London is excellent. Saw Wicked tonight. Flight was uneventful, and we flew over central London as we landed... great view of the London Eye, etc. The weather has been stunning.

Manzi's, my old favorite hotel, is just closed. Nothing new has opened there. The new place is somewhat nicer, though pricier. There's wifi, but it's tres spendy. Oh well... I'm paying it for now.

Airplane food is the last bastion of reasonable portion sizes. Flew business class (thanks Asya!), so the food was actually edible.

I have a cell phone here. It's amusing, but I can't figure out how in the hell anyone manages to send text messages on a numeric keypad. I miss my Treo keyboard.

Now, must keel over and sleep. Tomorrow, more shows! Shopping for scotch, probably. And who knows what else.

Happy Birthday, Happy London.

Bummer about Manzi's closing. As you posted your pre-trip info, I had wondered if she called to tell you she took the liberty of pre-booking your usual room.

Now that Whole Paycheck is carrying cheeses from Neils Yard, I no longer have to beg you to find space to pack me a small chunk of aged cheddar. Oh, those were the days. :-)

I've done it, but found it painful. I've been amazed by people who can touch-type messages on those.

Happy Birthday.
