Crazy Nutcracker

Yes the Nutcracker production tonight was really different - vaguely the same story line as in boy and girl get together in the end but this was set in an orphanage and featured a motorcycle gang, men dressed as can can dancers (and there was a bit of pole dancing in there too) But it was fun. Not something I'd want every time and next time I will want the traditional but it was fun for a change. However the first time I've seen Waltz of the Flowers performed and not had goose bumps. But that will happen again..Had a nice chat with the ladies beside me as they were interested in my ereader.

I had problems finding a place to eat by the Angel tube stop. I'm not saying there weren't places but I didn't want to eat at McDonalds or a kebob place - I probably missed the street they were all on as there was a wagamama advertised in the tube station but never saw it. I saw a chinese veggie buffet place and went there and enjoyed it. By that point I needed something fast but I had a kebob and chips a couple of evenings ago so didn't want that. I still need my pie and chips! And an Indian meal!

Boy all I talk about is food - what can I say....it's a big part of the trip. I don't understand people who don't enjoy food - it is one of the great pleasures in life. Could be why I have a weight problem!
