Weight and Stuff Report – 22 October 2011

Bother, up again today. As it was another bright and sunny day, I persuaded myself to go out for a bit. I went into Newcastle to have a proper look at the Mervyn Peake exhibition at the Laing that I mentioned the other day, then wandered down to the Quayside, where I solved a mystery before walking over to the Baltic, where I was planning to have a laugh look at the Turner Prize show, but that was full of similarly inclined people[1], and apparently the queue to get in after them was also full, so I missed out that bit. I’ll probably try again another day…

[1] Many of whom, are, I am quite sure serious fans of modern non-representational art and don’t need to read the labels to know what’s being symbolised by the whateveritis in question.
