movieaddict: (Default) London would be less pricey if I keep going like this. It's official - I'm going to the UK again. This will be visit no 4 over the course of 1 1/2 years.
This time Cardiff, going to see John Barrowman doing Panto there next January. Booked my ticket today, and probably will combine the trip to Cardiff with New Year's Eve in London. Hell, that's almost a year to go still. Honestly, I'm sure I didn't use to plan my holidays so far in advance just half a year ago... the things I do out of pure fangirlishness...

Just came back home after 4 (well, more 3 1/2) days in London. I'm knackered, I want to go to bed... but since I desperately want to tell about it, and my phone's broken down (forgot to put the wireless into the charger before departing - ouch! so no phoning friends or family tonight), LJ post it is.
This way to travelogue )

He's back!

*Yeah!* for David Tennant! Yesterday evening he returned to play Hamlet at the Novello Theatre. Some slight alterations were made for him (he doesn't have to pull Polonius off the stage for example) - still no guarantees that he'll perform every night next week, but I'm so happy right now, hoping that I might actually see him.
I'd like to thank my boss, who wouldn't give me time off in December so I had to postpone my trip to London until January. She might have earned herself a souvenir for that ;)

btw: the evening programme for my trip is now complete! Booked the last ticket today. It actually is theatre/musical every night. Thursday: Hamlet, Friday: Oliver!, Saturday: Avenue Q. Might be a bit of an overkill, but then I don't get to London that often, so I have to make the most of it.

I just realised that I had kind of "first contact" with Doctor Who way before the new series made it into German TV this year. Well, not with "The Doctor", but someone who borrowed his name in real life. The Doctor is in )

Mine just promised to bring his wlan router to our parents' home over the holidays. Thank god! Because they do have internet access, but the computer is up in the attic, and it's not very comfortable up there. Not to mention that there will be at least 4 people who'd want to use that PC, which can cause a little trouble. (or as my brother put it: "I'm not going to spent a week in that one-horse town without unlimited internet access!"). Now everybody can just take their notebook, mobile phone or game console of choice and do whatever they like whereever they like.

So today I told my mum that I'm gonna fly to the UK again, this time not for a play, but for a concert. Not that she'd say anything against it, cause she knows how much I enjoy it, but you know... spending altogether probably at least €250 just to see someone live on stage always makes me feel like I've got to confess my sins. Since she (not surprising, as she doesn't speak English very good and so can't watch my 'Torchwood' and 'Doctor Who' DVDs) didn't know who John was I showed her a snippet from the Faenol Festival vid. Her exact words - translated of course ;) - after only the first 30 seconds or so of "I Know Him So Well" were: "Wow, he's awesome!" - and she didn't mean his voice alone :D
Now I had to borrow her the Cole Porter album so she can enjoy a bit more of John's music - I'm wondering when I'll see that disc again. Probably not before Christmas. And I guess I could get her hooked on Torchwood as soon as it airs on German TV, which should be sometime this winter according to the network that bought it. Hehe, drooling over JB with my mom. That could be fun XD

Just got me a little something. I would say it's an early Christmas present, but then I got me so many of these recently, they just wouldn't fit under one tree. Read more... )

Since I tend to be all nervous and squirrelly when it comes to "new" things (which for example can be meeting new people or just taking a trip somewhere for the first time or some really teeny tiny thing other people would do blindfolded), I have to admit I was rather edgy more nervous ramblings this way )

OMG, I did it! I managed to get a ticket for the RSC's Hamlet, starring David Tennant in London next January! I'm so happy right now, I can't believe my luck. As predicted the servers of the RSC's and Delfont Mackintosh's (the theatre company) booking systems couldn't manage the amount of people trying to buy over the internet and more or less crashed, but after only 40 minutes of hitting the speed dial on my mobile I managed to get through to the theatre and book a ticket. Hell, I can't wash the grin off my face... Now the only things missing are a flight to London and a decent hotel. *goes planning fabulous weekend*
