On the platform at Paddington, we heard two young men discussing Sarah Palin. One asked the other if he'd seen the SNL skits (yeah, he referred to it as SNL, just like Americans do) and he replied, "You can't take the piss out of someone who's already so awful."
And when my ticket didn't open the turnstile (I'd used the wrong one) the attendent glanced at my Obama button, and waved me through.
We went to Putney Arts Theatre to see The Importance of Being Earnest. It was really good (hard to screw up Oscar Wilde, isn't it?) but the guy who played Earnest, who happens to be my husband's co-worker, put in an especially great performance. Kudos to Stuart, who from now on shall be called Earnest.
On the way home we saw people dressed up for Halloween, but not that many. Lots more who were just ordinary drunks.
