Weekend laws of motion
'Week's action, Weekend reaction'.
And in no particular order, other than importance and interest:
1) Whilst sleeping atop the covers, face down, limbs positioned like a snow angel every night had its novelty, it has long since worn off. React to the heat by finally getting a fan. Insomnia does not a martyr make. The American Fan Company (www.americanfan.co.uk) 0870 803 4895 does retro chic designs. And they are portable so even if you get kicked from bed to sofa, you can stay cool, £125.
2) But if you really have given up on sleep, react by staying up all night at the Serpentine Gallery Marathon, Hyde Park. Not a rave, rather all-night architecture talks. Calling all urbanites, leave Wallpaper magazine behind and head to the 24-hour thinking man's chin-wag. You will be in good company, Damien Hirst and Ken Loach are set to attend. www.serpentinegallery.org. Fri 6PM-Sat 6PM. £15 entry.
3) The Bush-Blair Love Affair. Will it ever end? React by reading Toby Young's newest memoir The Sound of No Hands Clapping Price £7.91 from (www.amazon.co.uk). Having failed as a Brit in Manhattan, Toby heads to Los Angeles. When the truth of US-UK relations is too much to bear, we turn to fictional ones.
4) Fed up with the endless mystery surrounding Tom Cruise's baby? React by heading to Marc Salem's ESP show On Second Thoughts at the Tricycle Theatre, Kilburn. Salem is an American mind-reader who will awestruck even the most cynical. He can tell you where you last went on holiday, and what number your bank account balance begins with. Surely he must know if Suri exists. Until 5th August. Tickets £11-£18. www.tricycle.co.uk
