You Can Look Right Through Me.

Ah, my first theatre production in London - and it all came about so randomly, too.

I've been doing an induction course at work all week, as part of my newbie status. There are a couple of other guys also doing the training who live a few hours north of London, and are staying in the city while they're here. I met D on the first day; we had a nice chat over lunch and she ended up inviting me to see a musical with her later. (She'd just broken up with her ex & wanted to use the tickets he'd bought her. Ha!)

Being the tourist that I am, of course I was up for it. Chicago in London: priceless.



I swear I brushed my hair before I left the apartment, bloody wind. I look horrible. Not to mention PALER than my English friend. What's up with that? It's just not right.

After getting magnificently lost (a talent of mine, I've discovered) trying to walk from D's hotel to Covent Garden, we ended up catching a cab to the theatre, had a glass of wine, and settled in for the show. I love musicals, and thoroughly enjoyed it - I've had 'Mr Cellophane' going around in circles in my head all day long. The female dancers were gorgeous, the male dancers were gorgeous, the singing was fantastic, and I had a ball. Gotta love random friendships and new experiences, that's what life is all about.


Chicago, Cambridge Theatre, Seven Dials, Covent Gardens, London.

Gorgeous photo! I'm glad you had such a good time. Chicago would be great in any city, I think.

Fun!

You look beautiful in that picture, by the way. Being more pale than an Englishwoman is quite an accomplishment, though!

QueenBee said...

You look so pretty in the picture. Seriously. I'm glad you had a good time.

James said...

I'm glad you had a great time!! (And, you don't look too pale!! I think it's a great picture!!)

Erin said...

Fun!!! We went to see Les Miserables when we were in London and it was such a good time!

Love the header!

Leslie said...

I don't think that it's a fair call since it looks like she has on more make-up than you and maybe some bronzer too.
(The new header made me jump. I thought I had the wrong site!)

Nic said...

That sounds like a blast. How fun!

Jamie said...

That sounds like so much fun! I'd love to see Chicago!

Covent Garden is full of rabbit runs & 7 dials is really confusing unless you know where you’re going even seasoned Londoners get lost there! Glade you had a good time & there is nothing wrong with being pale you will look younger for longer!seeya hugya *G*

Vanessa said...

Awesome times and you look great in the picture. Also? Love the new header!

mooiness said...

"Mind the Gap" - excellent!

And your friend is more tanned than you. What's up with that indeed. If you love musicals, London is tops. All those shows that maybe come to Australia once in a year, for a couple of months are playing EVERYDAY over there. That's what blew me away when I was there. :)

Firstly: LOVE the new header! Love love LOVE it!

Secondly: Chicago is such a fantastic play, and I'm so glad you have such a great new friend!

Thirdly: You aren't pale, you're "fair", or "nordic", or something with positive connotations. ;o)

Katie said...

Nice pictures - you look like you're having a great time. I love Mr Cellophane - it's my favourite song of the lot!

Stephanie said...

I like to call it fair. Not pale. I am with Heidi.

Anyway, you have a freaking gorgeous complexion. I think I hate you a little!

Sarah / MMDesigns said...

Ooooh, I LOVED Chicago when I saw it at the theatre! Loved it! Loved the movie, too. Glad you had such a great time (you look fab, dahlink!)

Now I have Mr. Cellophane in my head.....

What an awesome experience! I think you look gorgeous and very very happy. :)

Emilie said...

I live two hours from NYC and I've never been to the city, let alone see a musical, so I am determined to get there soon! I'm glad you had fun, but how could you not?!

Laurel said...

I saw Chicago in London, too. (In 2002!) It was wonderful and I'm glad you've been able to see it too!

Lara said...

Glad you're making the most of being in London town!!
