I'll have lots of antics to report. Today, I went to do my laundry, the soap and paying machines ate two pounds, and I met some dude who had just flown back from Germany (where he watched England-Trinidad and Tobago) and I bought him a 59p can of cider while our clothes spun.

Then he dragged me to this youth hostel in the neighborhood called the generator, where it was pints for a pound, and now I'm using their internet room. (He's gone off to cadge a shower because he's not exactly staying here.).
Why the fuck didn't I travel through Europe when I graduated? This would be awesome if I were 22.
Some other time, I'll tell you about the New York-ophile German girl who's moving to Argentina I met. She had me doing Jager shots at 1 a.m. last Sunday.
I predict that this trip ends with Flop carrying the Avian Flu.

As to why Flop bought cider for some dude while their "clothes spun," then accompanied the guy for an off-the-books shower, I'll leave commentor Evil Girl to worry about.

Because he had 15 quid to his name and I felt like being generous, you wanker.

Yes, I took a cheap shot. You would've done the same thing.

If you're picking up guys with 15 quid to their name at the laundromat, I suspect you'll come home with more than just the Avian Flu.
