Just a tiny picture..  
..from my recent London trip.

Immaginvfe 165

Random thoughts: FUN! Sherlock/Doctor Who shopping, Covent Garden, The City, Baker Street, Frankenstein at the Odeon, Westminster, The British Museum, South Bank, North Gower Street (Sherlock and Giuseppe Mazzini share the same flat LOL) first time in an english pub, Hyde Park, Antigone at the National Theatre, Christopher Eccleston at the stage door etc..
Current Mood: nostalgicnostalgic

Jealousssssss!!! :D Sounds like you had a great time and I hope Antigone & meeting Chris was amazing :D

It was amazing and... awkward.. between Christopher and me there's a 30cm difference, so he had to lean over A LOT, but '9' was nice, while he was leaning over I said to him: 'I'm short!' ç_ç and he replyed: 'I would never say that!'
I will never post the picture because I look so bad, I was so tired and I should stop to eat junk food and eat properly sigh.

haha you're really that short? Can't really see it in the picture (which is amazing btw :D) Awww that's adorable though, that he said that!! <3 So nice too for him to come out :D Play was really good too then I take it? :D

I recognise what you're saying there.. But yay for getting a pic with him though :D

Yep, I am that short 1.53cm, Christopher is 1.83cm.

Antigone was really good, but not as good as Frankenstein, well they are 2 different plays I know, but after Frankenstein I was OMG!ADJSFDKJFHKDJSBFJS on cloud 9, after Antigone I was really really happy. Maybe it's for the best, because last year I was so depressed, we (off course) don't have anything like british theatre and NTL is not an option for most of South Europe.

Ah yes. You are a bit shot. But for Dutchies everything is short apparently ;)

Right yes, I totally hear you there. I had the same when I saw Tennant & Tate Much Ado. I was so happy afterwards, but not like I was after Frankenstein. I don't think anything can ever top that experience :D But I'm so glad you really enjoyed it thoug :D

Same here. We don't have theatre like that either. We do have theatre, but it's quite elitist and there's a lot going on in the west of the country where I can't just go.

I could not imagining going to the theatre here wearing a t shirt and sneakers! XD
Most of the theatre is opera and the other plays.. I don't know.. it's not like I look for news about them, but I don't see nothing *that good* or innovate, I prefer to save money for other stuff. Also, there are fine theatrical thespians, but some actors do theatre just because there's no room for them on television OR they are so huge on tv, so they think to be good enough for a musical on stage.

By the way NTL is coming to Italy! At the moment just Frankenstein, I'm so happy! ^__^

Ah of course, a lot of opera! We hardly have operas here. It is mostly plays, adapted from English, but it's not really where I go to, you know? I don't know. There's a lot of good actors in it and a lot of it does appeal to me, but for some reason I never go :S

Ooh that is awesome!!!!! :D So you're able to see it again in the cinema? :D

Maybe being an 'anglophile' is a bit of a curse, I can't enjoy what I have here in my town.

Ooh that is awesome!!!!! :D So you're able to see it again in the cinema? :D
I hope so! Venues are still unknown. *fingers crossed*

I know EXACTLY what you mean!! A good friend keeps asking me to go to amateur theatre, but last year I had seen Much Ado About Nothing with Tennant and Tate & All's Well at the Globe before seeing Hamlet in amateur theatre here a few days later. I was bored to death :S Such bad timing. Years previously I had really enjoyed going, but that time I so didn't. But my friend was loving it, so I figured I had just been spoilt :S

Crossing my fingers it will be close to you!! :D

Bad timing indeed. XD I can't help myself, I'm picky about what I think it's fun. Sometimes this is a sad and lonely world for geeks like us. -__-
