05 Nov 2006: Dublin

We went to watch Les Misérables. I thought it was ok-ay, but the audience disapproved of my wildly underwhelmed behaviour, jumping out of their seats and shouting bravo and clapping as soon as each note finished. Whatever, dude, whatver.

Strange as it may seem, the cafe inside the London City Airport is (a) not that crowded, (b) offers decent coffee and (c) has an amazing view of the dock with planes taking off and landing. Why the heck don't I go sit down and write in there on the weekends?

Remember, remember the 5th of November. Except that the big fireworks over the dock were held yesterday and, after watching an impressive display from our balcony (woo-hoo to us, aren't we showing off) I'm all fireworked out now.
