Watching Masterchef, obviously. Let it Go, repeatedly. Black Books. The Trip – so happy to have a second series! I’m Alan Partridge (I know, I’m late to that party). New Game of Thrones – consider me excited.
Listening to Regina, R.E.M., a very Parisian playlist for the French edition of Nom Nom Club, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Bob, Pulp and Shirley Bassey, because we did the best Shirley impression on Saturday morning.
Writing Silly quotes in the new Nom Nom Club guestbook and bonus blog posts.
Eating Lots of big salads and soup, curry, delicious plump cha siu bao from Bon Bon Bakery, and hastily homemade pizzas. As I mentioned, we held the French edition of Nom Nom Club, but I’ll share that in this week’s Food Report. Suffice to say I ate a lot.
Lusting after A Polaroid PoGo. Why don’t they make one for iPhone? Also beautiful views, as apparently that’s all I took photos of this week.
Talking about Having six friends to stay makes for some pretty rambling far reaching conversations. In a nutshell we talked about:
Moving to new cities, differing stages of grown-up relationships, how creepy Port Sunlight looks at night, shouting at the sea, Disney favourites, inventions (patents pending), interventions, boats, a nice deck, all of the French we know, future feasts, hosting skills, the most inappropriate Cards against Humanity plays, what constitutes modern art and how an overhead railway works (we went to the Tate and the Museum of Liverpool).
This video art piece made me feel quite claustrophobic. I found the most recent DLA Piper Series: Constellations a little disappointing. We didn’t make it to the second floor but nothing really grabbed me and made me excited on the first – I’ll have to pop back and see if I find something I love upstairs. I did like Mary Martin’s Inversions, as I’ve always liked Cross which they have at the Walker, and Wolfgang Tillmans’ still life photos were excellent.
Then we headed to the museum where I was very excited to go in the overhead railway carriage and look at all the old biscuit tins!
