Mischievous Muse in Europe

Wheeeeeeeeeeee!  Apologies for the squeeing, but yes, it is true.  I am going!  Flying to Barcelona tomorrow night, then driving to Montpellier in the south of France for a few days, then flying to London for another few, back on Sunday 18th.

Can anyone say wine?  cheese? Shakespeare?  Definitely going to see both Titus Andronicus and Coriolanus at the Globe, although it will be a bittersweet experience sans my Divine Mark Rylance — also hoping to catch Hayfever with Dame Judi Dench, and perchance Derek Jacobi in A Voyage Round my Father.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!


Called my friend Nader, who's a friend from the RADA days, and will get together with him and his g/f as well. Must stop, dying from the happies! Wheeeeeeee!

<3 A

So you are coming to this side of the Atlantic without coming to Finland ? And you are telling it a day before you are travelling ? I feel very, very hurt... I have to re-consider my holiday in PA...

Just kidding (but got you scared, didn't I ???) *hahhaa* Seriously, if you just would have told me about it a bit earlier, I could've arrange myself flights e.g. to London (I'm such a cosmopolitan, you know !!!) and see YOUR London and maybe learn to like it more. (Remember, I can easily name 10 cities that I enjoy more).

Have fun and enjoy your stay ! Turvallista matkaa ! And have one cider for me too :)

Hugs from your Kiu

p.s. I do not think that you know this, but the soccer World Cup started yesterday and England, France and Spain are all participating... So be prepared to encounter all of Europe's soccer hooligans during your stay :)

You still can arrange flights, say thursday -> Sunday next week? I didn't know until yesterday, so couldn't tell any sooner :)

And you'd better come to PA and very soon too or I'm simply gonna wither away from missing you... no fun!

Soccer hooligans, eh? Gorram >.<

Hey Bart,

Not making it to Amsterdam this trip, but you have my word on it, if I'm gonna be knocking around there in the future, I will send word immediately - how wonderful it would be to meet one's blog-friends!

Oh come on Moph, you KNOW how good I am at nagging. *nag* *nag* *nag* - might be easier just to bite the bullet and do the meme? :P
