Last year, I went to the UK. I went to London, Birmingham and Cardiff, as well as Manchester and Southampton. But I never finished the documentation of that trip, and I feel that I should, since I have two days worth of pics THAT INVOLVE TODAY'S BIRTHDAY BOY, NICHOLAS H. CRUENTUM, DIVA.

I PRESENT, CARDIFF, DAY TWO.

There are underpants. )

This past weekend I took my kid to DC to see her family and also the pandas, who are like family. Like the shark the panda had millions of razor sharp teeth, which they use like a hacksaw to cut through bone, candy and fences. The Chinese believe that if you find a discarded panda tooth, you have the power to summons Godzilla!

Ahem.

So yeah, here was our trip, pictoral style:

VIVI AND MANDER GO TO DC (NOT DRAGON*CON) )

STAY TUNED FOR THE HALLOWEEN COOKIE DISASTER.
amand_r: (YOUR MOM)
I HAD SEX WITH GARETH DAVID LLOYD ON A SINK AT DRAGON*CON AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY MANICURE:



Yes, this sums up my whole D*C experience nicely. )

That was my big fat D*C exp. Seriously, few panels, lots of booze, tonnes of food, great people, EXCELLENT CONVERSATIONS, and a renewed sense of writing. I WILL WRITE THAT FPREG. IT WILL BE AWESOME.

OH AND I THINK I MIGHT HAVE A SEASON TO AIR THIS FALL.

Oh, and Jack and Ianto's post-it D*C adventure )

BUT FOR NOW, my dad is out of surgery, and I'm waiting to hear how he is, and I have plans to make biscotti with cabernet cocoa powder, and possibly some cupcakes.

I dreamt about biscotti last night.

I made a list of shit to do divided by pages: on page per category, house, work, online, general, errands, etc. IT'S NINE PAGES LONG.

See ya'll on the flip side.

EDIT: I bought their Netherworld Blend and the Reanimator Blend. The latter is great. Haven't tasted the firmer. Go there and browse the teas and coffees.
amand_r: (the server is robust)
BYE.

IF YOU ARE GOING TOO, ANYONE WANNA SHARE A CAB TO A DIM SIM PLACE SUNDAY MORNING? LIKE 11 AM?

EDIT: IF WE GO SATURDAY, WE MIGHT HAVE ACCESS TO A CAR!

ALSO, IF YOU WANNA MEET AND GET DRINKS/COFFEE/METHAMPHETAMINES, EMAIL ME AT AMAND AT GMAIL DOT COM, AND WE CAN ARRANGE CRAPPLES.

NOT SCRAPPLE. SICKOS.

So the con over, [livejournal.com profile] cruentum was due to fly back to his HOME, and I was to train onwards to Cardiff. I bid him adieu and was a sad panda as I packed my bag. Imagine my surprise when I walked back to the station to find him walking out! NO WAI. There was some sort of issue with his flight and his reservation was cancelled. So, having nothing better to do, apparently, he decided that he could study just as much in Cardiff as he could at home (HAH!), so he CAME WITH ME.

THAT IS RIGHT.

We trained it there and settled in at Ty Rosa, then WENT OUT TO EXPLORE, which resulted in rain logged clothes and blisters, but it was well worth it. So here was the first day of Cardiff, land of awesome. )
amand_r: (bunny/i'm a meanie)
Hahahaaah I am glad that you all enjoyed the first leg of mah trip!

London and La Cage over (Nick humoured me in my disbelief that all pubs closed at midnight and got lost in Chelsea with me at one in the morning. He's a good sport, considering we'd only just met…seven hours earlier, and some of those had been spent ogling John Barrowman's magnificent cleavage), we set our sights for Birmingham!

--record scratch—

Look, that was where the Con was, okay? )
amand_r: (the asian persuasion)
Oh hai! Back in October I went to Great Britain! Remember that? I got to see tonnes of awesome people and hang out with [livejournal.com profile] cruentum, who is indeed my long lost brother, or perhaps just the really gay looking wonder twin. I took lots of pictures, but they just sat there on my netbook.

Well no more! Long lost gay wonder twin Xiao Di Di whined at me until I got off my delicate and shapely arse and uploaded them, so now I feel like sharing choice ones with you!

Today we visit: LONDON. I should warn you that I rarely take pictures of notable things. )

That was fun, wasn't it?

UNRELATED THOUGHTS:

1. I'm glad people seem to like the poly fic. Am really surprised that, except for a dubious delicious comment, I haven't heard a peep about the urine drinking.

2. Tired. So very tired.

3. What kind of celeb I am. Big effing surprise. )

4. I sprained my ankle twice in the UK—once on the first Friday whilst navigating Birmingham's New Street and trying to escape the street cleaning zamboni and then later in Cardiff on Wednesday whilst trying to dance on some paving stones that turned out to be grass filled holes. Crue LOLed both times because he is a heartless bastard. But in retrospect I walked on it even though it was swollen, walked on it a lot, and it doesn't hurt, but it's swollen in that hard way that means I did something to ligaments or something, and it was all blue a few days later the first time. But surprisingly no pain. I just laced my shoe around it, and was good to go. Now however, it feels waterlogged like after I had the kid and my ankles were so filled with fluid that I couldn’t bend my foot at the ankle. Le sigh. I need cyber feet. LISA! UPGRADE MY FEET! JUST THE FEET! WAIT, WAIT, WHAT ARE YOU DO---BRRRRRAZKPT!

5. I have many things to say about the UK, but I wrote everything out by hand. I have pics, but they are scattered. And they are of signs and stuff, not people or sites or anything. Instead I wrote poetry. So here you go, my landing in the UK:

Touchdown )

I don't know when I got so maudlin. I was listening to Mika. That's my excuse. DAMN YOU CRUE.

ALSO, I LIKE TO THINK THAT MY NEW DEFAULT ICON IS PRETTY MUCH MY ENTIRE PERSONALITY. KEEP IN MIND THAT HE'S ABOUT TO STUNGUN SOMEONE. THAT'S MY BOY. BRRRRRRAZKT.

As a certain German taught me to say, Scheißbären. Or if you're in the mood for something else, Ours à chier.

EDIT: Watched the end of the latest Office. I shouldn't have.

NO REALLY.

Amand-r: I heard that it is frightfully easy to get access to riding in Wales.
Hope: Jack posts his number around everywhere, yes.
Amand-r: LOL YOU SICKO. NO. LOLOR5.

1. I need the three Torchwood books. You know, The House That Jack Built To House His Concubines and the other two. But see, I have about 400 bucks burning a hole in my paypal account, and I need to use those funds to buy them. THE BOOK DEPOSITORY IS A LYING LOLA WHO SAYS THEY TAKE PAYPAL, BUT THEY DO NOT. Nor does Amazon. WHERE, PEOPLE, GIVE ME THE PAYPAL HOOK UP.

2. I NEED TO BE HIRED AS A WRITER ON PSYCH. FOR FUN.

3. UK TRIP ITINERARY )

4. CALL ME MANDER. SO IT WAS WRITTEN IN THIS BITCHING FIC, CONSUMPTION BY [livejournal.com profile] phaetonschariot, SO MOTE IT BE ANNAT.

5. I might be on cough syrup right now.

6. [INSERT RANT ABOUT ALL KINDS OF SRS BZNS TOPICS THAT HAVE BEEN FLIT FLIT FLITTING ACROSS MY FLIST LIKE SO MANY PAPER CRANES.]

7. [I HAVE A WRITING UPDATE.]

8. [BACON JAM HAS BEEN ACQUIRED, BUT NOT YET TASTED. SWEETBREADS THAWING. MAY IT PLEASE YOU SIR, EAT? MAY IT PLEASE YOU SIR, FEED.]
amand_r: (doctor who/HARRIET JONES)
1. You know what I wish? I wish you all would trust me. Trust me in fic to take you there. I'll get you there. Honest. Blue, Jean (heh, together you're "bluejean" who is also Bluejean07), tell them that I took you to poly town, and it was good. Srsly, people, I can't EXPLAIN myself. I can only SHOW you. Have I let you down yet? No? Shut up and let me finger bang you into happiness.

2. Tomorrow I plan out the rest of my UK trip. I will post the itinerary when it's settled and if you are in the area that I am in at any given time I would love to see you (whoever you are).

3. Had another moment in which I realised that I want to be in love again. I just don't know whom that would be with. I don't think I can. I think he's dead. I want to be in love with that one again.

4. Jesus, when is this going to be over?

5. Thought about buying myself a cemetery plot. Realised I might not even be in this city when I die, so it's impractical. OTOH, I might just get myself one for my birthday next year and pretend that it's mine.

6. memeage:

[livejournal.com profile] verasteine gave me porn, post-its, writing, John Barrowman, Tori Amos. )

My take on Yami no Matsuei, Jack, John Hart, Gwen, Adam, and Lois Habiba. )
amand_r: (Default)
Jack and Ianto go to Washington D.C. The coffee is bad. Ianto suffers. )

Okay! Here is what I discovered: I took a shitload of pics in DC, and most of them are signs. No really. I'm an out of context signage whore. But that is for another post. In this one, I give you The mighty Torchwood Crime and Punishment Adventure. )
