What I did in February 2015

I celebrated Russell Hoban day by leaving a quote from one of his books in a phonebox. Russell Hoban Day - 2015.

I saw The Handsome Suit at the cinema with doseybat and ruthi, a Japanese film about a magical suit.

I went to Carroll/Fletcher gallery and saw art drawn by a computer, a picture drawn by eye tracking, and a video of facial recognition of Miss Universe. I also peered at photos in the Getty Images Gallery, and looked at photos of horses in the Photographers' Gallery.

I walked from Moorgate to Old Street on a tube walk, across the Barbican high walks and past fountains.

I jumped aboard a train that was going to London Waterlove, made a glowing Cheam sign using EL wire, and was given a Pebble watch face with changing poetry from deathboy.

I wandered around parks in Enfield, and saw Big Hero 6 at the cinema.

I celebrated fluffymark's birthday, abigailb moving back to London, and psych0naut visiting London, at the Pembury (the Pembo) one Sunday evening, and drank cucumber soda.

One Saturday, I bounced in an art gallery, while looking at marble dolphins.

I stared up at books floating above me in Leadenhall Market.

I looked at pictures of business men and words, such as "Your life is a perpetual insomnia", in an exhibition of Barbara Kruger's early work.

I saw A Strong Sweet Smell of Incense.

I ate dulce de leche ice-cream from an Argentinian ice-cream parlour, and it was delicious.

I heard some drumming and watched dragons dancing, celebrating Chinese New Year.

I walked to Holborn to see Tim Hunkin's Novelty Automaton. I probed an alien (and it probed me), I went on a mini-break, I saw the eclipse, and my library card was declared to be art!

I saw a woman trying to find a suitcase of money from the film Fargo, using maps she had sewn herself, in the Japanese film, Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter.

I looked at collections of things, such as old postcards, in the Magnificent Obsessions exhibition at the Barbican.

I attended a hack day in Nottingham, ate in a restaurant named Manga Sushi and imagined that eating there would turn me into a manga character, and then went on a ferris wheel.

I ate bibimbap in a Korean restaurant for the first time, and drank cinnamon punch.

I walked underneath the viaduct, and listened to the echo as I shouted "echo".

I booked a trip to Iceland.

On Animal Crossing, I was thrown a surprise party.

I celebrated my birthday at the seaside with my mum. We stared at Ladybird books in the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and watched the waves in Hastings. Foam danced across the beach in the wind, my own foam party.
