Aforehand (to borrow the vernacular of the show, pure Hollywood "corn pone"), we had dinner at Bangalore Express, a new joint that opened across the street from Waterloo in the space formerly occupied by Thai Silk (103 Waterloo Road, website appears to be not built yet). It's got all of the shoulder to shoulder shared tables I hate, but also an adorable "bunk bed" dining section where you have to walk up a ladder to get to the tables. (I'm not sure how they serve people up there, but when J's foot heals, we'll find out.) Their menu was $3 for sides, $4 for small mains, and $8 for large mains (okay it's supposed to be pound signs but I don't have that on this computer). We got a "regular" duck and potato dosa for $4 and a "large" combo plate (spicy coconut curry tandoori chicken on rice with a small side of sweet potato salad) for $8, and walked out of the door _with leftovers_ for $12. (We also didn't buy drinks as we were feeling cheap.)
Er, in theater news, Summer Strallen of Drowsy Chaperone is now going to be Maria in the West End Sound of Music. I don't really want to see that show, but I adore her so maybe I will. Also, three of the guys up for the local theatrical awards (Oliviers) are ones I saw in the roles they are nominated for this years - pretty cool!
Er, also, very tired, don't have a lot of stamina these days and sadly I'm due to go into work tomorrow. And the tension backache I tend to have has returned after a two month break. As a sign of recovery, it's one I could have happily missed.
