We went to see the small Greek orthodox chapel in Arbour Hill. Who knew that there were sufficient members of the Greek orthodox community here to support a church? Mr. Waffle and I went in, the boys sat outside expressing zero interest and a strong desire to go home and commune further with the x-box. The Princess was at a party.
The Princess and I saw a pebble dash house constructed in the yard of the museum to make us think about house design.
We also got to see the Anglo-Irish bank sign. When it came down, it was saved for the nation. To inspire bitterness in current and future generations, one can only assume.
Mr. Waffle and I finally watched “What Richard Did“. Beautiful cinematography; my sister calls that the kiss of death for a film. People loved this film which came out in 2012. It had the potential to be interesting and plot driven but instead it was boring though beautiful to look at.
Mr. Waffle and I also went to the opening film of the French film festival, “Bande de Filles“. It’s about a group of young, black female friends in the Parisian suburbs. It’s very good on the limited options open to these girls and how hard it is for them to escape from various unhappy destinies but it doesn’t really have a narrative arc and could have ended at a number of different points. One of the actresses was there and it was so strange because in the film she is the leader of the gang, quite intimidating and fills the screen whereas in reality she is tiny and seems very self-effacing though quietly confident.
Yesterday, the Princess and I went to a musical interlude in the new(ish) theatre in the docklands where I had never been before. I had written about this at some length but failed to save it. Here is a summary: It was musical, it was short and it was mildly enjoyable.
