Friday I’ve been drooling at the prospect of a Cate Blanchett/Woody Allen collaboration, so take in an afternoon showing of Blue Jasmine.
Saturday On the Tube home from the theatre, read the adventures of James Adair, in Rowing After the White Whale, about crossing the Indian Ocean in a rowing boat: funny and terrifying.
