A good read

Monday, July 31st, 2006

Probably my last blog before the Europe adventure begins but I wanted to tell everyone about this brill book I’ve found… The Curious Incident of the WMD in Iraq by Rohan Candappa. It’s very funny and well worth reading. Candappa also wrote the The Little Book of Stress, which is an absolute must for every […]

Not stolen only borrowed

Monday, July 31st, 2006

A busy weekend spent hanging out with Karamoon, freshly off the plane from NY city. He pointed out that my blog titles were very similar to his, so I feel it is only fair to point you in the direction of his blog so you can see firsthand the inspiration behind my posts! Karamoon’s blog […]

Went to watch an educational and harrowing film yesterday: The Wind the Shakes the Barley. It is another Ken Loach film and as good as Land and Freedom so I would recommend watching it if you get a chance. It’s all about Ireland in the 1920s so only watch it if you need convincing that […]

Storm in a teacup

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

We’ve just had the most amazing storm here – torrential rain, brilliant lightening and rolling thunder. I cycled manically home from the bookclub getting absolutly soaked and loving every minute of it! It’s such a relief to be cool after the weeks of oppressive heat. It’s a good thing I live in England and not […]

Basking in glorious sunshine

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

A lazy but glorious day, full of sunshine, fruit, films and books! Hung out with Ella and drank lots of lovely vegan fruit milkshakes! Mumm! Will joined us and we ventured down to the Nelson pub to see Singing the Postman performed by Crude Apache, normally I love free theatre but maybe I wasn’t really […]

Unmanic monday

Monday, July 24th, 2006

Today was a gentle introduction back into life in Norwich. I spent the morning cycling to campus and sitting under a tree with Rumi discussing life, the universe and everything. Watched a fairly bad film called The Cinder Path, I wouldn’t advise the experience. Trying not to think about the situation in Lebanon. If you […]

The Joys of London

Sunday, July 23rd, 2006

I had a wonderful weekend in London. Bumped into Richard L on the way down and went to see his basket exhibition at City Lit. Richard incorporated plastic bags into his weaving with interesting results. Hopefully he’ll be very famous soon and then you’ll see what I mean. Keyvan and I wandered around London for […]

Feeling the heat

Friday, July 21st, 2006

Have been very busy the last couple of days and this heat is killing me! I’m just off to London to hang out with my good friend Keyvan, and hopefully to go to big stop the war demo. I wish they would just hurry up and implement a culture of peace already. I should think […]

Rant about the trains

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

Have spent far too long on trains over the last couple of days. The trains really are very bad, they are late, somewhat disorganised, dirty, unpleasant and very expensive. I guess the owners are making some money but that is really very little consolation to the masses of people who just want an efficient, inexpensive […]

Yet another sunny day – it’s all a bit good to be true. Wandered into town to watch ‘Cliffhanger’ a thrilling and ‘real life silent movie’ performed by the Bash Street Theatre Company. They were amazingly good. Check out their website for a touring schedule; they are well worth going to see if you get […]
