eng :: i am exceeding ill too

a preview of the existential crisis to come

This is a quick post to cover a couple things:

  • I am back from travelling the wilds with my eBFFs. I arrived safely in Canada a few hours ago now.
  • I am not particularly happy about this.
  • By that I mean it's possible I spent most of yesterday + today like

  • Anyway, I did have a great time! I will write a more detailed post probably when I am less full of pizza and jetlag.
  • But shout-out to mildlyconfused, erethesunrises and anythingbutgrey for meeting up with us and putting up with our tendency to travel in a large brigade and also my inability to write informative text messages on my 2003 phone. It was great to meet all of you!
  • I haven't caught up on any TV, which means I am well behind on Community, GOT and LOK. Please don't spoil me for any in the meantime! I'll catch up soon.
  • I hear LJ did something to the comments that made fandomsecrets flounce? I'm so not in the mood to deal with this shit, LJ.
  • Lastly [I hear there is thus rumour going around about DW 7x05.]"Susan Tyler"? LOL. Chances of this being true: approximately one in a billion. If this were true, chance that I would like it: 0.


So I think that covers most of it.

trip overview + doctor faustus review

So, the short version is that my trip was amazing and I desperately wish I had a TARDIS and could constantly revisit that particular two-week period over and over in a Moffat-style disregarding of timelines and universal laws. Now I am back in Canada and pretty sick and my sunburn is peeling and I am a hot mess who is significantly poorer than she was a couple weeks ago, but I REGRET NOTHING.

I arrived in Heathrow on the Thursday morning and met up with shinyopals and together we took the longest bus in the universe back to her city. Frances joined us in London the following Tuesday, and then on Thursday we met up with starlightmoonla and lorelaisquared and the five of us spent most of the rest of our time together. It was awesome, the bigger group meant lots of fun and lots of sub-groups splitting off.

I think that's about it for established events at like... particular tourist places. Obviously we also did things like "eat at pubs" and "walk around" and "have a picnic" and "watch Fright Night" that were a lot of fun. There was also that time I got my book signed, and that time a guy walked past me on the street and I nearly died of heart palpitations.

You may have noticed that I have barely mentioned Much Ado About Nothing in this post! That is because it is getting its own long-winded post. Get ready. In other theatre news, we also saw Mamma Mia (fun, but I was sitting next to two small children who fidgeted and were incredibly irritating the whole time) and Collapse )

Okay, this is already super long. See why Much Ado needs its own post?
eng :: is that not strange?

GUYS SHE HELD MY BOOK IN HER HANDS

I started writing a longer post but I'm borrowing lorelaisquared's computer so I will cut to the part that everyone here might actually care about: on Thursday we did the Doctor Who Experience and I took a billion pictures and then, and more importantly, we went to the stage door at Wyndhams. There were lots of people there and poor shinyopals and goldy_dollar were too short to push through but I am large and have long arms:



LOOK

IT IS CATHERINE TATE SIGNING A MY SCRIPT

THEN I SAID "THANK YOU" AND SHE SAID SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF "OH NO PROBLEM" AND I PROMPTLY SAID "I LOVE YOU" (LIRL)


TBH I am not actually 100% sure she is signing my script in this picture but she is signing a script in front of me and I have a picture of it so I'm just going to pretend. I got both their signatures! I did not tell David Tennant that I loved him which is probably for the best. I will probably post the billion photos I took at some point but I don't want to hog lorelaisquared's computer any longer. BUT I HAD TO SHARE.
