From a stop at the cupcake confectionary (like that?) Karen got to choose where she wanted to go next. She decided on a movie as it was really warm out and doing something inside was appealing. We checked movie times and then hopped on the streetcar toward the Fox. It’s a fairly newish theater that shows primarily independent films. We’d never been there before. Used an ATM like ticket machine. Kinda cool. We saw the movie UP. I loved it. I think Karen liked it too, she just didn’t cry as much, or at all, as I did. What can I say… emotional.
Our first day in London, our first afternoon, we got to go to Shakespeare’s Globe (not the original of course as there have been fires and rebuilding) to see Romeo and Juliet. What a fantastic thing that was. Here we were in the most famous theater in the world watching one of the most, if not the most, famous play in the world. Couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to London really. We were extremely tired, but that didn’t seem to matter. It was so very cool. The play itself was also really good. I’d never seen Romeo and Juliet live I don’t think. Shakespeare in Shakespeare’s house was awesome.
I know, I know, I’m early with this post for Photo Hunt Saturday. But here’s the deal… I’m home today from work, not feeling all that well, and I have nothing better to do. Hence the post today.
About my post for this week’s theme, old fashioned… We went to San Jose last June and while there we ventured out to the Stanford in nearby Palo Alto. This place is fantastic. Admission is cheap, popcorn, snacks and soda are priced from the 50’s or so, and you get a double feature, complete with live organist popping up out of the floor during intermission. It’s old fashioned all the way around, and really incredible.If you want to join the hunt and the fun, check out the specifics at photo hunt.
