They are on their way …
See that picture?
Well I shed a tear when I left them in the red mailbox on Broadway (London, SW1) this morning because they were good company, but hearing the amount of giggles that came out of the mailbox I know they look forward to travel to you.
See those stamps? When I went to the post office on Portobello Road and asked for other stamps than the standard Liz ones, he said they were sold out. I said – do you know what they are for? He said no. I showed him the cards. He said – ah – we do have some left. And I said – I knew you would.
So – nice stamps for you.
I don’t know how long it will take them but let me know when they have arrived safely. They are travelling all over the world, which brings me to the next card that arrived in my mailbox yesterday:
I love it, it’s wonderful, and very symbolic.
Still struggling with the December short, which has turned into a bit of a behind the scenes drama which is worth making a short film about in itself. I don’t have very high hopes that it is going to work out.
I am looking for a bicycle or the like for the 24/25th of December. London completely (completely!) shuts down its public transport on the 25th of December and I am supposed to get to my centre to work the afternoon shift! I don’t mind walking, just not at 11pm in the night after a long day of work.
The Vertical Hour comes to London, Bill is not in it, but the person who will play Bill’s part was in The Girl In The Cafe film, which is a nice coincidence. His name is Anton Lesser, and he played George (one of Lawrence’s colleagues) in the film. However, I have decided not to go and see it and in that way leave my memories of how the play is supposed to be – intact.
State of Play – the boooh-vie – has, after Brad Pitt stepped out, now also lost Edward Norton. They replaced him with Ben Affleck. Who? Exactly. Disaster – and that’s what you get when you mess about and don’t cast the excellent British cast of the TV series for this to begin with.
I bought a ticket for the Oxfam charity screening of Varakai (Cirque du Soleil) for Friday the 25th January 2008 at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Looking forward to it, and it feels even better knowing that a big share of the money goes to Oxfam.
