Shaz's visit.

Concise version: it was very nice.

The trip did begin a bit badly. Shaz had told me online she'd arrive at 6:15. She'd actually read the information wrong when booking her ticket and arrived at 6:50. To me, who had arrived at 5:45 at Waterloo rush-hour, this was a cause of panic until I found out what was going on.

(But then this was better than expected - we'd originally planned to meet for solely Saturday and Sunday.)

On the Friday we went up to see Nan and Bill and the dogs. Everyone got on well, which was good news. When we returned back here we found we were both at around the same point on Mario & Luigi on the GBA. This sparked us into playing the game together, progressing through the game a bit quicker with both our minds working at it. This went on over most of the weekend.

Saturday, we went to Toys R Us, simply because Shaz hadn't been in one in ages. The collection of items in there wasn't anything special and I think that destroyed a childhood image of hers, of the place being a goldmine of wonderful fun stuff. These days it's just kids racing around on the bicycles hitting everyone. We'd planned to see a movie but changed this for Sunday night, given we'd managed to extend Shaz's time here until Monday. Because of this, we rented Soul Calibur 2 and that entertained a great deal.

On Sunday we watched Kung Pow: Enter the Fist in the morning, and went to the cinema to watch The Last Samurai in the evening, with gamesplaying and someone at work calling to ask when I was coming in to work inbetween (he seemed quite upset when he found out I wasn't going in). I also find a site so Shaz could make herself an LJ icon, and we sorted out her stuff so we didn't have to have a mad panic in getting her stuff packed for Monday.

Monday was a calm day, just dropping Shaz off at the station. I bought her a Dangermouse badge, she bought me a nice bagel. Swings and roundabouts and all that.

I guess overall nothing too interesting happened when the messages are relayed on like this. I had fun though.

    I remembered how to log in on here. Gosh, dredging up the past is like using one of those snakes to get the gunk out of the bathtub. Apparently I…

    This came up while playing FIFA 12. A bit of NBA Elite-style Jesus-posin'! This is also me posting it into LJ to see if I can find a workaround to…

    You know what? I used to write a load of stuff in here. It was only when a family member from back in England asked how long it's been since I got…
