Yuletide gifts  
This is a few days late, but I've been off in the wilds watching panto (with Kai Owen) and Blue Gillespie (with Gareth, of course :) I'm afraid I'm in no fit state to review either though, as the night of the panto I came down with stomach flu, and, well, enough said. I'm still not well now.

On the other hand, I wanted to pimp the fics that were written for me in Yuletide, that's right, fics! I was a very lucky bunny. It was the most glorious crop! I was a pinch hit, you see, I think that's why I was so blessed.

First there were two Being Human fics - which were, oh, so lovely. I want Guy Flanagan back even more after reading them. I am deeply suspicious of the new series, since it has been recast and is being written for a 'younger audience'. I wanted a story this year with the Being Human cast that I know now, that I love, and that's what I got. Beautiful.

the abyss gazes also into you and Connections

And then - THEN - I got the piece de resistance: Mitchell and Webb! OMG! I've been asking for them on Yuletide for the last three years, it was glorious, it was everything I could have ever wanted. It was David failing to ask for what he wanted, it was Rob's cynicism, and practicality, and, and... I don't even have words. It made me so happy, I cried. There I was, all red-nosed on Christmas morning, and I couldn't explain it! How silly and sentimental am I? :) But it was the best Christmas present in the world.

The Other One

Hope you're feeling better. I didn't see you at all at the BG gig and I'd been looking for you but it was so ridiculously cold in there that after a while the concern about whether I was going to lose my toes to frostbite sort of overrode everything else!

And yay on getting the fic you wanted.

Yeah, I'm much better now! Still wobbly, but my head's clearer. All I was capable of at BG was sitting on a bench in the corner, so I'm not suprised you didn't spot me! I'd wrapped up well, so I wasn't too cold until right at the end of the evening, when everyone went home and suddenly it was minus a thousand! :)

We went pretty soon after Disgracelands finished - we'd normally have hung around for a bit but Gareth had scarpered before they finished playing and I was just too cold! Being dressed in a short dress and heels I had not wrapped up warm!

BTW have friended you as have been meaning to do for ages. Hope that's Ok.

No worries on the friending - I've just friended back. And yeah, it was the coldest gig I think I've ever been to! I don't think leaving all the doors open in freezing weather was the best idea. They didn't have enough people to keep the heat levels up, basically.
