Linzi is just dirty, that's all................ hee heeeeee.

Must get my arse in gear and put photos up.


Ahaha! You are just as wrong as Linzi! :P

And here is Kate in Winterbornes. Which will mean nothing to anyone who wasn't there... (but don't let us stop you re-watching the videos to try and work out what we're referring to... .;) )

More random memories from the weekend:

Taking the piss out of Mark's Bella Pok accent. Bex in the operating theatre - "How ghoulish!" Me in bizarre positions on the sofa - "Charlie's very flexible!" "She's deformed like I was!" WALL OF MONG! "Why is that lady wearing a bustle?" "I'm going to tell my grandchildren about this when I get home!" People at work thinking I'd actually cut my hair off. Kate stopping cars with her cane. "For a shilling I'll swallow, sir!" Bex getting a REAL buttonhole in the pub. "We are your husbands, and we've come into your... *ahem*" ;) Gail looking terrified at our husband discussion. Jiffy bags full of leaves. "I'm having imaginary tenting!" Waking up with muscles hurting from laughing as if I'd done twelfty million sit ups... The best weekend EVER!!! Love you all! :D

Oh, and here's a couple of pictures from Sunday:

Kate goes all Matrix on us.

Kate and Tracy fight like girls. :P

Brilliant photos! I love all your costumes, and that programme is very good indeed! :)

I saw a lonely mitten in town the other day. It was a tiny one though. Maybe Anne really had a baby. :shock:

Tinkerbell, London is very much not scary. I promise!

Amy, I will happily be your tour guide if you ever get over here to do the tour... :D

Haha, I just love the fact that for the first time ever I work in a place where they are excited that I am a mentalist, and people who aren't working come in especially to take photos!! Have been pestering them today for the pictures... Plus the ones of me unscrewing the skeleton case like the most mental bodysnatcher around! *giggles* Oh, and today we took some good photos of me doing a Wild West Shoot-Out with a drill. Heheh. :D

I totally understand you being nervous having never been to London, Tink, but just go with a friend, and even if they've never been before, it'll be less scary with the two of you. The tube is the easiest transport system in the country, which makes London less scary than visiting other cities you've never been to. It really won't take long before you feel like an old hand at it! (back me up, Bex - currently living in the Big Smoke...! ;) )

All the pictures are great that have been so far.

I will have to try and do the Spaced pub some time in the New Year.

Hee hee wonder what late night conversation we could end up randomly having on Friday ;)

'Tis a lovely pub. I think someone asked where it was? It's in Salusbury Road, Queen's Park - which is the road Queen's Park station is on, so pretty easy to get to. I like it. Will happily go back there again if you want some company, Chez! If we go at a quieter time, maybe we can do more posing... :D

Sounds cool. Yeah i'll bare that in mind, but at the minute with christmas round the corner i really should concentrate, after Friday, on finishing off christmas shopping.

New Year sometime i'll come up and we can do spaced poses *dances about*

Indeed!! I'm the one that is going to end up with a weird reputation, seeing as all cryptic references seem to be about me! Kate... is there anything you would like me to share with the rest of the group? ;)

"For a shilling I'll swallow, sir!"


Here's the photo that goes with that quote:

Me too! I still hurt a bit. All of the random bits you just posted made me laugh. Another random thing was when we found a chair on wheels (a wheelchair, you might say...) and all started shouting TIMMMMAAY! :lol:

You all look SUPER cool............ Tara was only a little bit right about me probably fancying the ones dressed as boys. *makes eyes at Bex*

Wish I could've been there. Suppose I should be grateful that I wasn't sat in cursing the fact that I couldn't afford to go, and managed a free trip to Sheffield instead, but am still gutted. Can't believe you all had so much fun without me!! :shock:


:wink:

Looking forward to laughing until I pee the next time I see you guys. Did you go and look at the Isaac Greatorex picture in the National Portrait Gallery?? You probably would've been chucked out for giggling though. :twisted:

Feck it, I'm just going to pop on a bustle and a corset and sit by my lonesome in my cozy little living room. :(
