Dublin Carol and The Pitmen Painters

We saw both Dublin Carol and The Pitmen Painters today. Both were excellent. I didn’t realize until afterwards, but the young boy in Dublin Carol was also in The Kitchen at the National back in the fall. He certainly has found a niche playing Irish characters here in London! Hearing the Irish colloquialisms was comforting today. I miss them already.

In other news, we spent the morning walking from Primrose through Regent’s Park and down to Baker Street. We went to Primrose to visit God’s Own Junkyard, which is the COOLEST neon art store I have ever seen. We spent quite a while talking with the shopkeeper, who was an adorable little hipster, and commenting on their impressive collection of art and reclaimed objects. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so the walk back was lovely. The birds at the zoo were chirping away! We had lunch again on Embankment and stopped in at the National Theatre. I finally purchased Caitlin Moran’s book How To Be A Woman and inquired about work opportunities. I’m on my way to moving here for the summer! :D
