Well, it's been a while since I've posted on LJ and what with work, fanfic writing and a surprising amount of stress, I'm not surprised that I haven't been on LJ that much. Anyways, I'm here now so that's definitely an improvement, methinks =D
A big day today...decided (and finally mustered up the courage after months of contemplation and hesitation) last week that I'd write to David Suchet and Hugh Fraser (a.k.a. Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings), thank them for their brilliant work on film and television and kinda ask them if they could be kind enough to grant my tiny request for their autographs. Therefore I had to rush down to the post office at Winsdor House in Causeway in the morning to send them off since Monday's the only day I'm free (and the post office is only open on Mondays to Saturdays). After a LOT of hassle with envelopes (my envelopes were waaay too small and had to buy a bigger one for Suchet's letter), finally slotted them into the 'Air' mail box at about 25 minutes past 12. I know I'm so immature to request their autographs...but OMG, they're Poirot and Hastings (who've been my obsessions over the past couple of months), for God's sake! And Fraser's also Wellington in the Sharpe
series...how I especially not
avoid writing to him seeing that he's the best Wellington ever? I do hope they don't think me idiotic and be kind enough to grant my little request. *sinks on knees praying fervently* Nothing to do now but wait... *twiddles thumbs*
Anyways, that wasn't really the most important thing to be done today...the highlight of the day was meeting enserric
today! Hurrah! We haven't met up in over a year so it was absolutely fantastic to spend some quality time together today. We didn't really do much but chat and walk around what seemed nearly the whole of Causeway which was nonetheless damn tiring...and have lunch, some afternoon tea/coffee and dinner. Sounds utterly unexciting but we didn't mind it one bit...and my goodness, it's great to hang out with someone who knows exactly who you are and what your various fads and eccentricities are...the accents we were constantly changing and mimicking (which include Irish, Scottish, Russian, Swedish, Indian, posh British, American) were definitely a reminder of the great times we had at SIS. We had a ridiculous amount of fun mocking the name of a rather unfortunately named sports goods store at Windsor House...and even went to Toys R Us and did all kinds of silly things like having mock sword fights with foam swords, tossing this rather revolting silicon worm like toy which looked like a germ blown up to monstrous proportions and etc. I don't remember having quite so much fun in one day in quite a long time...ah, how socially lacking I am it seems!
Overall a tiring but bloody brilliant day. =DDDD
