1 london life

last night, i went to this improv sketch comedy standup storytelling thing in limehouse staged in the apartment of these people i do not know. the bathroom was four floors down, behind a pink barred door for which one had to have the key and toilet paper. (there was a sign over the toilet with an elephant admonishing: 'don't forget your loo roll!')

i kid you not, the invite made it sound like we were going to narnia... 'Once safely on the other side, in the corner hidden from unsuspecting passers-by, you will find the following: a jungle, a library, a playground, Giant Pixie, Gnomes, Exotic Birds and a whole host of fantastical, 4 and 5-starred creatures on stage...' when i spoke to my father, he asked, 'and when do you set out for the kingdom of War Drobe?'

there's something so beautifully bohemian about events like this. storytelling things where people your age get up on stage and are awesome. if only because i feel lucky to know they exist. for, were it not for knowing people who know people who know people who forward facebook invites, i too would not have known.

last night, i went to this improv sketch comedy standup storytelling thing. this morning, i woke up to this photo from MK:


and my first thought was, i wonder why she sent this... then, i remembered that is where i live.
