I hope everyone has been spending lots of time with loved ones and enjoying the holidays 🙂 My first Christmas in England was a success. I skyped with my mom and we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas, because…duh. I managed to synch my showing up with hers relatively well — in the end, it sounded like we were watching in stereooo-ooo-ooo-oooohh. We laughed and sang and generally had a blast.
Later, I went to the local chapel with a flatmate and her friend to hear the choir sing. They were fantastic. I’ve never heard the song “Seinte Mari, Moder Milde” before; now it’s one of my favorite things I have ever heard. After that, we headed back to the flat and my flatmate prepared dinner. We ate well and have plenty of leftovers.
It was a nice day.
Now, we’re onto New Year’s Eve! Since it closes in January, I bought a ticket to see Urinetown on December 31st. Caity — of the blog Where the Heart Is — wrote a post about the show that intrigued me, and subsequent research has turned up good reviews. The recurring theme in them is that Urinetown completely takes you by surprise with how good it is, so I’m excited to check it out! I missed out on tickets to the fireworks in London (accidentally on purpose b/c I’m not into crowds), and am still trying to think of where to head after the show for the countdown to the new year. Any ideas?
What are your NYE plans?
