I think it's become a bit of a fashionista thang here in London to have your picture taken in front of Somerset House. I always see pictures on the internets of people posing here, and I think maybe they host one of the fashion weeks or something? So after Victor and I had been to an exhibition there, I thought "why not?" and asked him to snap some phone pictures of me. And they have been held hostage inside my phone ever since. For weeks. Poor, poor pictures.
Anyway, I had a really cool little paid gig a couple of weeks ago - teaching Shakespeare workshops at my old university back in Norway. Now get this - I was teaching teachers. And teachers make the WORST students; it's hilarious. They're used to being the ones in charge, so they'll give you no respect, and they'll talk during your lesson, too! My mother taught me a great trick that I used on day two though - I'd just stop talking mid-sentence and then wait until the people talking over me realised that everybody else was waiting for them to shut up. That worked like a charm!
I taught everyone an Elizabethan drinking song, and made them sing it in the round AND with linked arms, swaying from side to side, hehe. It's this really cute song about how they thought your nose didn't get red from drinking too much alcohol, oh no - it was all the spice they put in the beer that made your nose go red! (Elizabethan science, man...) "Cinnamon and ginger, nutmeg and cloves, and that gave thee thy jolly red nose."
