Christine - I can't escape

Culture.

I ran out of work again today due to everyone being on leave.  Noor is due back off sick leave next week and I guarantee that'll just put us in an even worse position in terms of workload.

Subsequently, I left at 4.45, and since getting home I've put out the rubbish and half of the recycling, and done the washing up from last night.  We look like alcoholics because we missed the collection a fortnight ago.

Anyway, here is another Public Service Announcement, to any interested parties...

Symphony Hall is showing The Phantom of the Opera (silent movie) with live organ accompaniment on 15 June 2007 (a Friday).  The first showing of this a few years ago was frelling awesome ("to speak in the vernacular of the peasantry"*) so I would highly recommend people going to see it.  So this is something of an open invitation for those who want to come.  As with Pirates 3 I don't want the hassle of trying to organise people, so if you're coming, come, and we'll go for drinks afterwards.  I'll probably be hanging around in the foyer or something. Or, at the very least, if you're coming and your tickets are booked, then you can let me know...

Tickets range from £5.00 to £18.50 with a very reasonable student / young person discount (which I still just about qualify for)...  There is more information here if people are interested.  The silent movie is one of my favourite film versions of Phantom and quite possibly one of the definitive visions.  Plus, you get to see Lon Chaney mincing. :D
