And thanks to W for my new icon, from the sign outside of the Tea Palace. It is pretty grand, isn't it?
And no B-movie tonight - I'm actually trying to make some new friends so I'm having some folks I met about two months ago over for dinner. I'm slow!
For anyone who's interested: the Royal Opera House put their winter shows on sale to the general public yesterday. For the budget conscious, this includes a series of shows called "Firsts," three programs of music and dance shorts for only five pounds a pop. We're going on Wednesday the 28th. We also got 11 pound tickets to see the ballet Tales of Beatrix Potter (we're going to the Jan 8th performance) as well as, er, not quite as cheap tickets to see Pinocchio on December, er, 22nd, figuring nobody will be up to much that night.
Finally, we're going to see a one hour/one act opera called Rita on October 19th at 7 PM for a delightful 12 quid. Again, join us if you'd like - I just couldn't bother getting all organized and jumped on the tickets when I saw they were available last night.
Oh, and ultra finally, some of the London Film Festival events that were sold out have extra allocations going on sale at 9:30 tonight. I am going to try to get tickets to Persepolis, The Barker, and Tonight and Every Night, don't you know it!
