plans now finalised  
I'm going to see Amanda Palmer on Thursday! And Neil Gaiman in Ely when he comes to the UK in August! MY EXCITEMENT CANNOT BE CONTAINED.


And I'm dragging the same friend to both, heehee. Well, I'm dragging her along to Amanda Palmer because of all my friends I think she'll like the music, but I converted her to a Neil Gaiman fan some time ago and she's as excited about that as me. I do so enjoy enabling people ;)

AMANDA FUCKING PALMER?????? That is awesome! AND NEIL GAIMAN!!!!! That's almost better except I hate to compare those two perfect people!

And hooray for drawing people into the world of this awesomeness!

You wait and hope for ages and then two come along at once, like buses lol. So very glad I managed to get the new job last month so that I can afford it - Amanda Palmer is luckily playing close to home for me in Manchester, but the closest Neil was going to be was Birmingham on a work day and just a signing with a queue, not a reading or anything - high cost and would need a day off and still might not even get a signiture - so we're going to Ely and making a trip of it :D

As bad as I seem at enabling people online, I'm probably worse offline *grins*. I'm the person going but you would really, really like this book! a lot.

Heee! That's fantastic. I was really hoping to finally get to see Amanda but I can't afford tickets again. I live about 7 hours drive from where she is playing so I can't just turn up to ninja gigs either. Last time she was here I made a point of being much closer to Sydney but she didn't do any ninja gigs that day.
I will get there one day!

Luckily Amanda is playing close to home for me, but if I hadn't gotten the new job last month I wouldn't have been able to afford the transport to get to any of the Neil Gaiman events - the closest ones that are readings and not just the Birmingham queue up and pray signing are about 4 hours by train, plus a bit of bus and walking. We're going to make a trip of it :) 7 hours, wow, yeah, that's no good for a ninja gig. A ninja gig would be amazing though! Hope you get to one at some point!

I have to drive an hour and a half just to go shopping or go to the doctor. We just live in the middle of nowhere right now.

We have Ruth's family that we can stay with and some friends in Sydney. If we stayed there we'd be about an hour away on the train. We just can't afford the dog boarding to go away. Amanda is touring here in September though so maybe by then.

Hope you have a blast
