...when I get insanely anal-retentive.

I'm honestly not proud of this, but I post it for reference's sake for you, Gentle Reader: this is about as crazily on-the-rails as I get.

In other news, I'm flying to London on the 29th of thisnext month for a fortnight's vacation, holy fucking shit, as an early birthday gift (nota bene: VERY early) from someone I've viewed as one of my closest friends for years. Obviously, I should view more people as damned close friends! Joking aside, I really do appreciate this gift, hugely. And not just because I grasp the financial cost.

We're also going to see Waiting For Godot- one of my favorite plays- at the Theater Royal Haymarket (which I've never been in), featuring Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Freaking Stewart.

I'm going to try to work in a few visits with people I know in the UK during that fortnight, given that hey: my host will have a job to carry out, and these people might be able to flex their schedule for a day or two.
  • I find that sort of linguistic reasearchy stuff fascinating.
    • I as well. But that's what it looks like when I stand someone down and say 'oh bitch please'. It needs to be on a linguistic basis, it needs to be on a contradiction to something I knew was true. I'll dig to the Nth degree to say 'yeah, you can make noises until heaven rings, but you're Still Wrong.'
  • many of which are well beneath oh-let's-say-Elrond's dignity, such as sickening cattle, hiding the salt cellar, or inflicting elfin-blow

    I can't imagine any universe in which you ought not to be proud of a comment that contains that sequence of words.
  • Funnily enough, I'm probably going to be down in London for the first week of June. Or most of it, at least. We haven't figured out when we're traveling and all, yet.
    • Well, I'll be in town and free for that juncture, assuming that your visit is not 'when colubra visits doroc_sabah', or when I spend a day or two with my ex and his husband who live in Richmond.

      Please do let me know what your schedule looks like, dear: I'd love to take a moment to rub noses RL.
      Second edit: you can contact me more privately @ colubra@livejournal.com
      Third edit: I'll be in town through June 1 at the VERY least.

      • Ah, see, that could be difficult. Because I'm probably not going to be there until the 2nd at least.
        • could be workable: I'm buggering off from London on the 13th. So what's on your agenda could be useful!
  • < jealous > Godot sounds awesome. < /jealous >
    • Thank you- I honestly would've envied lyricagent forever about seeing that shit without me also seeing it.

    • also, ampersandlt: (without spelling it out) will produce a left-wedge that doesn't react to HTML.
  • featuring Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Freaking Stewart

    Whoaaaaaa, man. I look forward to a full, or at least brief, report.
  • Waaay off teh topic

    chicafangs & I will be in Paris form 4.6 - 10.6, If you're in london & feel like CHunneling, let ms know.
    • Re: Waaay off teh topic

      We were actually considering Paris: I'll keep you two posted on our when, and will root for then-when.

      So I'm an idiot and confused June and July. I hope you guys have a wonderful time in Paris: I'll still be over here at that point, leaving for London on 29 Jun.

    It's like seeing God onstage. Oh, and God too.
  • Good to know, WRT elfin vs elven. Oh, and just to add to the fun, both adjectives are cool with the LJ spell check.

    With regards to London and Godot: I'll be sitting over here pretending not to be jealous.
  • One presumes no layover in the World Capitol, then.
    • Nope, Ah'm-a going non-stop, sadly.

      (and it seems appropriately ironic that the way of the universe is that I get this handled, and within 24 hours someone says to me 'so I'm pimping you for the community manager opening we have: you should get an offer within the week'.)
  • (no subject) -
    • Oh, as far as sound and consonant feel on the tongue, I'm with you: 'elfin' seems sort of stiff comparatively.
  • (shakes head) You sad, sad man. Where do you stand on 'elfy'?
    • It's slangy- but there's nothing wrong with slangy.
      The objection isn't that elven isn't a word, but that it doesn't mean what it's being used for.
  • My username feels like a comment on the elf-nerdity. (One of these days we should go in on group subscription to the OED online, btw.)

    That sounds like the most amazing Godot ever. Wow. Have a great time! Do you need any apartment-sitting/package-diverting or similar stuff from anyone local?
