A couple random events occured over the weekend that I thought I would share with everyone…

Something that I’m sure will be on YouTube over the next few days, I saw a man propose to his girlfriend in the middle of Covent Garden in front of a huge crowd. This however, was not your average proposal. From what I gathered (having only caught the end when she said yes and became utterly emotional), he was dressed in a panda costume having rode on the back of a rickshaw with his soon-to-be fiancee. He ripped off his head (of the panda costume obviously) and proposed. I’m not gonna lie, I stopped and watched for a moment; random people in the street started to hug the couple (awkward) and people started cheering and of course, everyone under 21 was filming it on their phone. A nicer moment that slowed the bustle of Covent Garden down for a second.

On Sunday morning, I had to make the massive trek from Wimbledon back to my home in North West London. Walking through Waterloo station, I found that people were walking uncomfortably faster than usual. When I looked up (as everyone knows to keep your head down and avoid eye contact in London), I realised I had just walked into a TV crew filming a scene with Sheridan Smith and David Morrisey; they were filming them walking through the station and just walked alongside everyone else. Not sure what they were filming but if you ever watch Smith/Morrisey feature where they walk through Waterloo station and you see an Asian-looking guy looking utterly confused, that’s me.

Alas, we are at the end of my blog. I’ll leave with something that has 4 parts, but I thought I’d share just one. Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel gets celebrities to read mean tweets that were sent to them; made me laugh…
