First off, we have sightings of Jake yesterday at what is becoming a favourite, Angelica Kitchen. Jake's enthusiasm for this vegan watering hole is so great that he was seen cycling to it in the rain. He was joined by his mum (and a bevy of women checking their hair in the window).
Later in the day Jake put on his glad rags and headed out to join the biggest bash in the city last night - Sting's 60th birthday party at NYC's Beacon Theatre, a night that raised £2.5 million. Jake was one of many there, including Robert Downey Jr (who took to the stage to sing to the birthday boy), Bruce Springsteen and pretty much everyone else who's ever picked up a mic. Nothing like Sting turning 60 to make me feel old. I remember seeing him and Police on stage so many years ago... Hopefully, some pictures may turn up of Jake. With apologies for linking to the Daily Fail, there are pictures of many of the other guests there.
I have a very pleasant image to put into your heads. Jake has also been spotted at a steam baths... Keep that thought...
Having an encounter with Jake, as we've seen, moves people to blog. This encounter with Jake on Thursday was no different. You can read all about it here.
So, the message is clear. There are two possibilities if you live in NYC. 1) keep your eyes peeled at all times, particularly near Vegan or arty cafes, or 2) be an ageing rocker and throw a big bash.
Many thanks to IHJ for the new old pics from backstage at the SAG Awards back in 2004 and to BBMISwear and Mermon for links.
WDW Hot Autumnal Interlude
Taking full advantage of a stonkingly hot day, I spent a lovely Sunday exploring some of Oxford's beauty spots. Oxford's medieval stones love the golden shine of the sun.
The day included a visit to Hogwarts.
