YAY London!


I'm definitely going to see "As You Like It" by the Royal Shakespeare Co. I adore Shakespeare. Already bought my ticket, too, for Friday night. Woohoo!

I'm staying in Kensington at a cute little B&B. Didn't realize that March 1 is the start of the summer season when prices go up! Doh! Still, this place has gotten great reviews, looks absolutely adorable, and is relatively inexpensive (~$75 a night).

Also want to hit the V&A Museum, as I come from a looooong line of antique dealers and their specialty is decorative arts. Following this same genetic deformity of loving to look through dusty piles of junk for the rare undiscovered treasures, I hope to spend Saturday morning in Portobello Road/Notting Hill area trolling the flea markets for fab finds. Although, I hear it's a ZOO on the weekends, so maybe I'll try to do this on Friday morning...

AND, Marie-France, recipient of my Sockapaltwoza socks, e-mailed to let me know that the Rowanettes are meeting Thursday night while I'm in town. SO. EXCITED. ABOUT. THIS.

The flea markets are AMAZING. Here's a neat-sounding "will the real Slim Shakespeare Please Stand up" exhibit: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/04/arts/design/04shak.html?ex=1299128400&en=a123e20543abc1e8&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

Sorry. I'm a closet (or not so much)Eminem fan. Can't help it.
