Tom Baker and GDL  
Back from a busy and lovely few days! First, I was at HIGNFY filming with morganmufle and matildabj on Thursday night, and matildabj says that she can hear me laughing. I can't refute it because I don't know what I sound like when I laugh, but I'm expecting that I'm much maligned :) The filming was fun although it went on forever because dear Tom Baker has apparently not only swallowed the surreal fish but has married its mother as well. Chris Addison was hilarious however, much more so than Lab Rats might lead you to expect. I'd definitely like to see him live if it's possible at any point.

Saturday was popping into London in order to freeze in a queue for two hours, because dear GDL was late. I think he was probably hungover, since he and Gemma had been to a Halloween party the night before, so nothing new there :) As it was, I didn't mind too much as I huddled gratefully with dcsunset44 and her Mum, under their umbrella. It felt very much like we were penguins on the tundra with our backs turned out to the snow. All we were missing were the eggs on our feet...

Worth it though - Gareth got his phone out and showed me him and Gemma dressed up the night before as vampires, in *very* good undead make-up, contact lens and enormous fangs! Aww.

Then it was hot-footing it back out of London (after going shopping in the Skechers shop briefly, god I love their stuff, oh, and also getting soaked - again), writing more of the Avalon freeform with M. and H. on Saturday night, and driving on to a lovely pub lunch with K. and S. today. Phew. Tired now. So - that means work tomorrow then, doesn't it? :)

Weird. I currently have a Skechers' shop page open in another tab trying to decide which pair that I want! And it's so hard!!!

Isn't that weird?! I love Skechers - they're my current favourite footwear, although as styles and stuff shift, that may change. What did you go for in the end? I bought two pairs, with different detailing, of the Bikers.

AND these...

I'm over the moon about the first pair!!!

Aww, they're gorgeous, hon! Hmm. I might go back and think about boots...

Hello there :D

Saturday was soooo much fun, even though it was wet and cold!

Looks like Blue Gillespie might be doing a gig in Birmingham on Saturday, not sure of the venue yet though.

Any chance you can get there?

Yay! It was fun wasn't it? Ridiculous, really, given the weather, but still great!

Yep, I'm planning on being there! Dear god, what we do for this lad :) The venue is South Birmingham College which has local bands from all round the country gigging in the venue all day. The really good thing is that it's free admission. It's from 2.00, and goodness knows when Blue Gillespie will be on. I had a look on the Gigbeth website.

On the bad side, because of that I doubt it's going to be possible to see John switch the Birmingham lights on or hear him sing at his gig, which is also that afternoon. *sigh* In the same city and impossible to to do both. Bugger.

*waves* Ah yes, but there's always something coming up, you can't do everything - there's cons in the US that I'd love to go to, but I'm not going to think about them! :)

It was indeed snowing, although that doesn't happen often - snow in the UK is not at all predictable. It is early, but not unheard of, to have some in October. I think it bodes badly - I think it's going to be a chilly winter! Brrr.

I'll try and say hello to Gareth from you, if I can, if I see him this Saturday. I hope so! *hugs*
