Welcome, guests!

Getaways: Curry, Wedding, Tubes, Science, Cabaret

Abbi’s Curry Night
We haven’t had a proper dinner party in so long, but thanks to Abbi’s hosting this was a pleasing return to form! Nothing got set on fire, so we’re obviously a little rusty, but made up for this with curries and drinks and joy. Plus the now obligatory cheese board, an innovation which should be credited entirely to Paul.

Bill and Katie’s Wedding
Cambridge is such a perfect city for a wedding Many congrats to @billt and @ktsays, whose wedding included a private showing at the Arts Picturehouse, a delicious Thai dinner and the most amazing performance of a poem in tribute to Bill. (Basically, I want someone to write and perform a poem in tribute to my life, and if getting married is what it takes then sign me up.)

London Transport Museum
…and perhaps more importantly, the London Transport Museum’s shop, for as a result my wall is now bedecked with this awesome poster. I now think Underground to Anywhere: Quickest Way, Cheapest Fare whenever I get the Tube.

Flat Day Out

Or, in other words, how Cat and I took a day of annual leave in order to follow a carefully-planned itinerary of Greasy Spoon -> Science Museum -> Gordon’s Wine Bar -> Hot Chocolate -> Pub -> Spaced. Perfect. A personal highlight: convincing two young boys at the Science Museum to vote in favour of weaponised weather technology “because a tornado gun would be so cool”.

Cabaret
And finally… courtesy of Groupon, on Wednesday night I was at the West End premiere of Cabaret (starring Will Young and Michelle Ryan, as it’s obligatory to say). Amazing show, and a great night all round!
