Advantages of my job#5 : lunch in London with a good friend

I may be travelling 5 hours by train there and back, I may be travelling with a co-worker I dislike, I may also be presenting my job...in public...alone...in front of a couple hundred people. I may also not have time to visit Chester beyond my hotel window and the City Hall, which is a shame because it's supposed to be a really nice walled city...but at least I'll have time to have lunch in London in between Waterloo and Euston stations. And at least I'll get a chance to go to Boot's (an english CVS), and buy some cheese (in Chester) and maybe even get a Starbuck's...Just wish I had time to go to Whole Food's. Yeah, I know! Only the English Channel is seperating me from a Whole Food's. Damn!

So in the end, do the food and friend outweigh the fact that I will be spending almost 2 days away from my family, wll not see the light of day for nearly 48 hours (unless I have insomnia and can go for a run tomorrow morning), and will be making a presentation alone since I'm pretty sure my cheeky co-worker will bail on her part and leave me the entire presentation about the job I-never-cared-enough-about-to-learn-the-bla-bla
-and-now-have-to-present?

Let's hope so...and let's hope there's wine at dinner, cause otherwise I'll go into shy repressed mode.
