Status update, Mr. AK!

I realize that I have not been posting here for a while. I can’t really promise that this will change, but I will do my best to throw in a few cumulative updates here and there.

Before I begin let me ask you to do something. I got a letter from Val last week – he’s already in Afghanistan and is doing fine. I can’t imagine how it is for him there so I would like to ask you to drop him a line when you have a chance, I am sure he will appreciate it. Drop me a line and I will give you his new email address.

All right, where do we begin!

We saw the play The Birds a few days ago. Believe it or not, it’s on the same subject as Hitchcocks’s movie The Birds. Both are adaptations of the 1952 novella The Birds by Daphne du Maurier. However the story line is completely different and is basically the tale of a love triangle in the time of crisis, being the avian attacks. Very well done! One of the actresses is Alex’s classmate’s sister! There!

On Alex’s birthday we say Chekhov’s Three Sisters play, performed entirely in Russian with English subtitles. Another very well orchestrated production.

Not all of our time has been as cultural as above. There were plenty of booze fests, including the Ladies Night Out (can’t tell you much about that) and the Lads’ Night Out (the video is here).

Last night we got our eardrums popped by Billy Talent! Excellent show and an excellent birthday present for moi!

It seems that we are going to Galway in mid-November! Very excited about that! Will try to squeeze the last juices of our photo camera and take some decent pictures.

Argh, the problem with cumulative updates is that you cannot remember everything you wanted to write about!!! I guess I will have to blog more often…
