England London Shopping

16 March 2010

Shopping and stuff

Not a lot to report today, I did a lot of shopping, or looking at things.
I did go to a huge toy shop, but I forget its name, the scalextric track was quite cool, I had to elbow some children out the way to get a turn and then I wasnt about to give up the controller.
Then I wandered around soho and found a good spot for lunch, that stole my idea. Some time ago I wanted to start a shop where you designed your own lunch on a computer and then they made it for you, and the computer told you the calories and fat etc and kept stats for you. This place did exactly all of that. I had this delicious pita stuffed with things that are apparently good for you, but somehow the actual pita bread was much nicer than any other.
In the evening I went for a big walk, and ended up at wagamama, the very same as we have in Australia. And like the Australian ones I was the only male in the place. A bunch of schoolgirls sat near me, and all of them had about 20 modifications to their choice to make, because they dont like bean shoots, or coriander, or basically anything, none of it based on allergies but just dislikes, so they ended up as best I could tell with chicken and white rice with soy sauce only.

England-London-Shopping - Welcome to the future, gee whiz it should be fantastic.

This is the cool toy store, its 5 floors high, although mostly stuffed toys they did have an awesome lego selection including a place you can mess about in the store and build stuff, which I did for a while until it felt a bit creepy.

I stood and pondered this sign briefly, and a guy handing out pamphlets from the orange shop said 'awesome deal dont you think?' and I told him is it free or 15 pounds? and he said its free. So I said great, give me a handset and I'll be off then. And he said all you need to do is sign up for 24 months at 15 pounds a month. And I asked hows that free then? And he didnt know. So I whipped out my camera and lined up to take the photo, to remind me of my discussion, and he stands between me and the sign and says I cant photograph that. So I say ok I will photograph you instead then...smile! And he gets mad and tells me hes getting the manager, great I say as he walks into the store in a hurry, as I take my photo and walk off.


England-London-Shopping - This is my dinner from wagamama, I ordered extra chilli's on the side, but they were about as hot as capsicums, still it was quite nice.
