(Planet Me)

Yesterday, for the first time, we went to the o2 Arena. Formerly it was the Millenium Dome, which I went to visit in mid 2000 on a day trip with a friend of mine. I was kind of hoping my friend might fall for me that day, but she didn't. Everything works out in the end.

Walkinga round the cavernous arena, I remember the last time I was there, where in the body exhibition the gigantic human body had pubic lice, and the strange sculpture set out in the middle of the river.

It's now a massive 23,000 seater arena, which reminds me of Earls Court, but, I suppose, a bit better. I had fears that getting out of there would be an absolute nightmare - which it almost was. The typical people jam I was expecting, with an enormous crush as 20,000 people tried to get out, was actually remarkably easy.

We walked round the circumference of the arena and I remembred where everything used to be. It sure was weird having gone from what it once was to what it now is, a massive entertainment complex.


Today we took Xander to see The Simpsons Movie, which he enjoyed. Ate Pizza. Had a few giggles.


This is The Scissor Sisters last night - looks like the mothership has landed.
