I know, it’s been a long while. How’s everyone?
Me, well, I’m two weeks into my summer vacation, and I admit to enjoying a few extremely lazy days lately.
However, here’s the big news, are you ready? In four days I get on a plane to visit England for two and a half weeks!!! I’ve been planning the trip for the better part of a year now, and have been actively counting down the days since February. Now it’s finally here, and I’m nearly ready to crawl out of my skin with excitement! I’ve never been out of the US before. I’ve always wanted to visit England, as do most of my friends, given the number of them who’ve begged to stow-away in my suitcase the past few weeks. There’s the Flashing Blade podcast picnic on the 2nd of July, where I’ll get to actually meet many of the people with whom I’ve only tweeted or Skyped or Facebooked or such [my inner grammar nerd is really rebelling at turning all of those words into verbs, but as I’m on vacation, I shall tell her to shush]. Incredibly looking forward to seeing friends in person!
And, most importantly of all, I’ll have over two weeks together with my fella. You know, on the same continent, which will make a nice change. Yes, *blush* as pretty much everyone knows by now, my co-host Dave and I are a couple. Have been for quite awhile now. I can see the knowing grins of our PDAIS listeners from here. Yeah, you were right, guys 😉 Though we’ve tried to be a bit discreet, as long-distance is hard enough without everyone watching, I suspect this will come as a surprise to no one at the picnic… or on the twitters.
We’ve got such adventures planned! In addition to the picnic, there’ll be Shakespearean theater [Tennant and Tate in “Much Ado About Nothing”!], touristy wanderings, the Doctor Who Experience, and all kinds of wonderfulness. Hence the update here on the blog. I’m going to try to write down some of my England adventures– partially so I don’t forget how marvelous they all were amid the whirlwind of what I know will be a blazing fast two weeks, and partially to let my friends enjoy vicariously, the second best thing to stowing away. Our goal is to do a few podcast discussions together and put those up on the PDAIS feed, so these might act as a supplement to those as well. Anyway, adventures await!
