Went to the Art Gallery of Ontario this afternoon to see the Guillermo del Toro exhibition – it was amazing. I came here in April & saw Georgia O’Keefe so doing well.
Did Berlin aquarium today.
We did one of those hop on hop off buses today so took in a bit of the Wall, Topography of Terror, checkpoint Charlie, and the Holocaust Memorial.
Went to the Bernie Sanders talk at the Hay Festival today, with my daughter. He was very inspirational & as an added bonus the wonderful Michael Sheen conducted the interview afterwards.
Daughter is studying An Inspector Calls in GCSE so we went up to London today to see it at the Playhouse. Was an interesting production.
Went to see The Mousetrap tonight – shall I tell you who did it?
We went to the Globe today to see Macbeth. I haven’t been here before – it was a solid production, the globe allows for more interplay with the audience which is good fun. We lived it up & had seats & cushions
When my daughter was about 6 we spent a few months playing Pokemon Diamond on her Nintendo DS. It was a really good game, she could progress, didn’t get frustrated, we worked on strategies together, etc. So, when she came round tonight we downloaded Pokemon GO. I won’t go into all the issues and stories that are going around. It was quite fun to see a Pokemon in the real world. But I think it’ll wear off quickly for me. It’s a long complex game and I don’t want to be wandering around doing this. But I did think if there was a whodunnit or crime noir one where you had to find clues around your neighbourhood, that would be quite fun.
Daughter and I went to the Hay Festival today. We saw Jim Baggott talk about science of creation and then Billy Bragg in conversation (he sang a few songs as well). Bragg was very engaging, and afterwards chatted for ages with people queuing to get his book signed ([url=https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/2116638178495432160]I have a signed copy[/url] already of course)
Daughter and I went to see this at the New Theatre tonight. It was fantastic, really funny. Not ‘oh look aren’t we smart laughing knowingly at Shakespeare” funny, but genuinely laugh out loud funny. Daughter loved it. I wonder what current comedy will still be as good 400 years hence?
