Rocky - lips

Ho-Hum...

Another slow day at work today. Apologies in advance if this ends up being a bit rambling...

Paul was working on Saturday, so I used the time alone to do something productive, which equated to cleaning the kitchen and bathroom - although not the floors. I managed to get the weird crud off the bath near the plug / taps area - it came off surprisingly easily, actually. The enamel is in bad condition so foam and stuff ends up clinging to the surface, meaning it was worse than it looked...

Also found a home for the vast collection of biscuit tins I've accumulated from work, finally.

I've also booked tickets to see Sunset Boulevard in London, which is mine and Paul's birthday present to Eni. Row D in the stalls. :) Vicky had sent me a promo-code for a discount (£50 tickets for £25) but it didn't actually work, which seems to be because none of the tickets actually cost £50... Anyway, at full price they still cheaper than equivalent seats for Sound of Music...

I also discovered that I can book the B&B near Kings Cross - where we all stayed in January before / after the Eurostar - from their website, though I can only book a minimum 2-day stay, so we'll have to go up on the Friday and leave on Sunday. Which, actually, probably works out better, as it doesn't mean we'll be rushing on the Saturday to get into the city, get changed, etc... Since my birthday trip in October was somewhat done on a budget (cheap seats and the matinee, so no overnight stay), this will feel more like a proper theatre trip, at least...

Still. YAY SUNSET!

We're going on 28th February. Oddly enough, when Sweet, Eve, Lloyd and I saw the final night of the UK tour, that was on 28th September... :)

Sunday was nothing much, really. Paul was meant to go out and play badminton but Drew was ill, so it was cancelled. We invited Lisa up for Sunday lunch and then inflicted Rocky Horror Picture Show on her, as she'd never seen it (!) Another one for the ranks when it tours again, anyway... I might make a RH-themed layout, actually... at the very least, one of the shots inspired me to make an icon...

I told you it would be rambling. ;)

In other fandom stuff, I have one episode of season 5 of X-Files to get through, and then the first movie. I had a bit of hiatus over Christmas but started up again this week. I am now just attempting to organise my time in order to watch the film through in one go...

Right, I'm going to post this one now before it gets any longer...
