Thursday:

Thursday was actually rather short. I met [livejournal.com profile] ankareeda at the airport and we flew to London together. We got off the plane, got onto a bus, got off the bus, got onto a taxi (after we figured out that you can just wave at them and they stop. *gasp* Yes, we did not know that until Andy actually tried it.) and checked in to the hostel. Which was a little creepy, but otherwise quite okay. 6 bed dorm, bunk beds. It was fun. All part of the adventure. :)

Looks a bit like a prison cell, no? Heh. It was cheap. And it was cleaner than it looks in those pictures.

Friday:

We were supposed to meet up with the others at four PM in front of Earl’s Court, so Andy and I went off exploring London on our own first.

Street in front of the hostel. Isn't it all English and pretty?

Hyde Park. Our hostel was right next to it.

England has Starbucks! I love it so!

Those buses are so pretty. We actually had to use them on our last day in London because the underground people were on strike. I'll come to that in a later post.

We had to figure out how the underground actually works, but we did get Day Tickets in the end and went off to finally meet the rest of the Group of Awesome. When we got to Earl’s Court they were just closing off the street in front, so we contacted [livejournal.com profile] calleigh_j, who had [livejournal.com profile] graveyard_cat and [livejournal.com profile] sazzat with her and we met them…somewhere. I forget. I just remember that it was kind of exciting, and definitely fun, because we actually found the Tardis!

From left to right: Andy ([livejournal.com profile] ankareeda), me ([livejournal.com profile] alianne), Ellie ([livejournal.com profile] calleigh_j), Sarah ([livejournal.com profile] sazzat).

We ran into Tinie ([livejournal.com profile] cnnjunky) and Speckles ([livejournal.com profile] speckleberry) in front of Earl’s Court Station right after that and from then on it was a general ‘meet people you know but have never met’. Which was awesome. We were even organized enough to actually get food.

This was not taken on Friday. I forget when it was. But it's Speckles and me. :)

A bit blurry, but I love it. This was in the evening when we went out for food. It was fun.

That was basically the first day. More to follow soon, I'm still sorting through pictures. I took ~173, so the actual sorting may take a while. :P

WE FOUND THE TARDIS! Unfortunately, the doctor was nowhere in sight. :P Otherwise we would probably have started fighting about who would get to be the next companion. *g*

Erm, exactly where was your hostel?

I think we must have been staying just a few streets away from each other as we were on Queensbrough Way near Hyde Park.

Love your icon I must say!

Haha, I just had a look at the map...you were right on the next street! Ours was on Inverness Terrace. :P

Thanks. I just HAD to have an Andee icon. Heh.

I'm baaaack! But it's so quiet and lonely here. If I didn't have to work on Friday I'd go visit my family or something.

It was awesome, even though Torri canceled. She was filming CSI and missed her flight, but we got to meet the WraithQueen Andee Frizzell who is lovely. We all fangirl HER now. *g*

More soon.

How's it going in your part of the world? Exams over?

Torri's gonna be on CSI? Really? I mean, seriously? *has incredibly embarrassing fangirl squee*

Andy Frizzell, love that name!

I HAVE NO MORE EXAMS!!!! Monday was my last. And already bored out of my mind!

She's gonna be on some CSI episode, yeah. Don't know which CSI, though. Don't care, don't watch it. (Will be watching that episode, though.)

Andee Frizzell is awesome. I think I've said that a lot the last few days. *g*

How did the exam go?

I do watch it! But hope she's not gonna be in CSI Miami, though... that one's seen better days and Horatio's starting to bug me

Dunno how it went. Was rather hard and I thought I knew everything so well. Pff, we'll see. Can't do anything about it now, can't I?

We met you on some street near Earl's Court. I'm sure I could find it on a map, but I have no idea what it was actually called.

The picspam is so pretty! Can't wait to see the rest of your many, many pics.

Right, I think I remember. What it looked like, not what it was called. It's not that important anyway, the 'meeting' part is the important thing. :)

I'm still sorting through them, some of them are very blurry, so it'll be less pictures in the end, but probably still a lot. Mot of my Andee pictures are not very good, because she kept walking (or jumping) out of the pictures, so I'm gonna have to steal those from everyone else. :P

I've got a few decent Andee ones, though a lot of them have her missing an arm or hand or something because she was moving, or pulling a face during a story. But I'll post a bunch of them when I do my Andee talk post.

Oh, that's great. I already stole a few from Hannah's post, but I need moooore!! :D

She was moving a lot, wasn't she? Moving a lot and talking a lot.

The underground is over complicated. Everytime i've been to London i've almost gotten the wrong pass. *headesk*

The underground confuses me. Thank god there were so many of us, so I could always just follow people. I would have got lost on my own, I guess. Heh.

Finding a blue police public call box on a random London street was definitely a fangirl moment I won't forget any time soon. It looked kind of small, but - we all know it's bigger on the inside. :P

I love my pictures. My camera wouldn't let me have them at first and pretended I hadn't taken any, which made me kind of flail-y for a moment there, but I managed to find them and save them. Which is good. :)

YAY for more pics! The picture with the Tardis is so cool! Your room does look a bit small but hopefully it was an affordable price for the room. XD

The room was small, and the last two nights we had roommates, but it was okay. We only got there late at night, went straight to sleep, and headed out the next morning again really early. (Next time I'm staying at a hotel, though. *g*)
