  1. 37, 994 - Just renewed my subscription for another year as a Valentine's gift to myself
  2. 37, 988 - I'm a tea person too. Although funnily enough, I tend to drink it more when I'm out and about. I don't drink much tea at home for some reason.
  3. 37, 984 - I was released on the condition I enjoyed the rest of the event Plus, we had plenty of Jedi (and other pilots) to help keep the Dark Side characters in order I've also just found out this morning that there's a Comic-Con in Leicester in June (on my birthday!). If I can find the venue and get to it, that would be an amazing way to spend my birthday!
  4. 37, 982 - Back to reality now - and working out where to put all the Star Wars figures I bought today
  5. 37975 Is your fabric paint costume ready? 37, 979 - My Poe Dameron costume got quite a few compliments - well worth the effort to make it - in the end, it took TWENTY SIX pots of fabric paint to get the flight suit the right colour!! If I can load it, here's a picture of me getting arrested by the Empire:
  6. I went to the MCM Midlands Comic-Con and had a lot of fun. Several people complimented me on my costume (I went as Poe Dameron from Star Wars: The Force Awakens). And I managed to keep my spending within budget!
  7. 37, 973 - Getting excited for the convention tomorrow!!
  8. 37, 970 - About to put some music on now that I'm back from the library I've also done more painting on my costume (and am still slightly scared I'll run out of fabric paint!!)
  9. 37, 960 - All this talk of Achtung Baby inevitably makes me want to listen to it today. I love that album
  10. 37, 955 - Adding one last number before I go to bed
  11. 37, 953 - Counting while waiting for the paint to dry on another part of my costume. I hope everyone is having a nice day so far.
  12. 37, 946 - I've been to Tai Chi, writing group and then been up to my ears in fabric paint working on my costume. Apologies to anyone else in Telford or Shrewsbury looking for bright red fabric paint - I've already bought it all (Seriously, two pots only painted one side of an arm and shoulder of my flight suit. I had 5 pots left which clearly weren't going to be enough. So I went to 3 shops - including one in the next town - and bought 14 more pots of fabric paint. Emptied the shelves. I just hope it is enough to finish my costume).
  13. 37, 944 - A spot of relaxing early evening counting.
  14. 37, 942 - Just popping in to count before I enjoy my Sunday dinner
  15. With IETour, the stage layout with the long catwalk down to e-stage meant there was plenty of rail space to go round. At the first London show, I arrived to the queue at maybe 12.30pm, was about number 300 in the queue and got to be right by the rail near e-stage. A friend who had arrived at 9am got to be right on the rail. With this stage lay-out, it doesn't look like there will be so much rail space, so I would advise getting there as early as you can. Officially, some venues might tell you that you can only queue up outside from 9am or something like that. If you can't be there all day,
  16. In 1987, I was just turning 3 I didn't know who U2 were at that age so I'm very glad that they're doing this JT anniversary tour. As for advice, I'd tell myself to try and avoid the football accident where I got kicked in the head aged about 9. That led to me developing epilepsy which really messed up my later childhood and teen years.
  17. 37, 938 - Rocking out to the Milan 2005 live version of City of Blinding Lights
  18. did you read poems? I read two short stories. The group mainly write short stories, although poems are welcome too
  19. 37, 936 - I'm now starting to work on an essay. And I have to sort out my costume for an upcoming convention
  20. 37, 933 - I would have liked even one photo of Lugo to go with the description. I think I've had enough of looking at archaeological plans for one week The last part of this chapter is about Palmyra, which will inevitably make me sad thinking of how much has been smashed up by lunatics
  21. Oooh... I shall have to try and visit sometime! Today's case study is 'Bracara Augusta' (Braga) which is not really all that far from you. You're pretty much on the Portuguese border in Galicia, aren't you? 37, 922 37 926 Come over whenever you want! The Portuguese border is more or less 3 hours away by car from where I live 37, 927 - Lugo/Lucus Augusta *was* actually mentioned in the case study too! I found that quite amusing. Today is looking at what the Romans got up to in Athens
  22. 37, 924 - recovering from a slight home safety scare with a melting electrical plug!! We've replaced it now, no harm done. Good job melting plastic stinks so badly - made it nice and noticeable!
  23. Oooh... I shall have to try and visit sometime! Today's case study is 'Bracara Augusta' (Braga) which is not really all that far from you. You're pretty much on the Portuguese border in Galicia, aren't you? 37, 922
  24. 37, 913 - Thanks Malahide I only have 3 more assignments and the exam to go.
  25. 37902 Archeology? Interesting. 37, 909 - I'm doing an Open University module on the Roman Empire as the final module of my degree. It does include looking at archaeological evidence and the difficulties of interpreting it when there's not always much to go on.
