Whose blog is this anyway?!

I just discovered a song by a 16th century composer named Thomas Tallis on my computer. Can't remember where it came from, but it is the most beautiful thing I've heard all day.

I went and saw "The Prestige" yesterday, and oh my Lord, it is a good 'un. RUN to the theatre, do not walk, do not pass go, IT IS AMAZING. I haven't seen such a solidly good movie since, uh...well, not for a LONG time. I can't believe how good it was. It's been 24 hours and I'm still raving about it.

The show closed last night, so I'm suffering from post-show depression. Mrrr.

The good news is I'm making curry for dinner.

A decision has been made regarding: The Future. Haven't quite picked the road yet, but I've got the destination...and yes, it involves me coming home. I'm going to see how I feel after I come home for Christmas, whether that means I'll be back in the US in February or September, but I'm going to be back on home soil sooner rather than later.

Feels good.

God, this is gorgeous music.

I also got a new tea set. I have a teapot (green, for creativity) but the other day I saw a gorgeous tea set in a chartiy shop for £1.50: a teapot, three cups with saucers, cream pitcher and sugar bowl. For some reason it didn't come home with me right then, but I gushed about it to Alison so effusively that when I came home the next day it was sitting on the counter waiting for me. Now I just need to get some silver spoons and we can have a tea party, even if the china is so thin I'm going to have to make uptight friends because I'm afraid the people I know will break them.

And the shops are putting out the Christmas things already. When is Thanksgiving? I'm cooking again this year (if you want to come, let me know), but I've got to get over to St. Martin's to pick up some Christmas cards and also a booklet of their Christmas music schedule. I wonder if I'll be able to hear the Britten again this year, I like that music.

It doesn't mean I'm going to be happy about leaving. I'm trying not to think about all the things I will miss... I won't think of that right now.

Damnit. It's too dark to see the keyboard.

I was going to get a nice tea set if I came to visit you. Some of the girls I was with from Point bought tea sets for like $100 but I figure it would be a worthwhile investment and a reminder of my time in London. However I don't need one now that I"m going to Romania. I always thought I'd do like my mom when she buys a set of dishes and get like 8 tea servings and put 4 away somewhere in case the first 4 break.

I also know that if you want your fine china to last longer you pour the milk in first so the hot water doesn't shock the cup and break it.
...on the list of random stuff I know.

I can't wait for you to come home again!

I know you'll do what is best, but if Athens-London is quite a distance, what about Athens-USA? On the other hand, it could be a good way of making me visit America.
