me, in London

I arrived last night, after a flight that was delayed several times but never got unpleasant because there were lots of empty seats and lots of room to stretch out.

I’m battling a terrible sore throat at the moment, which has been hanging on since the weekend. No other symptoms, though, so no need to panic yet that I’m dying of some strange alien virus. I’m going to be very cross, however, that if the hurts-so-much-to-swallow part of it doesn’t go away soon. I had a weird brief reprieve from the pain last night, long enough to get some fish and chips, but it was back, though not quite as intensely, today. I couldn’t even finish my wine at lunch, so you know it must be bad.
Still looking at a meetup for early next week in Ealing. There’s some wonderful pubs here, and I’ve already narrowed it down to a couple options.

As I suspected, Facebook won’t play nice with my U.K. mobile phone — it has an exclusive arrangement with another carrier, which seems like a bizarre way to limit your customers. But Twitter is working fine, so you can follow my trip there.

Of to the theatre to tonight, to see the RSC’s new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (which features Joe Dixon, who just about stole Love’s Labour’s Lost from David Tennant). I’ll report on that asap.

Oh, and if there’s anyone out there who reads the site and works at Ealing Studios, and would be willing to give a visiting film critic from New York a tour of the studios, lemme know…
