Starbucks is my friend

So, I made it to London. The journey was quiet and the train was late, but I'd planned for that. I attempted a Skype IM conversation with a mate in New Zealand, but the on-board wi-fi was not overly impressed with the whole idea, so I started watching Castle instead. I got 10 minutes into the first episode and was already in love.

So now I've had lunch from Pret and am happily ensconsed in Starbucks with coffee and wi-fi that is free, thanks to my Starbucks card. Yes, I, for one, welcome our evil overlords, Starbucks and Google. They are my friends.

I think I need to put together a filter for future train travel - one that cuts out all the LoLcats and comics and other image-heavy feeds. Train wi-fi is not up to that stuff.

My appointment is at 3.00pm, 50 minutes from now. I should be able to get from Kings X to Charlotte St if I leave in 20 minutes. After that is trickier. Appointment will be maybe 15-20 mins. Then I have to get all the way to Shepherd's Bush, pick up keys, go on to flat, dump stuff and be back to Leicester Sqare for 6.00pm. I think it might be tight.

One final thing to share, before I forget: Are You A Nerd, Dork, Geek or Dweeb?, courtesy of David Hewlett on Twitter. I can now officially confirm my status as a geek! :D

So, which are you?
