Chicago - cell block tango

"I am not shafting Hal Coppone!"

Or so says composim, anyway...

Murder mystery party was quite fun, but there was a bit too much information in the player manuals to try and remember so we were constantly flipping back after being accused of stuff with "Um... hold on..."  Met some nice friends of Drew and much fun was had.  Photograph is here...

Today we slept in until 12.30. I was very very tired and still am and want to go back to sleep...  Paul has now gone out to play badminton with Drew and we're going shopping when he's back...  I should do a really long post for the Most Haunted community I joined on Thursday but I can't be bothered, so I'll do it tomorrow instead...

Under the cut is the musings on fandom that I wrote in my paper journal on  Thursday night, tidied up a bit...

So, there you go.  I think today I will work on making a prettypretty banner type thing for my Come Forward MH-novel thing, so I can give it a proper link when I do my uber-post on the new community.  It'll stop me falling asleep, at any rate...

This morning afternoon we've been looking around online to check the pricing for Warwick Castle and Dudley Castle, as we decided on a whim to visit one of them on Monday after lunch.  Originally I was thinking of Dudley Castle because we can get there on the 126 bus from town and you no longer have to go through the zoo to get to the castle... except there's still only the single admission price of a tenner, whicih seems a bit steep if you don't want to see the insane animals.  Warwick Castle is slightly pricier at £15.95, and we'd have to go on Tuesday instead to accommodate actually getting there and having enough time to see it before it closes - of course - at 5.00pm.  www.thetrainline.com is annoying because it won't let you check train prices without registering an account - I don't want to BUY them, stupid website - so I'm estimating that it would cost about £15 to get to Warwick on the train.  But it's probably cheaper than that on Chiltern since they only charge you £15 to go to London...

There doesn't seem to be a direct bus from the station to the castle, either, so it's a mile walk, but at least it'll be a pretty walk so that's okay.  This is when not being able to drive becomes a REAL pain in the arse.  Anyway, Chiltern apparently do a special entrance offer that (on investigation) costs the same as Centro's and saves you a grand total of 95p.  However I suspect that Chiltern charge less for the privilege of travelling than Centro do.  Since I can't check the ticket prices, I wouldn't know.  *eye roll*

I think we're set on going to Warwick Castle, anyway.  Which'll be nice.  Giving up on the tattoos idea because I don't know what I want and most of my custom stuff will cost twice as much as usual.

Everything's so expensive, these days.  *sigh*

Anyway.  Photoshop time.
