First, I'm carrying cloves for reddragdiva, piles of booze for the New Year's Eve party, and a six-pack of Mountain Dew for vampwillow (not sure when we can do a hand-off yet). Any other requests? Books? Boots from John Fluevog bought at a favorable exchange rate?

That out of the way, here's the schedule:
Dec 30 Thursday: arrive, find our way to meico's Pad Du Swank, where we will esconce ourselves for the duration of our trip.
Dec 31 Friday: 2:30 matinee of Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake, evening party in Streatham with the Fab Four and many other fantastic people.
Jan 1 Saturday: wake up on the carpet of one of the two apartments. Have lilithmagna help me figure out how to make poached eggs on crumpets. Eat, fall back asleep. Evening plans TBA depending on hangover.
Jan 2 Sunday: day, free. Evening, make mexican food at reddragdiva's flat.
Jan 3 Monday: hope the goddess will smile upon me at provide tickets for the 2 PM matinee of His Dark Materials Part One.
Jan 4 Tuesday: day free, teach wechsler and valkyriekaren how to play Puerto Rico, spreading a meme in person.
Jan 5 Wednesday: day free (try to sneak in a matinee of something), evening cook dinner for the Fab Four (plus us two ... currently thinking veggie gumbo or some such hearty winter item - farroto? pasta e fagiole?)
Jan 6 Thursday: day hopefully with duranorak, evening 7:15 HDM Part 2 (tickets bought - I have an extra, who wants to come?)
Jan 7 Friday: day free, evening with Fab Four.
Jan 8 Saturday: day free, evening trip to Slimies or some other club TBA (ergotia's pick)
Jan 9 Sunday: hang out with wechsler.
Jan 10 Monday: return to Seattle. I'll cry if I want to as long as it's for the right reasons.

I'm expecting our "free time" to be filled with geekeries like the V&A, the London History Museum, St. Paul's, the Guildhall Art Gallery (for some Pre-Raphaelite goodness), a return to the Tate Modern, the London Transport Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, the Aquarium, the Globe, Greenwich, etc., and to FINALLY make it to Camden. We've still got about 400 shows we want to see, including Grand Hotel (painfully sold out). As usually, we'll run out of time before we run out of things to do *sob* .

Today, it's sunny and I'm going to go for a walk as I have little to do at work other than write my end-of-the-year review. Tonight, we're hitting #52 with a trip to the Harvard Exit to see Bad Education, the new Almodovar movie. Yay end of the year work deadness!

So looking forward to seeing you!

If you think you can stand more than a day of my company, I am potentially up for joining you at the V&A, the Tate Modern, the Natural History Museum, the Aquarium and/or Camden - so if you do happen to manage any of those and want a kitten following along, let me know?

I think it will be okay with shadowdaddy, we'll see how much of our company you can tolerate.

My, I feel like I'm on the verge of getting my very own posse together!

(PS: eager to hear your feedback on how MY holidays went ...)

Mwrow? :)

Oh, sweetie, sorry, I've not been able to catch up with LJ yet - do you want to point me at the post(s) you're thinking of now?

My Christmas recap
Er, well, the bad bits are fairly well captured with this entry, better here, ending fairly painlessly here. Of course, since I've posted about 900 times in the last week it's a little hard to pick the relevant entries out.
Dec. 27th, 2004 09:13 pm (UTC)
Sorry, the HTML is having a little trouble with the first two of those. :) But I can probably figure out which entries you meant from your LJ, I would have thought...

To think I do web testing for a living
Oh, the shame. First entry is here, second is here.

Re: *meep*
Looking forward to it!
Dec. 27th, 2004 09:08 pm (UTC)
I would love some cloves too, if you could!

Good lord, I'm a mule!
Are you okay with Djarums? Preference as to type?
Dec. 27th, 2004 11:14 pm (UTC)
Re: Good lord, I'm a mule!
Yeah, Djarums are fine. I'm not particularly choosy, though if you can get blacks I'll go for the posy old goth look!

the clatter of little ... hooves
PS: Thought for sure you'd go for the shoes! Sure none of these catches your fancy?
Dec. 27th, 2004 11:15 pm (UTC)
Re: the clatter of little ... hooves
Hmm. None of those look particularly me!

Re: the clatter of little ... hooves
Well, I think this probably would be, but they're not on sale. (Did I at least get the style right?)
Dec. 28th, 2004 12:29 pm (UTC)
Re: the clatter of little ... hooves
Those are cute! But the price! Yowzah!
Dec. 27th, 2004 09:28 pm (UTC)
Liz says if you can fit the oven thermometer as well that'd be dandy ;-D though looking at the list so far ...
Dec. 27th, 2004 09:37 pm (UTC)
that's one of my many roles... partner, confidant, pack mule with the extra carryon bag =P
Dec. 27th, 2004 09:39 pm (UTC)
I must say I'm quite familiar with said roles ;-)
Dec. 27th, 2004 10:27 pm (UTC)
Thank God for spell check
Thermometer it is - they're just indispensable.
Dec. 27th, 2004 09:38 pm (UTC)
Cloves, mmmmm, cloves... Just one or two packets (with filter tips) would do me - I can pay you back when I see you. Don't go out of your way to get them though! I can live without them :-)

Looking forward to meeting you!
Dec. 27th, 2004 10:26 pm (UTC)
Oh my, everyone wants cloves! I'll have to put some in my purse as well, as if I were a real smoker!
Dec. 27th, 2004 10:30 pm (UTC)
We all want them because they are a nightmare to find over here, and when you do find them you need to sell a kidney in order to afford them!
Dec. 28th, 2004 12:15 am (UTC)
After considering the CD, I've decided to let it go for now. For one thing, the price is probably comparable to getting it from Amazon, if not a hair less. (Not that it isn't fun getting it from an English store, but oh well.) For another, what I usually do in these cases is wait till Amazon gets a used copy and hope it doesn't take too long.

*grumble* Stupid American record companies dropping Beautiful South...

Darn them and their ridiculous choices!

OOoh, I had a really good time when I went there in August! That looks like a real possibility!

I live in the Central District - in the city, a ten minute walk from downtown Seattle.
