Be positive. When there's a light at the end of the tunnel, remind yourself it isn't a train.  
So many things to say.

First of all, we're on day 7 of the mothpocalypse. By that, I mean that we didn't have a good hard freeze this Winter, and now we are OVERRUN by moths. It is a swarm of Biblical proportions, folks. And so, so gross. I opened up our attic space to find out why the air conditioner wasn't working, and was dive bombed by no less than two hundred moths when I turned on the light. I screamed, flailed, tripped going out the door and slammed it behind me as if the moths were zombies that wanted to eat my brain.

I don't like moths. They got in my hair. Gross.

Fortunately, they'll all die soon. And I'm not sad. One of my friends said it best: I used to feel bad for moths; they're butterflies without the fun colors. But they've gone to far.

Second, I took the job as the costumer for ALT's upcoming production of Les Miserables. We're one of the first Community Theatres in the country to get the rights, and that's awfully prestigious. I'm pretty excited about it, I won't lie. Les Miz is one of the first shows I ever saw on Broadway at the tender age of 18. It was a life-changing trip and I remember being spellbound during that show, and being utterly bereft, actually weeping at the story.

So I get to costume it, being that I can't sing. Not like that. And I like to costume the first show of the season. Especially if it has a French name.

Thirdly, Nolan and I are going to London at the beginning of June! It's been a long time coming, and we're going to see shows and do touristy things. I know there are some girls on my friends list that are British. Can you help us out? Is there anything we definitely can't miss?

Lastly, I got a shot in the rear end this morning, and it did not feel good. There was an infant in the exam room next door getting his immunizations, and although I did not wail loudly like he did, I can certainly understand the impetus. That crap hurt.

And that's all the news fit to type!

I am right there with you about the moths, and I've never even been attacked by them. Also, butterflies are just as gross as their plainer brethren.

Yay for Les Mis! Looking forward to seeing pictures of your costuming! I've seen the show at least three times, and have cried every time.

I'm not that familiar with London (since I'm from up north) but I went to the London Dungeons back in February and I'd definitely recommend it. It takes about two to three hours and it's so much fun. Also it's right by London Bridge tube station, you literally walk out and turn right and you're there.

Hit Top Shop at Oxford Circus if you're going shopping. It has five floors, it'll amaze you. Leicester Square for the cinema (although it's expensive).

Do you know which shows you'll be seeing yet? Generally you'll need to book well in advance. Last time I went I used lastminute.com and got top price seats for Legally Blinde at 50% off, we were right in the centre on the third row.

Hmmm...I don't know what else. Safe to say, you've picked the best possible year to come to London. It's going to be intense this summer! (Go Team GB!)

Oh! And you of course have to go to the Harry Potter Studio Tour! I assure you, you will not be disappointed!

Oh my gosh! Les Mis will be WONDERFUL! I'm so sad I won't be able to see you guys perform it. I love that music SO SO much.

AND LONDON! I'm jealous. SO SO jealous! I'm sure you will both have a WONDERFUL time!

This is what I could pull up from my sightseeing in London tad. ;) One of the entries is a dedicated sightseeing post so hopefully it will help. I wrote it out in May 2008, but most of the info shd still be current.

Also, those moths sounds insanely creepy. I would have screamed my lungs out too.

Looking at my tags while looking for my London sightseeing tags above, I just realized that I've had you as a friend for over six years. *hugs*

"But they've gone too far" made me LOL.
