All in all it was quite a good weekend. A weekend of bad timing, admittedly (we missed the James Marsters signing, and the train problem, and various other minor things which caused irritation and occassionally panic) but wine (quite a lot of wine) and comic book writers and silliness made up for that. Saturday spent the day trying to block out the news of the election and with

[personal profile] azdaja_dafema taking photos in Richmond. Also met Jamie McKelvie and Mike Carey (comics writer and artist and comics writer, respectively) in my comics shop, and they signed things, which was cool. And [personal profile] azdaja_dafema managed to use up an entire role of film taking photos of pigeons, which should be useful for her exam. Evening was spent with James discussing writing and drinking very nice wine and then wine that was a definite comedown from the previous wine. Sunday went to Hertfordshire to meet Mark, went to Milton Keynes to Collectormania, which was underwhelming, and bought a Clockwork Orange poster and an underbust corset. The corset is faintly ridiculous, it has a few metal studs and lace and ribbons and two different colours of velvet. It is possibly my new favourite item of clothing so those of you who know me in real life will probably see it. Compared to it my black corset is a masterpiece of subtlety because it only has frills, and not that many of those. Then went back to Hertfordshire, temporarily broke Mark's Wii, and watched Brian Blessed on "Have I got News For You", before James arrived and we did the "Hercules in New York" commentary, and a commentary on two episodes of the 1996 Iron Man series. Monday I came back to London, was charged a ridiculous amount for a penalty fare because I'd got the wrong ticket by mistake, and watched Iron Man with my family. Iron Man is fun, especially the ending. Will squee over it another time.

 When I've got some actual writing done, I will write the TARDIS meme.

Had a nice weekend, albeit an exhausting one, which wasn't helped by the two 5.00am starts and my meds making me uber tired. Thursday flew to Dublin at an unearthly hour to go to my great aunt's 100th birthday. 'twas fun. Many relatives were met, they were all called John and Mary (and sometimes both, my family being weird and Catholic.) My great aunt is very well and enjoying being an hundred. Then came back to London on Saturday, again at an unearthly hour, having met assorted relatives on Friday, slept for a few hours, woke up, had the Talk of Much Doom and a small argument with my mother about going to Coventry, checked train times, went to Coventry and had a nice day and three quarters there. 

If people are around the weekend after this it is my birthday that Tuesday, and it might be fun to go for drinks or a meal. I'm committed to someone elses birthday party that Friday but Saturday or Sunday are free. Maybe revive a tradition (well, create a tradition) and have it around the south bank?
