London has quotes from Love Actually posted at Tube Stations!
On Saturday I spent an hour or two at an information meeting for the volunteering work I will do at Christmas. I might write a bit more about that later this week.
I had another meeting for the December short film but things are not going quite as planned. I think the probability percentage of this short being made is not very high at the moment but let’s see.
Yesterday afternoon I was celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday in a cinema. She had hired one of the smaller screens in the Everyman Cinema in Hampstead for a private viewing and we watched Some Like It Hot, another classic I’d never seen. It was quite funny.
I got an email from one of my old colleagues from Denmark. He is the oldest person working there, he is 68, and not really looking forward to, at some point, retire. We had a special bond, and I was touched when he wrote me after I left for London, to ask me if I was more happy now. He also told me that I was doing the things he had wanted to do in his life, but he now felt too old to go and do them. I was planning to send him an email this month, but he was there before me. I like that he finishes his mails with “Enjoy life”. I really try to.
I am desperately waiting for my cards to arrive so I can send them to you, but I haven’t seen them yet. It takes them hours to sort out the post here in this building so they might still be there, but I apologize up front for any inconvenience and delays this might cause you! (Update:
they have not arrived today either! When Harry Met Sally did though, about a week delayed – it doesn’t look too promising.
20 Giggling Girl postcards have just been brought into my office – hurrah! Will write them and send them out as soon as possible! I am very pleased with them because they look great, very colourful and shiny. I hope you like them too.)
Tonight I hope to watch Enchanted. I haven’t been in the cinema (well sort of but not really) cinema all weekend, and I am having cold-turkey symptoms.
And -when did Patrick Demsey suddenly become all this gorgeous? (Yes I watch Grey’s Anatomy)
How about you, how was your weekend?
