Pike Place



So I went to Seattle over the weekend! It was pretty awesome. I went with some girl friends, and we had a triumphant time. We spent most of Saturday at Pike Place Market, and then spent the night dancing and avoiding sweaty creepers. It was brilliant! I'm too tired to write about it right now, so here are some photos. Mostly from Pike Place.






















One of my favorite places to go at Pike Place is the comic book store. It is badass! They had a bunch of Doctor Who stuff, which I wanted to buy, but it must've been imported or something because that shiz was expensive. I'll wait 'til I get to London, thanks!

Speaking of London, I called Brunel University today on the way to work. The woman I spoke to was super helpful and sweet, and her accent made me pee myself. No joke. I kept trying to do impressions of her to my friends but I just couldn't do her justice. I hope everybody in England speaks in such dulcet tones... which they will. Because I am OBSESSED with that place. It's bordering on the creepy.

AHHHH you're going to London! Have fun! My boss's best friend is coming over from England, and he's a huge Doctor Who fan too, so we're all gonna nerd out together!

Yey!!! Loved all the Doctor Who stuff that you posted in this, of course. You look adorable and all these shots are great!! glad you had a good time. I'm glad you were able to talk to someone in London so you can get things worked out to go there.

Pike Place is so awesome! These photos really make me want to go back. I remember them having some good used bookstores too.

Looks like so much fun. I've always wanted to go to Seattle & I would always recommend it when my parents were planning vacations, but they always said it was too rainy. ): I'll get there someday!

Also I totally know what you mean about the accents. I totally eavesdropped on every single conversation I heard on the tube when I was over there. I remember this one guy had the most most most perfect accent but he wouldn't get off the damn phone so I could talk to him. hehe

I LOVE Seattle, and Pike Place market is THE BEST. I spy a pastry in these photos...did you get it at the freakin' sweet Hungarian Bakery there? If not, next time you go to Pike Place, you must go there!

Also, I love that you love Doctor Who, because I am obsessed. Like, whoa.

Hey, my dad was there last week too! He brought us back a bunch of beers brewed in Seattle, which rules. I'm gonna double check your photos and make sure he's not in them! Imagine.
