I went down to London for the first time ever on the weekend. I went with my cousin Simone and her husband Toby and they showed me how fantastic the city was. Simone had lived in London for many years previously so she knew all of the places to go, and still had the underground map imprinted in her brain (which is good because it’s almost as complicated as the Tokyo rail system). I’m not going to describe what I did exactly, it wasn’t that sort of day. I left my camera at home, we didn’t concentrate on any one place for too long, and instead I just tried to soak up the atmosphere of this great city. Just some passing mentions though; we walked through Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, across to St Paul’s Cathedral, walked across the Millennium Bridge to Tate Modern, the largest modern art gallery in the world, (it had an exhibition called simply “The Weather” which was breathtaking). Didn’t ride on the Eye (but probably will next weekend). Which brings us to the reason we were actually in London; we were going to see a production of When Harry Met Sally at the Royal Haymarket Theatre. It was staring Alyson Hannigan as Sally and Luke Perry’s as Harry and boy can Willow fake an orgasm. We went to a Belgian beer bar and drank Belgian beer (not surprisingly) until we felt hungry enough to head over to this Belgian restaurant called Belgo’s for dinner. It was packed, and we would have needed to wait for an hour in line, so instead we went to Soho. I like Soho. We had some great food, drank some more and came home.
I feel I should write some more here, about the play, the performances, how cute Alyson looked (I’ve always had a bit of a crush on her), but I’m not going to. It was a fantastic day, I had a great time, and I’ll leave it at that.
Harry: “A man can never be friends with a woman he finds attractive, he always wants to have sex with her.”
Sally: “That’s not true! I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved.”
Harry: “No, you don’t”
Sally: “Yes, I do.”
Harry: “No, you don’t”
Sally: “You’re saying I’m having sex with these men without my knowledge?”
Harry: “No, I’m saying they all want to have sex with you.”
Sally: “Well, what if they don’t want to have sex with you?”
Harry: “It doesn’t matter because the sex part is already out there, so the friendship is ultimately doomed, and that is the end of the story.”
Sally: “So a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?”
Harry: “No, you pretty much want to nail them, too”
I haven’t been updating much recently. Sorry about that guys. I’ve been otherwise occupied over the last couple of weeks.
