The preparations begin

The preparations are beginning for the long awaited pilgrimage of the The Sisters to Londoom and our audience with the Lord Teninch Himself.

This year, as with the previous pious pilgrimages unto thrust stage of Shakeyland and the more intimate venue of the Novello, our stalking is being planned with military precision.

The worshipping will of course begin at a local hostelry with line of sight to the place of worship. We believe that on the first pilgrimage of 2011, we will be welcomed at the hostelry by some acolytes of pervitude from the twitterverse. From there we will move to claiming the front positions at the Stage Door to be entertained by the great unwashed rushing by, unaware of the Greatness which resides mere feet from where they race down the road. We will be sustained by Cupcakes which bear the visage of our Lord (some of which we may even donate unto the Door Security man and, when they finally emerge, Lord Ten and Lady Catherine).

Once we have consumed some further alcoholic beverages to help us to recover from a close encounter with the Teninch, we will return to the place of worship and take our seats (towards the rear on this occasion) to witness first hand the beauty that is David Tennant proclaiming the words of the Bard on the boards.

Ere leaving Londoom, we will avail ourselves of the Little Shop and purchase some MAAN goodies to relocate to the frozen North and the land of the roundabouts. We may even sing our praise to the Lord on the tubey people conveyor thingy back unto the Mond of Rich to rescue the wee Honda Jazz from the clutches of the Londoom Parking Nasties!

Let all Pilgrims join in the fun!! Onward Perving Soldiers, marching to the Lord!

There are some lovely pics there, sisters- I particularly like the last one.... can't think why! :)

I do envy you, it seems like so long ago since I traipsed to Londoom to witness His Gorgeousness first hand for a fleeting moment or few.

I may, as I've said before, have to go up anyway and lurk near the stage door at the appointed hour(s?) to see if my luck gets any better...

Life's a bit of a roller-coaster at the moment; we have serious illness in the family.

Some of the up and down has been to do with DT, too, hence me writing on here; I'm disappointed to find that DT won't be signing autographs at the Big Screen Event on 14 August, although we're assured that he WILL be on the red carpet and hosting the premier of the film. I just hope I can get to speak to him. I'm gonna bring something to give him, so that might help.

On the upside (assuming nothing terrible happens at home) I've managed to snaffle tickets for the last night of MAAN! YAY!

Fingers crossed, as I said, that I'll be able to make it - ditto for my best friends (although we can't all go together, sadly) - we've ALL had seriously ill members of family within the last month and so things are by no means certain.

But I have to be hopeful.

Well once again I was foiled! I completely failed to meet DT at the Empire Big Screen event, although I know others did. I still loved Fright Night though! Looking forward to seeing it again on its opening day!
Also really looking forward to Much Ado at the beginning of next month and hoping I have more luck at the stage door this time... ever hopeful!

Oh, and I left a bag of goodies with the lovely Steve (who says although he's heard rumours of having a fan club he's not seen any evidence!) for The Lord - including home-made muffins, and so I hope he managed to get it all. I really hope he enjoys it.

I was very unsubtle and put my name and address on the cards I put in with it and I even included an SAE so I'm gonna try to forget about it for the next few months and hope for some sort of reply in the form of a piccy or something...
