I have excitable news which makes me do a little flail-arms and bouncy-in-my-seat-dance.
Some of you I might have blabbed this to already... but most people won't know a damned thing..
Nichelle is coming to visit meeeee!! *cue excited-in-seat-flaily-dance*
yeesss the wonderful splendiferous charligal-stock is coming to the UK!! WHICH IS AWESOME!! and if we can stop pratting around for some time we should have memorycards teeeeeeming with stock for you guys. We have some fucking awesome shoots planned.
I have to dust off my sewing machine and get cracking. but it will be AMAZING. Seriously you guys will love the main one we have planned. But are we telling you what we have planned? NOOOO :evillaugh:
I will say a couple of things: wet, trampoline, frzzzmmmm!!

And also... FNAAAAAAAAAARGHSTFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:eager::eager::eager::eager::eager::eager::eager::eager::eager:
:excited::excited::excited::excited::excited::excited::excited:


I managed to wrangle free accomodation for London aswell. which soooo helps because London is a stupid place full of stupid people with too much money XD which I don't have!
Apart from the couple of Deviants who I know who live there... but it's still to expensive. :P and I always seem to find the snobbish tosser who takes offence to my northern accent. I'm very good at finding wankers and crazy people ;) apparently Nichelle is too. so we might have some amusing stories of the British wildlife to tell you :P and by wildlife i mean the crazies and the drunks XD


In other news....
... I have a mysterious real life valentine... 0-o must have dropped by the house at night or something... cause the roses and chocolates weren't there when I got home from work last night.. 0-o and it's definately not Tim... and I'm making a habit of staring suspicously at the two bunches of roses.. 0-o There was no address neither so it's definately someone who knows where I live.. paranooooiaaa
I did get a couple of those cards via DeviantArt aswell.. and I'm terrible at saying thanks for that kind. I was torn between my usual manners and clambering up on my high horse screaming at the top of my lungs and refusing to come down. (I really don't like commercial-bullshit-and-obligation-day.)

I also bought a chess set in Portugal. since my old one has had three black pawns, a black rook and a black knight missing for yeeears (i used to love playing chess. I was a geek-child and i used to be in the school's chess club :bucktooth: LOVE ME!) but i was gutted. cause i watched the shopguy count out the fucking pieces to make sure none were missing.. and when I tried to set it up to have a play, what do i find? I'm missing a fucking black pawn -__- it's made out of a dark wood, so I'm going to ransack my Grandad's odl shed before we sell the house and find some dark wood and make my own damned piece. it's a good job that my Grandad was such a hoarder.

I am also working on my art trades :D i am excited still! I know what I'm drawing. there was an odd number so I ended up with two.
I know some of you want to add your usernames in cause you've been asking Erin.. you know what? I think I get too many crazy messages on here to want to do that XD i mean i recently had to report someone who is now banned from the community. and when I go to the trouble of doing that they went waaay over the line. this guy was so far from the line i dont think he'd even heard of it.
BUT ANYWAY.
I'm looking forward to getting these two finished and posted. XD I'll try not to do my usual mean trick which involves a hell of alot of sellotape XD

I've been through my holiday pics.. some of them should be alright as stock. so i'll upload those at some point soon
www.facebook.com/media/set/?se… for the nosy who wanted to see the snapshots.

Rambling is fun. But I shall shut up now XD Even though I'm sure I missed something important...

i knoooow. but its only free on weekends.. so we only get to stay there two nights, and get one full day in London.. since Nichelle's flight gets in at 8.30pm on sat night. i might insist on dragging her to the pub or some such nonsense that night. im sure alcohol is the true cure for jetlag XD

going to visit London in April too. Good thing that you managed to find free accomodation. London hotels are so expensive and so shitty! why can't they have good hotels at reasonable prizes? Last time I went to London the hotel room was claustrophobic, and so much talking about big english breakfasts, but I had the worse breakfasts of my life in that hotel (and I'm spanish and we don't eat much for breakfast, so it has to be a very shitty breakfast for a spanish person not to like it). For the same prize you can have an enormous room at a hotel in Egypt that looks more like a palace than a hotel. I know it, I've been there.

Tasastock Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
yeah i knooow. the secret is to book like, way in advance. which unfortunately only works if you know you're going there a million years in the future and you're highly organised. which i never am XD
but my mum's friend's husband works down in London.. and he has a flat down there for weekdays, which is empty at the weekends when he goes home to his family. and my mum asked if we could borrow the flat. obviously its restricted to weekends. but it's apparently a nice flat and its right on Fleet Street right on the enbankment or something.

uugh english breakfasts are nasty. i don't like them. never have done. too much stodge and too greasy. hotel breakfasts usually leave something to be desired anyway..

oh hell yeah, i loved the hotel in Egypt. it was brilliant.

EmberRoseArt Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2012
I booked my hotel room in October. It is still expensive xD but I think I have found something a bit better than the last time.
So, you'll only be there for a couple of days? still, a good flat is better than any small hotel room, even if just for a couple of days. Fleet Street? Where Snweeney Todd, the evil barber lived? xD

neither do I, but I was expecting something better than cheap milk (they didn't even have skim milk, which I always drink) and cheap cereals. I would have expected a bit more variety.

I almost wanted to stay there for the rest of my life, lol

Tasastock Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
uuh yeah even afew months in advance is baad
we were lucky when =PirateLotus-Stock came to visit. we found a hotel for 78 for two nights total (so 39 eaach fi my math is working at this time of the morning :p) right in the centre of London. but we did book that a year and a half in advance. and it was a room for three aswell, cause at that point we didnt know what =RaeyenIrael-Stock was doing..)
umm yeeeah i think so :P im sure it used to be where all the newspapers were aswell? or something? im not entirely sure because i don't like London.. so i don't pay that much attention XD i know i like Camden Market (by the way, you need to go there :P and if you go out of Camden Town station, turn left, and when you reach the end of the road, turn left (you should be able to see it by then, you'll need to cross over) there is an awesome restaurant there. its an all you can eat korean and thai vegetarian buffet. i mean im veggie so i love the fact that I can go up and everything is soy and theres no fear of cross-contamnination, but i've eaten there with friends who aren't veggie and they lvoed the food there too. and its not expensive either. you can be a piggy.
plus Camden itself is awesome. :P

whenabouts in April are you going? XD

skimmed milk or semi skimmed? i always drink semi skimmed.. but they shoudl have had it. geez that hotel sounds craaaaap. 0_0

oh hell yeah.. though Egypt does fall down on alcohol, obviously cause they don't drink.. the booze there (at least in the hotel we were staying in) left alot to be desired.
i think the nicest drink i had there was when the waiter was hitting on me, this guy was so bold he even asked Tim on tips on how to pick me up :P and he made me this awesome wine-based cocktail which tasted lovely. XD
but the rum was awful. everything else was brilliant though

EmberRoseArt Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2012
one year and a half! wow, that's a lot in advance. many things can happen in one year and a half.
Well, I liked the visit to london because it's very different from my home, but I wouldn't want to stay there for too long. Oh yes, Camdem is awesome and I will make sure to visit again. Thanks for the tip about the restaurant, I think I will give it a try =) There are many crappy places to eat there, and some good a bit difficult to find ones.
If I remember right, I'll be there from the 8th to the 15th of April. I'm going with my bro, and we don't spend all week at London. We also take the train to other places.

I had to go on a diet years ago, and could only drink skimmed milk, and I never went back to normal milk. It tastes to sweet for me now xD

Well, since I'm not much of a drinker, that didn't actually bother me. I was there on a cultural visit, but it didn't occur to me to go out at night (wouldn't have been a good idea). Haha, yes, I had a few hitting on me too, and a very serious marriage proposal xD (and another serious sex proposal too) but people over there were all so nice to me. Well, I'm not much of a drinker, but I did love the food there! lunch at the osasis was great!

yeah i know they can... but Erin had already booked the flights, and although we didn't know about whether or not Kat was coming, 78 for two nights in the centre of London split between two people is an amazing price, it was originally intended to be split between three people but that fell through... still good though.

that sounds cool. yeah me and Nichelle won't be spending long in London. I'm taking her up north where all the fun is had XD
freaky, you'll be leaving we'll be arriving. she gets in on the 14th April. but it's a later flight so i'm trying to get in touch with my friend to see if i can bum spending an afternoon with her. that way i'm not heading into London for 7pm or something.. i dunno. havent decided what i'm doing yet, but i was originally planning on being there a little earlier than necessary to dump my bags and stuff at the flat we're staying in. i hated waiting for Erin at the airport with a giant bag filled with crap last time XD

yeah difficult to find cheaper places to eat that arent rubbish. -__-

ive never had whole milk. well, i have, my mum always bought semi skimmed and my grandma always used to buy whole.. which i never liked drinking on its own cause it was too.. i dunno.. didnt taste right.

ah sometimes its still nice to go out and get afew drinks and see what the scene is like. but i like my rum so.. *shrugs*
:lmao: I'm glad i'm not the only one who gets the serious marriage proposals from strangers!! that happened to me in Camden a few years back. creeeepy. XD
