Where did November go?

Once again, the "years shall run [are running] like rabbits," as November has whizzed by so quickly I can almost feel the breeze in my hair. I don't know if the pace of life in London is faster than Seattle, but I feel like I'm seeing time rush by me like nobody's business. It's probably a good thing that everywhere I look I'm seeing more articles talking about how red wine is good for your health. When we get in our new place, I want to find something I really enjoy and just buy a case of it. Unfortunately we're no nearer to getting a place than we were last week, as the only place we liked has rented and the place we saw this morning was TINY and had the main bedroom facing a fairly busy street. I really, really want to move to a place where I can get a decent night's sleep, and not just because I've been hitting the wine stash.

I blew further of my precious time last night writing up my review of Infra and the other pieces we saw at the ballet Wednesday night. It's not as detailed as I would have liked, but I wanted to actually get some sleep last night and not stay up writing until 11:30 like I do sometimes. With so many shows coming up, I have to keep my energy levels high.

The visit with my uncle is going well so far - my only regret is that I haven't been spending nearly as much time visiting with him as I would like. We went to the Dickens museum yesterday, and while it was a bit interesting, it just didn't really resonate with me like it would have if it had been about Proust. I mean, I think Dickens is a pretty crap author, really, but I do really value his work on behalf of the poor (far more than his writing). And the museum was incredibly cold. Still, it was two hours with Frank, and his choice over the Foundling museum, so not such a bad way to burn an afternoon. And Thanksgiving with many members of the old Tripadelic gang was great - made me want to come back home to roost! (Also, roasted garlic gravy recipe - vegetarian but not vegan. Oh well.)

That said, I've got a full day at work ahead of me ... whch I need to somehow fit into the time remaining (the house hunting slowed down the start of my work day). Off I go - with Autumn: Osage County waiting at the end of my day. Yay!

'...Dickens is a pretty crap author...'

I would agree, but it might be worth your reading his journalism which I've read in the past and enjoyed.
