This evening I went to my first experience of Poezijaplus because they were discussing The DaVinci Code and I am astounded by the media frenzy that this book received. I haven't actually read it yet, nor have I seen the film, but I will do both, without getting my sentiments hurt, because I have greater faith in myself and my upbringing than to allow myself to be influenced by a book. Especially a book that is not actually saying anything new, because we've heard the marriage allegations before The DaVinci Code expressed them.
But, back to Poezijaplus; I really enjoyed it. I didn't quite know what to expect, but it was excellent. The atmosphere inside the Manoel Theatre Courtyard was lovely and the speakers were really interesting, especially Trevor Zahra and a lecturer whose name I didn't catch. I like listening to interesting people speak.
I also met Robert there whom I hadn't seen in quite a while.
And as always when in Valletta I kept to my Jubilee + book tradition just before the event began. And before that I went round the shops a bit, and was really really disciplined. I only bought myself a cool pair of sunglasses from Accessorize, so they were cheap. But I saw the greatest underwear and pj's at La Senza and I really really want them. So now I'm waiting to get paid :)
