Cold and rainy...must be London

Here I am, back in London. I am staying in Piccadilly, which is a first for me. Every time I get used to a hotel and the surrounding area, my company takes mpany takes it off the list and I have pick a new one and start the process all over again. Since I am only here for a few days, I guess it is not a big deal.

One benefit of the hotel is that it is right across the street from Hatchards, which is a very good bookstore. So, once I was settled I headed over there and got a few books. After that, I went to the Cafe Nero at St James church and had a latte. It is much cooler than Tokyo and it was nice to sit outside without sweating.

The flight was OK...I slept most of the way and the plane did not crash (Preyash/Glenn: sorry but it looks like I get to keep my plasma TV a bit longer). I flew on BA, which has limited its meal service because of trouble with the company that provides catering at Heathrow. Why that impacts flights from Tokyo is a good question, I guess, but I did not ask - I am getting used to the sub-standard service and all I wanted to do was sleep. (They did send me an e-mail on Saturday to let me know. I guess they realised if they had sent it earlier in the week, I would have switched flights. To reward their cleverness, I might start flying Virgin every so often)

Anyway - it is 6pm on Sunday night and I have to figure out what I am having for dinner. Thanks to BA, I am starving. And I must be jet-lagged if I am complaining about missing airline food.

Hi there,

Hope you're enjoying London. Should you pass a Laura Ashley shop, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT purchase duvets for me. I got them at Ikea and discovered they stuff into the European covers just fine.

Terri's stitches were removed last Thursday. She says she's doing just fine.

Tige would like your email address. He has a screenplay published at www.scriptbuddy.com. Look for it under screenwriter community. He says he'd like some feedback.

Visit Harrod's and say, "hi" for me.

Love, Sandy
