I can hardly believe it. I was really beginning to think I'd never see him again - that my last real-life glimpse would be of him being whisked off in a maroon car on the Oxford Murders set. Of course, when I read this latest news I immediately started thinking 'What if he cancels - what if I can't get there because of something in RL, what if, what if.... but then I thought, 'Stop that!! Enjoy this while you can. So, for now, I am wallowing in the wonderful knowledge that Elijah is coming to London on 24th Oct and I am going to see him again. Oh happy, happy day:)
Oh, isn't it just wonderful!!! I had a feeling that you'd get there if you could.
Carol and i are going, and our early tickets are booked. Just have to sort out accomodation and travel.. mere details compared to getting the ticket!
That was my first thought too.. what if he cancels.. But this is for the film, it's not a personal choice, so the chances are he'll be there. They have a steampunk exhibition lined up, and even a steampunk band to play in the evening.. so yes, i'm going to wallow too.. :)))))))) Happy Days xxx
Right - I've booked our early tickets (yes, hubby will be in tow as usual!!).
and even a steampunk band to play in the evening
This is at the party at the Novotel on the night? Have you booked for this yet? Can't help but feel a certain person could be there!! So, that means I'll have to book the hotel for two nights. Do you know which hotel you're staying at yet?
"This is at the party at the Novotel on the night? "
What!!.. i didn't realise the group was playing at a party, i thought they would be playing at the convention centre.. Can anyone get in, or do you have to be a guest? Just checked the prices, and it's way beyond my means... :(
Are you booked yet? We're staying at the Custom House Hotel, which is just across the road from the Expo, and is very reasonable. (It could be a complete dive, but who cares ..lol) We've also booked tickets for the party, and the travel is sorted, so it's all systems go.. yay!!! I'm SO excited you wouldn't believe.. or maybe you would :D
When I first read your comment we still weren't booked - I was still thinking about the Novotel because it's where the party will be, it's close to the centre and I feel sure E will be staying there!! But I knew we just couldn't afford it so I looked at the Custom House and you're right - far more reasonable, close and it looks nice from what I've seen. So I've booked!!
>>I'm SO excited you wouldn't believe.. or maybe you would :D<<
That was my thought too, that E would be staying at the Novotel.. but then i thought that as he's a guest of Universal Pictures, then it's quite possible that he'd be booked into one of the bigger hotels in the city. It was really tempting though, especially as i'm sharing with Carol, so it would be half the price.. and i know i'll be kicking myself if it does turn out to be his hotel.. but the Custom Hotel is so much cheaper, and still local. So we'll be in the same hotel.. yay!!! Much better to enjoy the squee!! hee!
btw.. just had a thought.. do you know what Pam's itinery is. Will she be with him i wonder. I'd love to have the chance to see/meet her.
Ah well - even if he does stay at the Novotel it doesn't mean we'd get to see him, I suppose. And of course, we don't know if he'll go to the party - but I do think the steampunk thing sounds like something that would interest him, so fingers crossed!
I'm not sure about Pam's itinerary but she does seem to be with him a lot lately so it seems quite possible she could come:)
Many thanks - I can still hardly believe it!! Oh, and the accommodation is sorted now - I think Belle is sharing with her friend but we've found a much more reasonable (price-wise) hotel which is still close to the Expo:)
Many thanks Blossom - can't believe I'll be seeing him again (all being well)! This is actually the longest I've gone without seeing him since the first time in Oct 03 - it's 2yrs 8mths since Oxford Murders - I was getting serious withdrawal symptoms:D
I've decided against going - it's a busy time for us and difficult to get someone to look after the kids. And now that I saw him twice in New York and was so close to him, I'm not too sad about that decision - although I would have loved to meet you and the other LJers who are going. Oh well. Next time!
