Wild times

This weekend will be remembered around the world as the weekend my gang from university got back together and formed a crime-fighting team! OK, so not much crime was actually fought, but Whizzkid cracked down on litter.

Yes, today we see the reappearance of Whizzkid and Percy, and the first appearance of Giovanni (whose nickname isn't miles from his real name, really), who is from the same era, and just as awesome except Italian. Whizzkid and Percy were both back in London Town for the Easter holidays, being pampered students who actually get holidays, and Percy nagged Giovanni (who does Science for a living, and so does not get weeks and weeks of his life back either) into joining us all for food and fun times. 

I'm mostly just going to bombard you with pictures now.

Us! In Trafalgar Square, though you can't tell from the picture
We met up yesterday evening and went to Ed's Easy Diner near Leicester square for dinner. It was pretty tasty, and we were all impressed by the milkshakes. There was also an oldfashioned jukebox, which was awesome. 

After dinner, we went to Trocadero for arcade games, where we discovered Elevator Death Parade, which is a shoot-y type game where you play as people taking a lift through a building filled with mooks and mutants. The game has actual sliding doors on the front, which are integral to gameplay. I can't explain it in a way that will fully express how awesome it was, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

Frozen yoghurt is serious business
I persuaded Whizzkid to use his 'omnitool' (smartphone to you and me) to lead us to SNOG for frozen yoghurt. It was excellent, with the yoghurt and the colour-changing ceiling surpassing expectations as usual. 

Then today we went to Regent's Park for a picnic, and then London Zoo!
Power walking. Don't ask

Some of the animals

This is the craziest butterfly I have ever seen. That guy thinks so too

A well-earned break

Toucan! Something something... Guinness

Llamas, alpacas and donkeys
All in all, an excellent weekend!
