London, London Bridge

Today I am leaving to take my brilliant sister (Dr. Lizzie) to Oxford, where she will be living for two years doing a post-doc (that's a fancy word for what people do after they get their Ph.D.--because obviously, six years of graduate work is not enough!).

After making sure she is safely ensconced on the Oxford campus (where I am convinced, after reading His Dark Materials, by Phillip Pullman, and all of the Harry Potter books, that everyone will be wearing pointed wizard caps and secret doors will give entrance to alternative worlds) I'll be chilling in London for a bit, doing various fun things that may or may not include:
1. Taking the tube.
2. Using the word "chuffed," whenever possible.
3. Ordering chips, receiving fries, and laughing like a maniac.
4. Scoping cute british boys.
5. Meeting my UK editor!!

(This list is ordered inversely, from least to most important.)

I am SO. FRIGGING. EXCITED. Next time I post it will be Lauren Oliver: UK edition.

You should order a chip butty and be amazed. Oh also, buy some malteasers from the shop, they are yummy and only available in the UK.

Ooooh, so jealous!!! Have a great time in London, it's my favourite city in the world! One of my favourite things about it (apart from the tube and the bookshops and parks and the Queen and stuff) is being surrounded by people with the British accent, which I personally adooooore! OMG, so excited for you now, have fuuuun, whatever you'll be doing! Hope we can see some pictures on here once you come back! :)
