One of my favourite things in life is when you find bonus time. Like if you thought an hour of your time would be taken up with something, but then you no longer have to do it, so it's like your day just got one hour longer.
This happens to me when someone doesn't show up to an experiment I'm supposed to be running. I could focus on the fact that I wasted 15 minutes waiting for them, and I'll have to spend another hour sometime in the future to replace them, but screw that! In the short term, it's an extra hour.
Yesterday it was beautiful outside, so I spent my bonus hour taking the bus way too far past my stop, then walking until I found something interesting. I found myself in Coffee Culture on Richmond. It's a new coffee franchise that's sorta like Starbucks but sorta not. I got an iced cappuccino and it was pretty damn tasty. Plus they have free WiFi, so I could work on my paper about zombies and (vampires) somewhere other than my boring old usual desk.
I should find some friends next time, though. I always feel like a lonely douchebag taking up a whole table by myself. Nobody likes a lonely douchebag.
Every coffee shop (and there are so many in London now...like one on every block. It's trying to be like a big city I guess) should have WiFi. Starbucks should be able to afford it, with their $5.00 coffees. Starbucks, you can be a real douchebag sometimes.
I just really like writing "douchebag" today.
OMG YOU GUYS LOOK THIS COFFEE HAS A DOG IN IT!!!!!!
