Weekend laws of motion

We are talking Newton's Laws here not Kylie's Locomotion, although on closer consideration they are not mutually exclusive. Newton defined gravity, Kylie defied it. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. And we couldn't agree more. The laws of motion, as we define them, start today. So c'mon baby let's give it a chance now. Here we have the first edition of City Slicker's
'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

I think if they want the baby to be a secret let them. Who cares. The media does that is it.

Just heard that Serpentine is letting people sit next to Pavilion on the lawn for £5 to listen to sessions. Bit cheeky to charge anything really, but better than £15 if you are just after a wander.

We have a fan in every room, which given my anti global warming stance makes me a bit of a hypocrit

Serpentine was awesome. Met Ken Loach. Very crowded though. He is older than I expected.

Toby Young's second book not as good as How to Lose Friends but worth a read anyway. Hope we all have fans by now. Carrie

Newton's laws of motion are three physical laws that form the basis for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between the forces acting on a body and its motion due to those forces. They have been expressed in several different ways over nearly three centuries, and can be summarized as follows:
