London 7 November 2009

I love London. I always find new adventures.

I forgot my umbrella. It didn’t start raining until 10 pm, and I was pretty much done for the day. I’m still hopeful for good weather the rest of the trip so I won’t need to buy one.

I also forgot my camera, so these blog posts will be sans pictures. Or…I could steal pics from the Internet. I’ve been known to do that.

Sadly, I didn’t get as much done today as I planned. I have been unable to get my BB connected to UK’s local mobile phone network. I’m sure I got more frustrated than I should have been, but I am here alone; so it was important to me that I can easily connect with people back home.

The highlight of the day was going to the theatre. I bought the ticket before I left, and because I was a single I got a great seat. I was 5th row – dead center. I saw Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I really enjoyed the play. It is different than the movie.

I’ve had season tickets to the Guthrie for ~ 10 years. I see lots of plays. I’ve only seen one play at the Guthrie that had any nudity – Six Degrees of separation.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s had male and female nudity – and I had a great seat. I think Europeans have a different – more open – attitude toward nudity.

“Life is a moderately good play with a badly written third act” Truman Capote.

Good day, good day! Now I need to try and get to sleep. It is 5 pm at home, but I need to sleep now.
