Back from London

It was an utterly fantastic week, but I am glad to be back in my own house, and to cuddle my cats again.  I crammed as many sights as possible into seven days, and still didn't get to everything that interested me.  The good news is that I will be going back.  I got bumped from my originally scheduled return flight because of severe overbooking.  Virgin Atlantic put me up in a nice hotel overnight, gave me vouchers for three meals, and gave me a guaranteed seat on the following night's flight.  Also, they gave me a voucher good for a free round-trip ticket.  So, I'm thinking maybe next spring...

In addition to more traditional tourist attractions, I saw John Barrowman in La Cage Aux Folles -- twice.  It was wonderful, fantastic, incredible.  I know that "I am what I am" is his theme song, but I'd never heard him sing it before.  Wow.  The man sings with incredible passion and intensity.  I dropped by a music shop a few nights later and bought two of his CDs,  I also bought his new autobiography, which doesn't come out in the U.S. for another month.  I haven't read it yet, but I did read his first book, Anything Goes, on my Kindle during this trip.

Maybe on my next trip I'll plan to visit Cardiff as well...

Welcome back! Glad you had a good trip!

by the way, if you need a hookup on books released in the UK but not here (like all Who materias), check out bookdepository.com. Free shipping, too. (And usually a bit cheaper than amazon)

Welcome back! Oooo, that's right -- I've gotta get that hardcopy formatted to send to you . . . Been distracted with the Great Editrx Cookbook and the Support Stacie "Home-made for the Holidays" auction. ;)

Wow, you did well out of Virgin! If you don't need to be back on a particular day, getting bumped isn't bad at all :)

Glad you had such a great time - and welcome back!
