Had an excellent time with mirien staying over, we went to see Avatar which totally ROCKED and had a freezing cold BBQ with fireworks!

Today I watched the revamped version of Advent Children and totally revitalised my FFVII addiction, dammit! Maybe some fics might come of it, who knows - I have several on the go still that ought to be finished.

Work tomorrow, but at least it is bearable.

Had a most awesome evening in London and saw Verdi's Rigoletto (this one: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009/sep/22/rigoletto-review) today. It was just brilliant, my favourite opera...probably, and SUCH a good production! Set in 1950's America, mafia-style, the sets were stunning and all rather Edward hopper-ish.

I am on a Walt Whitman kick as well at the moment...

A Noiseless Patient Spider

A noiseless, patient spider,
I mark'd, where, on a little promontory, it stood, isolated;
Mark'd how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,
It launch'd forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;
Ever unreeling them--ever tirelessly speeding them.

And you, O my Soul, where you stand,
Surrounded, surrounded, in measureless oceans of space,
Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing,--seeking the spheres, to connect them;
Till the bridge you will need, be form'd--till the ductile anchor hold;
Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch somewhere, O my Soul.

Walt Whitman 1860

It went so well with my latest crop of photos!
