i honestly think i just had the best weekend ever. i will write more about it when i have the time, as i really should go to sleep now as i have work super early in the morning. but it was just the best. dancing to crazy star trek and doctor who songs, meeting wonderful people, getting hugs, laughing so much, dressing up, having photos taking, dancing...so much dancing, meeting people i used to watch on telly when i was younger, the last 4 days have been wonderful. i feel happy. i hope you are all happy too.

I have just eaten banana custard. i wish it had been fish custard though.
currently watching firefly over and over. getting ready for Hallowhedon next week. my costumes are sorted, i am going as Sally from the nightmare before Christmas..and for the wild west party i am going as a Indian. and i am hopefully making a firefly t-shirt for the last party. i really need to start sorting bits and pieces out, and start packing.
i have been talking to a few fans going next weekend, and i am getting really excited now.
i have sparkly gold nails, and a giant smile on my face...it doesn't happen very often...but life feels right.

i really like taking photos of the sky. its something about the colours on either a wonderful or dark night. the way the light can change in just a few minutes. i guess life is a little like that too.
in other news, i am sure you have read on Lina's blog that shes coming to visit me in January. its official, she has brought her plane ticket! i am going to show her around London and other places, and then we are going to go to Paris..which should be so much fun. i cannot wait to meet her! Paris will be lovely, as i really want to go to some art galleries and get some macaroons, and maybe even go up the Eiffel Tower again. its pretty scary...but still awesome.
life feels like i am standing still at the moment. i have started questioning my life and what i want out of it. part of me wants to go with the flow, however, i do have a few ideas of things i feel i want/need to do.
other news, i am trying to come up with some ideas for Halloween costumes...and failing quite a lot. any ideas? i am going to a Joss Wheadon convention at Halloween, which is gonna be held in a hotel, so its a proper geek-fest-convention. i have never been to one like that before, so that should be an adventure.
also...i am obsessed with twitter. i can't help it. i may need help soon.

so, the weekend was awesome. like insane. got the train at 6.30am on Saturday. got to London just after 8. and then met my friends from Liverpool, Jessica and Victoria in the giant queue. i was surrounded by lots of dressed up people, lots of Amy pond's, the 10th doctor's, 11th doctors---dressed in cowboy hats and bow ties. once in, we ran to Evanna's desk and waited for her to appear. we were going to be the first, so that was gonna be cool. we were waiting there and Arthur darvill walked past...kinda 'eeked' out loud. when evanna turned up she was so lovely. we spoke to her for ages. she really seemed to want to listen and talk to me. she made me feel so special. she was just so warm and friendly. she signed my wand and a photo of herself. then later we met Arthur. i told him that i loved his bowler hat. he said thanks, however he was only wearing it due to the fact his hair was a mess. he then took his hat off and shook his hair in my face and said 'LOOK'. he signed an American doctor who comic i had got last week, which he was on front. he looked at it for a bit and was like, 'what is this?!?' he liked it very much. we then gave him an elephant hand puppet, and Matt smith has a badger, and Karen Gillan has a fox, he had to have an elephant, as 'he is the nose' haha. he liked it very much, and even remembered to bring it to our photo shoots to have it in the photo. i had an awesome Saturday, met lots of people, spoke to lots of fans, brought some cool little bits, went to the Harry Potter talk and the Doctor Who talk, and just had fun.Sunday morning i had to get up early again, as i went back. today was David tennant day. i really couldn't believe that morning today was the day i would finally meet David tennant, after all these years...watching Casanova, doctor who, everything...i really wasn't mentally prepared. so went with dad on the Sunday morning. got there, and everything seemed calm. although when it was photo shoot time, everyone went crazy. so many people who have never been to any of these events before really were not listening to anyone. i was in the queue with three people cosplaying as doctor who characters and a guy behind me. people keep asking us, is this the queue for David tennant photo shoot. we said yes and asked what number, keep in mind they were only calling numbers 1-100 tickets. and these people had 435, or like 698...we told them to come back later...but they would just stand there....it was really crazy. we just couldn't understand why they wouldn't listen. anyway, all the way in the queue we were talking about how weird this felt, finally being able to meet him. the queue was going so fast, and i realised i would only have a few seconds. but to be honest, anything would be enough. walking up to someone to like super love, in insane. i really don't think i will ever be able to explain it. people at work keep asking me, what was it like...but i never really know the right words. while i was watching other people in front of me go first, sometimes he smiled with his teeth, other times he had his mouth shut. he looked straight at me and said hello. he put his arm around me. i was thinking, please smile with your teeth...please. i looked out the corner of my eye...and he did. he was so lovely. if i had got his autograph i might of had a little more time with him...but i already have it a few times, and couldn't really afford it. i had such an awesome weekend. i still cant believe that i have finally met David. i thought i would meet him when he was old and grey. and that i met Evanna and Arthur, who were ever so lovely and funny. i missed doctor who...but i watched it when i got it. man, that was one weird episode. i do feel i need to watch it again. arrggh, hurry up Christmas...Saturday nights are going to be strange without it. back to normal everyday stuff now.
