For reasons I’ve not yet been able to fathom I became a member of the Tate last Saturday.
Therefore, tonight I will be hanging around the Tate Modern Members’ bar balcony watching the sun set over London (ah, that’s why I joined!).
After this evening of high culture I will then be visiting a friend’s to watch the final of Big Brother.
I am concerned my brain may not be able to handle the resulting “pressure drop” in culture.
Tonight Formula One comes to London.
I’m gonna wander along, although I expect it will be insanely busy so all I’ll see is the backs of people’s heads.
Got me camera anyway, might get a good photo for Street Life.
Just wandered over to check it out. It’s starting to “busy up”.
Am now even less convinced I’ll see anything.
Yesterday I walked home from work.
It just seemed less hassle than waiting for bus that wasn’t packed.
I was very surprised to find it only took me 3 minutes more to walk than my normal bus journey home.
I should walk more often.
The free music season on the South Bank is starting.
On the way home over Waterloo bridge I saw the stage being set up outside the National Theatre.
A humourous look at Human Billboards (people who stand in the street holding up large adverts), mostly in London.
From the excellent Urban 75.
Some workman chappie is in our office today.
He was just moaning to someone that thanks to the bleedin’ congestion charge he can no longer drive to work so now he has to stand on the tube bashing people’s legs with his bag.
Kinda warms the heart when you think about it.
I’m moving to a new office.
I went to see it today.
It’s very high up, with a great view over London, if I get a window seat that is.
It also means I can catch the bus to work instead of the tube.
Time to buy me a portable DAB radio then.
Then I can be the idiot sat on the bus laughing at Danny Baker on the way to work.
