London v.1

I know, I know, I know. Too much time between posts and nothing super substantial in any of them. I'm sorry, but I am here to correct that!

Let's start back in Newcastle:

We arrived safely and worked with new locals for the first time since arriving in the UK. It was odd to say the least. We are by far the most spoiled people right now since we don't have to re-teach new people every week. I missed my locals! I had also been feeling like poop, and so I took myself to the doctors on Wednesday, which happened to be my birthday. Wound up that the reason it felt like I swallowed a handful of tacks was because I had a pretty severe case of tonsillitis. I've never had this before, so how was I supposed to know! Antibiotics and things were looking up. We finished Newcastle without any other incidents.

Then we were in Manchester:

Load in was the same story different location. At this point, the whole show is the same shit different city. But I like it. It means that we've gotten into a routine. I ended up going back to the doctors for more antibiotics to finish clearing up above condition. *sigh* Then the rest of the week went by quite swimmingly. I went to a theatre show while there. I attended "The Witches of Eastwick" which was based on the movie with Cher and Jack Nicholson. It was great! And so far from the family entertainment that we have for this show. It made me giggle. It was nice to see a show that had adult content. Acutally, it was all adult content. Ha!

Next stop: London:

We travelled on a Monday to get here, which was nice yet not nice at the same time. I always feel like I'm loosing a day when we travel on Mondays. This could be due to the fact that I didn't do anything on Monday. Tuesday I went to Stonehenge, and the one in Asubury (sp?). Pretty awesome rocks standing in some fields. :) Wednesday was work and so was Thursday. I'm hoping that I will have time to go to some shows here in London, as I really want to see Wicked. I cannot believe that it has been out for so long and I still haven't managed to see it.

In other news, I have read the entire "Twilight" series, and I thouroughly enjoyed it. I will be voting in the elections! I have my ballot and it will be on it's way home very soon. Just as soon as I find the post office. Much easier said than done. I'm not sure when I'm going to get photos up, can't gurantee anything. I know. I said that I would do that on a regular basis as well. You know what they say about good intentions... I may also be going to see Body Worlds! It is here at the O2, just like us, and I hope that we will have time to go to it. Work calling...
