It’s still warm here, though it cools of at night to make you glad you brought a jacket if your sitting in the Elizabethan, the open-air theatre.

In spite of the decline of the independent bookstore and the collapse of dead tree publishing and the end of civilization that Dancing With the Stars clearly foretells, several new used book shops have opened since last we were here. I hit five yesterday. So far, I have not spent more than i should in them, but that can always change.
Saw Love’s Labour’s Lost last night. It worked very well thematically, and the acting was good, but for some reason I found it irritating that they set the thing in about 1962. The mannerisms of the ladies of the French court were annoying. Probably because girls like that are the ones who used to turn me down for dates right around then.
Anyway, a good beginning to the trip
