Mi Perdonato, gentle masters mine*
Tuesday, yesterday (is it only WEDNESDAY? this week feels like a month), I had precisely 50 minutes between getting home from work and leaving again to go to rehearsal. 50 minutes in which to get changed, get some food, any food, make sure all my needed bits and pieces were in my rehearsal-tote, spend quality time with my husband, post archive pictures to this darling little site, and run my lines one last time.
I managed precisely 50% of those things.
And then forgot lines at rehearsal.
And then rehearsal ran late so at 11pm I raced home and managed to wash my face and brush my teeth before collapsing into bed.
I think this may be the longest time (not counting vacation in Hawaii) that I have gone without washing my hair**.
SO there were no photos yesterday. You may have noticed (delusions of grandeur). YET! as they are, here they are, come to greet you***
London, September 22nd 2007
St Bartholomew House, near Fleet Street
St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street
Standing 69 meters high, it is the 2nd tallest of all Wren’s churches, with only St Paul’s itself having a higher pinnacle.
Bizarre symbol!! On a church!! Exciting!! Or not. Conspiracies!! Or not.
The tiered spire is said to have been the inspiration for the design of modern tiered wedding cakes.
A Banksy! seen in the wild!!
** Don’t panic. It’s only been 3 days. It looks surprisingly cute.
*** Another Shrew reference. This one is actually one of my lines. I cannot remember if it is greet or meet …… Oh bollocks. It’s meet. Time to go over lines again.
