Or How the best laid plans of Debbie and Myself often go wrong...
What a strange strange week I've had.
The Cardiff outing was terrible!
First, the friend of my friend I was supposed to meet that day couldn't come, so I had to spend the night before cheering up the best friend.
Second, it was chucking it down with rain all day. Not kidding. If you didn't have an umbrella up for like 5 minutes, you'd be drowned.
Thirdly, the trip there. Good god, the trip downhill. I went to go help out at the official last assembly/concert of the year, which was fun. The plan was to shoot off the stage, grab our bags and get out of there. But noooo, we got delayed because we had to sit through a poem. How hard is it to say 'Thank you all. I love you. Bye Bye'? I just did it in 8 words!
When we finally got out of school, we ran to the adjacent bus stop to catch a bus that didn't come. Then, we decided to ask my grandpa who lives 10 minutes away from the school. Not to be rude, I went to grab my phone to call them in advance. My phone had vanished! Only for it to be sandwiched in between my magazines! And of course, Grandpa had to be in the hospital that day.
So we ran to the next bus stop down the hill. And we thankfully managed to get the next bus into town, ringing Mandabutt desperately to buy our tickets, who did because she's awesome. We made it into town and sprinted towards the train station. Well, Debbie sprinted. I sort of jogged behind. (Note to self: Get a** on Wii Fit)
Finally, we did get there, it only dawned on us then that Techniquest was only an hour's walk away from the damn train station! So then we planned to go see Toy Story 3 alongside shopping in the new St. David's centre. The cinemas were too far away. Gah, the cinemas pi**ed me off so much!
We did however did spend quite a bit of time in the Disney shop which was amazing! Oh, the wall of plushies. You should have seen it blog-chan. Why I didn't take any pictures I don't know. I did however get this very cute Thumper plushie for my baby nephew Logan:
Cute huh? I thought so ^^
I also bought two mangas as well:
I haven't read them yet but I'm sure they'll be good ^^
So yeah. First trip to Cardiff. Not good.
Magazine work is going pretty well according to my editor boss, Beth. Which is cool. She decided to randomly surprise me with a text today. 'I'd like 5 new film or dvd releases before 7pm Wednesday' - I panicked. 5?! I only thought I was doing the one review for the first issue. Thankfully, she meant a maximum of 5 reviews. But she wants half a sheet of a4 per review which I could do easily. So, for the first issue I've chosen:
Alice in Wonderland, Inception, *sigh* Twilight: Eclipse and Toy Story 3
I thought I did pretty well picking films. It covers my target audience and a big selection of genres. But I really, REALLY, REALLY don't want to sit through Eclipse. From the reviews I've read, it sounds painful.
My mother's nabbed me for filling in for people in her Weight Watchers classes. Which is cool. I get paid £5 a class. Awesomesauce.
Royal Wonderland's finally starting to kick into gear :D Well, the brand has an identity at last. Mel, who's off adventuring in North Carolina and I have been having late, late night conversations (Silly timezones) and we agreed that's she'd have a go at making the mascot and I'll attempt a logo. I think it's really cute stuffs. How about you, blog-chan?
Here's my logo:
And Mel's mascot:
I believe we're calling her Emmy. For now, at least.
Go check out Mel's Deviantart here: grapefruittea.deviantart.com/
I miss her muchly. ):
Oh yes, one more thing.
I can't believe I missed the premiere! I had to see it today D: I'm such a dope.
Oh well, I really liked this :D It's not quite as TOTALLY AWESOME as the first one but hey, rule of sequels, ya?
The storyline is really clever and being the Whovian that I am, the time travelling made me squee.
Also, this musical made me fall even further in fangirlish lust with Lucius Malfoy who here, prances around like a pretty fairy princess :D No complaints. He is still one sexy biatch.
I might just have to double feature it with A Very Potter Musical tomorrow and my head will explode from TOTAL AWESOMENESS.
So, I guess I'll give you a few days to digest all that information.
See you soon blog-chan,
