It cost me 41p

The first morning with my newly-arranged bedroom. It feels much more spacious, as far as sleeping goes, and I can turn off the light when I'm finished reading. I fear, however, that the layout may be a poor choice from a Feng Shui point of view.

I raised the issue of the gas un-bill with my flatmates, and as a side-effect I managed to speak with Corine for the second or third time since we've been living together. We didn't find a resolution to the credit on the bill, though — nearly £200 is staying out of my flatmates' hands (for now).

I sent a postcard to New Zealand, too, at DJ's special request. I was going to write Here's your postcard. Enjoy. and leave it mostly blank but I just couldn't do it. Instead, I wound up mumbling some nonsense about Burger King and pie. Sadly, it would have been better blank. I hope she understands.

I found the PC World store that Zack suggested I look in for a laptop, and discovered the previously-unknown districts of Stepney and Mile End (I think). They seem to have a similar assortment of takeaway joints, newsagents and money-lending shops that everyone else has.

I introduced myself to the Friends In London mailing list. Oh, and I have that interview with the media agency scheduled for Thursday.
