London, here I come!  

Yesterday evening, cavendish and I celebrated the 10th anniversary of our first encounter (i.e. real encounter, not just walking past each other on campus or accidentally taking the same literature classes. Imagine two students on a university field trip to Portsmouth, a small local museum, and such an intriguing conversation about the displayed items that, by the time the two students had finally found their way to the exit, almost everybody else had already left...)

And guess what this generous, inventive and perfectly insane person organized as an anniversary present: A four day mini-vacation in London including two tickets for Guys and Dolls, a musical currently starring Ewan McGregor! While I normally refrain from using onomatopoetic expressions in this LJ: Squeee! Ten times squeee! A squee so excited and cheerful that it carries from here to the other side of the channel!

(A side note for the Londoners on my f-list: Our traveling dates are: October, 1st - October, 4th. If you'd like to meet with us during these days, just drop a quick note.We'd be delighted to see you!)

Pretty...
Heya,

let me know when you find time... :)

Re: Pretty...
I think, the wisest thing would be to simply give you a ring once we've arrived, so we can discuss the details over the phone...
Much easier than e-mail ;-)

Looking forward to seeing you in person!

London? That is a nice surprise.

London? That is a nice surprise.

And the best thing: I had absolutely no idea it was coming. When I opened the envelope containing the tickets, the look on my face must have been priceless. I was totally stunned, happy, excited and touched... all at the very same moment!


Oh, and squeezing two LJ-replies into one: Glad you enjoyed the picture. I think, you're perfectly right about the red. Apart from the blue ink, it was one of the last things that I added, because I had this vague feeling that something important was lacking. Once I had added the colour, I was rather surprised by its impact.

So, lots of thanks for your comment :-)

>the look on my face must have been priceless.

Yes, it was. Really. (How I _love_ making surprises ;-)) )

But I am realy glad you liked this one :-)

Yaaaaay for London and "Guys and Dolls".
For what day do you have the tickets? Because Ewan's last show will be on October 3rd!
Cavendishcavendish on September 11th, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC)
Hi there :-)

Is that Oct, 3 included? Because this is when we are going.

And where did you read this? Because I read Dec. 3

Yup, including October 3rd. As far as I know the show on December 3rd is for charity purposes.
Enednovielenednoviel on September 11th, 2005 04:54 pm (UTC)
Hmmm... can't remember where I found the date. It's possible that he has extended his appearance in the meantime. Anyway, with October 3rd you are on the safe side anyway, so don't worry. ;)

I am quite relieved to hear this. Would have been a shame if it had been the 2nd of October :-)

If you want a more traditional approach, try:

"I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,
I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world."

>Imagine two students on a university field trip to Portsmouth, a small local museum, and such an intriguing conversation about the displayed items that, by the time the two students had finally found their way to the exit, almost everybody else had already left...)

Oh yes: "time it was and what a time it was ;-)). "

Nice thing is, though, that we are still having great times together (mostly), and put up great fights (sometimes ;-) ) but that we manage not to let live get boring ;-).

Thanks for this nice entry and also for ten great years :-)

F.

Ps.: funny: the spell checker knows neither squee nor yawp ;-))

Oh, I'd love to see you but that's mostly over a weekend and I can't do weekends at the moment :(

Have a great time anyway and I think I heard your squeeing from here *g*.
