I've been doing quite a bit of walking while I've not had any classes for a little while. I did a bit of a loop yesterday near the FSU for a little while, just walking down some back streets and off the main roads. I did the same thing earlier today while I was looking for a theatre, the Barbican, which is showing a stage version of Tintin. I ended up walking for a couple hours, down a couple of main roads and loosing my bearings before finding the place by mistake. There were some very cool roads that I went down. I was able to secure a ticket for tomorrow night's performance, and took the tube back to my flat, where I got lunch and rested for a little while.
We were supposed to go to a talk last night on Globalization, but when we got there, we found that it had already filled, with a bit of a line for people to get in, so we ended up walking around Fleet Street, looking for a Pub that Fran suggested. After about a forty-five minute walk and a lot of backtracking, we found it, and got something to eat and drink. I wasn't too fond of the beer that I got, but I suppose that it's an aquired taste.

SCI FI Channel announced Jan. 12 that it will air the first season of the BBC's hit SF series Doctor Who, starting in March. The 13 episodes, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, will air as part of SCI FI Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The series, from head writer and executive producer Russell T. Davies, ran originally in the United Kingdom last year and was one of the network's biggest hits ever. An update of the classic Doctor Who show, the series continues in the U.K. with an upcoming second season that will star David Tennant as the Doctor.
"The Doctor's made all sorts of journeys in time and space, but this is one of his most exciting yet!" Davies said in a statement. "I'm a huge fan of the SCI FI Channel, and I'm delighted that Doctor Who is appearing on a channel that supports and enhances the entire genre."
"With its rich history of imaginative storytelling, Doctor Who is a true sci-fi classic," Thomas P. Vitale, SCI FI's senior vice president, programming and original movies, said in a separate statement. "We're excited to add the show to our lineup."
