite close up! Katherine and I ended up having seats with one inbetween from each other, and ironically enough a girl from my class that I'd gone exploring with earlier had the one in the middle! So she and I switched and all was well. The theatre was beautiful, and even had little binoculars that you could rent for £1 on the seats! Speaking of, the seats weren't very comfortable- they had an obvious butt imprint on them so it was hard to get comfortable unless you weren't sitting in the indent. No fear, that was only a minor issue. Once the "curtain" rose........ (I'm taking a moment here out of pure utter disbelief)..... the show was PHENOMENAL. Wicked is my favorite show for a reason and all my friends that hadn't seen it before became Wicked! I was surprised how easy it was to understand them (with accents) because they were very subtle ones (I'm sure that was intentional. Especially since Elphaba spoke at the end and was OBVIOUSLY Scottish). Their voices were INCREDIBLE. I imagine Angels to sing like Glinda and Elphie.
And so far today, I had class, nothing special, and then Katherine and I met up with Brandi and Lindsay who were at HARROD's (they'd gone for their class). My goodness I almost had a heart attack there! It was beautiful....... but EXPENSIVE. We walked in by the purses and I quickly say 'CHANEL' on the wall. It was like Heaven.
We stopped at H&M on the way back and I ended up getting a purse. A slightly bigger one because my umbrella doesn't easily fit in my others. I think we have plans to go to Hyde Park in a little bit... But I need to do my homework and Skype my mom during her lunch break!
