What is this feeling?

I have had a busy week this week, a refreshing change from my usual existence of relentless foruming with the background of Russell Brand podcasts, manic bedroom-dancing to Jack Penate or sitting on countless forms of public transport where I wonder all of life's big issues (Why is Brendan Cole so incredibly unattractive? Do Oreo's taste good? Will anyone replace Bill Bailey on Buzzcocks?)

So I've actually ventured, blinking and rubbing my eyes in comic disbelief, into social situations. I expected a float, a parade to celebrate and appreciate this, but this did not happen. The downside to this is that I am completely tired, and today I've lounged on my bed, sniffing Vapo-rub like a junkie and re-read a favourite fic which had me all dreamy-eyed and sentimental.

Well, more than usual.

On Monday I went to my lecture, slowly sank into my desk as Ms Renaissance went on-and-on-and-on about The Faerie Queene. My phone rang near the end and due to my gorgeous pal having a spare ticket this led to a madcap dash to the station to see THE MIGHTY BOOSH LIVE. I still can't think about it properly, I end up murmuring about curls and dressing gowns. It was beyond amazing.

Tuesday was my forum meet-up Tea. We were controlled, ladylike and respectful. Alternatively, we could be seen as being loud, sweary and squealy.

Aussie money. Isn't it pretty? Some floozie tart on the back of one note.

I got gifts from my wonderful pals. Sweet treats from Vienna and the cutest hot water bottle from my Sweetlove pal.

Look at the effort. 2 points.

This creation was made during the tea. Mr Pain Raisin (pronounced payne-reaison)

Wednesday was Wicked! A musical I had been longing to see for years.

Beautiful set.
Very scary dragon that moved. Due to our amazing front-row seats, I was terrified it would fall upon my head. I spent the first 10 minutes of the show imagining the headlines,

'Young girl dies, by dragon defying gravity'

Good one huh?

The map of Oz. Which is indeed, pretty as a picture.

Tomorrow is the BIG forum meet-up. Lock up your sons....well please just stay inside citizens.

I can answer one of your Life Questions: Yes, Oreos do taste good, especially if you dunk them in coffee. Mmmm.
