Torchwood Mag and other related jazz  

§ I still don't have the Torchwood mag, which is somewhat depressing as I've subscribed to the damn thing and was kind of expecting to at least get it the day it was released :| I did check my confirmation email and I am due to get the "Start issue of "2 MAR 08" (Published on or around 21/02/08)" so, why have I still not got it when everyone else has!? ::stomps foot:: And it's got the uber shiny interview thingy with Gareth David-Lloyd as well!

Excuse me whilst I apply my pouty face to this display of petulance.

Alas. If it's not here tomorrow I may have to start kicking up a fuss investigating things. Ahem.

§ On slightly better, but not entirely exciting news, turns out that in April, Gareth is hosting an event down in Wales called "Sex, Wales and Anarchy". Described as being "A day of free speech, improv and action art + An evening of anarchy and blues". There's a (slightly but not much) more thorough explaination of events [ here ].

Now, as much as I love the boy, I really don't think it's my thing at all. Even the evening thing doesn't sound like it'd do much for me. Gareth singing for "Blue Gillespie" would be awesome for sure, but I wasn't all that keen on "Disgraceland" when I heard them at the Celtic Blues event back in November. And I've no idea what the other band(s) will sound like. So!

Besides, there's the Rift to look forward to in April, which Gareth will be playing at with his band "Breath of Blue Fire". And we get the awesome James Marsters too. And frankly, one trip a month is about all I can afford. In all seriousness. Well two, if we're including John Barrowman's touring here. Um.

...can't you just tell I'm trying to talk myself out of stalking this poor boy? XD

§ Onto the definitely really exciting news now! Collectormania G-Mex!! I've got my transport booked (uber thanks to conjunkie!) and shall be arriving at around 4pm Saturday 8th and leaving around 5pm Sunday 9th. So I'll just be staying the one night in Manchester, so wanted to know- who else is going to be around overnight? Anyone wanting to meet up for dinner/drinks/whatever?

Anyone looking for a place to stay? ;) I've found a hostle doing private rooms for around £18 a head. Am hoping I can find a roomie but would need to know asap. Any takers?

I've booked my ticket to the Sunday event, as well as photoshoot tickets with Anthony Head (omg I really couldn't resist!) and Naoko Mori (Squee! Thanks joulez217!! My ticket arrived today and is so very pretty!!). I'm also taking autograph requests for those of you poor flisters unable to attend, so just drop me a comment and we can haggle from there!!

§ Last point, I promise! My tardis_bigbang entry is due in t-minus 23days and counting. I've changed my fic idea again. Collective word count at this particular moment in time is 1456words. Someone gonne prod me with sharp objects? ::flails::

Whoot!! XD

The hostle is [ here ] Price is sitting at £15 a night at the moment. Only thing is they only have private rooms which sleep either one or two people at the most. I'm up for a room share if either you or one of your friends don't mind being split for sleeping?

Well I'm one of those people who'll sleep anywhere... and I mean ANYWHERE! So I'm up for a room share! I've txted both my friends to see if their ok with the hostel so I'll get back to you tonight or tomorrow hopefully! Also you've reminded me I need to buy my photo thingy for Tony Head - I get to meet my namesake! YAY! *so excited*

Delightful! Ideally I'd like to book by Sunday at the latest, so as soon as you know please do hollar :)

Heh, you're going to be such a fangirly aren't you? XD this is going to be so much fun! haha.
Erin Giles: such a dorkerin_giles on February 23rd, 2008 02:00 pm (UTC)
I can guarantee I will either be a gibbering mess or so high you'll have to scrape me off the ceiling by Saturday night!

And both my friends are fine with the hostel share! How do you wanna do it?! We book a room each or I book both or you book both?!
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Miss me?cs_whitewolf on February 23rd, 2008 06:18 pm (UTC)
Haha, well either way I'ma sure we're gonna have a blast!

What time do you think you'll arrive in Manchester? And I don't mind how we book it, though I'm not sure if I'll have enough to book both rooms this weekend :S We could always book a room each? I should be able to scrape that much up before pay day XD

OMG! Am getting so very excited about this XD XD XD

I've contained some of my excitement after today's rugby - it is unbelievable how much we suck! But I'm still bouncing slightly... TWO WEEKS! *ahem*

And yeah, I'll book a room and you can book one. And I'll be in Manchester from 11 in the morning, getting the train at stupid o'clock from Aber because I think I was too hyper to care how early I was getting up when I booked the tickets! We can meet you at the station when you get in or meet at the G-mex or the hostel?! I'm not bothered - I'll possibly be on cloud nine and therefore too high to care or notice what the hell's going on - or the fact we lost to England (not that I'm pessimistic)!

Thankfully I was working so have missed most of todays rugby. Not that I'd need to watch to know the outcome these days though XD

Alrighty then! I'll get right on that :D will forward you the details (I assume you're room sharing with me? but if it's one of your friends you can forward them on!)

I should get into Manchester central around 4.30pm on the Saturday. So depending on where you guys are at we can meet. I'd hardly expect you to leave gmex if you're hanging about there just to get me at the station! ;)

Only two weeks!! SQUEE!!! Am getting so very bouncy about it all ::flail::

I've booked a room now. Just had to pay a deposit and I didn't give a time when we'd be there so that's fine! And we'll probably be hanging about the G-mex still or in the pub watching the rugby if I can persuade my friends (they're not rugby lovers - nor are they scottish) *sighs* But yeah, just give us a call or a txt when you arrive! :)

*bounces with you* I've got 3 essays to do before then though... *sighs*

I've booked a room too, also left the arrival time blank- will forward to you asap :)

I think my rough plan for the sat is to jump into G-mex first, then to the hostle to drop off stuff, then to the pub (or whatever!) for the lolz. and rugby if you're still up for that ;)

omg you poor thing! Still, let the squee keep you going, sure you'll pull them off!
