England London Shepherds Bush Empire

11 March 2010

I got stuck in a lift!

Yet another working day (2nd to last), so again not much to report. Still didnt rain in London since the day I got here but remains cold.
Had VIP guests from France today, so lunch was catered and was a 5 course tasting menu, it was very good, rare beef and raw tuna were involved, as well some other things I couldnt actually identify. There was wine to accompany but I dont partake, the labels had no english on them though and wine people seemed excited by it.
In the evening I got off the tube at Earls Court and got in the lift, with only about 5 other people, and the doors shut. And thats all that happened. After about 30 seconds I say, looks like we arent going anywhere.
One guy freaks out and presses every button he can and runs back and forwards in the huge lift and tries to pry open the doors. Another girl starts getting worried at this point, so I take charge. First I explain that we are at the bottom of the lift shaft, so we arent going to plummet and die, the guy questions my logic, how do I know the hole doesnt go down further? I asked him if he was digging a lift shaft, would you keep digging further than you have to? The phone emergency thing did nothing as best I could tell, some people on the lift who didnt speak english were trying to use their phones, of course they dont work in lifts. And then after about 5 minutes the doors open, and the guy runs out and jumps, and says hes going to call the mayor...ok!

In the evening I went for a long walk around shepards bush, the main street there is interesting, theres people pushing carts selling things, theres a phone card cart, fresh corn cart, glow stick cart and there was even a guy with a mobile phone unlocking service.
For dinner I had...a salad, I like salads.

Shepards Bush Empire, famous live venue where many DVD's I stole on the internet were filmed at, including Opeth, Arch Enemy and Steve Vai. I cant remember who was playing tonight but it was a sellout.
