Noodley doodley dum dum dum

Was a warm old weekend here (and, so far, it's an even warmer week). To celebrate this decidedly un-Irish event, we went along to a decidedly Irish one-- the tenth anniversary performance of Riverdance, at the Gaiety Theatre. Have to say it wasn't entirely my cup of tea... perhaps because dancing has never really been my thing anyway, and perhaps because the fusion of traditional and electrified Celtic music that was so contemporary then (the likes of Capercaillie and Wolfstone are among the better proponents-- I'm sure there are Irish equivalents too) now sounds a bit dated to my ears. Julie certainly enjoyed it, though.

Prior to that we dined at Wagamama's, the Japanese noodle bar across the road from the theatre. I visited the one in London many moons ago (prior to a Del Amitri gig if memory serves)... the food was as good and reasonably-priced as I remembered, although I'd forgotten they wrote your order on the placemats!
