I was catching up with my friend vAsh via Facebook chat yesterday who is currently based in Singapore. I casually asked how far he is from the Esplanade Theatre where the Singapore Repertory Theatre is in residence and where The Bridge Project is headed next from March 26-31. He said he lives about 20 minutes away, and goes there every now and then when he fancies a walk. In a calm fashion and without any hidden agenda or selfish motives, I mentioned that Simon Russell Beale will be performing in that theatre in a couple of weeks. All I said without going into a lot of detail was that SRB is my sweetie. And vAsh decides and does this:
The universe is bringing us together! It’s meant to be! First it’s Abigail in New York, now it’s vAsh in Singapore!
Bebe vAsh, thank you for doing this and I am expecting a brilliant review!
Oh I just love my friends!
My good friend Richard Brunton, owner of Filmstalker, whose excellent blog is the only film blog I visit, will be at the BAFTAs tonight to cover the event live.
So follow the BAFTAs on telly and then join us for the live blogging at Filmstalker.
Fearless forecast: Big winners for tonight will be Slumdog Millionaire and Kate Winslet.
How quickly one forgets people when one moves on.
I get a lot of quizzical looks when I give out my email address to people. Feignedmischief what? You’re full of mischief alright, I remember a friend saying then trying to tie it with the feigned bit. Is it just a play with words, or is there more to it?
Now I don’t want to go into so much detail because that’s the fun of not giving too much away. That’s why I really found it amusing that fellow filmstalker and friend Ramchandra, who is polishing up on his vocabulary decided to feature the word feign in his own blog and inadvertently discussing feignedmischief in his article: http://www.ramchandra.me.uk/blog/archives/2008/03/feign.php#comments
What about you, what did you make of feigned mischief?
Bank holidays. If youre from then UK then you know that it is synonymous with having a long weekend, short break, or for some, just simply a time off. I very rarely spend my bank holidays travelling but for the 2nd May bank holiday weekend which fell on the last Monday, some friends of mine have decided to go and explore the Lake District.
It was my cousin’s wife who organised the trip from booking our accomodations and the itinerary for the entire 3 days. Now I have been informed that there will be a lot of walking, climbing and trekking involved and I came out in the open and said that I am only going to be walking on a flat surface thank you but surprised even myself.
If you’re a member of Facebook and youre one of my friends, then you will be able to see some of our wonderful photos, but here’s some to see now to whet your appetite and just maybe it will make you want to explore the beautiful Lake District as well.
