  • Dessert First

    Sometimes it is a challenge to be me. I have a lot of free time and I am really fabulous. Do you know how hard that makes behaving?!

  • My Stroke of Insight

    Read any good books lately? I have a suggestion for your next bookstore run. It’s definitely not your average vampire, angst-ridden love story, but it was absolutely what I needed at this upside moment of my roller coaster ride.

  • Any Dream Will Do

    Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a spectacular event not to be missed.  Gareth Gates lends a tangible familiarity and lovable quality to his debut as Joseph.  This show is absolutely dream-like in its presentation – the detail in every fantastic element, as well as the timely humor infused throughout, makes for an evening […]

  • On the Waterfront

    For some reason, what’s hot in London theatre at the moment includes two plays set in New York (centering around the dock workers) near the same time.  We had the opportunity to see a fabulous revitalization of A View From the Bridge, and Tuesday night made our way to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for On […]

  • A View From the Bridge

    I met Drew at his office and he grabbed a quick slice of pizza as we headed to the Duke of York’s Theatre.  It seemed quite the appropriate thing to do on our way to a play set in New York.  The theatre itself was the first proper English looking theatre I had yet been […]

    This evening in Leicester Square the critically acclaimed 7 pounds premiered at the Empire Cinema.  Crowds were already camped out when Drew passed through to go to the office today.  Drew attempted on his way home this evening to get a picture of Will Smith on the red carpet, but the lighting was poor. Lucky […]

  • What’s That Smell?

    Term of the Day: Have a jolly good go Make the best effort (usually with light and fun undertones) While I am having a jolly good go at learning how to live the life of a Londoner, I also learn a lot about myself. I shouldn’t expect any less from this blip out of my […]

  • Why Doesn’t Drew Post More Often?

    And the answer is… I am busy. Nothing more glamorous than that unfortunately. Good news is, I am back with an update today so Jen could take the night off. May not be great news to you, but Jen is glad to have a night to herself. Over the next few weeks Jen and I […]

  • Hey, Quiet Out There!

    So yesterday, on my way into the office there was a large chuck of Leicester Square blocked off by barricade and a large crane was behind it hanging a sign on the front of the Empire building. Now I guess I should tell you a bit about Leicester Square so you understand what I am talking […]
