First, no B-Movie for me, even though I got a snazzy new dress to wear to it. Instead, I'm going to see The 39 Steps
has some great "Theater for a Tenner" deals, and this is one of them! I guess they don't sell them at this price the day of of the day before (or on Saturdays), but it's apparently not too hard to get the tickets four or five days in advance. I'll probably use this method to get tickets for the Alan Cumming show (Bent
), too. (And I wonder if Starlight Express
will come up at half price? I have GOT to see that silly show the three weeks it is in town.)
Second, I was thinking about the fatal sneeze on the tube yesterday, and it got me to wondering about bird flu. In a city like this, where people are packed together all the time, it would really just pass around like mad. I could imagine it completely crippling the city and devastating the population. And yet I haven't seen any signs of there being flu shots to get here. Maybe it takes place later in the year? Hmmm.
