Shepley Diary for 2012 )

Tl;dr: Great bands - Demon Barber Roadshow and The Albion Band especially good. White Rose have a new dance. I have a new top hat.

Pictures to follow when I've dealt with them.

There are times when Cardiff looks very like Melbourne

Parts of today were times like that )

Things I learned today of note for Torchwood writers:
As late as 1913, Roald Dahl Plass was a lock allowing fairly large ships entry to a wharf where Lloyd George Avenue is now.
When the docks were working, before the barrage, there was a beach outside the TI office entrance. It wouldn't have been very nice, though, and there were boats pulled up on it.
Mermaid Quay was built up with warehouses and merchant offices. The first million pound deal is believed to have been struck in one of the offices down there.
There were some really interesting ruins at Grey Friars that were only pulled down in 1977. The friary was converted into a mansion.

And oh look, I'm back to being exhausted by travel. I could barely think last night, let alone write a diary entry.

Here be the story of why I was so tired )

If you would like a postcard from Cardiff, I will need your address. PM me or something.

I have arrived in Cardiff, safe and sound and more than a little giddy. The story of today is under this rather attractive cut.

Rather attractive cut )

Tomorrow's plan )

There endeth the first day's inanity
galadriel1010: (Default)
What started as a slightly sore nose this morning has spread and intensified right across my sinuses. As usual.

And tomorrow there's snow forecast. Joy of joys. But I am going to go to the museum of sex.

By the way, I'm in New York. Yay!

Going to go die in a corner now.

Oh boy. What A Day.

But first...

It has been called to my attention that I was a jerk is the recent wank, and ignored something I should have not ignored. If you know what I'm apologising for, you know what I'm apologising for. If you don't, it doesn't need to be aired any further than it alredy has been. I was a jerk, I wasn't the only one, and I'm going to try to learn from it.

I've been having Thoughts about this since it started really, and I'm going to post them ocne I've found my happy place and can say it without, I hope, coming across as a vindictive, sarcastic, butthurt arse. That would be nice, wouldn't it? Hopefully the whole thing will be over, but I do feel I need to say what's in my head.

That may change when happy place is found, though.

Anyway, today. I:
Got my flight rearranged on me. )

Lost my key )

Missed the bus. )

Had to pay $100 in excess baggage fees )

Left my phone in a friend's room. )

Fell downstairs. )

Left my wallet behind in her room. )

Got very very very homesick. )

And that's about the saga up to now. I used GlobalGossip for a while on my ailing internet battery, then found somewhere that would charge Skylar whilst I used their internet, so here I am, typing on a strange Australian keyboard. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Current plans include seeing in the first dawn of the New Year at 5.47, finding my wallet and booking a really nice hotel room and sleeping a lot.

Home, ish )

And I think that that is where we leave this trip, as it's over. It's been awesome. I'll get some of my photos up soon.
