Tara! Those photos are amazing! :D


Absolutely spiffing time, ladies! :D

Thanks so much to Sarah for having me stay (sorry for sleep/drunk-walking and ending up in your bed... next time nail me to the floor :oops: :lol: ).

Everyone's costumes were magnificent; loved everyone staring at us (an exhibitionist? Me?). The whole weekend was just fantastic! I keep remembering weird moments like the mad trampy guy, singing under his breath about being John Wayne's biggest fan, and picking up cigarette butts and putting them in his back pocket; finding Anne's mitten in the street; finding a chair leg on top of the radiator in the pub, brandishing it and saying, "I was going to stick this in you!"

The itinerary was brilliant (am going to frame that, oh yes), I loved all the locations; especially Leighton House (I wanted to lick those tiles); and my feet still feel like watermelons, but it was all so worth it!

The April Hadfield meet cannot come soon enough!! :D *big group hug*

A couple more photos...

The aftermath... and getting ready for the drinking games!

I'm loving the fact that there's one of me attacking Sarah and one of Sarah sitting between my legs. Anyway, more posh photos.

Of course it is! Although we never did quite get to stripping "him" down to his pants and stripy socks and hanging him over a well.

As much as I tried too...

~waits for someone to post the Charlifer picture~

Wheee! What a great weekend! Had such a great time that I was tragically sat on the bus home from work today running through it in my head... :D

Anyway, first off, for those who couldn't make it (next time, my lovely Soph, we will kidnap you I promise!), here is the programme:

And here's a few photos, which hopefully don't replicate any already posted...

Wig-swapping... it was only a matter of time, eh?

Out of all of you that went to Lundun, were any of you Lundun virgins? If so, what did you think? Me and my mate wanted to go to Lundun before Xmas but I think we're going in the new year now. And I'm very scared (big city, miles from home). :oops:

Not sure about everyone else, but I've been 6 times in the last 12 months. There's nothing to be scared of, IMO :) .

Nothing to be scared of Tinkerbell, i walked around Lundun all day on my own and I'm a foreigner! It was brilliant, I went to the natural history museum, went to Westminster Abbey, caught the tube everywhere, went and had lunch in St James' Park, went to Kensel Green Cemetary and then met up with mum and saw a show. Twas a brilliant day, the only day out of seven weeks I got to be alone! hahahaha

Just wanted to say the programs looks excellent, and im definatley keeping them so next time im in London, i can go do some TLOG sight seeing...

omg wouldnt it be great if you were locations manager for a show....i would love that job! *sigh*

btw, where is the Corrib's Rest (is that what its called?) located from Spaced?
