So on Tuesday night I am going to see Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley. (Jason! Jason who I haven't seen since he opened for the Dresden Dolls is 2006! Glorious man!)
We're also having dinner with Amanda (and hopefully Jason?) since we're cooking for them. Can you see how calm I am about the fact that I'll be chilling backstage with them? Way calm.
I wish Hera was opening for her this time as well as Jason. It would be a happy splode.
I plan to make three dozen cupcakes to share with the fans. Some of them will look like tomatoes. You're just jealous you won't get to have any.
This weekend I'm going to get to see Neil Gaiman. It's only started really kicking in in the last day or so and now I'm sort of like !!! about it. NEIL. MEETING NEIL. I think I might faint, you guys. He's so !!!
I'll also be seeing Amanda Palmer on the same weekend and then again the next weekend. I feel so shiny and awesome. And tonight we're finishing Battlestar and that is pretty damn shiny as well.
Life is sweet. I'm kind of thrilled to be a part of it right at this moment.
This is so lovely.
Neil Gaiman + Amanda Palmer + Bill Nighy = THINGS I WANT TO HUG.
In other news, it is WAY too hot today :/
Accommodation for Wellington is now booked and I am getting pretty damn excited about the fact that in a week I shall be on my way out to see Amanda Palmer playing. GLEE. Two other people from my extended social circle and going to be there as well, and who knows if there might be others? I think there might be a nice amount of post-AFP drinking going on. Which reminds me that I need to have another look at what bars in Wellington are good, as well as finding shops that might sell awesome gothy shoes and corsets. Alison needs a corset and Wellington must provide.
I have an idea for my Perversion Party outfit but I will require an underbust for it. Laura, you said you had one that might possibly fit me? I shall have to come around at some point before Wednesday and try it out. (This will require remembering how the hell to get to your house.)
Our broadband has gone over = :(
First Party last night was awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed myself :D Hope some of the newbies stick around as all of the ones I spoke too seemed pretty cool and I therefore approve. And, as you know, my approval is all important to people ;)
Today my neck is killing me from all the headbanging, but hey that's the feeling of a party well done I think. And right now it's raining and lovely and Alison and I have characters to torture for Darker London. AND I'm going to get a cup of tea so don't even try to tell me today isn't FABULOUS.
First, though, I must reply to emails that have been sitting around in my inbox...
(holy crap, Amanda Palmer in, like, ten sleeps. SO. FRAKKING. EXCITED.)
Currently pinned to my notice board are three tickets for the Amanda Palmer show in Wellington on the 12th March. 'Excited' doesn't even cover it, baby. I can't freaking wait.
Alina, Alison and I have a day in hand as well which means we can go see the giant squid at Te Papa. It's going to be awesome fishy goodness.
