It's weird how some things turn up in places you really never expect them to; just watched the first part of Andrew Roberts' documentary on Churchill (yes, I know it's late but I can't sleep) and instantly recognised the Embarkation piece from William Walton's score for Olivier's Henry V and then grinned like an idiot when I heard 'Dance ti thee Daddy' (which I first heard being sung by TA) being played in the background when Roberts' started talking about Churchill's rather bizarre interest in fish rations for the Royal Navy at the beginning of WWII.

Anyways back to watching...

EDIT: Watched the other 'side' of his documentary series on Hitler and there was this clip of the battle of Agincourt from Kenneth Branagh's Henry V. Talk about media cross-references....

Well, the countdown to seeing Stephen Fry and Andrew Roberts in the flesh in Hong Kong has started and hopefully if this typhoon/thunderstorm dies down, I should be able to see them in about 24 hours...

I just hope that we'll be able to take pictures...not necessarily a picture of me with them but just pictures OF them are enough for me (oh, and yeah...maybe an autograph or two!)

STEPHEN FRY IS COMING TO HKU IN JULY!!!

Oh yes and did I mention that my favourite historian Andrew Roberts will be also there on the same stage on the same day?!

*squees like crazy*

But why, oh WHY did it have to be held on a freaking Saturday of all days when that's the day that I have to go to work?

Anyways, screw that...and screw the fact that the event is already fully registered and that I'm on a waiting list...I am going to go and see them no matter what!
