Bam Bam!  
Ooh, just got back in, so I need sleep, and this will therefore be short!

Gareth's gig yesterday in Cardiff, plus the rest of the local bands including Disgracelands (most of Blue Gillespie) who are really good musicians, and the music is growing on me. I bought their cd anyway!

Plus I got bam-bamed this time - twice! Yay! (I knew a particular top might work, and I'm apparently not wrong :)

(This is no surprise to anyone, but a GDL two feet in front of a person, on stage, is... Well. Wow. There may be inappropriate crushes :)

And dear Gareth was a bit tipsy, bless. The moon shone that night, and there are pictures, although not for public consumption, I am afraid to say. It doesn't quite seem fair...

Then drive home at midnight, bed at 2.30, up for 6.30 to head to Collectormania! Even more yay! Just got back.

I got persuaded into going to the party in the evening, and also to buy a Gold ticket for The Hub in Ocotber. *shuffles feet* That's what credit cards are for, isn't it? I'm looking at you purplephoenix03!

I can't namecheck everyone now, but god, all the Torchwood fangirls were fantastic - talk about making a glorious weekend!!! Thank you everyone, and I'll see you all at The Hub, if not at the Hewletts!

*drive by muhahahahaha*

I put up my con report! Not epic by my standards, but still impressive LOL

OMG I have got to do a longer report - it reminded me of so many things. Unfortunately, I am expected at a barbecue. *woe* Oh, the hardships we have to endure... :)

Yeah, purplephoenix03 is evil!!! As far as my bank account is concerned anyway ;)

Had a blast with you this week end!
Am sooooooo grateful you persuaded me to come to Cardiff even if it was a bit mad getting there from Paris!

See you in June!
Valderys: McShep - What shall we do tonightvalderys on May 5th, 2008 11:20 am (UTC)
I know - I'm so glad you made it - it was a brilliant day in Cardiff, if a little surreal when I look back on it! Can't wait for the Hewletts!

I am so jealous. Thanks so much for posting about Gareth. I just love reading stories about him. Came here by way of purplephoenix. Do you mind if I friend you?
Valderys: Ianto -  wedding fairyvalderys on May 5th, 2008 11:22 am (UTC)
Cool, that's fine, but bear in mind I'm not a big poster, but so long as you know, friend away! It's freaky wandering round a small beer garden with him, rather than a hall full of screaming fangirls, but very very cool!

It was lovely to see you, brief as it was - but that's the way things are at these events! Did you get some food eventually?! :D

Am knackered. Going into work an hour later than usual today - thank goodness I can do that. Still, I need a LOT more of more sleep than this! *yawns*
Valderys: Cube - Worth - half deadvalderys on May 5th, 2008 07:08 pm (UTC)
It was lovely! I'm sorry I was so spaced - I did eventually find a sandwich, on the way to buying a ticket for The Hub from the Apple shop's free internet :)

Am not terribly with it today, but been to a barbecue as it's bank holiday over here, so at least I don't have to think about work until tomorrow...

Yay for fabness! Sounds like you had a blast.
Valderys: Cat - sleepin' off the boozevalderys on May 5th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC)
I've had such a Torchwood-y three weeks - I suspect I may have a bit of a come down from the high, in the next few days, which is one reason why I may be going to Abergavenney after all! :) (Aber is where Gareth's next gig is...)
Kalypso: Blake/Avonkalypso_v on May 5th, 2008 10:17 am (UTC)
I'm still doing a double-take every time I see phrases like "Gareth's gig". Because... well... I'd quite like to see Gareth Thomas doing a gig, but I'm not really expecting to.
Valderys: Captain Jack - Cardiff again.  Woo.valderys on May 5th, 2008 07:09 pm (UTC)
No, but he was in Torchwood so it's possible he might be in a future squee report at some point :)
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on May 5th, 2008 12:14 pm (UTC)
I think she should come with a warning - 'This fangirl is hazardous to your bank account' lol

Staying with our lovely purplephoenix, she mentioned you might be going to Abergavenny at the end of the month. :D
Ash: AJ (scientist)purplephoenix03 on May 5th, 2008 01:13 pm (UTC)
Oi! I didn't do anything!

...except maybe not give our darling here a choice. Heee.
Valderys: Dean - Maybe I want to look cheapvalderys on May 5th, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes - it's your fault! See, that girl there! Oh god. And, to be honest, knowing all you lot would have been in the reception without me - that would have been more than a fangirl could bear!! :)
Valderys: Dean - Maybe I want to look cheapvalderys on May 5th, 2008 07:13 pm (UTC)
God yes! Although really, I'm just weak - weak, I tell you! I said that - I'm too suggestible at these things - I just throw money away. Perhaps I should give purplephoenix03 my credit card and be done!? :)

I am thinking of Abergavenny although checking my diary now, I have a small clash that I'm going to try and get out of, and I'll need to book the time off work for the Monday morning, so it's not definite, but I am definitely *aiming* to get there!
Ash: Ash (fangirl fun)purplephoenix03 on May 5th, 2008 07:22 pm (UTC)
Give me your credit card? Why i like that idea... HAHA.

Oh oh oh, go see my LJ I put up a vid clip! I just finished editting the one where you sing to Kai... this is so much fun!!
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on May 5th, 2008 07:37 pm (UTC)
Don't give her ideas!!!!! It's dangerous! Very!

I was asking about Abergavenny because I'm trying to go but can't find anywhere to stay and I was looking for help (and poosibly someone to share with as well)
Valderys: Torchwood - the Scooby Gangvalderys on May 5th, 2008 09:30 pm (UTC)
I can try and see what to book into - there must be something nearby - I can stay sober and drive us, so that won't be a problem. Let me see what I can do...
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on May 5th, 2008 09:33 pm (UTC)
Yay! *hugs*

I can get a train to Abergavenny and back but it would just be getting to the venue and back.
Valderys: Torchwood - the Scooby Gangvalderys on May 5th, 2008 09:57 pm (UTC)
I've found a backpackers hostel called the Blacksheep opposite the station - a twin would be £15.00 each, I think - I could ring them tomorrow? Not fancy, but it would be cheap!
Valderys: Captain John - did I mention I'm armed?valderys on May 6th, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC)
I've rung the Blacksheep hostel and they've got us a twin booked in my name for the 25th (although their twins have four beds in them - what's up with that?!) I have been assured that we'd have it to ourselves though. The website is here.

Now all I need to do is check with work...
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on May 8th, 2008 09:06 am (UTC)
Sorry for not getting back to you - the net at Uni has decided not to like me and I've not been able to have much time online.


But yayness for getting somewhere *hugs* Though a twin room with 4 beds - how does that work?!
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on May 8th, 2008 09:23 am (UTC)
I might have hit a slight problem - because I'm getting the train down it will take me about 5 hours to get to Abergavenny.

The problem part is that there is only one train on Sunday and I won't even get to Abergavenny until 6pm at the earliest.

The other option I have is to come down on the Saturday. Is there anyway the booking could be changed so I could stay on the Saturday as well? I don't mind paying for it.
Valderys: Torchwood - the Scooby Gangvalderys on May 5th, 2008 09:28 pm (UTC)
Ooh, yes - I have seen it! It's not *too* wobbly is it - that's my first piece of videoing ever! Looking forward to the Kai clip! Yay!
20hrsinamerica on May 5th, 2008 01:49 pm (UTC)
Lucky you!! Glad it was good.
Valderys: Torchwood - the Scooby Gangvalderys on May 5th, 2008 07:16 pm (UTC)
It's been exhausting but wonderful - are you Hubbing? Since I've been persuaded, everyone must now, of course, go!! :)
20hrsinamerica on May 6th, 2008 12:16 am (UTC)
Sadly, I'm not. If I was still here, I totally would! Just like I'd be going to the Hewlett thing if I was. *sighs* I'd love to come back but that's midterm time and I'll have just visited DC the month before so I suspect I will be broke. lol Such is life.
