    I'm happy today because I was selected by my school district to help write our new 7th grade science curriculum. There's five of us I think, so I'm very honored to have been chosen.

    We are so much more complicated than our names.

    That sounds pretty cool HK!

    I'm happy today, because I finally completed my thesis. Have to wait for a date to be set for my presentation and then I'll be 99% done with my studies.

    On another note, it feels pretty sad that this place is so dead.

    I'm happy today, because yesterday was a Lion King day!

    First met Simba and Nala from the London production.
    Later that evening, met Jonathan again who used to play Simba.
    And to end the evening, again, Matthew Broderick, who we all know I presume ^^

    Haha, no, it was all in one day

    We got to London about 9.30, because the musical pop-up (workshops, info on costumes from Lion King & Aladdin, things like that) on Covent Garden opens at 10.
    We had no intention of going to see Come From Away, but Adam wanted to try and see if we could get 20 £ front row tickets, which you can get when box office opens at 10 am.

    So he went there, got the last 2 tickets available for that day (they have a few tickets every day for 20 £ up front at box office).

    After that we went to Covent Garden to see the musical pop-up, but since I didn't really knew what it was about, we were out of there in like, 20 minutes.
    At 4 pm there would be a Lion King performance and signing.
    So in the meantime we just walked around, shopped, and then ended up on Leicester Square, where they were playing Babe (movie about a pig) on a big screen, which was cool! Watched it until the end, and then it was time to go back to the pop-up thing.

    So there we met Simba & Nala who are currently in the musical on West End.
    And they signed my TLKoB book.

    After that, got some food on Leicester Square, and the next movie they were showing was Groundhog Day, watched the last 25 minutes of that.
    (never liked that movie though)
    Come From Away started at 7.30
    Seats seemed absolutely terrible, and after me complaining how they should be ashamed to sell these ... :/
    The show started, and they turned out very much alright!
    Thing is, they sit on chairs alot, and I couldn't even see the chairs, so I was upset I wasn't going to see anything, but in the end, you did see them sitting down, so it was all good, thankfully.

    After the show, met some of the actors again, got some more autographs, still haven't gotten them all.
    And Jonathan smiles so nice when he sees me ^^ so nice to be recognized, haha.
    First time I seen Lion King musical, he was the Simba, and left quite the impression <3

    Then, we went to the theater where Matthew is doing his play, and since I didn't get a nice picture with him last time when we did see the play, we wanted to try again, and we saw him again ^^
    He did his last show tonight, and will be leaving the UK now, so we had to try again before today.

    Glad it all worked out in 1 day

    ^ What a day, you guys! Sounds super awesome!

    I'm happy today because my friend's wedding yesterday was fantastic <3 I got to sing during the ceremony, right after they made their vows, which was a huge honour and I got so many compliments afterwards - everyone were so kind. Then I got to spend time with some of my dearest friends during the dinner, and even dance with the boyfriend through the night, teehee (Neither of us can actually dance, but it was fun none the less xD) And it was lovely to see how happy the bride and groom were; I am so very happy for them and I'm still riding that wave of happiness from yesterday today, haha

    Yeees, we've been seeing each other for some time now actually, but it hasn't been all smooth sailing so I've kind of kept it under wraps... Going well now though! When we actually get to spend time together anyway, because he's been away on the world scouting jamboree the whole darn summer

    This was by far the best wedding I've been to, I think mostly because I got to actually enjoy the dinner and evening - this couple was sensible and placed friends together at the tables so we could, you know, actually have a good time without the awkward, forced socialising you get otherwise. I know the idea is to *~get to know new people~* and stuff, but I'm like bugger that, I just want to hang out with my friends

    Sounds like you had such a fantastic day Nathalie! And you met Matthew again, so cool!
    And such a fun, special wedding for you Kanu! Congrats!

    Oh how I dislike that forced socialising part on weddings. Having to sit with strangers, because you're in the same age group or whatever. And it doesn't help that I can be very aloof around strangers so...I remember plenty of awkward, draining times at weddings.

    I am still happy about last Friday, lol.

    One of the actors in Come From Away was leaving, David, and we hadn't met him yet, so I really wanted to before he would leave.

    So we just took a late afternoon trip to London.
    We didn't see the show this time.
    We stood at stage door about 15 min before the show ended, and we could hear some tunes at some points when it was very quiet outside, hehe.

    Show is done, actors starting to come out.
    Another guy is waiting too, he hadn't said much else besides wanting a picture and autograph, so I wasn't really paying attention, until suddenly, he's talking Dutch to one of the actors
    With an amazed look on my face, I turn to them, and say 'Holland???'
    The actor then starts talking 100% perfectly in Dutch, he lived there when little.
    So cool ^^

    I asked Jonathan last time if David had left yet, which he did, and we hadn't met him yet.
    This was 4-5 weeks ago.

    Jonathan comes out, goes to some people, them comes to us, and is like 'hey you guys!'
    And asks me if I've seen David yet?
    This man's memory is amazing, lol.

    Took a while for David to come, as one of the real people the story is based on was there today and they were chatting.

    But, we met him, along with all the others from the cast we hadn't met yet.
    So I now also have all autographs ^^

    We went to comic con Liverpool yesterday, as there was a small "Sabrina the Teenage With" reunion.
    I've always liked Beth Broderick more then the other characters, lol, she plays aunt Zelda.

    Normally both aunts would be there, but Caroline Rhea (aunt Hilda, the silly one) cancelled.
    She was replaced by Jenna (can't remember her full name), but she plays Libby, the mean girl in school.

    Also, Steve Guttenberg was supposed to come, bus he doesn't like germs at all, so he cancelled due to coronavirus. Last time we met him last year, he was wearing gloves.
    So that was a shame for Adam, I already have a picture with him, but Adam wanted one.

    Oh well.
    Every actor had hand gell at their table, but everything is pulled out of proportion so big by "the people" themselves. It's mad. Like, toilet paper?? haha
    Anyways, Adam met someone from Pirates of the Caribbean, first thing the guy does is asks us our names, and then gives both of us a hand.
    (though, I seen one sign with 1 actor saying "please no handshakes")

    When I had my pictures with Beth & Melissa, Beth had her arms open wide when I walked towards her and hugged me, and then put her arm around me for the picture.
    Same with Melissa.

    People just need to stop being idiots really.
    If you didn't use hand gell (and aparently toilet paper) before, don't be a hypocrite and spoil it for people who buy it on a regular basis.

    The Q&A's were really well done, everything started on time, ended on time. (over a 1000 people attended Elijah Wood's Q&A).

    The pictures were a mess, they were implying I was a liar or a fraud, when I went in for my picture with Beth.
    Surely, NO ONE in Great Brittain has my surname
    "you're name has been scratched on the list, you had your picture"
    Uhm, no I haven't, I had 11 am entry so couldn't have made the previous shoot "but your name is crossed off the list".
    I bought them from the official website, since there is no data reach inside, I can't show you.
    "*sigh* ... alright, go through then"

    He sighed at me? lol.

    Beth was soooo sweet, so I'm happy ^^

    I saw the photos on facebook! Seemed pretty nice.

    It's a good thing you managed to get the pictures, despite the messed up situation with the people controlling the list. Also lucky I guess, since a lot of cons are now massively cancelled.
