Oh bloody hell, I'm a bit behind, aren't I?

[That's because I'm still in Lundun, waiting for the next show on the Friday! So right now I'm sat on Kate's computer while she's at work...]

My very quick recap of the weekend;

Ran around Uni bedroom literlly throwing everything into a suitcase & then struggling to catch train with three bags, a cane & a painting.

Met up with Sean [friend I haven't seen in months], gave him his Christmas present [the painting] & he helped me navigate my way to the Hammersmith via ze tube.

Found everyone! All went back to Sarah's, discussing show & covering Chez's ears as we did so.

Drank alot & ate pizza. Rolled around on floor - literally - as Linz, Kate, Chez & myself stayed up until STUPID O CLOCK discussing fecking ridiculous ideas for a new League series. Anne & Neds... Oh Jesus... [wipes tear]

Got up & jumped around like a loony while changing into Lucifer costume.

Visited everywhere on program [thanks for the compliments to those who gave them :D] & wouldn't stop being an excitable goit.
- I especially loved posing outside of St. Bart's because of everyone saying things like "I want a picture with Lucifer! Lucifer, go & pose some more!" Hee hee.

Much vegging in various pubs, getting asked questions about what we were doing & eventually getting bored, subsequently coming up with stupid answers. "We're doing a playyyy!" or "We're not in fancy dress, we came in a TARDIS."

Did Ripper tour by ourselves;
- Saw actual Ripper Tour, who obviously wanted to be as cool as us.
- Was told by a freak old man that I look like Cherie Blair. :shock:
- Did sordid things with Charlie & Midsommer in an alley.

Drank [again] back at Sarah's & watched Winterbournes/Apocalypse. Took very, very funny photographs of Venus's true colours/Charlie & Lucifer giving in to their natural desires.
Subsequently died laughing.

Rolled into bed about five o clock... Again... After watching the Mark Dr Who Night bits a few times. Ahem.

Went to Spaced pub with Charlie, Bella, Kit-... I mean, Sarah, Tracy, Linz & Kate. Did uncomfortable sit on the railings & ate two bowls of chips & a cornetto.

Went back to Kate's & perved over Batman: The Animated Series with her.

SUCH a good weekend. I can't thank everyone enough for just being so funny/having brilliant costumes/always up for a laugh/just being generally groovy.
I'm really going to miss this weekend. I hope we can do it again. :D

P.S If you didn't get a Lucifer calling card [hehehehe] then let me know & I will send you one!

Blame gin-soaked Kitty! She led him astray

Midsommer - get away from those flames!

And I'll stay here till the trail's cold and return again with my meaty gold
You want it! You can't get enough of Hilary Briss and his special stuff...

Noooo, I went outside and my PJs got wet. And then when I said "My pyjama bottoms are wet" - Sarah looked at me like I had done something naughty.

Yep, that's about it. :P

Photos are all great! I loooove the sepia ones lots! Here's a few of mine. :)

Hee hee the phots are really good, like the ones in the Spaced pub.

Staying up til stupid o clock was so funny. Anne and Barry, Dean and Lisgoe were the funniest ones by far. *giggles in a corner*

I am loving those portrait photos, they are fantastic

Better get going, have a Gents tour to go and see. ;)

What did people say to that? Or did they just decide you were mad and wander off? :lol:

Linzi is just dirty, that's all................ hee heeeeee.

Must get my arse in gear and put photos up.
Ahaha! You are just as wrong as Linzi! :P

And here is Kate in Winterbornes. Which will mean nothing to anyone who wasn't there... (but don't let us stop you re-watching the videos to try and work out what we're referring to... .;) )

More random memories from the weekend:

Taking the piss out of Mark's Bella Pok accent. Bex in the operating theatre - "How ghoulish!" Me in bizarre positions on the sofa - "Charlie's very flexible!" "She's deformed like I was!" WALL OF MONG! "Why is that lady wearing a bustle?" "I'm going to tell my grandchildren about this when I get home!" People at work thinking I'd actually cut my hair off. Kate stopping cars with her cane. "For a shilling I'll swallow, sir!" Bex getting a REAL buttonhole in the pub. "We are your husbands, and we've come into your... *ahem*" ;) Gail looking terrified at our husband discussion. Jiffy bags full of leaves. "I'm having imaginary tenting!" Waking up with muscles hurting from laughing as if I'd done twelfty million sit ups... The best weekend EVER!!! Love you all! :D

Oh, and here's a couple of pictures from Sunday:

Image

Kate goes all Matrix on us.

Image

Kate and Tracy fight like girls. :P

Brilliant photos! I love all your costumes, and that programme is very good indeed! :)

I saw a lonely mitten in town the other day. It was a tiny one though. Maybe Anne really had a baby. :shock:

Just a couple more comments...

Adam, why didn't you come along? You should have!! :P

Tinkerbell, London is very much not scary. I promise!

Amy, I will happily be your tour guide if you ever get over here to do the tour... :D
