Burns Night

Burns Night

Outside the White Horse pub, last Friday. I conclude the pub had hired him, as he looked quite fed up, and didn't have a hat out for change.

Too dark to photograph without standing in the road (though plenty of people did, much to the annoyance of passing traffic) so I've gone for an antique sort of effect... guy in the door with the phone sort of spoils it though.

Photographic evidence

That's me on the right. That's a raspberry martini I'm drinking. Do not ask how many that was.

Sweeney Todd

Really, go see this. It's good.

I was lucky enough to be at the Leicester Square premiere last night, though I had already seen it over Christmas, and it's just as good the second time round, except for the part where you know it's about to end, and you don't want it to.

Yes, there were meat pies at the party afterward.

Yes, I met Johnny Depp. And he was charming, and smiled, and I managed not to say anything stupid. (The first time I met Tim Burton, I did say something stupid, but he claims not to remember.)

And I met Alan Rickman, but did not quite dare say "By Grabthor's Hammer". And Timothy Spall is not at all villainous in person, despite being so good at playing them. And the raspberry martinis were perhaps a little too tasty, in that I really shouldn't have had quite so many of them...
