Eeek! Only one more full day left in London. How sad!!! In two days I'll be on a plane heading home. However, I will be watching Star Trek (as it's playing this month on Air Canada - wooo!!) to console myself. Right now I'm procrastinating about packing. Bad, I know. I have a feeling it's going to be an all-nighter tomorrow night!! Oh well. I can sleep when I'm dead, right??

The past few days have been really good. On Monday I went and met Emma for lunch near work, because it's convenient. We went to Nandos, yay unlimited drinks!! Then I made her take me to Madame Tussauds so I could pick up some boxes in case I needed them to ship things (which I don't think I do, so I lugged them around for nothing, but oh well) where I saw a few people. Then the annoying manager came and ruined it. but it provided us some good gossip! Then we went to Leicester Square to see about a theatre ticket for me. I had gotten a good email offer from Avenue Q, a top-priced ticket and free program for £25 and the seats offered for Jersey Boys that evening (by the time I got there) weren't great, so I went to see Avenue Q one last time. It was awesome as usual! It was my 8th time I believe. And I still love it! Yesterday I went and met Jen for lunch. I bought one last set of books (3 for 2) at Waterstones, found a feather hair piece thing for Amanda's wedding (yay!) and then we had burritos for lunch. Yum! I then convinced Jen to come with me to the Natural History Museum, but the queues are huge, so we went to the Science Museum instead. It was fun! Then I went and saw her flat and then went home. Today I met Joanna and Dan one last time and we went out for lunch in Golders Green (the Jewish area of London). We went to Blooms which is this Jewish deli that has been there forever. It was okay. It wasn't bad, but it was expensive and it wasn't the best I ever had. I told them they need to come visit me in Toronto and I'd take them to Centre Street Deli for some delicious food! It was great seeing them one last time. Then I went to Leicester Square to pick up my theatre ticket for tomorrow night. I'm seeing Jersey Boys again. I know, I should see something I haven't seen before. But I loved it so much, and this time I get to see Ryan Molloy!! Then I went to this theatre shop and bought Ryan Molloy's cd which just came out on Monday. It's him singing Frankie Valli songs. I'm listening to it now, it's great! Tonight I'm meeting up with work people one last time. One last trip to the Met Bar. :(

Tomorrow I'm going to Madame Tussauds so I can see Emma in costume, hopefully I can see a couple of people to say goodbye too. Then I have to PACK. Then Jersey Boys at night! Then one last Hagen Daas ice cream and seeing Piccadilly Circus and then I assume I'll be packing all night. Then Friday I leave. :( Yikes! But then I'll get to see my family and friends (who thankfully have not forgotten me! I've already made plans!) so I guess it's good. I sure am going to miss it here though. And who knows when I'm going to get to come back. Hopefully sooner rather than later. At least I'll have free places to stay when I come back now! Lol!

Also, friending memes are the new greatest thing ever. Especially if they're Kirk/McCoy ones. Because let's face it, they're totally my new otp and I pretty much read only them. I need new icons. I digress. *waves* Welcome new friends!! I should make this journal more fandom-y. I think we need to plan first a Kirk/McCoy meet up, and then a Star Trek con in the vibe of Prophecy. Yes?? No?? My vote is yes!

I paid a fortune and saw James Bond today at the Odeon is Leicester Square. Suffice to say, it was AMAZING!! As I knew it would be. I loved all the action!! I was on the edge of my seat for almost the entire film!! Definitely worth $30!! was £14.50 for my seat. But it was a huge theatre (it's where they do all the premieres) and I had a pretty good seat. On the balcony, in the centre. No Daniel Craig in little swim trunks, but he was still dead sexy!!

And, it doesn't come out in Canad and the US for another two weeks (on Nov 14th) so it also felt good that I was seeing it before anyone else I know! I never see things first, so this was my chance!

Now I want to see it again!! Hopfully it will be out on dvd by the time I'm home for a visit in April, so I can buy it and then watch it on my laptop!

marciadanielle: (London)
Omg, I have ONE day left at home before I get on a plane and travel to London, England to live and work for the next year. I'm not totally freaked out, because it still hasn't sunk in yet what I'm doing. Maybe it will when I get on the plane. I haven't really cried either, which kind of surprises me. I said goodbye to my sister tonight. It was sad, but not enough to make me cry. Even saying goodbye to Amanda and Erin didn't make me cry. Hmmm, maybe I'm just a cold-hearted person?! Nah. but I have trouble crying at real-life events. Movies, books, fan fiction, no problem. I cry like there's no tomorrow. But real-life?? I just don't. I dunno...

Anyways, so I've been doing lots this past week. Lots of people to see! Lol! Not really, but I have seen everyone I wanted to see and I've had fun doing it! I should move away more often, people have been treating me so well this past week!! Lol!

On Friday I went out for lunch with Faye. We went to the mall. We ate at A&W and then walked around. We saw Michelle Rowen (one of my favourite authors!) in Zellers but I was too shy to go up to her. I should have. Because I think it would have made her excited to be recognized, but I didn't. Oh well. I still saw her!! On Friday night, I was picked up by Philina and Steve and we headed downtown for my goodbye get together (my kind of party!) Amanda, Jen, and Jessie came out and we went for dinner. We were supposed to be going to the Bier Markt, but there was a really long wait so we went next door to the Scotland Yard and ate dinner there. It was okay. Good company anyways! I then (after two beers and I was perhaps a bit tipsy) decided I wanted to go to Jack Astors for some raspberry twisters and apple pie. I dunno why I didn't think of going there for dinner too. Oh well. So we walked in the cold to Jacks. I had two "jack it up" (ie. double the alcohol) raspberry twisters and then I shared apple pie and chocolate cake with Philina and Steve. It was really fun! Amanda bought my food and drinks at Scotland Yard, and Phil and Steve bought my drinks and dessert at Jack Astors. Which was really nice of everyone!

On Saturday I met Erin and Philina for lunch at Astoria's, a Greek restaurant we all love. We went to the Mississauga one because it's much easier to get to then the Danforth. So, we had a good lunch. Erin bought my lunch. We then went to Cloverdale mall for some cookies and Winners. Again, it was a lot of fun. Erin had to go to work, so we went our separate ways. I met Suzie for tea at Starbucks (Suzie treated me but by this point I wasn't feeling too well - I managed to catch a cold on Friday, grrrr....I'm almost better now though). We chatted lots. Eventually I had to go though. I had lots of laundry to do!

Sunday I did more laundry and bummed around. I didn't do as much as I should have. Today I was organizing all my clothes. Tomorrow I have to pack it all. I probably have too much to do tomorrow. I wish I wasn't such a procrastinator. Oh well.

Tonight I went out with my parents, sister, brother-in-law and my nephew. We went to the Keg, yum!! It was so good! And the waiter gave me a free dessert too! Before we got there, they has asked my sister if we were celebrating any kind of occasion, and she told him I was moving away, so I got free dessert! We got a huge slice of Billy Miner Pie which we all shared. We then went back to my sister's for some wine and Skor squares which she had made for me. Even though I was stuffed, I managed to eat two little ones!! I lent my sister my Wii while I'm gone, so we set it up and played some tennis and bowling. I taught my mom how to bowl, and she wasn't too horrible at it! My sister gave me a webcam as a going away gift! She got one too. So now she can hold up my nephew to the computer and I can still see him! And he can see me too. Yay! She also packed me four Skor squares to take with me. Phil had given me some M&Ms too to take with me. So I can eat candy all the way to London!

Alright, it's late and I want to go to bed. One last sleep in my own bed! Goodnight!

I'm slowly, but surely, tagging every entry on my livejournal. It's going to take me 6 years. Omg.
