Sometimes you just feel like eating a muffin
; sometimes you just feel like eating a muffin all day long
and if your name is Astrid NOTHING -BUT REALLY NOTHING- STOPS YOU FROM DOING SO!
So last Sunday started off with a Lemon Poppy Seed-muffin
, continued with a Classic Blueberry-muffin
, and finished off with a MOUTHWATERING Peanut Butter-Banana Muffin
The end? No! It is just the beginning of a MUFFIN-ERA
Each of these muffins were purchased without a single Pence discount
in Notting Hill. You might have heard about this place or seen it in the movies, but Astrid really goes there to eat muffins and to make new friends: "HI MIGHTY MAX! HI LUCKY LUKE!"
Astrid ran into these fellows when ordering a drink when she really needed to go to the loo:
Astrid (not thirsty at all) to waitress: "I'd like a carrot-wheatgrass -apple-orange-celery juice, please, but only if you have a loo?"
I say there is lots of conversation material in that one phrase!
More friends/enemies were made later that day when Astrid boarded the tube
Some Australians who were a bit tipsy
were convinced that Astrid with her surfer-look
was Australian, since they were maybe really a bit too merry, Astrid decided that her momma would be really proud if she just ignored these people.
So she boarded the tube, found a seat on the other end from where the Aussies were sitting, and then ... then they started singing all these Australian national songs
and demanded that the surfer-girl would tune in while pointing at Astrid on the other side of the tube.
Everyone looked at Astrid, hoping she would show off
her singing skills!?!?! Well, bad luck
, Astrid doesn't have these skills, and besides, she would need a sheet with the melody and the lyrics of these songs!
When Astrid did not tune in, the Australians started dancing
in front of her. Boy, they sure had some funny dance moves, so Astrid could no longer put up with her serious-face and had to go for the tears-streaming-down-her-face-look
! Then she reached her destination and hopped off like any muffin-queen
